I'm a T1 with a Medtronic Paradigm. I use the Bolus Wizard and don't think much about how I'm taking.
Once in a while, I check my totals:
Main Menu > Utilities > Daily Totals
My lowest daily total was 40u. My highest was 85u. Monthly avg. was about 55. The numbers surprise me.
I am curious. How much do others pump?
I use between 30 and 40 units a day, depending on food and excersize. I have been d for 35 years, pumping with an Animas 2020 for the past 5 years.
I met with the Medtronic CDE about 3 months ago. She pulled my readings from the carelink USB, and made a bunch of changes to my sensitivity, carb ratio, and basal, for different hours, of the day. She seemed knowledgeable. The problem is that my BS's have been very erratic, since then. My set Basal varied from 0.8u - 3.0u. This seems problematic. I reset all of my settings, more or less averaged them out, removing time changes.
I'm half way through the 4th edition of Pumping Insulin by John Walsh. Everyone else seems to love it, but I'm finding it absolutely unreadable. It is like a combination of every pamphlet, brochure, instruction manual and algebra text book that I've seen. I discover about 1 useful paragraph per 50 pages. Is it just me?
I seem to be pretty stable, pumping 1.1u /hr.
kept dropping. had to bump it down to 0.9
Minimed Revel - range from 14 units (lowest on a very active day) to 30 units. Depends on level of activity and number of carbs eaten (obviously).
Mine is ranges from .6 to 1.1 over 24 hours. TTD ends up around 36 units of Novolog. I am 44 yrs old 6' and 180 lbs. In good shape. Run and cycle for exercise. Best Regards ,Mike
Thanks to everyone for sharing their stats. After some tweaking, my BGs are beginning to stabilize. Right now, I'm cutting out a lot of carbs and pumping 30 - 45u.
I average 35 to 50 units per day, depending on what I'm eating.
Recently, though, I had a cortisone shot and had to increase my basals by 50%, so I'm changing the site like every 2 days instead of 3 1/2. It's finally starting to normalize, though.
apparently 35-50 units...
i eat too many carbs though apparently >_/p>
Last week: 25 - 45u / day. Down to about 35g carb. Much tighter control.
