  • Diabetics: How to Calculate High Blood Glucose Correction Using the Rule of 1800

    Dear all,Here in The Netherlands we use the rule of 100, which happens to be equivalent to your rule of 1800. We work with mmol/l, you use mg/dL I guess. As your value is 18 times higher it should be the same.For those people, like me, who don't want to calculate Accu-Chek invented the Aviva Expert that calculates how much units to inject. You measure the blood sugar and the carbohydrates, this device show the amount of insulin to inject. It also gives a bolus advice if you don't want to measure. It remembers the time and amount of injected insulin in case you measure in between.In my case it is a very handy device as my ratio differs by the time of the day. In the afternoon I use less insulin and this machine can handle that too.
