I tried to solve for the following equation at lunch yesterday:
Pre-lunch BG of 168mg/dL
+ Sandwich consisting of two large slices of bread, estimated at 20 grams of carbs each for a total of 40 carbs
+ 4 units of insulin for the carbs using a 1:10 ration
+ 1 unit of insulin for correction of the 168 (using a 1 unit for a 50 point drop in BG ratio)
+ 0 minutes of exercise that day to account for
+ no sickness/added stress to account for
+ no current insulin on board
Huh? Over 300mg/dL two hours post-prandial? Didn’t I calculate for this? Did they accidentally use sugar cookies instead of bread on this sandwich? Was the turkey laced with caramel that I didn’t taste? Does my carb ratio change on Wednesdays to 1:5 and nobody told me? WTF?
