Re: [IPk] Question ?


Another thought

If the bolus is large ie greater than 8 iu then you may benefit from eg
taking half of the bolus at the start of the meal and the rest approx half
way through.  Soluble insulins contain preservatives which have been known
to cause discomfort in some people

Discuss the bolus splitting approach with Joan

Best wishes
