I’m hoping I can get some suggestions around how people successfully dose for a high carb/high fat meal.
I rarely eat pasta (just isn’t my thing and I never really want it often) so I’ve never managed to get a good grasp on how to successfully dose for it. I either hang low for the first two hours and then spike like crazy or I need all my insulin up front and if I don’t I go pretty high by hour 2.
Tonight my boyfriend is making spaghetti carbonara which I’ve literally never had in my life so I have no idea what to expect for it.
I’m assuming I want to do a dual bolus with my pump, but was also hoping others could share their experience about when they notice the spikes from meals like this (obviously I know my bodies different and could need something else completely) but any tips to avoid that spike into the high 2s low 3s would be great!
