So when my son was diagnosed, we were basically taught that "what" we ate was not as important as counting the carbs in what he ate. Honestly, we changed very little in our diet after his diagnosis. We became experts at counting carbs and his control was always quite good. However, more recently I've been reading about the glycemic index and wondering if we've done a disservice to our son.
So I'm wondering how strict other families/diabetics are in their diet. What do you do? How do you monitor and choose?
