Greetings everyone. I am a T1 diabetic, currently using a Medtronic 670G pump with Guardian CGM.
I want to love Huel, I really do. I can’t beat the convenience of making a shake, bolusing, and sitting on my patio with an iPad to start my work for the day. It’s vegan (I am not, but admire those who are), high tech, and quick. I ask Alexa for my newsfeed and the weather, my Roomba starts cleaning, and I get to work online. This is the future they sold to me when I was a child. I enjoy the taste. I like putting my shaker in the dishwasher and being done.
However, my glucose spikes about 100 points mg/dL and that is just not acceptable. So, even if I am at an ideal 80-100, I jump to 180-200, and have to do corrections to come down. I bolus for the carbs, using the ratio that always works for me.
I have even pre-bolus’ed by 20-30 minutes, and
I still get a roller coaster. Before I give up on Huel, does anyone have any thoughts?
