Hello! I started on the Omnipod a few months back. Similarly to MDI, I generally scale back the insulin a bit when I'm bolusing for a snack but have a "lower" bs (ie. maybe 80). Obviously, my pump calculates that for me and suggests a dose. However, I'm noticing that even when I count carbs correctly and take a "reverse corrected" dose, I will spike after the meal. Seems to me that I really have to take almost, if not all, the full dose required based on my I:C ratio even if my bs is on the lower side. I am not sure, but I didn't notice this happening as much on MDI. Course, I had fewer "reverse corrections" on MDI since I only had 1/2 units to play with.
Obviously if I hit 50 or 40, I don't take a full bolus (or any for that matter, depending on the carbs). I'm just talking about reverse corrections for bs readings of around 80-100 (my target being 110 generally).
Does anyone else have a similar experience, or does reverse correction work for most ppl?
