Yes.  You should have been given correction information by your 
trainer.  For me, if I'm more than 140 2 hours post meal, I bolus 1 unit 
for each 50 points I'm over.  If I have ketones, then I add some additional 
to cover the ketones.  Your doctor, CDE or trainer should have given you 
instructions for correcting highs.  Which pump are you on?
