Easiest way to solve the problem is to give up pizza :-). Lot's of us have.
If you have any at home lemonade or other fizzy drink will help with nausea. Not eating pizza is the best bet, though.
Are you sure your gallbladder is okay?
Please have your gallbladder checked out. This sounds all too familiar to me.
I agree with Jan. And it's supposedly more common for T1s. With gallbladder issues, meals high in fat can make the pain and nausea worse. When my gallbladder surgery got postponed for a month, the doctor told me to eat really really low-fat during that time to avoid flare-ups, and it did help quite a bit. Ate a lot of poached eggs..... As you're logging what makes you feel sick, keep an eye on the fat content.
Feel better soon!
Pizza is a baddie for most of us, and the high bg could make you nauseous.
I guess the best option is not eating it at all, but you could always try eating a smaller amount (which, of course, is probably harder to do than giving it up entirely).
Kelsey, pizza is a problem because the carbs in the crust are hard to determine (and usually a lot of carbs) and the cheese and toppings can be greasy, which keeps the bg high for hours afterward. I rarely have it, never more than 2 slices, and I usally am sorry I did afterward. take a look at some of the discussions on how to bolus for pizza
a lot of people have success with a combo bolus
hope you're feeling better today!
Pizza is an "evil" food for me. It makes me spike something crazy and with those high BGs come nausea, headaches, etc. You know the drill.
Best way to prevent the problem is just avoid pizza. I have found that I can have a slice (and I mean a single slice) of THIN CRUST pizza. It has 22g of carbs and as long as I don't do more than one slice and use an extended bolus, I am ok. But if I go over that, I'm in for a roller coaster evening. Just not worth it.
