Since becoming TYPE 1, I have been carb counting. I calculate all my meals and snacks to the gram. I am completely on Nova Rapid insulin and currently am using a pump with blood sensor. I was very thin when I was diagnosed and only with the pump have I been able to gain weight. What an amazing machine. I can't say enough about how I wish every diabetic could have one.
But, I did find carb counting very difficult in the beginning and soon realized what was really in the food I was eating. So, I appreciate that you are teaching others to look at their meals and how it will affect their blood glucose levels.
