During my last appointment, my diabetes educator said that I should start counting protein grams in addition to carbs to determine the proper bolus. She said that I should count half of the grams of protein and add that to the carbs.
Have any of you heard this before?
I’m a little nervous since I’m prone to lows in the morning (probably caused by my slacker of a pancreas kicking out the little insulin it still produces then) as it is. I think my insulin/carb ratio would change – just because I’d be adding more grams to the count for the same foods I’d counted lower in the past.
