Re: [IP] pump bolusing amounts

I am now using 2 units per 15 carbs as per my endo's directions.
When I first started pumping it did seem like I used a lot of insulin but
the units per day then really was 25 -28 units. I understand what you are
Does your ratio seem to be working for you? I found pumping is a very
individual thing.
The reason why my ratio is so high now and my basals are now 2 units is
because of the prednisone I need because of Lupus and sjogren's.
