The presetting of the bolus calculator

For your personal therapy, your doctor or consulting team has determined two calculation parameters that enable you to calculate the IE dose. These are the CHO ratio and the correction factor. The therapeutic factors of the patient are preset on the disc for each time of day and secured against improper adjustment.

This presetting is quick and easy to do and can also be done during the training. These factors are visible in the round windows of the disc.

If your factors change, they must be readjusted. Patients who are experienced in self-help can - in close consultation with their doctor - also carry out this adjustment themselves.

The bolus calculator is available in two versions:
ICT-TRIO medium and ICT-TRIO forte.

Bolus calculator ICT-TRIO medium

The bolus calculator ICT-TRIO medium is suitable for patients with mild to moderate diabetes.

The gradation of factors and correction numbers in 20% steps allows a fine adjustment to the needs of the patient. Thus, the bolus calculators can also be used to determine the trend inputs for the CSII pump therapy.

The bolus calculator ICT-TRIO medium will be available in English within the next six months.

Bolus calculator ICT-TRIO forte

The bolus calculator ICT-TRIO forte is suitable for patients with moderate to severe diabetes.

The gradation of factors and correction numbers in 20% steps allows a fine adjustment to the needs of the patient. Thus, the bolus calculators can also be used to determine the trend inputs for the CSII pump therapy.

The bolus calculator ICT-TRIO forte will be available in English within the next six months.

Free menu choice made simple

On the back of the bolus calculator you will find the carbohydrate units (CHO) of a hundred of the most common food products. CHOs are indicated both for usual helpings and for one hundred grams.

The more fat contained in the consumed carbohydrates, the slower it will be converted into blood sugar. For this reason, the especially slow CHO are marked with a tortoise and the especially fast with a panther. This information also helps you to adjust the blood sugar to your body's respective needs.
