    Hi, I am 66 and have been diagnosed type 2, but my diabetes acts closer to type 1 as I am subject to severe lows and highs, am not insulin resistant and my c-peptide is very low, also I am on insulin, using MDI, for this reason I have had to resort to very strict treatment of my diabetes. And although it all has become somewhat habit for me to count carbs on everything, I still get bit, every once in a while. I have always heard that and also read it that if the fiber is under 5 grams not to count it. And, you are saying that I should count it and I somewhat agree with you, but, there has to be a point at which the amount of fiber will not effect my BG, so where is that point or is it (5 gr.) just a safety margin and a good starting point. Or, (and I just thought of this, is this info primarily just for pump users?
