    Hi fellow porcine users.
    I am finding that I am spiking higher than I want to after meals. - up to 12.

    I am waiting prior to eating and cannot prebolus any earlier or I go hypo before the food kicks in.
    I wondered how you dealt with this and I am doing weight watchers- so I thought I migh increase my bolus to counter act the spike and go back to having a mid morning and mid afternoon snack to counter balance this as I need to eat more fuit and veg anyway.

    do you have similar difficulties and how do you over come it.
    I cant go low carb - I need toast and a sandwich in my life. This would be just too much for me to stick to log term and I just wouldn't do it- it would make the diabetes hateful and right now I like my life.
    was on fiasp but gained too much weight - great hbaic so am trying to balance both- good aic and good weight.
    any advise welcome

    edited addition. I should say that I do still have fiasp pen so too high a spike I can bring down quickly. They have agreed it can remain n my prescription
