RE: [IP] Re: changing morning bolus



Do you add anything to your oatmeal like cream or artificial sweetener?  I
love oatmeal but have not yet figured out how to work it in.  I know that
the steel cut are more "whole" than the rolled - how do you fix the steel
cut?  Do the ground flax seeds help reduce the bump in bg from the oatmeal
or just make it crunchy?

If I don't eat anything, I will get the rise in my BG.  I try to eat
breakfast 
soon after getting up to head off the rising BG.  The sooner I get insulin 
 going, the sooner I can cut off the higher BG or avoid it altogether.
Whenever
 I try to eat a high protein breakfast I end up using more insulin than if I
ate
a massive bowl of carbs.  I usually stick with steel cut oatmeal, ground
flax 
seeds and fruit for breakfast.
