Re: [IP] Atheletes On The Pump

Tania, I'm sorry it was a typo.  It's actually the 450 rule.  you can access 
it at www.diabetesnet.com/math/450.html.  It takes your current dosage of 
insulin (over a full days period) and tells you how many carbs one unit of 
insulin covers.  Her ratio is 8 gms of CHO per unit of regular insulin.  Most 
folks start out with 15:1.  and adjust accordingly.  Hers is 8:1, however 
15:1 covers her.  I think she's on too much insulin.  God bless
