The Superbolus

Updated: Mar 19

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.
