I know that traditionally the Combo, Extended, whatever you want to call it, Bolus is suggested for use with high-fat, slow-digesting meals. Up until recently, that was the only time I was using it.
In my effort to get my A1C down to "normal", I've hit a plateau in my ability to minimize post-meal peaks, so I thought I'd try using it for other foods, too. Now I'm pretty much Combo Bolusing for every meal I eat, and alot of times I have no peak whatsoever after eating (if I'm setting all of the options correctly, that is). Maybe this is the key to getting my A1C to a 6 or below?
Does anyone else use this option for every meal? How does it work for you, and what are your parameters? (Duration, ratios, etc.) I find that the 80/20 split over 2 hours works for most meals that are low-fat. When it's higher in fat, I do the same ratio, but extend it for 4 hours.
