I've been very pleased with this approach. Though I'm doing anywhere from 75-125 carbs a day, i definitely see a drastic difference in my sugar swings when I'm being really good and following the carb limitations to a T.
BUT, I also am noticing that in the last week after starting this method, my tolerance for carbs has gone down. What I used to be able to eat and control [by taking insulin] seems to be MORE out of control. Even this morning with 2 eggs with cheese, a peice of wheat toast (12g) and a half cup of whole yogurt(6g), my sugar hit 180 before coming back down, and that was only because I got ticked and bolused some more. I've been noticing this for about 3 days. A glass of 2% milk which hardly effected me at all before, will now shoot me up to 150 or even higher.
Has anyone else experienced this? Why isn't my bolus ratio working as it did before I started this diet when I could count on maybe a 140-160 high on a bad day, but often saw 130 or less? Any theories, experiences? Should I just count on needing to up my boluses if I eat carbs?
