Counting Carbs From All Food Groups

MyNetDiary counts carbs from all food groups, not just from the major carb-containing food groups such as starches, fruit, milk, and sweets/sugars. Therefore, the carb count could be higher than a traditional carb count by hand.

If you use an insulin:carb ratio, you might need to adjust your carb portion upwards to reduce risk of hypoglycemia. For instance, 1 unit insulin:15 grams carbs might need to be changed to 1 unit of insulin:20 grams carbs. This should not be taken as a medical prescription - it is only an example of how a ratio could change when carbs from all food groups are counted.

Please contact your diabetes care team for specific instructions and guidelines.

Ensure Correct Carb Count

For people with diabetes, ensuring correct carb count is very important. Please be aware of the following considerations, helping you to ensure you log correct carb count:

1) Make sure you searched for and selected the correct food. Some foods may have similar names, but different nutritional composition and thus different carb count.

2) Always check and compare Nutrition Facts of the food you selected in MyNetDiary and Nutrition Facts printed on the packaging or restaurant menu of the food you've eaten. This will help you to ensure that you selected the correct food and that its nutrition facts in MyNetDiary are up to date - some vendors change food recipe and ingredients. If the food is correct but Nutrition Facts are different, create and use a custom food to ensure correct carb count.

3) Make sure you select correct portion size. If portion size is not right, the carb count will be off.
