Does anyone else struggle with eating out!? My diagnoses changed from type 2 to type 1 back in May so I am fairly new to working out carb contents etc. Originally I was on fixed dose Novorapid but this wasnt working for me....one day I'd have salad for lunch, the next a BigMac. The diabetic nurses have put me on a ratio of 1:6 which actually works well....most of the time!! I've had to stay away from home quite a lot recently for work and have stayed in a varying degree of hotel from Premier Inn up to De'Vere country house hotels. It has amazed me that the Premier Inn when asked for the carb content of their food, produce a folder which contains the nutritional information for every single item on their menu. The first of the 'posher' hotels I stayed in, the chef gave me the carb content of uncooked pasta. I had no idea. I just knew that it couldn't be right as it was so high. Got on the net and on Carbs & Cals and luckily figured what was wrong with the figure he gave me before injecting. Tonight, I had rump lamb with Moroccan spices and freekeh. The chef told me (via a waiter) it would be between 100g carbs and 175g carbs!! That's approximately 13 units of insulin difference. I injected for the 100g estimate and still had a hypo!! It shocks me the difference in the data that's available for different restaurants but I've decided its safer for me to eat a McDonald's than attempt to trust a chefs 'best guess'!!
