Rule 500 - Divide 500 by Take Total Daily Insulin -

Darlene, where did you get this?  That is interesting  I think Allie takes
about 29 or 30 units and she uses a 1:15 ratio, so that one sounds right.

>>>He weights 70#s - gained 1 # in 1 week - but he needs it.
70 # / 4 = 17.4 units for basel rate - this is working out good for him.>>>

Now, I'm don't think this one will work for us.  Because Allie weighs 80lbs.
and that would make her basals 20.  She is only taking about 13.5 I believe
for her basals.  Where does the "4" come from?  If it isn't a standard 4 then
maybe, but when I tried this (just with the math) I knew for her it was way
off!

Susan (mom to Allie, 11 dx'd 8/98, pumping )
