Re: [IP] Re: <IP> Lord what do I Do
Using my Navigator I've charted for various foods the rate at which they
increase my sugar from a baseline from 40-60. Beans are by far the slowest, so
much so that for any meal that includes beans I won't take my Symlin, and I also
use an extended bolus or else my Novolog acts too fast. Glucose tabs raise sugar
the fastest, but they are dry and vile and hard to get down. Juice works the
best for me.
I also would have trouble negotiating the can-opener with a sugar of 28.
