My understanding is, if I increase the ISG, it will make my bolus dose weaker. So an ISG of 3.5 will deliver less insulin as opposed to an ISG of 3.0.
But how come when my current BG is below the target, a higher ISG will result in a stronger bolus dosage? I’m a bit confused.
I played with my pump wizard to test out what the bolus amount was in this scenario, I entered my current BG as 3mmol. Target is 6mmol.
So when ISG was 3.5 (more sensitive), the bolus I had to give for 10g of food was 1.0unit. But when I set the ISG to 3 (less sensitive) , for the same 10g, the bolus was 0.75Unit.
Can someone please explain to me why, shouldn’t the bolus amount be more for ISG 3 because it’s less sensitive?
When my BG is above target, the opposite happens whic is what I’m expecting.
