At diagnostic kick-off, the general formula used to calculate one’s total daily dose is weight(kg) x 0,55 and to adapt the dose according to your insulinic sensitivity. Nowadays I nearly abide by this (65kg, +/- 38 U), but at diagnosis and following years I consistently used 52 U, while weight increased from under 60kg to early 70s. Maybe your specialists hail from a planet where gravity isn’t as attractive as here on earth?
