The ratio is different for everyone and can be different for the same person at different times of the day. I suggest that you contact your doctor or diabetes educator, they can properly adjust your insulin or your ratios to get your numbers where you want them to be. I can tell you from my experience with my daughter who is 8 1/2; she has 8 different carb ratios depending on the time of day and if she has physical education that day. Yes this does make life interesting. I must always know what the school schedule is or she can get very low or way too high. On the average 1 carb usually raises the blood sugar 3-5 mg/dml. but as I said this before this is different for everyone.
