Re: [IPk] Any Suggestions?

Hi there, 

What calulation are you using to determine your insulin bolus requirement. ie 
what target blood sugar are you aiming for?

I normally aim for 8, hence would have taken 3 units at breakfast.

ie.   20g divide by 10,  times 2.5 = rise in blood sugar of 5
      Original blood test was 10.7 add 5 hence resulting blood = 15.7
       deduct target of say 8, hence 7.7 mmols to burn with insulin
       7.7 divide by 2.5 = 3.08   round down, hence 3 units required.

kind regards.
