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:

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!

How do you keep carbs to a minimum for a picky four year old child? Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Keep only healthy options on hand :smile: and enjoy the same in front of them. If they see something they shouldn’t have they’ll most likely want that over something healthier. We struggle with the same as adults.
