Q1. Do you take time to look at food labels? If so, do you look at grams of carbs or sugar (or both)?

Q2. Do you or your child follow the ADA exchange, carb choices, glycemic index or count the amount of carbs consumed? do they play an important part in managing your diabetes?

Q3. The cost of eating “healthy” can be a huge problem for people with diabetes. Please share any tips on how to eat well on a budget.

Q5. How do you handle the negativity surrounded by what you eat from people who do not understand diabetes?
