Re: [IP] Re: total daily insulin requirements



Hi Pam,

My total units per day can vary.  But, Animas has an upper limit of 255
units.  Sometimes my pump will quit as early as 8:00 PM because any more
insulin would exceed the limits.  Then, I start injecting to get me through
for the next four hours.

I weigh 229 and I'm 6' 2"    My carb to insulin ratio is 1:1.

Chris
