As I've previously mentioned, I'm 31 years old and have had type 1 since July of 2003. I use 2 daily injections of basal insulin (totaling about 18 units) and a bolus (1 unit per 15 g of carbs) of either regular or novolog depending on the nature of the meal. My 2-hour readings are nearly always in the 65 - 100 range (according to 2 different meters), but I am still plagued with excessive thirst and dry mouth from ~1 hour after a meal until ~3 hours later. This happens whether I eat a big meal with lots of carbs or something low enough in carbs to meet the Bernstein criteria (such as a subway salad with double meat, no croutons or crackers). Interestingly enough, the thirst problem doesn't result from smaller snacks, be they nuts and cheese or a small granola bar (which is covered by a little extra Lente about 5 hours earlier). The point is that the granola bar has about the same carb content as the chicken salad, yet does not cause the subsequent thirst when both are adequately covered. Thirst seems to be proportional to the size of the meal, whether it has significant carbs or not, assuming that it is adequately covered. Any ideas as to the cause or possible remedy of the thirst problem? Due to crappy insurance, it will probably be a couple of more months until my next endrinologist visit. I already asked a dentist about this issue yesterday and he didn't have an answer.
