Insulin Calculator: Manage Your Dosage With Precision

Use this insulin calculator to quickly determine your insulin dose based on your current blood sugar levels and carbohydrate intake.

How the Insulin Calculator Works

This calculator is designed to help those managing their insulin levels compute how much insulin they should take based on their blood glucose level and carbohydrate intake. It takes into account your blood glucose level, carbohydrates you plan to eat, your insulin sensitivity factor, and your carb-to-insulin ratio.

How to Use the Calculator

To use this insulin dose calculator, enter your current blood glucose level in mg/dL, the amount of carbohydrates in grams that you plan to consume, your insulin sensitivity factor, and your carb-to-insulin ratio. Click on the “Calculate” button to see your suggested insulin dose in units.

How it Calculates the Results

The formula used to calculate your insulin dose is as follows:

Insulin dose = ((Blood glucose - 100) / Insulin sensitivity) + (Carbohydrates / Carb-to-insulin ratio)

The result is then rounded to the nearest tenth of a unit to ensure an easily measurable amount.

Limitations of the Calculator

This calculator should only be used as a guideline and must not replace medical advice. Factors such as stress, illness, or changes in routine can affect your blood glucose levels and insulin needs. Always consult with a healthcare provider before making any changes to your insulin regimen.
