The only guidance i've received from my endocronologist about taking insulin
to cover a meal is to take meal-covering insulin if my sugar's 170 or above.
at the most i've done 2 units because i've found that i apparently don't eat
enough to cover more than that. in fact, i've had problems with lows with
only 1 unit of the insulin to cover meals. i have a general idea of the
kinds of foods that are likely to run up my sugar and their quantities but i
confess i don't get down to a real carb/calorie count.
