So in other words, just keep correcting and ignore the food? As most of my meals are below 10g anyway. I didn't know what to do for my dinner (pre 9.3) so didn't do anything and 2hrs after was 11.9. Just tested now, 5hrs later and it's down to 7.5 but I'm not sure why. This has been a pattern of sorts the last few days actually, high BGs when I wasn't expecting them but also lower BGs when I wasn't expecting them too, most confusing.
I usually just keep the insulin at room temperature but have just been away for the weekend and kept it in the Frio all weekend and so far haven't taken it out.
I feel I am still guessing as far as ratios are concerned, with the help of 'Think like a Pancreas' I based it on body weight but don't eat enough carbs (usually) to have worked it out properly yet. I am definitely under dosing when I am away from home as I'm never sure when or if my pancreas is going to join in and that last hypo was horrible scary
As an example of how bonkers my BGs have been over the weekend we were staying in a pub and I liked the meal I had Friday night so much I had it again on Saturday but BGs were quite different
Couldn't resist the dauphinnoise potatoes as they are particularly good there so decided to have some and bolus.
Friday before meal 7.8 bolused 10 units 2hrs after 11.1 bedtime 10.3 so corrected with another 6 units and woke next am to 10.8 so corrected with 6 units. So not bad but obviously under bolused.
Saturday night same meal, before 5.9 upped bolus to 12 this time but 12.8 2hrs after. Bedtime 18.2
so corrected 12 units.
Thinking back I was in quite a lot of pain saturday night after trundling along a bumpy tow path so maybe that was the difference. Also I never know when the meter is being accurate so have to test 2 or 3 times sometimes to see. Told me I was 16.8 the other night, tested again and 12.8, don't know how I'm supposed to get it right when the meter is so inaccurate. When I complained to the DSN about it she said well but you knew it wasn't right so that was ok but that was before I was bolusing. Think I might tell her this is unacceptable next time I see her.
Up till now I've preferred to eat VLC and it seemed to work well without any insulin but it seems that's not the case any more so I will try the 2 units and see what happens. I am reluctant to do this as I'm still putting on weight but can't stand these high BGs.
