Adjusting I:C ratios - "acceptable" bump after eating

Started this discussion. Last reply by Brian (bsc) Oct 11, 2011. 22 Replies

For those of you who (either on pump or MDI) self-adjust your I:C ratios, what do you consider an "acceptable" increase in BG 1-2 hours after eating, if the carb count is right ? 30 mg/dl, 50-60 ?…Continue

HPNpilot replied to walkingonthemoon's discussion 'Amylin Analog'
"No, unfortunately. Symlin, like insulin, is a large protein molecule that would be broken down by the acid and digestive enzymes in your stomach and intestines. That's why there is no oral insulin as yet."

Hi! I used to live in Purchase when I was attending SUNY Purchase. I started my band out there, but now we are separated geographically as I am living in Chicago. But I love Westchester and flew out of HPN quite frequently to come home. I wondered if that had something to do with your username!

Our Annual Campaign is coming!

Would you consider helping by writing a short comment/testimonial about your
experiences at TuD? The main message for the campaign this year is that no
one with diabetes should ever feel alone. Messages from our community give
people a real-life, personal sense of how valuable TuDiabetes is to each of
us, how it's changed our lives, etc.

If you can, please include a photo of you doing something diabetic (if that
makes sense LOL). Please post to this group
(http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/why-i-participate-in-this-community), or message to me from my page.

Thanks my friends!
