For a long time I’ve used an I:C factor of 1:10. Ltely however I’ve noticed that it should rather be 1:9 in the morning, 1:8 after 8 PM, and 1:10 otherwise.
This seems strange to me, since most people who post here report more carbs per unit in the evening. For example, 1:5 morning, 1:8 noon, 1:15 evening. Yet it seems to be different for me.
What’s also a bit odd is that my I:C values seem to be a bit high for a honeymoon. (Higher as in “amount of insulin needed for the carbs”, so 1:2 is higher than 1:5 for example.) And yet, I am using 11 units of Tresiba currently, and one unit of Humalog drops my BG by about 50-60 mg/dL, so this does not seem like insulin resistance to me.
Is it possible that some people are more “carb sensitive” than others? If so, how does this work in other people? Are their digestive systems using carbs less efficiently than mine? That is, are they extracting less glucose from the carbs? I suppose the body cannot use up the carbs 100%, and there are some leftover carbs that end up in the toilet, right?
