Dragonflye wrote:I dont correct after 30mins, I started doing the 2hour after eating and when high I would correct, 1hour 30mions after the correction my levels are usually acceptable and remain at that level for quite some period of time until recently when they are dropping but they can drop anywhere between 1hour after food to 6 hours after food (before my next meal) - unfortuantely I cant tell when they are going to drop or whats causing it, which is why Im so frustrated at the moment.
Regarding bolusing 15mins before eating that is almost impossible unless I want my meal cold as I never know carbs until its all cooked and I can weight it all and then othertimes I may not feel as hungry as I was previously by the time food is in front of me
