I have abosolutely no idea what my sensitivity factor is, unfortunately. I’m a complete novice with all of this and my trainer just said to do a 5.5 unit bolus with meals, plus one unit for each 50 points above 150 before meals since I don’t use a count of carbs to determine my bolus dose. For snacks, just 5.5 units. I end up bolusing every 2 to 3 hours.
My basal rates were recently increased, since the rates I started at weren’t quite getting the job done and I’d end up adding 3 correction units to my meal boluses every meal.Talk about insulin resistance! My cells will fistfight the insulin to keep it out. I am on U500 because it takes 200 units of U100 each day to keep my BG below 225.
Now my BG generally is between 120 and 180 with occasional spikes in the 200’s. Not nearly like before when getting below 250 was a major fete.
Any help, advice, links to more information, is extremely welcome.
