    Yes, the higher you are, the more insulin you need.

    When my BG is high, I find I become slightly insulin resistant so need additional insulin to bring my BG down to normal levels.
    For me, this is twice my usual correction dose. However, I monitor my BG very closely for the next couple of hours when I take this much correction in case of hypo.

    I find I need more insulin, for correction dose. Sometimes end up doing two correction doses. Then of course ,the roller coaster effective, can start. Ohhh the joys of T1.
