Is anyone on Fiasp & tried this? In theory it should work abit quicker with the quicker released carbs at the start of your meal & has a slightly longer profile than Novorapid, Humalog Lispro or Apidra - which is probably why the Humalog NPH works better too. It might be an idea to suggest a new section in the updated Handbook. The croissant with added nut spread or nut/chocolate spread or cream cheese may be less likely to have as big a rise if it is with jam - but that's if you don't mind having a replacement for your jam!

Never heard of Fiasp but it sounds as if it is the thing of the future if what NOVO says is right!

On advice from my clinic I have started taking Novorapid ten to fifteen minutes before a meal provided I am not low-ish and that has lessened the likelihood of a carb surge considerably. Lots of brownie points! :-)
