Allen, I was highest after lunch with syringes too - that is too weird! I am lowest after breakfast because I eat very little carb at breakfast - one of those high fiber english muffins with real butter and some bacon or eggs. Cereals kill me, so do pancakes and fruit and stuff like that. I get tired of the comments about my big plate of bacon in the doctor's lounge on work days :) I am 5 feet 6 and 123 lbs and bacon is one of my few indulgences that is entirely sugar free! So I enjoy alot of it! All the nondiabetics are overweight and eating the pastry tray!
Audrey, if you're in a rush in the morning, try one of those frozen Jimmy Dean 3 cheese omelets - only 270 calories and not bad for a quick breakfast. I sprinkle some Mrs. Dash herbs or Mccormick spice mixes on it for a little flavor. The Thomas' english muffins with 8 grams of fiber usually put me around 150 2 hours after the meal.

flywilley - that's my plan, i'm not sure i can wait till i get home to open it!! i'm gonna be so curious! ;0)
Comment by Allen on January 28, 2010 at 12:32pm
I also agree with Audrey. Cereal seems to have different rules than other carbs. Almost any carb is easier to control.

I am always high after breakfast in the high 200's to 300's-grain cereals shoot me really high-any ideas on what to eat to change that-now I'm eating toast. I eat dinner really early and try not to eat at night.
Comment by FlyWilley on January 28, 2010 at 11:59am
Allen, I think it's common to be high in the evenings because that's when we take in the most carbs rather we want to or Just starving by dinner I think.
Comment by FlyWilley on January 28, 2010 at 11:57am
Michelle I think that's when I need an increase. But I'm also going to ask about adjusting my I:C for dinner too. Maybe that will help. I am glad you've had no 300s that makes a world of difference in how you feel.
Myriah, when you get it Monday, get it out an play with it. Make time to go through the DVD with your pump and practice the menus. That helped me a great deal.

Oddly my high time is in the evenings as well. When I used insulin by syringe my high time was always after lunch.
Comment by Michele on January 28, 2010 at 11:22am
Funny, FlyWilley, my really high time is after dinner too!!!! That's the time I am still working on by myself. Ranging from 160 - 230 2-3 hours after dinner. Haven't seen a 300 since December - yay! My highest basal rate is from 5 pm to midnight. Good luck, Myriah! It is so worth the work. I feel soooo much better than I did when my sugars were swinging wildly. Keep us posted :)

it's all working out so fast! insurance paperwork went thru yesterday....PINK PING arrives on monday....tuesday i have a dr's appt, CDE, and pump girl will be there,'s kind of overwhelming! but at least it's all working out for the better! and i don't have to look at my PINK PING in a box for days! lol....whew what a whirlwind!
it's crazy to think i will be hooked up in a few days! i didn't think it was gonna happen!
Comment by FlyWilley on January 28, 2010 at 9:32am
Very good Michelle. I can't wait till I get all adjusted. I'm so high after dinner around 9-10pm 250-300. And I started dropping at work around 4-5pm 60-80. The rest seems to be in place. But hey for 3 weeks into it I think over all control is alot better, no 300+s.
Myriah welcome to the Pink Ping bandwagon :~D. Do u have to go through the training?
