CARBOHYDRATE COUNTING

People with Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes must match their carbohydrate intake to their insulin dose.  To get the best blood sugar result, carbohydrate counts must be accurate.  Carbohydrates are counted in grams – even a few grams can make a difference in one’s blood glucose level.
