Re: [IP] HbA1c and humalog



Hi Sammi
I agree totally.  I mentioned the lows  and the fact that Braden still had a
lot of high nos. also to his present endo.  He just acted like that was the
norm and the average overall is all that had been researched.  He said he
didn't know the affects of the high nos. on the body when the a1c came out
normal. (I assume the same affect as if your a1c was high...)

One thing I'm really confused about is Braden' bgl after he eats.  For
instance, today he had a quick breakfast, (a poptart), had a shot of humalog
as he ate, and after 2 hrs. he was at 300, at 3 hrs. he's 100.  Does this
mean he doesn't peak until after 2 hrs. or what?  If I had just checked at 3
hrs., I would have assumed he had in range nos the whole time.  I assumed he
could eat a poptart on humalog and would be ok.  Any ideas?  I'm sorry this
is not a pump question but you guys are so helpful i thought you would
know..
Thanks
Beth
