Don't you hate it when you make a silly mistake?
After me saying I had nailed my evening meal bolus doses yesterday I woke up at 1am this morning with a blood glucose of 19.3!!
After I corrected and got back into bed I realised it must of been the carbs in my spaghetti, I had hardly took any insulin compared to what I normally take for pasta, the only thing I had done differently was I referred to the packet for the carb value (rather than my Dafne book).
When I got up this morning I checked the packet nutrition info:
As cooked per guidelines
Whenever I have pasta it's usually about 70g of carbs, but for some reason I seemed to forget this, I think I was too pre-occupied with telling my boyfriend how clever this pump was and trying to give him a demo as he was washing up. So then I checked my Dafne book:
Pasta - fresh - uncooked
100g = 55g carbs
So my 125g portion was near enough 70g of carbs.
If only I was as on the ball as this pump seems to be!
