My mother is type 2 and I am hypoglycemic, there is a strong family history of diabetes, I just learned my grandfather on my father's side was type 1. I'm confused on how to count carbs and how many "counts" to have at each meal. My mother's doctor allows her 4 "counts" per meal and each "count" is 15 grams. Is this common or how do I find out how many per meal? No money and no insurance for a doctor.
