Sorry for the delay and even more sorry for my response on extended boluses.
I am not an expert in using the extended, dual wave, square wave, or combination boluses. I have tried them but have never got great results. It's very hard for me to match the protiens and fatty foods to get good coverage. I even after using a Continuous sensor it was close to impossible for me.
For example ADA recoments 50% upfront bolus and 50% extended over 8 hours for Pizza. That doesn't work for me. Not even close. So what I tend to do is use an increased temp rate instead for a few hours with those kind of meals.
However if I did take the time to look at my results after eating and doing those extended or combination boluses I am sure I would be in the ballpark. Problem is that I don't eat those foods on a regular basis (like 3 nights a week) to really lock down some good ways to make changes.
Any info you find that makes it easy to adjust for these rates let me know. It's all about trial and error of course... it just take some time.
