Could this be a timing problem, rather than an ammount problem?  If you
don't correct at 2 hours, what happens at 3 - is there some falling off
- that would suggest that you might need to move the injection back by
10 or 15 mins.

The difference between active and inactive is probably to blame - it
will not only make a difference in insulin resistance, but also in
predictability, I find.
