My I:C for breakfast is 1:10 and I don't ever take more than 3 units Apidra, so I just don't eat more than 30 carbs for breakfast. For lunch my I:C is 1:12, so ditto. Dinner I have a bit more leeway at 1:17 or even 1:18, so for 45 grams of carb I would take 3 units unless I was fairly low then only 2. When I get to the states in a couple weeks I'm gong to look into 1/2 unit syringes to have more flexibility.
From breakfast to 8pm at night, I have an I:C ratio of 12 so I would take 3.75 units. From 8pm to midnight my I:C is 17 so I would take 2.65 units. I am experimenting with taking less of a bolus if I am going to do something strenuous after a meal so I don't have an answer for that as of yet :)
My I:C ratio is 1:13 (but varies during the day - so this is my breakfast ratio) - I'd take 3.5 units - but that all depends as well on my BG at the time of eating - since I aim for 5.5 mmol/l - 100 mg/dl during the day.
