Re: [IP] Re: humalog duration

Hi Ryan.

Curious, where did you get the below numbers? From your own experience/endo
or is this a common standard to start at when using humalog and a pump?


1. Add up your total insulin requirements as it is TODAY (for you, on R/UL).
 2. Reduce this total by 25%. So, if you take 40 units total today, reduce
to 30.
3. Take the reduced insulin, and apply HALF of it to your basal
So, in this example, 15 units would be spread throughout the day.
4. The remaining insulin will be calculated probably using the 500 rule,

This basically gives the doctor a STARTING point...
