Re: [IP] Silhouette users

>>>Actually, the only thing that does change is the priming. When pumping
U50, the
pump does the calculation for how much volume vs how much actual insulin.
U50 is
50% insulin 50% dilutent.  When you tell the pump to give, lets say, 2
units, it actually gives 4 units of volume, 2 units of insulin, 2 units of
dilutent.  So, when I told the pump to prime 0.40 units, it actually gave
0.80 units of volume. <snip> Susan >>>

RIGHT ON!! That's what I've been trying to say, as the insulin *strength*
has increased in the same amount of *volume.* Therefore, 0.40 units of
diluted *insulin* requires 0.80u of *volume*. (~_^)
