Thanks Jackie, that is really useful and explains why I still need to take
several units of insulin even when the meal is v. low CHO.  I can see how
bolusing for all this would be so much easier with a pump.  It seems to
suggest that unless a meal is pure CHO (bowl of plain pasta anyone?) you
need to account for later bg spikes as the protein and fat metabolise.  I
wish my dietician had explained this to me before as it would have saved a
lot of frustration and confusion!  Does diabetes affect IQ in any way?
Because that is what the professionals seem to believe!!
