For many people, the TTD of Humalog is divided into 1800,
another starting point. The one thing that hasn't been
mentioned, is that many clinicians will use a % formula to
lower the pre-pump TDD by 10 to 25% (another multivariate
decision) before dividing into 1500 (if using R) or 1800 (if
using H).
