Carbohydrate Counting

(En español: Conteo de carbohidratos)

Say: kar-bo-hi-drate kown-ting

Carbohydrates ("carbs") are found in food. Eating them increases blood sugar levels. That's why many people with diabetes count their carbohydrates to keep track of how much they're eating. Carb counting helps them select the right dose of insulin. The dose should match the amount of carbs a person eats, so that blood sugar levels stay under control.
