This is sort of a question for all T1’s, but pumpers in particular: I’ve had great success by “pre-bolusing” for my meals (bolusing 20 - 30 minutes prior to eating), but as my control is getting tighter with my averages approaching and dropping below 100, I’m fearful of dropping low quickly after the bolus and then compulsively over eating to compensate for the pre-meal hypo, resulting in post-meal highs (it happened last night).
I hope that this description isn’t too convoluted…
So the question is this: If you “pre-bolus”, do you take into account a borderline low pre-meal BG? If so, how do you manage it? What success have you had in not over eating with pre-meal hypos?
Sorry for the convoluted question, I hope what I’m asking makes sense. I’ve found that issue is very confusing to non-diabetics
