I have been doing such a good job over the last 2 months with low-carb, I virtually have eliminated starches (bread, rice & pasta). I haven’t ever been a big sweet eater so my numbers have been basically below 150 at 1-hour and 2-hour after meals. Well, we went out to dinner last night for celebrations and I had to have some Singapore noodles, a Thai dish from our favorite restaurant. Well, as you could guess, I was over 300 at 1-hour and 278 @ 2-hour. That was after a 30 min walk between the 2 tests. It was then 10:30 pm so I jumped on the treadmill for 30 min but only got it down to 215 before I went to bed. I know that if I had bolus I could have had it down in relatively no time - I am on Metformin only.
I was wondering what others do aside from running marathons at midnight to bring BG down when it is inconvenient . Should I bring this up with my medical team so that I can have some insulin handy for the odd occasions like this?
