On Sunday I went to my grandson’s birthday party. My blood glucose was in the 90’s at the beginning of the party. I had no snacks. For dinner, I had one small roll with cheese along with some celery and other raw veggies. As far as I know, I bolused properly for what I ate. Instead of birthday cake and ice cream, I had a cup of tea.
When I got home, my blood glucose was 186. My typical reaction would be to look in the mirror and say that I made a mistake. I hardly ate. I estimated the carbs and took a bolus. I wasn’t even tempted by cake and ice cream and had none.
So what did I do wrong?
