The food database is nice but after awhile your carb counting for dosage is second nature to you and the database is seldom used. As with all pumps, timing of bolus injections is critical to maximum benefit and having gained personal knowledge and experience as to how to determine ratios and setting up correct levels by several days of closely monitor blood sugars and insulin dosage.
