when you notice a trend after eating certain foods, for example after eating an english muffin, and you see a rise in BG after 2 hours, do you try doing a dual bolus? and, while experimenting w/ this dual bolus (which you are making your best guess over after watching similar trends on your cgm), do you maintain your other carbs as a base rate? for example: whenever i eat and english muffin or any other bread carbs (rolls, etc) i spike after about 1 and a 1/2 hours to 2 hours. so today, i decided to experiment w/ a dual bolus rather than giving up eating my coveted english muffins. in order to see how this experiment worked, i decided to keep a “regular” food in the mix. i know that i need to cover 10 grams of carbs for eating one serving of tuna fish. not that i wanted to mix tuna w/ my muffin, but it seemed to make some sense to me. this way, i would know that i was not responding to the tuna, but any weird change in my BG (and potential spike) would have to be related to the muffin alone.
have you figured out a solution with blousing that works for you? how did you figure it out? and how did you get to that solution (obviously, by experimenting)? this is the very first time i am experimenting w/ the dual bolus w/ anything other than high fat foods. i am anxious about the results. how can i just take a deep breath and let the insulin do its thing?
all answers welcome.
