So I have been trying to calculate my Insulin to Carb ratio and not having much success, yet.
I have tried the 500 formula, which doesn’t work at all for me.
I have tried my carbs ÷ daily insulin, and its not right either, closer but not.
I just don’t seem to find how several people can turn around and say my morning I:C is 1:12 and my afternoon is 1:15 and be so exact when I can’t even find an approximate I:C that work for me.
I’m sure it doesn’t help that my sugar is all over the place in the last few days.
For example today’s lunch, I calculated appx 1:15 for my food, and at dinner time I was at 200 (4hrs+later)
Dinner, I used 1:25 ( I know with that dinner, I don’t need much insulin) and used just one unit to help correct my high, and an hour later I was already below 100, two hours later I was nearing 70, so I ate a cupcake and now at bedtime I’m at 115.
I can’t seem to get a good grasp and it’s a lot of guessing based on what I have learned ( more insulin resistance in the morning, more active during the day more insulin sensitive later on etc
My fingers are getting tired of all that testing ( yes, hopefully my insurance will approve a CGM at some point, but it’s not gonna be any time soon).
