Insulin for bacon and eggs

  • Does anyone give insulin for bacon and eggs and if so how much? I always considered these free because she doesn't eat a lot of it and they are so low in carbs but I am noticing her blood sugar is going up after eating them.

  • I don't. If we noticed a rise later, would probably correct at that point.

  • I don't for bacon, but we do for eggs.  We do about 2-3 carbs per egg.  It works for her.  And she doesn't go low either.

  • We have to dose for eggs- thy make Kaelyn go high every time. We typically do 4 or eggs, sometimes I add a bit more depending on time of day, what else she is having and premeal BG.

    That's probably not helpful at all  <roflmao> <nuts>

  • Wow, I've never thought to cover for eggs. This might explain some of our breakfast spikes.  <roflmao>
