Hey Whitney,
Figure the carbs in one bisquit and then add that to number of bisquits you
eat- if you have the minimed 507c-508 then do a square wave after you have
counted your other carbs of course-Honestly it isn't that difficult. Go and
enjoy your bisquits and account for them accordingly. The day I got my pump
working my hubby took me and I ate pizza and a Blizzard LOL had such a taste
for that. I still do that once in awhile.
we cannot expect restaurants to understand diabetes and pumping- I'm still
learning myself:)
