I've seen posts that refer to "correcting" for highs. Is this just a pump thing? Or is it a MDI thing, too? No one has ever said anything to us about correcting for highs. I'll get back to this in a few paragraphs.
When my son was diagnosed (April22), his A1C was 13 something. May 14, it was 11 something. July 16 it was 6.4. My son and I gave each other a "you got to be kidding" jaw-dropping-on-the-floor look. Nobody's bragging. If anything, we're just all the more confused by this diabetes gig. Nobody's taking credit. Could be honeymooning. Could be running too low and chasing lows. But I guess we do like to keep tight control.
Anyway, we're headed to Munich middle of next week for a one week vacation (thank you, mother-in-law). We don't want to live in American fast-food places, but, uh, Calorie King doesn't seem to have a Bavaria section. We're still so new at this (just three months) that I don't trust us to fly by the seat of our pants and guess at carbs in foreign food.
So, do you lovely people have any advice to offer about correcting for highs (because I fear we might encounter more of those on foreign soil) or guessing at carbs in strange food?
