[IPk] Re: testing basals, Rapids and high bg



Don't forget the Chinese-Restaurant-effect.  If you eat enough to feel 
stuffed, rather than just pleasantly full, it'll trigger stretch receptors 
that trigger release of glycogen.  This will make your BGs soar beyond what 
the counted/estimated carbohydrate would suggest.

Do a google on chinese restaurant effect - or search the archives, for a 
fuller description.
