My Endocronologist wants me on an 1800 calorie diet and count my carbs...Part of my humolog insulin regimen depends on the amount of carbs I consume per meal, but I don't know how many carbs per day I'm allowed?
Tomato05 responded:
It depends on what percentage of your food intake the endocrinologist wants you to eat as carbs.

If it is for example 60%, then you can eat about 260g of carbs.
