carbohydrate intake to insulin. We all know it's not absolutely perfect with 
no first phase insulin response but we can do a pretty good job of matching 
with timing, multiple or extended boluses, analog insulin action etc. My 
area is very slow to make change but I'm working hard at it especially with 
the problems of lack of funding for education etc.

I am new to this list and joined as I am having problems with my pump and 
control at present and need to talk to others.  I have had diabetes since 
1961 and was taught to use carbohydrates from the beginning.  It is only 
recently that I have joined a list a was very surprised to find that this 
sort of education is not given.  How do people work out their insulin if 
they don't know carbohydrate values?  Why did they dieticians change from 
this method?
