How I control having a curry

Published by Gary61 in the blog Gary61's blog. Views: 814

Hi everyone, today I thought I would show you how I control my blood sugars when having a curry. I know that probably
the vast majority of Type 1 diabetics would never dream of eating something like this so I thought I'd show that it is possible
to do so especially using my new pump, My favourite curry is a chicken Balti so that's what I ate here together with half a
portion of mushroom rice and a plain naan bread. It was absolutely delicious.
The main problem I find with meals of such a high GI content is trying tomaintain control over many hours. I do this by
pumping an initially large dose of insulin and then pumping small amounts depending on if y sugars start rising. having a cgm
makes life so much easier doing this. I hope my picture illustrates how I do this.
And just for you sceptics out there, I am actually a very well controlled
Type 1 diabetic
