well, getting 250's is not a good thing, in fact, it's pretty bad..
one alternative, if you really don't know how many Tot Carbs your going to be eating
1-Give yourself a Meal plan of total carbs to stick to and take a Bolus for that 10-15min ahead of time
2-Compromise? take 1/2 ahead of time and the other 1/2 or moreis needed perthe Tot. Carbs After eating.
and you have to try as best you can to avoid going above 150 at 1 hr and get into the 120 range at 2 hrs and 90's at hr #3..
another problem we have to do? We can't just take a Snack and then Bolus for it.. we have to try to always take a bolus-10-15 min ahead of time and then snack afterwards..
I know it's a real PIA and I'm just as guilty not doing it all the time too.
It's just another PIA things to put on the list ..
Another PIA? Behing High B4 wanting to eat.. So I start testing 1 hour ahead of time..to see how things are doing.. 1/2 the time I'm too high and take a CB and it helps down the road to get things under better control 1-2 hrs after eating..
hope that helps
