Could Ryan be rebounding? You've ruled out a bad site and insulin.
Noah is getting a lot more exercise (due to summer and no school),
and had an occasion where he was on rebound highs for a while and
bolusing to correct didn't work.
Is it white bread you're making? Noah bg's shoot up and stay there
for hours when he eats a lot of white bread unless it has a
substantial amount of fiber in it. My husband and kids don't like
the whole grain and whole wheat so I shopped around until I found an
almost white bread with added fiber. We noticed a big improvement
using this bread over the standard white.
Just some thoughts. Hope you get it figured out soon.
