food measurementThis course is for those who have a basic understanding of carbohydrate gram counting but want to do so with greater ease and precision.  Accurate carb counting is particularly important to those who are matching mealtime insulin doses to carb intake.  The purpose is not to judge or recommend what you put into your mouth, but to make you more proficient at quantifying it so that you can dose properly.  Specific topics include:

  • The rationale behind counting carbs
  • Simple vs. complex carbs
  • How to handle the “other” carbs (fiber, sugar alcohol)
  • Traditional counting techniques
  • Modern sources of carb information
  • Use of carb factors
  • Portion estimation and conversion to carb grams
  • Fat and protein: effects on blood glucose
