I treat rebounds, under-estimations of insulin needed, weird highs and
so on all exactly the same : 1 unit insulin to drop 3 m/mol.  The only
high I treat differently are post-drinking highs which I treat more
cautiously (1 unit to drop 4.5 m/mol).

On the low-carb meal that gave you the low: I find that I do need extra
insulin for fat/protein above the ordinary, but that this has to be as a
square bolus, not all at once.

Best wishes to all,

Pat
