    Hi - this happens to me infrequently, about 3 times a year, but I thought it worth sharing to see if this happens to anyone else. Was 4.2 before supper last night so I delayed bolus (I like to be above 5 before blousing). Had 45g carbs and measured bloods 30 mins after eating and still just 5.2 so I waited. I Did nothing for another hour as something inside me told me not to bolus. Sure enough, my BSs stayed below 6.5 for the rest of the evening. I find it strange a) why after supper last night my BSs didn't rise with food and b) somehow my instinct told me not to give insulin. Very strange - hate to think of the hypo had I have bolused as normal. It's probably just me that's strange!!!

    I agree, you ignore those "gut feelings" at your peril.
    I've had numerous occasions when logic told me one thing, my gut another, & I've learned the hard way to respect the latter!
