At least once a week - Tuesdays - I have to work late, and I eat dinner at work.  I have discovered that when I eat at home, a 1:10 insulin:carb ratio works.  But when I eat at work, I need at least 1:8.  This is so even though I always eat a lot less when I am eating at work.  It makes zero sense to me.  Do others experience this, and does anyone know why this happens?

Definitely stress! When I used to go into an office, my bg would literally rise as I drove into work. Now that I am a freelance writer and mom to 3 kiddos, I rarely have this issue. YES, stress can absolutely, without a doubt make your bg RISE.
