A premeal blood glucose level determines whether additional insulin should be added to the premeal bolus to cover premeal blood glucose excursions using a sensitivity factor (SF).
Premeal BG measurement was performed before each insulin injection 30 minutes before the meals and the insulin dose was determined according to the BG levels: 100-200 mg/dL, same as the previous dose; >200 mg/dL, 110% of the previous dose; <100 mg/dL, 90% of the previous dose (2).
