Hi All! I’m a Type 1 Diabetic new to Huel. In searching the forum, I’ve seen a handful of Type 2 related questions, and not so many for Type 1. If folks are interested, I’d be happy to share my experience using Huel and managing my blood sugar, weight, etc.
Here’s an example:
Food Intake: Huel (127g) + Banana
Carbs Counted: (47g carbs - 9g fiber) + 15g for Banana = 51g
Insulin Taken: Humalog (Use your conversion rates)
Timing of Insulin: 1 min before drinking shake
Blood Sugar Before: 71
Blood Sugar 2hrs After: 204
Takeaway: I had success taking a few more units about 15 minutes before I ate the shake yesterday. I dialed back a bit because I was 71 before the shake. Also, I worked out pretty hard the last two days so I dialed back my long acting insulin by 1 unit. Will monitor again tomorrow to see if I can avoid the morning climb after my shake.
