I decided to give a super bolus a try this morning. BTW my son is 10, on a MM722 and has been pumping for 6 years.
10:30 am he was 142 and I did the three hour superbolus, taking the basal to 0 for 3 hours. I bolused him for 58 grams (2 van’s waffles and 1/4 cup aunt jemima butter lite syrup)+ the 3 hours of basal (I used the prime for the 3 hours of basal so it wouldn’t show up in IOB) He ate around 10:45 am.
11:30 am he was 156
12:30 pm he was 195
1:30 pm he was 240
2:30 pm he was 215
I have his DIA set at 3 hours but it was apparent later that this large bolus was still working at the 4 hour mark.
Anyone out there good at figuring super boluses? I am thinking about going to 4 hours tomorrow and seeing what that changes. Depending on his starting blood sugar I might hold off and not prebolus as I worry about him dropping too much before the food kicks in. Any suggestions?
