The machine is only as accurate as the input it is given. It uses a very
simple formula that carb counters used to do in their heads:

Step 1: Carbs * carb ratio = base units
Step 2a: If your BG is too low, then subtract how much you are too low *
sensitivity.
Step 2b: If your BG is too high, then add how much you are too high *
sensitivity - active insulin.
