Testing to obtain your blood glucose number

To stay free of diabetes related complications you need to hold non diabetic blood glucose fasting numbers i.e. 4 - 6 mmol. To know what your blood glucose numbers are you need to test with a B.G. meter. When starting a low carbohydrate diet this should be done when rising, one and two hours after every meal and just before you turn in for the night. Insulin users may need to carry out additional blood glucose checks.

Calculating your carbohydrate intake

Only by knowing the amount of carbohydrate in each food you consume can you make a decision as to what foods you can leave in your daily diet. The cheapest and most cost effective way is to use ordinary kitchen scales, a calculator and calorie/carb. counting book. Remember no two people are exactly the same where carb. intake and holding good B.G. numbers are concerned. In the early days it is very much a trial and error exercise. By spending time and effort to get your diet right for you, it will pay dividends for the rest of your life.
