It seems that if I drink alcohol and eat pizza at the same time, I don't get the spike 6-12 hours afterwards.. in fact, I need an 85% temp basal (i.e. a basal reduction of 15%). I'm not talking about vast amounts of alcohol here.. like 2-3 small glasses of wine. (Alcohol is legal here from 16 with a meal, btw. I'm not promoting illegal activities. ) Obviously I'm not promoting that you should all feed your kids wine along with their pizza... but I just thought it was cool.
