Normo-Glyco-Bot

Note: The Normo-Glyco-Bot is designed to help adjust insulin for patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus who take both long- and short-acting insulin. This is also called a 'Basal-Bolus' Plan. For Part One, it changes Basal (Long Acting) Insulin on the basis of morning/fasting blood sugars. For Part Two, it makes a mealtime correction sliding scale for Bolus (Short Acting) Insulin on the basis of your Insulin Sensitivity Factor calculated from the total dose of Basal (Long Acting) Insulin. An even better way to adjust insulin is to use Carb Counting [link memo="*more information*" url="http://www.diabetes.org/food-and-fitness/food/what-can-i-eat/understanding-carbohydrates/carbohydrate-counting.html"], but this is better than nothing. Suggestion: Save and/or print out the result and use Normo-Glyco-Bot to adjust insulin once per week.

PART TWO: ADJUSTING YOUR OWN INSULIN - BOLUS/SHORT-ACTING CORRECTION SLIDING SCALE (Aspart Insulin)

This Sliding Scale uses your Insulin Sensitivity Factor (ISF): [calc value="score0=((1700)/((Variable_1)*(Variable_2)));score0>0?'':''"][calc value="score1=score0.toFixed(2)" memo="ISF"]
The ISF means that one unit of insulin would be expected to lower the blood sugar by [calc value="score2=score0.toFixed(2)" memo="xxx"] mg/dL.
