RE: [IPp] Target Blood Sugar

My son uses the MM 712 and whenever his blood sugar is below his target, the
pump does a negative correction.  Ours takes the insulin for the food +/-
any correction - any active insulin.    For example: if he needs 2.0 for his
food and then maybe -.9 for a correction and .1 of active insulin.  I
believe our pump would estimate 1.0 for his bolus.  Try looking at the bolus
history to see if the correction has a negative number next to it.  I know
that I often have to write the numbers down on a piece of paper to determine
how the pump calculates the estimated bolus.  Good luck! I know that these
figures are confusing to me sometimes.

 Can anyone answer a question for me?? We are using the Minimed 512 and have
target blood sugar as 140. When my daughter eats a meal and uses the bolus
wizard--let's say she has a blood sugar of 90-which is good, I know. My
is, I thought the pump was supposed to make adjustments for getting her
sugar closer to her target range--but I think it has always gone solely on
insulin/carb ratio that we have programmed. Hope this makes sense.
