BasaJ-bolus coverage combines the available insulin preparations (Table 1) into programs that take into account the unique dietary, exercise and other habits of your patient to mimic as closely as possible physiological insulin delivery—i.e., provide insulin in approximately the correct amount when needed, and not provide it when unnecessary—in order to attain near-normal daytime and nighttime glycemia. By necessity, multiple shots and frequent self-blood-glucose monitoring (SBGM) are required.
