Ever since my mother started her Basal and Bolus insulin, I make sure she's eating abt 40/50 grams of carbs per meal. Does that seem like a lot? I mean she is 100 lbs, she has lost a crazy amount of weight from her face. I did notice however, this morning..her stomach looked rather bigger than usual. I'm guessing it's from the Lantus or those carbs. Before she was a complete stick figure so a little tummy now is a good thing lol. I keep hearing abt the LCHF diet but I don't think that would work with my mom, as she is already thin. What would you say abt Protein Drinks? Ensure, Glucerna is a no no( 26 grams of carbs::::ridiculous:::: Whey protein for weight gain? I've read mixed reviews that these kind of drinks are not good for the kidney and then they are, as long as they're flushed out with water. What to believe, who to believe? Thank you so much for all of your help, your presence is truly felt all throughout Tudiabetes!
