[IP] "carb cards"


you have to do this on "microsoft excel".  it is a 'table'.  you enter the
amount of carbs and the appropriate amount of insulin bolus after this.  it
then does all of the math for you .

so you would start with 1 carb  X  bolus
                                   2 carb   X bolus
                                    3 carb   X bolus

etc. etc.

my husband did this for geneva and I can't really describe it.  there is a
gentleman online here at IP who told us about it.  once you get the protocol
established,  you can change the ratios and it automatically does the math
for you.  you then print them at a very small size.  as I
mentioned..baseball/credit card size.  then laminate.

so, if you or someone that you know is savvy with doing "tables" on your
microsoft program,  you should have no problems.

good luck!
