Well, if my sugar is too low, I take about a 30 carb drink of juice and expect to see my sugars start to go up after 30 minutes. After 2 hours the sugar will have made it's run. I would expect 30 carbs to bring me up 10 mmol or 220 mg from where I started.

I think we are all finding the diabetes is not a "one size fits all" disease. We each react differently and have to adjust individually.

Crashnot is correct, everyone reacts differently.
Your doctor should be able to help you with this, it can be confusing at times !

Everyone has a different sensitivity to both sugar and insulin. My doctor ran me through figuring out my insulin to carb ratio, but I noticed it was also in the pump's instruction manual. Look in your manual's index for "carb ratio" I think it is, and it will go through the math with you. My ratio, for instance is 1 unit insulin for 15 grams carb/sugar, so we say 1/15. And I know that I need one unit of insulin to lower my sugar 5 points (using the Canadian scale, in the state it would be 110 points, not sure what scale you're on for measuring blood glucose. Here our test strips show the same numbers as the A1C tests do in the states, but you have to multiply that number by 22 to get the reading in the states. Very confusing!)
