After a few months of feeling unwell and having consistently high numbers (last hba1c 113) I have been "upgraded" to type 1 after an original type 2 diagnosis, I'm 40 years old. I started insulin on Tuesday after being given an emergency appointment. 15u lantus 8u novorapid When I read all of the info from my diabetic team the focus is on carb counting, before I was told to go low carb. Do I need to eat more carbs now? How many in a day? I haven't yet seen a dietician and I don't have an appointment for the diabetic clinic until the end of April.
