Do you ever go low right in the middle of eating?
This morning I woke up at 4.1 (74) and bolused 2.2 units (to cover 20g of breakfast) and then ate breakfast right away. About 25 minutes after waking up, and halfway through breakfast (I guess I'm a slow eater), I started feeling low and tested at 2.2 (40).
I never know whether I should treat this or not. I did swim last night so reduced my usual breakfast ratio (from 1:7 to 1:9) and had my overnight basal rate reduced to -10% for eight hours (which was still running).
In this case I did eat some Skittles since my mouth/tongue was starting to go numb which always freaks me out and makes eating a bit unpleasant. I always get annoyed when this happens because it's not like the insulin has had time to kick in much after only 20-30 minutes. Often I pre-bolus by that amount of time and my blood sugar hasn't even budged when I start eating.
Just wondered if this happens to other people, as this definitely not the first time it's happened to me, and I find it pretty annoying!
