My basals are .5 from 8:30 at night until noon, and then drop to .4 for 3
.3 for two hours, .4 for 4.5 hours. I did nearly a twenty four hour fast
about two weeks
ago to verify that because everyone kept telling me they were wrong!!!
>From midnight to noon, if anything, I have a slight dropping effect -
maybe 130 at midnight and 85 at noon, depending on if I walked to the
farther bus stop or not ;) If not, it's usually more around 100.
When my blood sugars are "good," one unit of humalog can drop me over 150
pts... so yes, 1/3 unit could easily cover 48 pts for me. As for 18 g of
in cheese?????? Not quite... don't have a label in front of me, but I think
is more like 6 g / 1 oz, which if 60% converts to carbs (ala. Natalie Sera)
then that'd be about 4 g, which for me is about .25 of a unit == your 1/3
So it did what everyone else expected ;)
But see, when I was "taught" carb counting, I was basically taught to ignore
protein... sigh, be patient with me, I am still learning!
And ruth... you might not want to give geneva cheese anymore when she is
So what DO we eat if we don't want to see a blood sugar change ?

OK Susan, so what do you think your BG would have done if you had nothing
to eat? I suspect maybe your basals are not perfect for the morning.
Anyway, just a guess. You mihgt have needed 1/3 U to cover the protein in
the cheese. How much would 1/3 u lower your BG? Probably not 48, so I
still suspect your basals are showing. YMMV doesn't mean there is not
logical reason---there is a reason---it just means that everyone may have a
different reason :-)
<<<<<So this morning I ate cheese - just cheese for breakfast - just to do a
little test. (And no, it was not satisfying and now I AM hungry and am
going to go get something more to eat!)
Anyways, 1 oz. of cheddar raised me 48 pts! As for carb content of low fat
versus full fat cheeses - almost every label I've ever seen says "1g." - of
course that could mean 0.9 or 1.4, etc. but I doubt the variation "counts"
all that much.
