RE: [IP] How DOES the MM Bolus Wizard do the math?



Hi Ernie,

I just got the 512 because I wanted the Bolus Wizard.  The manual does
not give the algorithms.  FWIW, I'm a little unhappy with it because I
believe that it overestimates the amount of insulin left working from
previous boluses.  My suspicion is that they include the basal insulin
in this amount, which really shouldn't apply to correction dosages,
because basal insulin is strictly for your body's needs without food.

Subject: [IP] How DOES the MM Bolus Wizard do the math?

Hi,

Does anybody have any idea how the math works in the MM Bolus Wizard for
the
MM 512, and 712?

 

Or can someone point me to the formulas or algorithms? I'm interested in
how
to calculate Active insulin, etc.

 

To those who already have the 512, does the manual outline the math
formulas
used ?
