Re: [IP] Carb Counting with Fiber



Thank you. I only went low once. I am pretty Insulin resistant but do want
to use as little as possible so I can get the weight down. I had gained back
the 35 plus another (20 for good measure) I had lost when I started Lantus
and Novolog (total of 5 times a day). I am hoping that this will help me get
back down. I know most of the pumpers are type 1 and weight is usually not
an issue.
