What are you eating? How high are they ? If you are not calculating correctly or right on the carb ratio it could affect it

That's good because thy will be able to help more. I would try to write down what your eating and the amount I insulin your having for that meal and tracking it to see how our numbers turn out after. Just a suggestion

Count carbs, it's a simple action but not always so simple to practice day in and day out. Ask your specialist about a carb ratio, and your body's insulin sensitivity levels. If you start with high sugar when you give your set amount of insulin at meal time a portion of what you use is probably going to correction of the high blood sugar which means the amount you are taking to cover your meals is no longer enough. Just a thought from a T1 of 32 years.
