"Try putting in your meal bolus after testing your blood sugar and then wait 15 minutes before eating.Of course you can't use this method if your bs is low."

"Back years ago when I ate oatmeal, I would make a big batch of steel cut (irish) it on weekends. I would cook it with heavy cream and although it took 45 minutes, I could take a scoop out in the morning during the week and reheat it in the microwave."

"That's why you increase by a very small amount, then test after and don't go to sleep within a few hours after your meal! Small changes and then staying with them for awhile is the way to tweak things safely."
