I’m really confused. I follow a 1 unit to every 9 g carb count and that’s what’s entered in on my pump. Sometimes when I eat and I check myself an hour or two after I am perfectly normal, meaning I took the right amount of insulin for the carbs I ate. But other times, I go really low. I don’t understand how this happens because I am entering the exact amount of carbs the box says it has. The first thing I would think is that my carb ratio is wrong, but it works half the time. For instance, tonight I ate yakisoba noodles. It said there was 35 carbs per serving (which the whole thing was 2 servings). So I took the right amount of insulin for 2 servings because I know I would eat the whole thing. An hour later I am 70 and it says I still have 4.50 IOB! What the heck!
How does this happen? Any suggestions on what to change or what I am doing wrong? Thanks!!!
