I was wondering what % other moms are using for their TAG formulas. If you don't mind sharing I think it could help us all!
I love TAG! I don't quite have it perfected yet, but my gosh it really puts some rhyme to the reason. I could not make sense of so many of our highs until I found TAG. I would increase my DD's basal rates since I knew my carb counts were good, and that just created a mess.
Here's my scoop:
Age: DD is almost 14, T1 for 3+ years
TAG Formula: All Carbs up front, Then 40% of protein and 20% of fat dosed in an extended bolus over 2 hours.
Challenges: This formula seems to work well for us on combo foods such as pizza and chinese food...Yes!!! Sometimes she will run a little low with this, so we watch carefully.
**Our formula doesn't work as well for us on foods that are only high in Fat OR Protein (but not both) such as nuts or plain grilled chicken. It is not enough insulin in these cases...not sure what I am missing.
I'd love to hear any advice or feedback. I'm trying to just use one universal TAG formula to keep things doable for my DD. I'm asking a lot of her already, LOL
This is how we do it... your child may need something completely different :)
