Re: [IP] Bolus Wizard

You need to set your hypo threshold low enough, so it gives you a 
warning NOT to bolus when your BG is that low and you are consuming 
carbs.  Otherwise, it applies a "reverse correction" algorithm to use 
the consumed carbs to bring your BG up.  Whatever it thinks is enough 
carb grams is not covered with insulin, anything over that is.
