So I’ve been trying to figure out the dosages for a couple things I miss - oatmeal, sweet potatoes, etc. I already discovered I have to dose at a 1:20 ratio for my daily apple and nut butter (same for my occasional sweet treats), which isn’t quite a double bolus, but it’s close (normal ratio is 1:35).
This morning I tried it with oatmeal, and while I went a little higher than I wanted (144), I think I will end up needing about a 1:10 ratio instead of my 1:25 breakfast ratio to eat it with a normal rise - so a little more than double.
My question, though, is - is it unwise to “double bolus” often (once every day, at least, for my apple)? When I think about it in terms of double bolusing, I start wondering if that’s just too high a TDD, and maybe it should be reserved for special occasions or once a week treats. But then I think of it in terms of just figuring out what works to eat the foods you love and, as long as they’re mostly healthy choices, it shouldn’t matter how much insulin it takes; as long as your numbers are good, it’s just another trick to deal with this disease. Thoughts?
