[IP] AT WHAT POINT TO MEASURE CORRECTION BOLUS?



ok...... i gave a correction bolus and at two hours i came up with a ratio of 
1:47 points........ at 3 hours i came up with 1:53 points!  do they figure it 
out at the two-hour mark or the three-hour mark?  obviously mine peaks in 
three hours, but who wants to wait three hours to come down to target?  
actually, at three hours i was BELOW target......but people usually eat 
within three hours periods......... i'm sooooooooooo confused!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
here's what happened:  NO FOOD EATEN AT ALL DURING THIS......
9:30......... 312   -gave 3.8 correction bolus-
10:30....... 235
11:30......... 134
12:30........ 100

so my target is 120.... at two hours i was pretty close.... at three hours i 
was too low for comfort!  so again, when measuring and figuring for 
correction bolus, at what hour do you average?  i've seen worksheets for 
recordings from 1-4 hours so what's the mean here?

thanks, 
gina

any suggestions?
