It seems that stright-forward carb. counting is not so stright for
me. There seems to be threshold of insulin, and every added unit
there after have much greater effect.
70 grams of carb. (during lunch) requires for me to bolus about 17
units of Regular. When eating much less, and I do mean less (around
20 grams) It requires 12-13 units.
Using a constant ratio, and some common sense, It seems that about
1/3 of carb. should require about 1/3 of Insulin, while it takes 2/3
Any ideas ?

ain't that a good excuse ?
