		Paul,

		Ask your diabetes educator or dietitian for the ADA
exchanges book,  I found it
		easier to use it when first starting.  Once I knew what a
serving was and what
		it counted 1 starch exchange = 15 grams Carb = 1 slice of
bread or 1/2 C corn
		etc.  I could then adjust my insulin accordingly.  There are
several books out
		there also.  Check out the bookstore page on the Insulin
Pumpers Web Site.

		BTW  Are you on the pump or Multiple injections?
