The other night I received this picture from my son.
After my arteries recovered from the shock of seeing all of that fat, I turned to the question that my son had sent.
“How much do you figure I should bolus for the fish cakes?”
How high were you before you started?
“Oh, I have that covered.”
Did you pre-bolus the burger and fries and extend the bolus as well?
“Yep! Gotter dun. What are you thinking on the fish cakes?”
They are massive! That is a lot of potato in each cake.
We continue to discuss what we felt constituted a proper bolus for the fish cakes. My thought was there looked to be about 1.5 cups of potato per cake so he would want to bolus a minimum of 90g CHO for the pair. He agreed.
I can’t tell you if we guessed correctly or how he managed with the extended bolus for the rest of the “meal”. Finishing year-end English assignments required to pass grade 12 were much more important. Its kind of nice when we can put diabetes in the back seat to regular life for a change!
