I want to add - sometimes your "peak timing" can be pretty variable.

I began on Smylin a few months back and I have yet to discern any rhyme or reason for when my peak will occur. Symlin is supposed to cause slowing of gastric emptying so you'd expect the peak to be later, but it varies. I can't find a "rule" about this with regards to macronutrient content of the meal either - doesn't matter if it's low-carb, low-fat, or what - it just varies.

Also, if I take enough Novolog to keep my postprandial peak under 140, I go low before my next preprandial measurement. It "seems" as if Symlin slows down the action of Novlog too.

In short, there's just too many variables to figure it out properly. I am considering stopping Symlin cause of this.
