Thanks for the immediate response


Aim to have a consistent amount of low Gi carbs at each meal, about 50 grammes. Keep protein to about 20g per meal, and adjust intake of natural fat depending on whether he needs to maintain or lose weight. This should facilitate keeping insulin needs low.


Thanks for your help

He is a lean boy of abt 45 kg & there is a family history of DM, with me & my parents having Type 2.


If it's type 1 diabetes, why Glimp 1M is prescribed? It's for secretion of insulin in D2M cases
