I have a big question. Does anyone know the method of calculating how much a bolus of say, 0.8 will drop blood glucose?
Sometimes when I enter my BG and carbs I am about to eat, the pump will suggest, for example, 2.3
What is the number that is after the . multiplied by to determine how low the bolus shot will drop BG?
I have seen suggestions of 0.1 0.2 0.3 0.4 0.5 0.6 0.7 0.8 0.9
1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5 1.6 1.7 1.8 1.9
My current carb ratio is 18
- 12 am 0.200
- 8 am 0.500
One unit of insulin drops my BG 50 mg.
I have tried googling this information and found nothing in regards to the calculation method for determining how much the number after the period will drop the BG.
I have read that you can divide the carbs you are going to eat by your ICR-Insulin to Carb ratio, which I think in my case is my ISF-52
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I am bad with math!!!
