"Me? I use a 3.5 hour DIA. When I was on MDI I just used 3 and calculated it in a linear manner. So if I did 3 units, at the 2 hour mark I had one unit left. Easy to figure! The Ping calculates it in an algorhythmic maner which means it considers…"

"ISF is how many points one unit of insulin drops your blood sugar. Mine is one unit drops me 45 points. So far, I just have one ISF, but I can see that I should make it different for different times of day. I think combo bolus works very well for…"

"Thanks for the replies.. I checked my pump and confirmed my IOB-2 is "on" and set for a duration of 4 hours. I also checked the Insulin to carb ratio and am currently set for the following: 12:00 AM 1 : 5U 9:30 AM 1 : 6U I am not sure…"

Zoe replied to Rcilink's discussion 'Animas Ping - IOB and corrections' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"I echo Scott's question. "It doesn't take into account the IOB duration" probably means you haven't set it for the 4 hours you want. For corrections, the IOB should be correct based on the DIA and the ISF you set into the…"

"Have you changed the IOB duration? I find pizza is very hard to judge in terms carbs, but are you positive your I:C ratio is correct? Have you thought about ways to keep from spiking that high during a meal (aside from carb/portion…"

"What you could do is based off the ezbg take what you normally would only cut it in half and see if that helps or prevents putting you as low as it usually would."

Animas Ping - IOB and corrections

I am sharing what I have 'figured out' so far with this pump. If you know how to make it work better (more reliable), I am absolutely interested in hearing what you do with this pump to get it more reliable...(As many here, I came from the Deltec Cozmo pump.. This spoils me as that pump just worked.... quite well if you ask me!)In case it matters, I use Novolog. For the most part, I see the insulin effective for about 4 hours after bolusing.Here's a possible scenario that helps to explain what…See More
