Question of Week | How much insulin for Turkey Dinner?

JR is going to a friend’s house for Thanksgiving.  JR has type 1 diabetes and is nervous about figuring out how much insulin to take with this carb heavy celebration. 

What would be the best approach?

  1. Encourage JR to eat a meal at home before they arrive, so they won’t be tempted by high carb choices.
  2. Ask JR to write up a list that summarizes the pros and cons of eating extra carbs on a special holiday.
  3. Give JR a hug and recognize how hard holidays can be, while encouraging JR to share their feelings.
  4. Discuss JR’s favorite Thanksgiving foods and review carb servings and strategies to reach JR’s goals.
