1) 154POUND=70
70*0.6=42 U a day pt will use 21u novolog(divide per 3 times daily 10 min before food) and 21u levemir (at bedtime).

2)human to apidra rate is 1:1 units =11 un before dinner (before 10 min )

3) 70/30 means 70% aspart protamin and 30% aspart
42/2=21 u
aspart protamin=75*21/100=15.75=16u

hope I did right ,please feedback
