I'd either use the BW to calculate but not to execute (do a manual bolus)... Or just do the carbs/units math manually... The issue I had with the BW was that the carbs weren't showing up in NS... And that 'retroactive carbs' also did not make it into the loop's COB.
Flip side of that is I'm a recently diagnosed 1.5, and thus what works for me very-well-may-not work for anyone else because of the fact that I still have some biological function left (just not enough to live without shots or a pump, even with meds)...
So while I have hopefully useful in contributions toward x12 pump ops & tech stuff, my experience actually using OpenAPS is probably (hey, I don't know - I just hit the 1yr anniversary of my diagnosis) pretty different from folks who have had diabetes ever since they were a kid & have no natural function left.
