[IPu] Fw: [IP] correction factor/insulin sensitivity

Hi All,
Just goes to show yet again how YMMV.
I just assumed that the higher the BG the 
the greater the amount of Insulin required (lower sensitivity).

Yet, here is Antonio's experience that a BG of 11 -12 has a 
lower Insulin sensitivity (for him) than say a BG of 16 + mmls ...

 Dear Elizabeth,
 While I know this does not directly answer your question, FWIW, I 
thought it might shed some light on your problem. 
 I have found that for ME, when I am extremely high, say in the 300's to 
 400's, I need just a tad less insulin to correct than for just a 
 "regular" high of like 200 or 240, if that makes any sense.  Since I 
 don't run THAT high that often, I haven't really been able to test out 
 this theory, but perhaps this is what you are experiencing.  If your 
 correction factor works most other times, perhaps it is just when you 
 are really high that slightly less correction is needed.
