[IP] High High High BG

I figure the total bolus needed to cover the pasta.
Wait until right before I start eating it, then bolus
half of the total amount. 45 minutes after I finish
eating, I bolus the other half. This has worked great
for me irregardless of the amount or type of pasta.
Just don't forget to do the second half :] Of course
I've never done that... 

The pump is much better than taking two shots for one
meal or crashing before the pasta even starts to
increase blood sugar levels! Doesn't pasta seems to
taste better with the pump than MDI?

Sounds like pasta to me.  Pasta is a killer for me,
especially hours 
later.  Did you do a temp increase or dual wave?


ps.  And yes, I agree it sucks. :-)
