Barb, don't you mean divided by, not minus??

If I did it the way you suggest above, 1500 - 30 would be 1470, and I
don't think I want to get lowered that much!!!!

But by dividing,  if my total daily insulin dose is 30u, then for
Regular, 1500/30 = 50, which actually IS just about the amount that one
unit of insulin will lower me by. I find that Humalog works about the
same as Regular, but I know others are different!
