Apologies for the vague title, I’m really not sure how to describe my issue in a small description.
I’m curious how you guys plan your morning with insulin dosing so that you can have your breakfast and out the door by a certain time.
I’m finding it very difficult to control the time I leave for work. I’ve ascertained that I have FOTF in the morning so the first thing I do when my eyes are open is to bolus for that and wait in bed for about 10 mins. I get up then prebolus for breakfast with the intention of having it in 20-25mins time. If all goes well, my sugar starts dropping after 20 mins. I eat and that’s the end of it. I’m out the door.
But there have been many occasions where my FOTF just keeps rising (not always but many) and the 20-25 mins prebolus turn into 1 hour + before I see my sugar start to trend down. Now this is annoying because it means I can’t leave for work on time. I don’t have the option of not eating or eating at work because I’ve already bolused for breakfast.
Any tips on how to manage the timing better? I haven’t been able to establish a pattern with the FOTF rise, sometimes it’s just 18mg, sometimes it’s 36mg and sometimes it even goes beyond that.
