I'm wondering how long a dose of Symlin can be considered effective. I take 60 units of Symlin before a meal and take insulin (cut to 50% of the "normal" dose) after the meal. This system works well.
Occasionally, especially during the holidays, I find myself in situations where I eat food, although not a full meal, closer together than the five to seven hours apart I normally keep my meals. My question is how long after a mealtime dose of Symlin should I cut the corresponding insulin dose? Dose its efficacy scale such that one hour after a meal insulin should be cut by X% and two hours after a meal it should by cut by Y% instead?
