"You can also fudge a bit which makes life somewhat easier. I used to never pre-bolus b/c I wasnt sure how many carbs I would end up eating, but after a while I realized I can just take most of a bolus (or bolus+correction) in advance and then top…"

"For a blood sugar of 150, 30 minutes wait time would likely be fine, but for 200 or more, you would likely need more time before eating or you would just shoot up higher and that would be the reason that it takes hours to come back down. John Walsh…"

"If i am 150 i would give 1 unit etra and for sure within 90 minutes ill be at 100. I cant give my meal bolus and correction at the same time without eating in the next 30 minutes cause for shur ill be low by that time."

"I agree with both Gerri and SuFu. Carb and Correction Factors are not linear. Not on my watch at any rate. SuFu has a great point. If you are starting from a high BG, then bolus 30 or even 60 minutes before eating. If your BG is over 150, you…"

SuFu, Ph.D. replied to gtourret's discussion 'Correcting high Bg Without eating'
"Gerri is exactly right (as usual). If I can add one thing to the discussion. One of the key things I do to have the correct timing with a large correction+meal bolus is double the amount of your normal wait time between bolus and eating. For example…"

Gerri replied to gtourret's discussion 'Correcting high Bg Without eating'
"Insulin resistance/increased carb sensitivity in the morning is typical. It's part of the dawn phenomenon. Most people have smaller ratios for breakfast. Larger insulin doses absorb more slowly & less predictably than smaller doses. This…"

Correcting high Bg Without eating

Hi everyone. Just wondering if this ever happenes to you. If my bg is over before i eat and i take the bolus for the meal and the correction at the same time i usally reach my target around the 3.5 hours mark. But if i test my Bg lets say 3 hours post meal and correct it without eating i might reach my target in 90 min or 2 hours depends. Why is this so and is this normal. Another question is why do i need so much insulin at breakfest 1:8 Carbs but my isf is at 54mg/l (3 mmol). Is this…See More

Welcome home...Salut! (Je suis originaire de Rimouski!)
Take a peek at some the groups when you get a chance. Just go to the top of your page, and click on "Groups". Once in, you can either peruse the wide array of available groups....or simply type a specific interest in the space provided. Take a look at the Canada Embassy page as well, by going to the headings in the aqua coloured box in the upper left hand of the home page. Click on "DHF Grassroots". Once you're in scroll down, click on "Canada embassy", and voilà! The house in the photo is where Dr. Frederick Banting lived and had his medical practice in London, Ontario, Canada...before going to the University of Toronto to work on diabetes research, and ultimately the discovery of Insulin.
