Want to learn how to bring down BGs faster without risking hypoglycemia? The Superbolus is an AMAZING tool that can help do just that.
Superbolus formula (explained in video below):
Current basal rate X temp basal % = temporary basal rate
Ex. 1.00 u/hr X 0.60 = 0.60 u/hr
Temporary basal rate X temp basal hours = Superbolus
Ex. 0.60 u/hr X 3 hrs= 1.8U
Correction + Superbolus = new increased correction bolus
Ex. 4U + 1.8U =5.8U
Be sure to discuss this with your clinician before trying it out and for more advanced pump features check out the book, “Pumping Insulin” by John Walsh.
