Re: [IP] Total daily insulin dose

Sheila said:
Shouldn't a person's total daily amount of insulin be split about
50/50 between basal and bolus?

I think this is a YMMV thing; I've been on a pump for more than 18 years and
my split is, and always has been, about 70/30 (basal/bolus).  I don't suffer
a bunch of hypos, and my I/C ratio varies (weird in am - 1:20, and about
1:15 as the day progresses), but if I try to do 50/50, watch out - it's like
the PMS effect!
