Two years ago I was diagnosed with diabetes type 1. Since then I have used insulin without having to carb-count. As of two months ago I have had to start counting my carbs, and now use insulin with everything I eat, as opposed to only the major meals. According to my clinic this happens occasionally, which brings me to my question: why does it happen and does it represent a worsening of my diabetes situation? There was no apparent change to my diet that caused the change in treatment.
