One "carb" contains 15 grams of carbohydrate. Carbohydrates are mainly responsible for the rise in blood sugar that occurs after eating, so people with diabetes can use carbohydrate counting to match the amount of insulin they take with the amount of carbohydrate eaten in a meal or snack. This technique can help people achieve better control of blood sugar levels as they manage their diabetes.</p> Recuento de hidratos de carbonoMuchas personas que sufren de diabetes recurren al conteo de carbohidratos para calcular la cantidad de carbohidratos en los alimentos que comen.https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/es/parents/carb-counting-esp.html/2608e102-adfe-4129-b088-92203100e6ffkh:age-allAgesOrAgeAgnostickh:clinicalDesignation-endocrinologykh:genre-dictionarykh:primaryClinicalDesignation-endocrinologyDiabetes Words to Knowhttps://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/diabetes-center/words-know/63862b1e-76bb-4a56-9adf-0691e78f1ec8
