Re: [IP] chinese restaurant rice...how much bolus?
Hi Ruth and Geneva -
I just got back from Japn, where I learned that
WE (in the USA) and Chinese eat the long-grain. Yes, there is a difference
before I went to Japan, Ididn't even eat
rice. Bolus the same as you do for normal carbos - at east that works for
Me. On the exchnge system ( which I do when ever I dont know the carb
value) 1/3 cup for rice. If i want more, I just bolus for that amount -
for instance, I bolus 1.7 per carbo exchange. One carbo exchang efor me is
15 g. For that I do 1.7 - if I'm having more than that, just bolus 1.7
times number of exchanges. Whatever works - for me, I'm on the same basal
rate day and night - 24 hours a day on .4/hour. Not everybody is that
rate, and you have to adjust. Good Luck!
