[IP] Explaining carbs to T-2s

I think this is probably a no-win situation for us to explain, BECAUSE most
T-2s either watch their diets or take oral meds, therefore, they cannot cover
a carb when eaten. This is another one of those distinctions between the Types
we have been talking about. By pumping, or on MDI for some, the carbs can be
covered at the proper time with the proper amount of injected/infused
insulin - even in 0.1u amounts. (~_^)
