I have been struggling with high blood sugars resulting from eating carb AND protein-filled foods, such as pizza, cheese and chicken quesadillas, pasta with cheese, etc. My highs are typically around 300. As an example, if I eat a small quesadilla with chicken and cheese inside, I bolus for 30 grams of carbohydrate. An hour later, I still experience a high and it's become really frustrating lately, as I'm a college student and foods like these are kind of hard to avoid, although I try to avoid them most of the time and try to eat simpler carb choices and smaller amounts of protein, as to avoid going high later.
I have a calorie-king carb counting book, but I think I may need to try dual-wave or square-wave boluses for these meals.
Has anyone had any success with these methods of pumping?..especially for foods like these?
