Re: [IP] Re: Paradigm 512 Upgrade

Just curious about something. We're starting with our first pump soon, and
it will be the 512 or the Cozmo, both of which calculate boluses. I noticed
that both of them have a feature where they estimate how much insulin is
still active, based on how long ago you last bolused, and subtracts that
estimate from its recommended correction bolus (using something like 10%
used in first hour, 30% by second hour, etc.). When you calculate boluses
manually, is that something you take into account, or is this something new
that the bolus wizard does?
