Ok, if it evens out by noon if you don't look then it has to be a mis
match of the R insulin blood level and the digestion rate of the CHO
-- namely the malt-o-meal. This stuff is highly refined and converts
to glucose pronto. There are two experiments you can try.
1) eat the same amount of carbo as the malt-o-meal but make pancakes
or biscuits instead with plenty of butter or fat in the mix. This
will slow the absorbtion down by a lot and your bg's should be more
stable over the period from breakfast to lunch. A cup of flour or
pancake mix is usually 88 grams of carbo.
2) Get some Humalog and substitute that for your morning bolus.
Inject the correct amount instead of the velosulin. It peaks in about
an hour and should kick in at the same time as the malto-o-meal
converts to glucose.
Take a look at the time difference between H and regular insulin
this link is on our website under Humalog on the links page
You might want to give an H/V mix some consideration.
Something like 5/1 or 4/1 would probably work good for you.
