My birthday was Friday and we are having a family get-together this coming weekend to celebrate a few of our May birthdays.
My favorite kind of birthday cake, that I had every year before being dxd at age 13, is chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. I ate it the first year being diabetic (on injections) and my bg went on a horrible rollercoaster. I've tried Splenda cake the past few birthdays but it's just not the same.
This year I've decided to go back to the regular, sugar-ful choc on choc cake. We will be eating it mid-afternoon as I thought that would be the best (not putting myself potentially going to bed with high bg). I remember my blood sugar just staying up high for several hours after eating the cake.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to deal with a high-sugar desset such as this? I was thinking about possibly bolusing for the cake with a 1:20 rather than my normal 1:15 and then running a several-hour-long 200% temp basal afterwards...
Let me know if I'm on track or if you have something that works for you...
