Sans gravy. But I'm off in a ditch here....
They tell me 28gC, and I bolused for 30g plus the correction.
About 90 minutes later, I test again. I'm in the 280s. Hmmm......
So, I bolus for the correction and run a Temp Basal of 125% for an hour.
60 minutes later, I test again.
I'm still in the 250s.
My guess is that although I ordered a Diet Coke, I was served a non carb free beverage instead.
Fast forward until just a few minutes ago, and someone on Facebook commented on a tweet I made explaining the situation.
Heli explained that they test their drinks whenever they go out to avoid confusion.
I asked if that meant testing the drink just like a drop of blood.
Diane overhears me exclaim "WOW!", and gets out a juice box and grabs the Diet Mtn Dew I was drinking. (Apparently this trick is in the D-Mom handbook. Natch).
I grab my meter and we test a drop of the juice.
I test a drop of the diet soft drink:
I am still trying to pick my jaw up off the floor.
I NEVER KNEW THAT.

Even after all these decades.
So cool. I still am in awe.
