Insulin to cover coffee
Any other insulin dependent coffee drinkers here?
I usually skip breakfast and have 2 cups of strong french pressed coffee. I've found that I need about 4 units of humalog to cover this in the morning....less if I were to drink the same amount later in the day (dawn phenomenon?). I've been trying to eat breakfast again in anticipation of spring & morning traing rides so I'll have some fuel. The strange thing I've noticed is that I don't need any additional insulin to cover 2 fried eggs and celery. Anyone else noticed anything similar? I use heavy cream in my coffee as well.
