 This rule of thumb is for regular insulin. For Humalog, the bg's 
 should be relatively flat. If bg's are 50 points high after 1 hour, 
 you must bolus for the 50 points plus that much again for the next 
 hour. Always calculate the 'unused insulin' or 'unused carb' and 
 compensate accordingly. >>
Why is this rule of Humalog the rule?  People without diabetes are often in
the above ranges after meals.
