    All I do is weight my carbs, however most of my meals are at home so it’s a bit easier than when I eat out. I generally find there is more fat and sugars when I eat out compared to home cooked food, not good for people who eat out a lot!

    Carbs and Cals was first published as a book (see Amazon) but is also available as an app. It gives a reasonable insight into carb levels in meals. The app version also allows recording of carb intake in meals.

    Before each meal and before bed is the standard. Remember you can not improve (your BGL) if you are not measuring.

    I use MiaoMiao as the CGM to monitor my BG, it alerts me when my BG is not normal, it's a life changer to me. Love it so much.

    It seems very uneasy for young kids to do the basal rate testing, since they can't express clearly if they are "feeling low". More frequently Bg checks (maybe every 30 minutes?)are needed in the circumstance, which is too much painful for young kids.

    Another fantastic book is PUMPING INSULIN by John Walsh and Ruth Roberts. this was my bible when I first went on a pump just over 10 yrs ago. I would recommend Stephen Ponders - SUGAR SURFING as mentioned above also.

    My best book ever is “think like pancreases”

    Sugar surfing- it was waste of my time
