    Hello Kat100. Are you diabetic? Your meals seem to be mostly carb! I'm not being critical: we're all different in how much carb we can take.

    Cornflakes (no sugar) bran flakes and strawberries etc will raise my sugars 8-10 so I inject a similar number of units. Cheerios will plus 20 or more my bg. Very high sugars!

    I have the problem with any cereal really, I partially cover when I'm working to intentionally sit higher and fully bolus at weekends...It's the easiest thing in a rush at breakfast and I like cereal :/
