Bullshittery so apparent w. CGM. Correct insulin/carb match not prevent spike for carb-y meal. Maybe ever all D-history. Best hope = not stay high many hours.
Low carb meal—> NO SPIKE. CGM reveal truth. Bigfoot see (twice!) smooth sailing of meat/vegetable dinner. Experience disaster (thrice!) that is oatmeal/maple syrup.
Time for choose:
A. He should be eating exactly as he was before
B. He should be eating meals that do not reliably cause a spike
A. Relax! A spike isn’t so bad as long as he comes down quickly
B. Secretly freak out! A spike hurts him in the short term (moody, confused) and the long term (eyes, toes, heart, yaddayadda.)
A. Let him be a kid! He has enough to deal with; he shouldn’t have to feel different because of what he’s eating. Besides, kids need carbs.
B. He is already wearing medical devices imbedded in his skin and not eating anything without an adult analyzing its carb content. Nothing about this is normal! Eating Twizzlers is never going to be normal! I don’t even like Twizzlers!**
Bigfoot answer: B, B and B. It’s the carbs, stupid. Problem not just famous spiky foods (pizza, Cheerios). Problem any beau coup carbs. Even tra la la wholesome homemade organic granola w. whisper maple syrup + almond milk tra la la. Some level Bigfoot always know this. But only sink in today.
Sink-in courtesy Dexcom G4 + more reasoned, less rant-y Ranting T1 Mom recent food post. Love Dolores idea re-make entire family a la Whole30 even though currently impossible Bigfoot imagine household sans peanut butter, beer, graham crackers, yogurt, marmalade, Cadbury Mini-egg.
Sure, once teen Bubs arrive/drive car/college/buy house/marry Twizzler-eater, Bigfoot not so able control food. But for now Bigfoot control! Bigfoot control shit out of! Grrrrrr.
