[IPk] Another day older ...

Well, I've discovered the 'problem' with the Cozmo  while it has 
'insulin on board' (a term copyright by Medtronic, I think), it does not 
have 'food on board', so rather than having a pre-set post-meal target, 
what it does is assume that all your post-meal insulin is going to be 
driving you hypo rather than coping with the food.

The work-around is to accept it when the pump says the corrected-for-IOB 
is no insulin, but go into history and look at the calculation, then say 
you want to correct again, and adjust the '0' to whatever the 
calculation said it should have been, and send it down the pipe.

I am not sure whether it is better to do some mental arithmetic, as I 
did this afternoon, so that I only actually took 'about 1/3' of the 
correction, or to put up the correction target at the times of day when 
I am usually still digesting .....  What do others do?
