Re: [IP] Meals w/ significant protien cauz my Nbolus not to work. Any ideas?



I've been using the Minimed Dual Wave Bolus accordingly:

1/10 Carb ratio    Normal part of bolus
1/20 Protein ratio for 2:30 square wave part of the bolus

The only thing I don't like a about the dual wave is I can't snack.  Fran,
the assistant at the place I work, has the best cookies....  but then again,
I'm a diabetic, right??  <smirk>

I'm still experimenting with the ratios.  I weigh 180.

HTH
