In response to Kevin's problem....I would recommend that you try again when
he is at a normal BS and just "test" it.    I just did it with the same
numbers that you used (with different correction factors of course) and it
reduced my insulin dose by almost half to cover the 40 gram carb and
compensate for the 55 BS.....  the feature seems to be working on my pump...

 I wouldn't know but I assume it has something to do with the fact you don't

kicks into correction factor after you go above the number.
