After driving back to the city from my parent's house on Saturday night I decided to eat 2 stuffed peppers I had gotten from Whole Foods for dinner. Unfortunately my grander plans of a night out on the town fell through - this could have been a cruel twist of fate. The closest match to my whole foods stuffed peppers was Stoufer's Frozen Stuffed Green Peppers or Stoufer's Frozen Stuffed Peppers with Beef. Calorie King states that these peppers have 21 grams of carbs per serving or 42 grams per serving respectivley (1 pepper). I decided that the whole foods peppers were probably closer to 21 grams of carbs so I gave myself 4 units of insulin to cover the 2 peppers I would be eating. About a half hour later I was trying to move my bike into a less obtrusive corner of my apartment and felt like I was back at the Kappa Sigma house doing 15 shots of Jager in a row - my low hit me like a ton of bricks! I got out my glucometer as quickly as I could and had a blood sugar of 38 - the scariest feeling I have ever had. I quickly chugged about 15 oz of orange juice and had 3 glucose tabs; then called my girlfriend and told her to call me in 15 minutes, if I didn't pick up I told her to call 911. Thankfully in 12 minutes my blood sugar was back to 125 and I eventually needed a unit of insulin to bring my blood sugar down a bit (high of 210). This brings up an interesting problem though - if I'm estimating carbs based on Calorie King software which seems to do a better job of calculating fast food than home cooked meals how can I bolus with confidence? It's clear that the Stoufer's meals have alot more carbs than the whole foods peppers did, in the future I'll know this but how can I avoid this error with other foods in the future? At least my Saturday night provided alot more excitement than the Soprano's finale.
