Yes I do to some extent when I purchase items @ grocery, No my daughter-in-law is just now deciding its important to her health to check her blood sugar daily and not to try and see how much she can drive her sugar up by being negligent and not caring, now after loosing 4 toes and a retna in one eye & 2 serious bone infections in her right foot and we are both Type 2..

no neither of us count carbs, know we aree suppose to, I look at carbs when I buy something but thats all, no my daughter in law is not that serious, she has just started taking insulin and checking sugar readings on a normal system.

Have her check her blood sugar before and after meals if she doesn’t want to do carb counting for insulin doses.

Thank you very much for those good words, I have seen Liver Dr. last week and he had some interesting suggestions, One that would help me in several points of my body, would be bariactic surgery. So meeting with my primary dr. Wednesday to discuss all the good and bad of this remedy. Thanks for the good offer, everyone seems to be so nice and helpful here.
