Problems with high blood sugar after high fat meal?
After eating a high fiber or high fat meal, my bs spikes to 300-500 for 4-6 hours no matter how much insulin I take. I am now eliminating fat & fiber from meals but every once in a while, something will surprise me.

Thanks for providing the additional information about having gastroparesis. This is more common for diabetics as you well know. I'm glad to hear that the Joslin Center has done studies on this. You sound like you are very well-informed on this topic which is a good thing. You also consult with a dietician, also good.
I would like to refer you to conversations on Connect directly related to gastroparesis. Here is the link that will take you to those discussions, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/gastroparesis/?orderby=DESC#chv4-comment-stream-header.
You do not mention any exercise program in dealing with your symptoms of gastroparesis, however, gentle exercise can be very helpful for both the gastroparesis as well as diabetes. Here is a link to several YouTube videos about gastroparesis and exercises for same, https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=gastroparesis+exercises. You might try some of them.
I look forward to hearing from you again. Will you post and update on your progress as you deal with this problem?
Here is a good YouTube video about gastroparesis that you might find helpful,
I am so sorry you are having to deal with this. I am type 1 for 53 years. The stomach emptying test was done. The endo dr said it was gastroparesis. The gastro dr said it was not, but I did have an unusual test result. I was slow to empty in the first two stages but normal in the last two. His comment to me was that I have an unhappy stomach. That was it. I have moved and will start over with doctors and see what they say. I am just sticking to my low fat diet.
The gastro dr said I do not have gastroparesis. I walk a mile or so most days, when the blood sugars are high, I walk 1-2 miles or so to bring them down.
