Type 2


If you’re a Type 2 diabetic, there are a few main things you can do to improve your glucose levels: eat fewer sweet foods, possibly go on a low carbohydrate diet (as seen in the Newcastle study), and take more exercise. However, as well as improving your glucose levels it is a good idea to care more for the bits of your body that are most at risk.

Information & Advice

Carbs & Cals - Book and app

So you want to learn how to carb count, and look at the back of packet to see nutritional breakdown per 100g. But what does that look like in real life, and how many carbs are there in my plate of pasta? This fantastic book (also available as app) lets you see just that! A range of meals and portion sizes are photographed with their nutritional values noted down by them. So you can say pretty accurately what you’re eating and take the right amount insulin to cover the carb load.

Carbs and Cals is nothing short of a diabetic institution and, with the right application, can really help you get a handle on your glucose levels.
