Hi @jane I’ve also tried many strategies with mixed results, I tend to bolus but I also tend to crank the basal up as well.

I normally give myself a few units before I start eating/drinking at these events so there’s some insulin active in my system.

Since I’ve been on the pump I’ve found certain carbs give me problems, so breads & pastry act much longer than they used to, but upping my bolus by 50% offsets this.

Unfortunately everyones different & you’ll have to try a few different things till you find something that generally works! Frequent checking of blood sugar is highly recommended though!
