[IP] THE 450 RULE



Michael,

I also got this from The Pocket Pancreas.

The 450 rule says that the number of grams of carbs covered by 1 unit of
Regular equals 450 divided by the total daily insulin dose.

Total Daily Insulin Dose                How Many Grams of Carbs Will One Unit
                                                   of Regular Cover?

20 units                                       22 grams
25 units                                       18 grams
30 units                                       15 grams
40 units                                        11 grams
50 units                                         9 grams
60 units                                         8 grams
75 units                                         6 grams
100 units                                        5 grams
