Afrezza: Pizza and Other Foods

Below are quotes from the discussion: Restaurant Food

Here is the main question posed in that thread:

“Just wondering who has problems eating out. I rarely do. Went to lunch with a friend. Had NE clam chowder…about 3/4 cup, and six oysters on the half shell. Figured 30 carbs. With corrections, I have now bolused for 286 carbs–for 3/4 cup of soup. I left the four chunks of potato in the bowl.

WHAT DO RESTAURANTS DO TO FOOD???? I have made decadent chowder and oyster stew—with cream, of course–at home and bolused perfectly. Oysters? Come on.

Do I look at food in a restaurant, decide it is 30 carbs and then multiply by 9.53? Can I ever eat out without all this stress?

Here is a comment in that thread:

This is where afrezza shines. I spent a week this summer on the river in San Antonio eating all the random tex mex I could handle, didn’t even try to count carbs… Just tooted the whistle and went on my merry way. Think I got up to 170 once when I ate a bunch of pizza. I’m not sure it’s superior when you actually know how many carbs you’re eating— but when you’re eating out or otherwise on the go it is a vastly superior method.

Here is an Afrezza user’s comment regarding dosing and timing for pizza:

“I have found that pizza digests slower than Afrezza, So I do eat it while taking more smaller doses spread out. 4 units, wait 15 min, then another 4 units, then a 8, and so on. For carbs that are quick like a Coke I take a 8 unit with it. The CGM helps with this, but you could still do it with test strips also. You would maybe hit 200 and then go back down.

So, it the end I’ve had a large Pizza and coke meal and didn’t ever go above 150. And I was back down to around 100 again after two hours.”

Here is an Afrezza user’s comment regarding dosing and timing for meals with heavy carbs: bread, pizza, pasta, etc:

“Don’t forget with afrezza (meals with heavy carbs: bread, pizza, pasta, etc) require a follow up dose…around 90 mins after a meal. Dial afrezza in!”
