Insulin Stacking


(Dennis J. Dacey, PWD) #1

Over the years that I’ve been posting here I’ve often used the term Insulin Stacking and several commentators have asked me to explain. Yesterday the Joslin diabetes Center - often described as the world’s foremost diabetes treatment and research hub - published this guide in avoiding Insulin Stacking: http://blog.joslin.org/2018/04/insulin-stacking-are-you-bolusing-with-your-emotions/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+JoslinDiabetesCenterBlog+(Joslin+Diabetes+Center+Blog)

This should be useful for all using insulin no matter which tools you may choose to use for your management.

Thank you! I look forward to reading it - this never made sense to me since you want to cover whatever you eat … I recently FINALLY got some control over my numbers by keeping carbs to a minimum - I know this is a no brained, but due to hormones, my basal/bolus ratios changed week to week.
Thanks again for all your posts throughout the years!
