Diabetic Dosage: an insulin calculator provides suggestions for fast-acting insulin dosage and might not work for everyone.

It uses the correction number recommended by your physician, your current blood glucose level, and the amount of carbohydrate units you are anticipating to consume in order to assist you in calculating your fast-acting insulin dosage.



Formula used: (BG-100)/CN+CU; Blood Glucose minus 
100 divided by Correction Number plus Carbohydrate Units

It includes a mmol/L conversion option for those who do not measure blood glucose in mg/dL.



Carbohydrate units are to be calculated based on your doctor’s recommended grams of carbohydrates for each unit of fast-acting insulin. For example, some people use 15 grams of carbs per unit while others may use 10 grams, 20 grams, or even 25 grams. Talk to your doctor to learn what your carb unit represents.



Dosage units are determined by the type of insulin delivery device you are using to administer insulin. Half units refer to insulin delivery devices that use half units (ex: 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, etc). Whole units refer to insulin delivery devices that use whole units only (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc.).

    Bought this app thinking I'd be able to put a target number, then the amount of carbs, my correction, and then it would tell me how many units. It does nothing. Wish I could get my money back. Trust me when I say this app is useless
