 Rule 500 - Divide 500 by Take Total Daily Insulin -
 500/40 = 12.5 humalog ratio
 500/30 =  16 humalog ratio
  Kap uses 40 and somedays it is 30 units>>>

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
