Lisinopril and Pickle Juice Cravings...

Hi everyone! Should I be worried that I am craving pickle juice worse that I have ever craved anything before in my life-and that's saying a lot bc I have been T1D for 27 years!

Eb replied to Jennitar's discussion 'What is it with White Rice?'
"White rice is worse than any other food for me. I must be very efficient at digesting it. I'd swear it also takes more insulin per gram of carbohydrate, e.g. a unique insulin to carb ratio. Almost like it was greater than 100% carbohydrate…"
