I’m on humalog and humulin n. I’ve found that when I eat a large amount of pasta, pizza or chinese takeaways (I eat lots of carbs as I train anywhere up to 25-30 hours per week and need it for recovery etc), my blood sugars will be fine 1-2 hours after but can then skyrocket 3-5 hours down the track. If I inject myself with more humalog pre that particular meal to try to account for it, i’ll just go low.
Is it just an impossibility to create an insulin which will act fast but still have enough cover so that your blood sugar won’t spike as the large amount of low gi carbs are absorbed?
Or am I thinking completely the wrong way? I used to be able to eat these sorts of meals quite easily and keep steady levels whilst on actrapid and monotard.
