I'm a recently diagnosed type 1 diabetic, and with university starting back up next week, I've began to think about what's best and quickest thing that I can have for my lunch whilst out and about on campus. There is a subway right outside which would be absolutely ideal. Therefore over the last couple of days I've tried a few different options at subway to see how I manage. Normally I have a turkey sandwich every single day for lunch anyways at 40g of carbs and 2 unitis of rapid insulin, therefore I knew I wouldn't react significantly to the bread, However I was quite shocked at how good my results were. I normally aim for around 45-50g of carbohydrates per meal (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and in 1 6inch ham and cheese wheat bread sub from subway there are 40g which for someone who aims for 45 seems perfect to grab and go. However after doing the math completely wrong, I order a footlong instead of a 6inch meaning I ate 80g of carbs instead of my usual 40g. However after testing every hour after eating the 12inch sub, my bloods basically didn't move and were 5.9 before, then 6.1, 6.0 and then 6.0 again before dinner. Now I understand that brown bread does have a lower GI and is slow releasing, hence why I didn't spike and instead kept a consistent reading. However I'm now confused since I thought I had worked out my carbs to insulin ration at 22g cabrs per unit of rapid insulin. But after eating almost double that and then going onto have arguably best readings in terms of not fluctuating to date, I'm unsure whether or not this means I can stick to footlongs at subway or whether its still best to stick to the 6inch at most. I know alot of people would cut out the bread entirely but after looking at my readings, unless there are any other reasons to cut back on bread as a diabetic, then there seems to be no reason as to why I cant have a subway for my lunch 2-3 times a week. One of the main reasons for making this post is that I see alot ( and I mean the majority) of people saying to basically avoid bread/brown bread completely, and to go for the salad options instead as even just one slice of bread sends their blood sugars sky high. Now I understand that we are all different and all react in different ways to different foods, but I just cant seem to find any else who also seemly eats sandwich as much as much as I do and for it not to affect their bloods badly at all. If my readings are good after having a subways whether it be a 6inch or the 12inch, then does that basically mean I can carry on the way I am. Or is there something that I'm missing, and instead should be keeping it as a one off/treat? Note: I would only ever order the 9-wheat bread and either ham/turkey, therefore the fat content is very minimal and the only carbs I consume come solely from the bread. Thanks!!
