Here's my 24-hour line for Thursday March 12, 2015:
For dinner last night I ate 2 ounces of ham, 2 ounces of swiss cheese, and scrambled eggs (2) made with whole cream. That's 8 grams of carbs, 33 grams of protein and 62 grams of fat, including the butter in the fry pan.
I delivered a pump extended bolus of 3.2 grams over three hours. I used a pre-bolus time of 20 minutes. I inhaled 4 units of Afrezza at mealtime, 6:30 p.m.
I was curious how the 4 units of Afrezza would handle only 8 grams of carbs with a 1:7 insulin to carb ratio. I would have dosed 1.2 units of Apidra.
My CGM line did dip post meal into the upper 60s but did not go below my low threshold of 65. The lowest point was reached about 1:15 post-meal and then drifted up into a nice sub-100 steady line. My overnight line hovered in the low 80s.
So, Afrezza passed my first challenge to its imprecise dosing range instructions. There would have been a danger of going low in this situation if I went out for immediate post-meal exercise.
I'm encouraged by my first two meals and first day on Afrezza. Time will tell!
The green stripe on the above graphic ranges from 65-140 mg/dl.
I'll update after I eat my first meal on the late side today, around 1:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
Note: For those readers unfamiliar with my pre-Afrezza lines, this line today is not significantly different than what I am able to do with more complicated pump techniques. I don't want to mislead!
