RE: [IP] Glucose Tabs

Lisa D.

I multiply the amount of carb by 4  (5 carbs x 4 = 20 points).  I think I
read this in "Stop the Rollercoaster" This might depend on a formula based
on weight and insulin dose.  I am sure others will give you more details
that I might be missing.

I have noticed that a lot of you know exactly how much 1 or 2 Dex Tabs
bring your blood sugar up.  How do you figure this?  Do you base it on
the results you get within 1, 2 or 3 hours after eating them?  Spencer
started school yesterday and already his readings are everywhere.  Its
very frustrating.  I thought I had this pretty well understood, but I
obviously don't. :-(

Thanks for your help,
