Re: [IP] Re: HIGHS longggg after Pizza

   Melissa had a "personal pan pizza" at Pizza Hut yesterday for lunch.
Bolused 6 units & completely forgot that in the past she'd also done a 50%
increase temporary basal for about 4 hours. So sure enough a few hours later
she was 400!!! (first time in months &  months).....Bolused A LOT & was still
in the high 300s hours later (and yes, she even changed her set)....FINALLY
came down to about 150 by midnight & awoke at 140.....Pizza seems to be the #1
most difficult food to "cover" because of the "unknowns" in how it's prepared
& also in how the body metabolizes its different components.....
