I can't find these in English so I suspect they need to be translated. Who knows what they stand for?

"Empfohlene Therapie: Insulin/KHE" then under the column early mornings/afternoons/evenings "1.o NOR/KHE, the "durchschn." which I think stands for "average value" and under this "4.5, 9, 10" repectively.

KHE = Kohlenhydrateinheit = carbohydrate unit // NOR = noradrenaline?
Explanation:
In this case, KHE should stand for the above, not for "koronare Herzerkrankung". Not sure about NOR - could that be "noradrenaline"?

leads me to believe that NOR might stand for \"NORmalinsulin\" (not sure if this is preferably translated as \"normal\" or \"standard insulin\").
