Jag1 replied to pancreaswanted's discussion 'better control, but is this ok to do?'
"Yes, of course, you're right. It's 1 unit per 2kg, not 2 units per kg. (The numbers I gave for OP were correct, however - she would be 66 lbs). That's why I always like to refer back to my books. I've only been without them for a…"

Zoe replied to pancreaswanted's discussion 'better control, but is this ok to do?'
"Ok, my math can't be this bad: If someone weighed only 30 kg and the "prescribed daily dose" were 2 units per kg, wouldn't their TDD be 60 units, not 15??"
yesterday
Jag1 replied to pancreaswanted's discussion 'better control, but is this ok to do?'
"Her setup was that she takes only basal, so only 15 units per day and no bolus insulin. Thus she is taking a TDD of 15. There is certainly a range and no one should expect an average to hit their numbers spot-on, but I'm certain the 2 units per…"

Zoe replied to pancreaswanted's discussion 'better control, but is this ok to do?'
"I was commenting on 15 units as a basal dose, Jag. My experience is that insulin dosage has to do more with, as you say, endogenous insulin production as well as insulin sensitivity."

Jag1 replied to pancreaswanted's discussion 'better control, but is this ok to do?'
"I don't have my reference books (I lent them to a friend who's son was just diagnosed with T1), but I'm pretty sure the average T1 TDD insulin requirement is about 2 units per kg body weight. So 15 units TDD would be the expected…"

"I'm a later in life T1/LADA. Dx'd at 60. Control for me came with education, lots of testing and willingness to micromanage my basal/bolus regime. Using Insulin and Think Like A Pancreas were my two reference manuals. Now that I'm…"

Thanks for the note about the write a novel in 30 days contest. I might even get enough courage to try out a writers workshop. I see they have a group that meets fairly close to me and since we are all Hoosiers, surely we wont fight to much? Well we might fight a lot. After all we are Hoosiers. LOL

Hello you, yes I'm on my way over with the Kerrygold, although Dairygold is far nicer, and it has to be the one wraped in the foil type wraper. Hope you are keeping well, I'm trying to step up the ex a wee bit.
