Changes have made the difference

We have recently started a new regimen (testing, testing, testing!) and we’ve found some success in our new regimen. We are now doing an extended bolus over 1 hour. We do 0 up front and 100% of the meal bolus over the hour. We feed Liam at the 30 minute mark. This alone was still causing spikes so we started also adding a Temp basal at the same time we started the extended bolus. The temp bolus is 50% more basal insulin for 1 hour.

Here are the results for the past 12 and 24 hours. This has been our trend now for 3 days so we don’t think this one 24 hour period is a fluke. We’ll continue testing and tweaking as always, of course, but this short lived bliss really gives me satisfaction.

Really nice results, how many carbs are usually in a meal, and is there any difference in how he responds to different sized meals?

Usually 20 to 40 per meal. There is some variance but not a lot… With the tutors of foods he eats. He got up to 230 today with popcorn. Highest in four days.

I was so happy to read this post, @ClaudnDaye. Great work!
