Re: [IP] am bolus (and bolus times)


  You ask about when to bolus.  We no longer bolus before Josh eats now 
because of exactly what you said, not eating everything.  So he will always 
do a high correction bolus before eating and then bolus after he eats.  Now, 
depending on how high he is before eating he may calculate his carbs and 
bolus for only HALF and then bolus for the rest after eating.  Thus you have 
started getting some insulin in there to work on the carbs but you have some 
lee-way for what you might not eat!

Good Luck!
