Outside of honeymooning, I think most T1s will require at least a small amount of bolus insulin if just to handle the conversion of some amount of protein to glucose. Even following Bernstein's carb recommendations I'd probably have to do a few units of Novolog for that plus a little for protein.

Thank you for your help! I don't follow a specific diet, but I do eat low carbs and high protein. Any recommendations? I want to start something new this year for dieting. Maybe some type of mix of Paleo?

I'd say keep the low carb, but switch to moderate protein and high fat. Excess protein, beyond what we need for maintaining our muscles and organs, gets converted to glucose. So your high protein component may be accounting for your higher than you'd like numbers.

The honeymoon phase is a time for T1 when there's still some function from the pancreas so there's still some insulin production.

LADA, also T 1.5 or slow onset T1, Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults...
