Subject: Re: [IP] corrections

Speed of Humalog metabolism is definitely YMMV, but the estimates are that
about 25% of a Humalog bolus is still working at 2 hours.  So you risk
overcorrection, and hypoglycemia, if you bolus 2 hours after a meal.  If,
however, you "guessed" carbs on a food, and you're 325 2 hours after a meal,
a conservative correction may not be out of line :-).
