hello @CharBaby, I travel a lot for work. Carb counting at restaurants is the hardest thing. Restaurants can pack 100 grams into something that wouldn’t ordinarily have any carbs. It might be a good time to check in with a CDE for some carb estimating strategies (plate method, for example)
the strategy I use is to get into the habit of testing at 2 hours after a meal. If you test at +2 hours, and you took enough insulin, your blood sugar should be no higher then 50mg/dl above your pre meal number. example, you test before a meal=120, then eat, then test 2 hours later and your bs should be about 180. Higher than that means you’ll need to take a walk or more insulin, lower means watch out for a low.
bring lots of extra testing supplies (2x what you really need) and at least a little extra of everything else. Japan is pretty built up so it’s not like she’ll be isolated or in a 3rd world area. hope she has a good trip.
