[IP] Re: carb counting-pasta
Pasta is about the easiest
and most consistent carbo I have found, too. Like you, one cup is always 30g for
me. Of course, whatever sauce can have a surprising amount of CHO, but I have to
calculate that, too.
Now, if we are talking
Italian, let's talk pizza. I don't even bother with this anymore and the pump. I
either take too much Humalog, too little, too soon, or too late. I can't figure
on an extended bolus (known by many as the "pizza bolus," I hear) that
will work. I know I would have to fine-tune by trial and error, but I just don't
want to bother anymore with the rollercoaster. I can avoid pizza, or limit
myself to one piece.
I have read the carbo
counting books on pizza, and they always seem to underestimate. It's just too
complicated. I found it much easier with injections of regular insulin, with a
different carbo ratio and the longer-acting rate, so maybe I should go back to
that while staying on the pump to cover the basal rate. Does anyone make these
"special" exceptions for things like pizza?
