Change to carb - hypo treatment

Postby mish_au » Fri Jan 05, 2018 5:31 pm

I sometimes use soft drink or oj for a hypo, I have about 100 ml/15g carbs, then retest. Trying really hard not to over treat. :-)

Realised last week that Sprite has started adding Stevia, and so the carbs for 100ml dropped from about 15g to 9g.

Not a 'huge' difference, but certainly noticeable when trying to manage hypos!

So just a reminder to check the carbs even if its a regular food or drink.
