    Cabbage (chopped) has roughly 5 grams of carbs per cup, of which 3 are fibre (net = 2g), so unless you are eating a massive plate full of it at one serving, or trying to keep your carbs to almost zero, there is not too much to worry about.

    you can't avoid carbs. But you can avoid the obvious ones in pasta, rice, potato and bread.

    But what - if anything - did that cabbage do to your glucose levels??

    ETA It's not that carbs are all essentially bad, it's what they can do to your glucose levels that's the issue. So if you choose to eat some carbs, take heed of the results you see on your meter , and use the information you gain from them to manage your carbohydrate consumption.
