Sorry, should have been more specific. Carb intake at lunch was 75g / 12 = 
6.25u. BG factor (43 - 120) / 28 = -2.75u. The 28 comes from the fact that 
30 quit lowering highs and 25 drove me down too far. I now keep a 
calculator with very fresh batteries, dividing by 28 is not easy to do in 
my head.
