Re: [IPk] CHO v UNITS OF INSULIN



Michael,

This was some time ago but I've just been sorting through. Excuse me for 
being dense but what calculation do you do for measuring by volume?
I know the dry weight carbohydrate content and short of cooking my son's 
weighed pasta separately I'm confused....
