@jack16 I follow Dr Bernstein’s 30g a day and have been for about 2 years now.
It worked great for me for a long time (A1c of 4.7) but I’ve noticed many changes in the past few months.
I’ve done basal testings. My BG seems to be fairly stable during the day. I tested at 2am as well (though not 3am) and it is stable then too. When I test in the morning (fasting, anywhere from 6:30am to 10am) it’s always double digits numbers. I do take my nighttime injection fairly late (9-10pm) and my morning early (7am).
I also noticed that I’m more sensitive to food, any food, now with Tresiba. I have to bolus more than I used to. Tried changing insulin and everything. I also use R to cover high protein meals as per Bernstein’s advice. I have his book and watch his teleseminars, I just wonder if maybe the fact that I’ve had type 1 for so long, plus the fact that I’m female have me in a unique situation? I don’t know. I feel like I do everything right (I even tried eating much less than 30g before with no difference). I exercise in the evenings as well. Just feel like I’ve hit a wall as far as my management goes.
