If you have a smart phone there's an app called "My Fitness Pal" the lets you scan food bar codes and it enters the nutrition info so you can track your carb intake correctly. Also, one unit of insulin may be needed for 20 mg of carb or more if you jeep dropping. Maybe even more.

If you're dropping that low so often talk to your doctor or endo about adjusting your insulin doses. Also ask your doctor to set you up with a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE).

Talk to your****re: carb ratios in pump & see if you can ID a pattern. Low @ same time day, after exercise etc. then work with them to adjust carb. / blouse wizard ratio in pump.
