Re: [IP] Insulin to carb ratio



Heck MM has a table based on the wight of a person to get their I/CHO ratio.

  For myself, I would just use 4 units also, see how it worked, and adjust as
  necessary for next time.  If you want to do the math, first figure 1/15 =
  0.067 (one unit of insulin divided by 15 units of carb = 0.067 units of
  insulin per gram of carb).  Then 62 * 0.067 = 4.15 (62 grams of carb times
  0.067 units of insulin per gram).  So the end result is 4.1 or 4.2 units of
  insulin for 62 grams of carb.
