Monitoring your carbohydrates

Not knowing how to monitor or reduce your carbohydrates is an important barrier in your diabetes self-management. This is something that requires attention in the health care setting in which you are treated. Please contact your health care professional to explain that you have difficulties in monitoring and/or reducing your carbs. Ask whether a dietician, diabetes nurse or doctor can explain it to you (again). Don’t be shy or ashamed to ask! It is good and brave to acknowledge that you want to learn more about your self-management!
