I’ve been struggling to get my post meal BG down to my bench mark. I’ve been bolusing extra like crazy as my BG rises and still can’t get it down to my benchmark.
I set my benchmark at 100mg but it only comes down a little to 144mg and stays
there and I find myself in the next few hours bolusing 1 unit , another 1 unit , another 1 unit until it comes down! Its about an extra 3-6 units post every meal I need to bolus- thats a lot of insulin!
So the curve looks like this, starts at 81mg, peaks to 180-200mg and then comes down to 144mg and stays there (but i want it to land around 100mg) and sometimes it trends up again. Is it my bolus that is too weak or my basal not enough. I think it’s my bolus but I’m not sure anymore since these additional bolus injections seem to be ineffective. I know sensitivity weakens as BG is higher.
Yes it was a carb based meal but had protein and vegetables as well.
