Changing Your Bolus Wizard Settings

Did You Know: The Bolus Wizard is a feature that calculates an estimated bolus in order to cover any carbohydrates (carbs) you eat or drink or to correct a high blood glucose.

Important: Work with your healthcare team to establish your personal settings, which includes your carb ratio, insulin sensitivity, blood glucose (BG) target, and active insulin time.

Once these settings are entered, you only need your current BG and carb value (for a meal bolus) for the Bolus Wizard feature to calculate your bolus amount.

Note: If you do not enter all the required settings, the MISSING INFO screen appears, listing any missing information. You must program all settings before you can use the Bolus Wizard feature. After you enter all your settings, review them for accuracy.

Did You Know: Your insulin sensitivity is the amount that your blood glucose (BG) level is reduced by one unit of insulin. This value is used to calculate a suggested insulin dose to correct a high BG. Because this sensitivity may vary throughout the day, your insulin pump lets you set up to 8 sensitivity settings.
