RE: [IP] Re:testing multiple times (and testing after meals)



It depends on the type of Insulin.
Humalog (LisPro) is peaking after 1 - 1 1/2 hours, so
I check after 2 hours to be less than 140 (starting at 100).
For Regular check latter 3 - 4 hours after the bolus
to get the same effect.
1 hour after bolusing is to check for lows with Humalog.

I test 1 hour after eating to make sure that I'm not
low. If I had a low fat meal and I'm running around
and I'm at 100 an hour later, I know I'm going to go
low if I don't eat a little something. They do say not
to treat a (reasonable) high 2 hrs later, though
