Nearly as long as I've been on insulin I've had a web sight called LIVESTRONG. They do all kinds of stuff but the only part I use is the nutritional information. It was so amazing! No matter what food I plugged in they would have the nutritional info for it. This included carbs. I used this sight nearly everyday so I could figure my needed insulin at mealtime. They had an app for this sight which made it even more convenient. Over time they would up date the sight. It wasn't until 2 or 3 months ago that after an update I could no longer get to nutritional info. I've contacted them several times but can't get any constructive help. Now I often just guess on my insulin. My numbers remain good but I hate guessing!!! I've tried many other sights but they all just don't have the foods I often put in.
Anyone have any suggestions??? I'm feeling a little desperate .

Gabby they've been telling me for months that they know There is an issue with iPhones and they are trying to get it fixed. It's been months and nothing. After my first contact with them you just keep sending the same "prewritten" messages. FRUSTRATING!!!!!!

I am sorry to hear that. I know new technologies are hard sometimes. We have our share of confusions here as well. Give them some time. I hope it works out. I love that site.

I really like and now that they have a diabetic section it is even better. I don't know why they are not allowing the nutritional information to be accessed. Perhaps there is an update you need on your end?

I know that some favorites of other members are and You might want to try those as well.
