My kids start school tomorrow, and I told @Eric I’d be back in a couple of days once things got settled. I made it a whopping 4 hours before needing some insight.
You guys talk all day about protein and bolusing. I even read the egg thread. I guess I’m stubborn and just can’t believe I could’ve missed this all along. Tonight, however, I ate some chips at 9:30 pm, did a bolus + extended bolus (against better judgment, but so far so good), and got everyone to sleep. I had paperwork to do, and my BG was about a 145 or so. I decided I didn’t want to mess up my numbers with more carbs, so I decided on two pieces of cheese and like 6 slices of turkey pepperoni. That was at 11:15. Finally ready for bed, I test and find I’m at a 200. Chips 2 1/2 hours ago… cheese and turkey pepperoni 45 minutes ago. I’m going to survive, but I would just like to know… Could that really just be the cheese and pepperoni? Or could that be a really late rise from the chips even though I had dropped 50 pts an hour and a half after eating them?
Now I’ve got a bunch of insulin on board… just in time to sleep through all of my alarms.
