Need to determine one’s target blood sugar (e.g. “120” fasting in the am)
Important to determine one’s insulin “sensitivity ratio”. (i.e. how many “mg/dl’s” one unit
of insulin will lower). For instance, I may be able to lower a 180mg/dl blood sugar to 120 mg with just 1 unit of humalog insulin. Knowing this ratio will give me a formula for correcting blood sugars. For every diabetic, this ratio will be different.
