As someone with a sugar impairment I should know better, last night my daughter wanted a Macky Dees for her and her sleepover friend, ok no problem but I wandered to the nearby Chinese takeaway as I can mostly inject for their special curry and chips. 3 units more insulin and my bloods started to rise like a rocket :/ for which the usual solution is another injection, but not last night as that meal needed 15 extra units of insulin (over 4 injections) and my bloods reached 20 mmol which isn't big or clever.
Very very odd, in a normal day eating around 160g carbs over 3 meals I use around 17u fast acting insulin (+ 12.5u basal) but that one meal used 23.5u alone which on the surface is shocking, but then I was at the end of the cartridge so perhaps should have changed it sooner.
A nice curry though
Why you eating any carbs at all? Insulin will kill you.
