So, I just got a Tandem T Slim Pump hooked up today to help being T1. Everybody says one of the cool things about it is that you can do extended bolusing. However, through searching the forum and provided info I cannot find out how I should properly be doing an extended bolus! Could somebody explain this to me? I am sure there must be some helpful equation to figure it out that I don't know about.
I am currently on a low-carb, high protein diet. I get all my carbs from veggies or fruits and typically eat around 15g with each meal. Protein might be as high as 20-30g per meal of most often lean meats. I know that an extended bolus can help with a diet like this but I am not sure what percentages or what duration to use. Plus I have heard the amount of fat in the meal can be a big factor...? I know I will have to play around with it a bit to really get it right but does anybody have any starting advice to test with?
