Low-Tech Bolus Calculator


This is a short powerpoint presentation which explains a low-tech, personalized system to calculate insulin doses and carbohydrate amounts needed to achieve goal blood sugars. You fill out a form which is provided at the end of the presentation, and with it make a chart like this one (it will be slightly different for each person, based on insulin sensitivity), which can then be used as an aid to figure out how much carbohydrate is needed to fix a low blood sugar and how much insulin is needed to cover specific amounts of carbohydrate.
