This is a question I've been wondering about for some time now. One example is that when I eat my breakfast concoction of oatmeal, ground wheat, bran, and flaxseed, I notice that my usual one unit to every ten carb ratio does not keep after meal spikes under 200.

What I've discovered, through experimenting, is that I need one unit of insulin for every five carbs.

Is this something that others may have discovered too???

Thanks for your answers.

You may need a different ratio for some meals. It is not that unusual. If you have better coverage at breakfast with a different ratio. Just find out what you need and go with that. Good testing results Paul!
