If my endo told me that diabetes is really only about food, I'd fire 
him/her and get a new endo.  I can eat the same exact food each day 
and have totally different blood sugar results.  Controlling bg is 
more than just food.  It's exercise, it's stress.  It's infections, 
it's locations of infusion sets and so much more.  It's the phase of 
the moon and the evil pump fairy too.

It's not just about food.
