I'm reading Scheiner's Think Like a Pancreas. According to Table 7-4 Sensitivity to insulin based on daily insulin usage, I would be somewhere below the chart (less than 5) and max about 7. My Lantus is presently 4 and seems to be working ok. Morning fastings ~ 90 - 100 for the past 4 days. My bolus (novolog) may be between 1 - 3 (usually) - unless I have to eat out (that's a whole different story). Total daily insulin dosage : 4 + units.
How would I correct if my BG were >140 but around 200? 1 unit of insulin would decrease my BG by too much. (maybe 1/4, or 18 unit may work) Thus, I've been thinking about a pump. I've considered diluting the bolus insulin too. I'm unsure that I would be comfortable doing this, just in case I get my basal mixed up with my bolus.
