Re: [IPp] Highs after eating



...one more thought on the the highs...Emily also has trouble with post meal
highs of 300-400, especially after breakfast.  It has helped to do about 85
% of her bolus about 20 minutes before eating.  You have to be very careful,
though, especially if the bg was below 100 to start.  If we are confident
that she will eat all of her cereal, that is what we do.  It has lowered her
post meal high to about 200, which is better than before.  The other thing
we did was to raise her basal rate a couple hours prior to breakfast and
that also helped. YMMV. Emily also uses Novolog.Good Luck!
