Did you test when you got up, if you did what was that reading?  I dont eat
mushrooms so it is one food Ive never looked up, from my carb counter book
that I have handy they are a free food so the only carbs in your meal was
the bread, I would say you over bolussed  for the fat content?!

> Got back to the flat at 13:30 and my sugars were 3.2

with 3.2 sometimes just a juice or a couple of  barley sugars bring mine up
enough (now I am pumping) and I dont have to eat, unless or when I feel like
it, the bolus is still given but a slightly less amount is given if they had
been low..

and had a snack then

This would be why they crept up, annoying but at least it is the reason for
the high readings! the only time high bolus amounts havent brought my levels
down was when I had trouble with a site..
