[IP] Re: total daily insulin dose

A 50/50 split of basal and bolus used to be the starting
amounts for buffered Regular insulin. With lispro, a 60/40
split might be the starting point.  Other factors, such as
adolescent insulin resistance, growth spurts, illness,
stress, other medical conditions, menstrual cycles,
menopause, exercise, and some medications might change this
mix. It is all YMMV!
