How to set up and how to use the mySugr Bolus Calculator

How do I set up the mySugr Bolus Calculator?

How do I use the mySugr Bolus Calculator?

Please find information about this topic in the section 'How to use the new mySugr Bolus Calculator' in our blogpost.

Why does the mySugr Bolus Calculator use active insulin instead of using insulin on board (IOB)?

The mySugr Bolus Calculator calculates the amount of remaining insulin that can still lower your glucose levels. This is what we call Active Insulin. Active Insulin is subtracted from calculated boluses to prevent insulin stacking and avoid hypoglycemia, so you stay safe and in control. Please find out more information about the difference between Active Insulin & Insulin on Board in our blogpost.

Troubleshooting

The new mySugr Bolus Calculator does not work on my smartphone, what could be the problem?
