When I started eating them, my bg was 109
(my endo doesn't want me below 100 until she says I can--might
be a couple more months before she'll allow it again. She knows I
work alone at night in deserted commercial buildings doing
physical labor, and she doesn't want me passing out due to my
I bolused 3.8 units (based on ~15 gm/unit calculated about 12 oz
of mashed taters @ ~16 carbs/100 gm serving size, totalling ~57-
60 gm carbs)
At the 2 hour mark, I was at 112
(unheard of before changing my carb ratio to 15 gm/unit down from
20-25 gm/unit--I'm still in the honeymoon and things are changing
every couple months)
At the 5 hour mark (no additional food) I tested at 173.
My high bg ratio is currently 80 gm/dl per unit, so I bolused 1 unit.
2.5 hrs after that, I was at 123.
Using the unused insulin rule, I decided to bolus .3 units.
Then it was bedtime.
By morning, it was 114.
