Re: [IP] what's your favorite cereal?



This could be a timing problem.  Cereal (especially the unsweetened kind) is
digested very very very fast.  You may need to up your insulin ration a bit, but
you definately will need to take your bolus long enough before the cereal so it is
peaking when you eat.
