Hi all, I've been diabetic 15 years and have been carb counting for most of that time. Recently I've started to become more strict as I'm trying to tighten my control, and I realised something quite strange. My ratio is 1u:8g of carbs throughout the day - however - when I have a high carb meal, I have to take less insulin or it will make me go majorly hypo. For example: 1 bread roll (35g of carbs) - I take 4u for this (or 4.5u depending on what my pre-meal BG is) 2 bread rolls (70g of carbs) - This would add up to 8.5u/9u of insulin, but I have NEVER taken that big a bolus for this or any other high carb meals before. Usually I will take 6, sometimes 7 tops, and that will keep me stable. Is this normal? Is there something about carb counting for high carb meals I never realised? I never really thought about it before, but now I'm trying to adhere more strictly to carb counting it's kind of throwing a spanner in the works.
