I'm probably the only one on this list that doesn't use a square wave
or double-bolus for pizza. I do, however, bolus more than what I
would "calculate" needing from pizza. My recommendation, however, is
to experiment. Coming from Chicago, you know there's a big difference
in what people call "pizza". For instance, the results you get from
eating Dominos will be entirely different than stuffed
Just be aware of the timing of BG rise. For instance, if you eat
pizza or chinese at 7:00pm, and then test BG at bedtime, consider the
possbilities. If BG is high, then go ahead and bolus to correct it.
If BG is low, is it due to miscalculating your 7:00pm dose or is it
due to delayed absorbtion of your dinner? Only experience (and a few
nighttime BG checks) will tell.
