Change how insulin is calculated for a meal bolus.

Having the "reverse-correction" cut-off being preset at 70mg/dl is way too low for a lot of people. While in theory it seems to not be a problem, it has created a big problem among users of the t:slim Insulin Delivery System. It does not make sense to have this as a set cut off and not the user-defined target BG number when determining if the bolus needs to be reduced based on blood sugar, as bolusing should bring you to your pre-meal range, and for many, 70 is too low, especially children or those who have hypoglycemia unawareness. Please change the calculations to lower the bolus based off of the user-defined target BG, not the set 70mg/dl.

      It only makes sense to have this as a user defined setting...like most other pumps do.

      While touted for having a user-centric design, this is easily one of the most frustrating aspects of trying to live with a t:slim pump

      t:slim user, pumper for >12 years. Proper consideration of all forms of IOB and BG thresholds is crucial to avoiding hypoglycemia!
