AHA! Now I know why Eric went sky-high after 16 oz of full-fat milk + 1/2 an English muffin with butter. His daycare provider and I were mystified. Usually he only has 4 oz milk, and usually it's low fat, so we've never seen this before. We double checked the carb counts and looked for bubbles and found nothing, and we were going to change his site but an hour after she told me about the high (380!!) he was back down to within range, and given that the correction had worked we knew the site was OK. I've been wracking my brains to figure out what it was and had decided it had to be a bubble that we just didn't see, but now it makes more sense.
Agree - carbs plus fat - late spikes. I had trouble eating it when on MDI, but now pumping, I have finally figured out how to bolus for it (over 2 hours). On MDI - I used to take 2-3 shots over a few hours to ry to get the same results.
hahaha you could do like Danny said his mom used to do... and pack a stationary bike in the trunk of your car, so you can exercise right there in the parking lot of the place, and see if it helps. lol I've had this image in my mind for a while, of me trying to bike away just about any naughty thing! hehe
So...I've tried this. i mean, not from the back of my car or anything, but if I work out immediately after eating, my friendly overactive liver just seems to spike my sugars higher if I'm already on the up...not so for you danny? Sweet shirt ;)
My liver does all kinds of weird things. I have found that the starches that that my ancestors ate during famine are just deadly to me (I'm just too good at using them -- I don't know anyone who can eat corn.) I've found that rice doesn't digest very well for me and thus has a lower impact. Weird, huh? By the way for comparison -- I'm Irish, English, Welch, Scotch and a whole lot of Jew. You should see what I can do with oats, barley and potatos, they actually ferment in my gut an destroy my sugar control.
