Do you feel like bolusing for carbohydrates alone is not enough? That most of the time when you bolus for carbohydrates alone you are chasing high blood sugars 2-8 hours after eating your meal? I created this group to discuss how to perfect extending our bolus to compensate for the portion of protein and fats that will eventually be converted to glucose.
"The premise behind TAG is that a portion of the protein and fat content of the meal will also contribute to carb loading above and beyond the actual carbs in the meal. Whereas 100% of the carbs are accounted for when calculating the bolus, only a percentage of the protein and fats are expected to be eventually converted to glucose. The carb bolus is delivered immediately and the protein and fat bolus is delivered using the square wave/ extended bolus." -Ricardo
ALL FOODS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL! So why bolus as if they were?
Jump in a discussion or create a discussion of your own! Ask a lot of questions, together we can find the next best thing to a cure for Diabetes.... perfecting TAG (extended bolus)! :)
