It is amazing that the NHS are happy to spend money on treating those diabetics who suffer with raised Hba1c and associated problems but they will not spend money on teaching carb counting v insulin to diabetics so that they achieve a better balanced lifestyle.

I’m glad I was taught the basics in 1976 which haven’t really changed. I’m also glad that I didn’t listen to the “oh you can eat what you want” 10 years on. Yes carb counting can be a hassle and yes I do get it wrong but by taking care of what I eat and inject I hope to live for a few more years yet without complications.
