I recently discovered that if I spend long periods of time online looking at websites that contain images of carb heavy foods, my blood sugar rises. It seems that I need to take account of the carbs I’m exposed to online when calculating my insulin dosage.
Sorry, that’s complete garbage, it just sprung into my head when I wrote the title of the post and seemed a more interesting opening paragraph than “I’ve found a cool online carb counting course”.
That is what I actually wanted to say. I have found a cool (and free) e-learning course that will help you to work out how to count carbs and adjust insulin doses accordingly. And if you’re a particularly interesting diabetic who thinks their life should include alcohol, exercise and eating out, there’s an advanced section which covers that too.
If you’ve heard people enthusing about DAFNE (Dose Adjusting for Normal Eating), BERTIE and various other amusingly named courses that help you to work out how to adjust your insulin according to what you eat and do, this is a very similar thing. Except it’s online rather than in a darkened room in a hospital basement.
