What is an insulin correction factor (ICF)?  

An ICF is how many points your blood sugar will drop with 1 unit of insulin. The ICF corrects a high or low pre-meal blood sugar level. This dose will either be added or subtracted to the dose given before the meal. To learn how to use an ICF with this worksheet:

How to use a correction factor to reach your target blood sugar

  1. Subtract your target blood sugar from your current blood sugar.
  2. Divide this by your correction factor.

Current Blood Sugar – Target Blood Sugar = Correction Insulin Dose       
Correction Factor                                                

Example: Your before meal blood sugar is 200. You blood sugar target is 120. Your correction factor is 40.

200 – 120 = 80 ÷ by 40 = 2 units of insulin to take to correct your high blood sugar. You should add this insulin dose to your insulin – to - carb ratio dose.
