Assuming carbs count is accurate. How long after taking humalog should my blood glucose be in target range?

the duration of the insulin would dictate that, so whenever it runs out, which is between 3 and 5 hours.....

its not an exact science of course as you need to consider dose timing as well as we don't always match up the insulin action to the food digestion perfectly....
