"I find that during the holidays as I tried to stay somewhat low carb, that I ate a lot of holiday treats like mixed nuts. Mixed nuts in large quantities can definitely affect you 4-5 hours out. So can cheese and other high fat foods. Some of these…"

Sweaty and Shaky Vs. Tired and Thirsty

Hi All,I'm a little new here. I've been Type 1 for going on 12 years and I wear an Animas Ping.For about 2 weeks now my BGs have been creeping up between 1 and 6 am, and now in the last 5 or 6 days its spiking after 9 pm. I have been gradually increasing my basal rates and adjusting my carb ratio to accommodate. I don't think its food related since the spikes happen 4 or 5 hours after a meal. I try to eat healthy and limit carb intake to 30 G per meal, I'm usually in pretty good range 2-3 hours…See More
