"Good question. A diabetic educator or a doc could give you the parameters that your bro should be using for his diabetes, for my husband it's 150 g a day, this gives him the good he needs, and the lack of calories to lose some weight also. You…"

"Aron, very simplistically, eating carbs causes your blood-sugar levels to rise. Just about everyone in the diabetes world advocates some level of carb-control, though the recommendations vary widely, and that's an understatement. How is…"

"In type 2 diabetes the critical thing is what carbs you are injesting. The Glycemic Index is a good startomg point"

"For Type 2's not on insulin carb counting is used to keep bgs in range after meals 120-140. By frequent 1 and 2 hour testing you can find how sensitive you are to certain carbs. It is really a trial and error process and e eventually you know…"

"LADA is Type 1, it is just a form that comes on my gradually. So his body is still making some insulin and as that decreases his needs for exogenous insulin will change. You don't give much details about in what way it is "hard to…"

"Thanks for the advice. he did had c-peptide test and all that, and was identified as LADA. he's using the pump, with a minimum dose of insulin, but find it quite hard to balance (does it make sense that Lada is less "logical" then…"

Zoe replied to Alon Levi's discussion 'Type-2 carb counting?'
"Kind of away from your question, but you say your brother was found out to be "type 2 (or perhaps LADA). LADA is Type 1 and calls for a different approach. If his type isn't clear he should request antibody testing and c-peptide."
