RE: [IP] CGMS and reasonable post prandials

I am beyond frustrated, I am finding anything over 30g, no matter how
much fat or protein I eat with it, drives me to 400. It's almost
easier when my gastroparesis is flaring. Cereal is already death for
me, so I do tend to eat slower carbs. Lots of whole grains, no cereal
The years of these swings has driven me to hate eating. I don't even
enjoy food any more. (Well, the gastro did that more than the
swings). When my gastro is flaring all I can digest is simple sugars
and the peaks make it worse, downward spiral. I can't digest protein
like beef any more really, so going completely low-carb would be beyond
a challenge. ARgh.
I have an appt next week. I am just in shock at how high my 1 hr post
meal peaks are. It's a little bit of redemption: I am doing nothing
wrong, and I can't help but feel this is not my fault. My numbers are
'fine' at the 2.5 hr point.
What is really weird, is back when humalog came out, I was testing like
10X day or more. I found then that my number had a very slow trickle
for 0 - 1.5 hrs after humalog, and then from 1.5 -2 hrs the main action
of the drop, followed by a small amount of action from 2-2.5 hrs.
Now what I am seeing is more like slow trickle from 0-2, big drop 2:30-3
hrs, trickle 3 -4 hrs.
Note to John & Bob: I didn't know there was a word for my proposed
method (SUPERBOLUS!) but that's what I'll be trying for sure. This
week I hope to keep a detailed log of every bolus, and food that crosses
my mouth for my next appt.
