I have been a Diabetic since 1989 when I was 25 but have never counted carbs My doctor retired last year and my new doc wants me to count carbs my A1c has ran 6.8 - 7.3 my last A1c was 6.7 in February. I take 35 units of Lantus at bedtime and 5-15 units of humalog with each meal depending on what I eat and what my bg is before meals. Any suggestions on how to start this carb counting it is so different than what I am use to. I don't understand this carb to insulin ratio. and now since I have been trying this my blood sugars are ranging 250-300. Now I am just frustrated. I don't understand why mess with something that was working.
