I've noticed a trend that my 1 hour post-meal spike is much higher after breakfast than my other meals. I know the dawn phenomenon is a reality for many of us, but the last two mornings I even went up on my insulin to carb ratio just for breakfast.
To give some context, I ate the same thing this morning and yesterday morning. 2 hard boiled eggs and 1 cup of Barbara's multigrain shredded cereal with skim milk. I waited 15 minutes after my injection (Humalog) before eating and both times I was starting with a good blood sugar (e.g. 92 today). 1 hour later, I was 200+ both yesterday and today. I know that is the spike and that it will come down some in this next hour, but I don't want spikes in my life esp now that I'm pregnant.
I wonder how something that, while it has carbs, is really low in sugar can have such a high spike. Should I just give up on carbs at breakfast? I'm wondering if the HCG hormones are making me that much more carb sensitive in the AM.
Do others experience this? What has worked for you?
