I told someone yesterday, “It doesn’t matter that I’ve had diabetes for 51 years. Any day, every day, my blood sugar can go too high and too low and often does.” How refreshing to see my favorite TCOYD d-boys, both endocrinologists who got type 1 at 15 years old, Drs Steven Edelman and Jeremy Pettus, get it as wrong as me.
In this wonderful video they challenge themselves, and each other, to guess the amount of carbs and calories in a variety of breakfasts, lunches and dinners. God love ’em, in their words, “it’s all a crap shoot!” Ain’t that the truth.
One thing to note that they also point out, while carbs are the dominant force in raising blood sugar, don’t forget an abundance of fat and protein also raise blood sugar, and do it over a longer period of time.

I get to mad at carbs, but it isn’t just carbs that rise glucose. But preaching to the choir!
