So pizza night was interesting… My day started pretty badly as I was trying to get my CGMS up and running, wasted two sensors in the process but eventually I got it. But it only started reading AFTER my pizza… anyway this is how I did it:
Got to the restaurant and started off on a 6mmol/114mg reading. I bolused for 6 slices, at 18g carb per slice (108g carb) 60/40 over 4 hours. Being ALL YOU CAN EAT PIZZA night though, was going to be tough, as the waiters strolled past the tables with huge plates of pizza, and where there were empty plates on the table they’d fill up. It was crazy, but luckily most of the slices were pretty thin based, even though the slice size varied quite considerably. This obviously meant my original slice size calculation would be abit wonky, but anyway.
In the end it worked out pretty well, it great, but ok. At the end of the 3 hours I was at 11mmol/209mg even though my CGMS was telling me I was at 16mmol/304mg! It slowly came down during the night, and in the morning I woke with a 9mmol/171mg reading, which I wasn;t too bummed about.
Damn the pizzas were good and the lengthy high was definitely worth it. It won;t happen again soon, I think the last time I ate pizza was about 3 months ago, so it was a real treat. Thanks to all for advice and sharing your pizza experiences!
