Insulin Pens

Normally, about half of the day's insulin is released as a relatively steady background or basal delivery. When carbs are eaten, a spike or bolus of insulin release occurs from the pancreas. In attempting to mimic the pancreas with a basal/bolus approach that better matches insulin to need, a convenient and precise way to deliver insulin can be very helpful.

The Super Bolus

Current basal-bolus thinking says that 50% of the total daily dose of insulin works best as basal, and that a change in basal insulin delivery should occur several hours before a rise or fall in the blood sugar is desired. These ideas need to be rethought as newer, intelligent pumps begin to appear.
