"The more you weigh and the more insulin you take, the less every unit will lower your blood sugars." Pg 128

Sensitivity to Insulin based on Daily Insulin Useage - How much 1 unit lowers Blood Sugar

To determine your sensitivity factor:

Figure your average total daily insulin

Divide it into both 1,500 and 1,800.

**The result is an approximate range of how much one unit of insulin will lower your blood sugar.**

Example: 1500 / 28 = 54

1800 / 28 = 64

This means that every unit of insulin should lower BS approximately 54 – 64. (To simplify round off to 60.)

**Is this "formula" the same for all types of insulin?**Whether you take only rapid? Whether you take in longer acting? Whether you use a 70/30 Mix? Is ONE Unit of INSULIN Equal? *regardless of which type of insulin?
