Re: [IP] Bg rise in a.m....



Joseph:
Thanks for asking this.  I have been wondering the same thing.  If I were
eating what you ate for breakfast I would have to bolus about 7.5 or 8. 
Just counting Carbs aren't always enough.  Like the person who mentioned a
.. "chocolate donut was 7 plus 2 for later",  I have had to learn how each
food reacts in me.  Maybe your carb ration isn't right?  How do you bolus
for the sugar on the bagel?  I don't know what the scientific answer is,
but someone one this list, like Michael, Barb, Bob or Sam, etc...will teach
us.

Here's a question...
I wake up with a bg around 70 to 120.  I faithfully eat my Lender's
cinnamon swirl bagel 38 carbs and drink a cup of milk =3D 12 carbs.  I
bolus my 5 units (1:10 carb ratio).  Before lunch check I am usually 250
or higher?!?!?!?  If I'm too low waking up I am rebounding, I know, BUT
even if I am normal I go way too high!!!  What could it be?!?  Do I need
a different carb. ratio for breakfast?  I DO have Pumping Insulin and
plan on reading it SOON!!  Any ideas for me now though?!?  -Tonya D.
P.S. Can dawn phenom. happen around 11:00?!?  That's when I get up!  :-)
