My endo says humalog has a duration of 3 to 4.5 hours.  I definately get
bg lowering in after 3 hours, but not after 4.

I would consider that I have 15-20% of the bg lowering effect of the
initial bolus, calculate the normal bolus for the high and subtract 20%
of the earlier bolus.

As always YMMV.
