Improved Therapy Settings
Today many patients use bolus guides to determine correction and meal bolus doses with predefined correction factor and insulin-to-carbohydrate ratio. These factors are often determined using the so-called 100 (1800 for mg/dl) or 500 rules. However, research indicates that these generic rules of thumb often produces poor settings for the individual patient. Instead, Diact Pro determines these factors from the data and provides specific recommendations for these factors for each different meal type (breakfast, lunch and dinner).
Another important setting to consider is the insulin action duration, which is used to determine the amount of insulin-on-board. A too short or too long insulin action duration setting may have severe implications for the possibility to attain a sound glucose control, with e.g. unanticipated hypoglycaemia.hypoglycemia. Diact Pro makes individualized estimates of this important factor, which may allow for a better matching between expected IOB and true outcome.
