Mines 7 if it's a light meal, 8 if I think it's a higher carb neal

Cool, but like some meals I have 30 carbs in and some I have as much as 120 in.....

Mine is 7 and then I'm on a carb count. For every 12 grams of carbs I add 1 unit of insulin. I have an app to help me count it's called CarbsControl

Mine is 4-6 depends on how carby the meal is most of the time I'm making it up! Xx

I guess roughly 4-6 depending on the meal as I know I won't go too low. Better to air on side of caution and do a unit or so less than u think 😃
