Re: [IP] Fruit with breakfast



Fruit, no matter when I eat it causes my blood sugar to go up then "drop
like a hot potato". I usually try to eat an apple with a piece of toast in
the morning - saying 10 grams of carbohydrates for the bread and 20 grams
(depending on the size of apple) for the apple bolusing 3 units (1:15). I do
not do a correction bolus if I am in the 180-200 range 2 hours later because
I will go down to "closer to normal" by lunch time. What a trip! I do need
to get a glycemic index book - I heard the Glycemic index concept is a good
concept for trying to figure out high sugar foods like fruit. Take care
