I have no idea how many carbs this was. A thick pizza and 2 beers (I was telling the guy making it to keep piling stuff on, like they do in Chicago).
But I wouldn’t have any clue how to do this with a calculator or formula on a pump. Absolutely no idea what I would put in for this.
This was just a pump with NovoLog, no IM or IV or anything fancy. Just aggressive insulin, overdosing for what I was about to eat, and then waiting for the drop later and hitting it with dessert.
The only trick is, you have to stay awake for a few hours so you can get your dessert when the rest of the insulin hits. You take more than what you need for dinner, and just be patient for dessert, which covers the rest of the slower insulin a bit later.
Whenever I go out for pizza, and people say, “What should we get?”, I quickly say, “I don’t know what you are getting, but I am getting this…”
There is no “we” in pizza, just an “i”.
