[IP] Fatty foods

The Effect of Fat on Blood Glucose
Although fat does not contain carbohydrate, it may very well affect your 
blood glucose level. You may find that 2 hours after a meal containing a lot 
of fried food, cheese or a large portion of fatty meat, your blood glucose is 
normal, but 4-6 hours later it's high. That is because the fat slowed down 
the absorption of the carbohydrates in that meal. 

As you become aware of how meals with certain foods containing fat affect 
your blood glucose, you can adjust your insulin accordingly. When you eat 
certain high-fat foods like pizza or french fries, you may find that using 
the variable bolus feature on your pump allows you to better match the 
insulin delivery to the blood glucose rise from the meal.
