Re: [IP] carb counting beans

<< with 1-1/2 c. chedddar cheese on top. 
 The carbs for this amount of kidneys are 60 Gm.  I bolused for half that
 amount and am hypo 1-1/2 hours later.  Any other experiences with beans? >>

It is more than likely the slow absorption of the fat in the cheddar cheese
that caused  the low BG. Try a square wave bolus over 3 to 4 hours next time
you have this meal. One ounce of cheese = 9 grams of fat.
