So for the last couple months, I’ve been playing with the following strategy: I take a slightly higher basal dose than I need so that my fasting BG hovers around 85. I walk everywhere and stay active. I find that these 2 things give me the wiggle room to not bolus for about half my meals (ones that contain under 8g carb or so). I typically go anywhere between 100 and 130 after a meal w/no bolus and don’t think this is a problem. If the meal has significant amounts of carbs in it, or if I’m already towards the top of my range, I’ll take a bolus as appropriate. Is this crazy or do others do something similar to this?
Obviously the risk is hypos…I generally just treat them as I find them and always have an unbolused bedtime snack with fat, carbs, and protein.
