From Toronto, Ontario, Canada:

I am sixteen, have had diabetes for approximately two and a half years, and I went on a pump about three weeks ago. About how long does it take to work out basal rates and bolus rates for people?


In my experience, it takes about a month to get a good handle on what the basal rates and boluses need to be.
