Adjusting I:C ratios - "acceptable" bump after eating

Started this discussion. Last reply by Brian (bsc) Oct 11, 2011. 22 Replies

For those of you who (either on pump or MDI) self-adjust your I:C ratios, what do you consider an "acceptable" increase in BG 1-2 hours after eating, if the carb count is right ? 30 mg/dl, 50-60 ?…Continue

"See, the 200% basal rate seems huge to me, especially when in the same paragraph you talk about noticing differences with little changes like 0.025 units. A -10% basal rate has a huge impact on my blood sugar (I use -10% overnight on days I…"

"The self-reporting of bg numbers/curves is heavily self-selected towards those with good to superb control. Don't be surprised you don't see the victims of crazy BG train, under-reporting."

"My basals were originally set based on the diagnostic cgm test run prior to my getting a pump. Although some tweeks were needed, it is working pretty well: 12A - .300; 4A - .500; 7A - .500; 8P .550. Will be having another cgm diagnostic next week,…"

"It seems like this discussion is falling along male/female lines as well. Not sure what is happening in medical research these days, but there was a big fuss some years ago that testing on new meds., etc were done only on males."

"I don't know. In the past, I would say that I have way too much variability, day to day, to make that level of fine tuning work. But, things might be better from here on out. That's big my biggest argument against a pump - one morning I…"

Hi! I used to live in Purchase when I was attending SUNY Purchase. I started my band out there, but now we are separated geographically as I am living in Chicago. But I love Westchester and flew out of HPN quite frequently to come home. I wondered if that had something to do with your username!

Our Annual Campaign is coming!

Would you consider helping by writing a short comment/testimonial about your
experiences at TuD? The main message for the campaign this year is that no
one with diabetes should ever feel alone. Messages from our community give
people a real-life, personal sense of how valuable TuDiabetes is to each of
us, how it's changed our lives, etc.

If you can, please include a photo of you doing something diabetic (if that
makes sense LOL). Please post to this group
(http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/why-i-participate-in-this-community), or message to me from my page.

Thanks my friends!
