Re: [IP] Am I Calculating This Right

When I have a low before a meal, I subtract from my bolus. If high I add to it.
If I were 36, I would calculate:
bs reading minus goal bs
                                                                           - 84
divide by insulin sensitivity
                                                                        = -1.2
then calculating 63 CHO as 4 units (1:15 ratio)  
add the two together
                                                                            +  4
This seems to work best for me, however I know for some it works best if they treat the low first.
As an aside, there recently was a discussion about airport security. I just returned from a trip and at the Detroit airport the machine was be triggered repeatedly and I thought it would be a good test for me. I went through without a hitch. I'm on the MM 507C.
