I stopped at a fast food drive-thru for dinner, Taco Casa. Took my BG to calibrate my sensor(119mg/dL), googled the carbs on their website, and took a bolus for the published 96g of carbohydrates, all at the ordering speaker.
Over 15 minutes later, 2 of the 4 cars between me and the window are still in line. I had to run over some 4 foot tall traffic cones to get out of the line, then drive a half mile to a gas station to buy some juice. By the time I get back to the restaurant my CGM alarm is going off, and I still had to wait 5 minutes in the lobby. 30 minutes total from when I ordered/bolused until I recieved my food.
Anybody else got a similar story? The other situation Ive always worried about was not being able to finish a meal I’ve already bolused for, yet magically we diabetics always eat exactly everything on our plate.
Bolusing 15 minutes before eating(on fast acting) is supposedly the “right thing to do”, but I cant help feeling it’s Russian Roulette in the long run.
