How one reacts to alcohol is a very individual thing. I drink on a daily basis, although very moderately. I don't count the carbs in alcohol even if it's above 15g, but I am not on a low carb diet...

Hillary, I'm glad that you are doing well with your pump. However, I don't recommend taking a bolus for the carbs in your beer. That can cause hypoglycemia. Admittedly, .3 for 3gs is such a low...

In reference to the original question, I do not eat low carb (I'm type 1) nor does my 80 year old father (who is type 2). Given that your last a1c was 5.6, why are you beating yourself up over this,...

Just for the record, it was not my original intention to launch a debate on the positives or negatives of an ultra low carb.
