Everyone is different. That is why there is a gauge, that is a starting point, and then every adjusts based on their own physiology and experience. It has taken me about a year to find a ratio and basal:bolus that works for me.
I agree w/Binky that everyone is different. I have a TDD of about 22 u w/approx 50% basal. Mornings I need 1:15, mid afternoon I need 1:23 and late evening and night I use 1:20. I am still “tweaking” trying to decide if bolus or basal is “off” and prob. using same book as you…Pumping Insulin?
YDMV as we all say. I use about 15-20 units TDD based on the carbs for theday. I use 1:15 or 1:18 for dinner carb ratio with a 1:80 correction factor. Usually split about 50/50 or 40/60
thanks everyone, good to know other people are having a similar experience, and thanks for the advice (YDMV - good acronym)
