Hi all I am what my nurses call "still newly diagnosed" (I began type 1 treatment in mid-July having been wrongly diagnosed as type 2) and have only just been introduced to carb-counting. My nurses recommended "Carbs & Cals" app and book. Today we went out for lunch and I looked up the menu and calculated my carbs for a cheese panini and a handful of chips as 87. My next bg test showed a huge spike and it reminded me that I have always had large spikes after eating either a cheese roll or this cheese panini. Now Carbs & Cals lists cheese as 0 carbs. Is it possible that I react weirsly or strangely to cheese, even though it has 0 carbs? Are there foods that certain people react to differently to the textbook? Can carbs & cals be trusted? I have so many questions and my nurses are becoming irritated that I contact them for help too often, which has also put my back up a bit!
