why don' you mark the outside of the cartridge with a felt tip pen.
Divide it into 5ths or 6ths for the amount you load. I don't think
the mix ratio is real important as long as it is close. Lily has
experienced no problems with the mix at 5 parts H to 1 part R and
there appears to be VERY LITTLE difference in her response both to
basal rate and bolus.
