Carb Counting for Diabetes

Carb counting is important if you live with diabetes, because carbs are the main contributor to blood sugar levels. Here, you’ll learn the basics of carb counting, including tips like:
You have to find the amount of carbohydrates that helps keep your blood sugar in your target range.
Some people prefer to count every gram and some keep track of “carb servings.” A carb serving is about 15 grams of carbs.
Testing your blood sugar after meals and snacks tells you how the foods you eat impact your levels.
Refined carbohydrates on their own can cause bigger spikes in your blood sugar than complex carbohydrates, and pairing carbs with proteins and fats helps moderate spikes.
