Just curious! What are your guy's insulin to carb ratios ? When I was first diagnosed I was 1:8. As I got farther in a worked my way down to a 1:25 almost to where I hardly use a lot of insulin anymore! The only down side is having to fill my omnipod with 80u no matter what, sometimes I don't even use half of it!

mine is approximately 1:7, but, I just posted a new discussion about that asking if people find that it is different at different times of the day. I seem to be 1:6 at breakfast, 1:7 at lunch and 1:8 at dinner. Still trying to fine tune this machine. :-) I don't think it is carry over because it is over 4 hours between injections.

I have a 1:6 ratio from my doctor; programmed my Omnipod to that number. However, my numbers are all over the map, as I'm recuperating from knee replacement surgery a couple of months ago.

Mine was 1:15 when I was diagnosed at 17. But now at 24 I'm at 1:8. But when you combine my diabetes with my anxiety/panic disorder it's makes my blood sugars very hard to control. But I'm definitely working on it.

Mine is 1:30 or 1:40 depending on time of the month:-) i waste more than half of a vial of insulin per month
