Carbohydrate counting is the skill of matching your mealtime insulin to the amount of carbohydrates in your food. It is an effective way of helping blood glucose control and providing greater flexibility in your diet and lifestyle.

You should always have the support and guidance of your healthcare team with carbohydrate counting and insulin adjusting. The topic list (to the right) will give you an idea of all the information covered in this course.

This course:

Person icon

Is only for people using either an insulin pump or multiple daily injections (MDI)/ basal-bolus short-acting insulin with meals and long-acting insulin once/twice a day. Most people who carbohydrate count have Type 1 diabetes.

Will take no more than 2 hours to complete

Can be completed at your own pace and doesn’t have to be in one sitting

Occasionally carb-counting will be recommended for people with type 2 diabetes using basal-bolus insulin. If your diabetes is not treated by insulin, this course is not suitable for you. If you are not sure, then please check with your health care team

We hope to help you feel confident in managing your diabetes and support you in making decisions that result in the best possible health outcomes for you. Please note that all comments left on the forum are moderated.

    Your certificate should be on the homepage of the Carb Counting course – there’s a banner under the picture that tells you that you’ve earned your certificate and a button to download it. I’ll also email it to you just to make sure you get it, Kirsten πŸ™‚

    Hello, great course, but I can’t seem to get to 100% on the homepage even though I have done 100% on all the sections. Is there something I am missing please? I have watched all the videos and completed all quizzes with 100% accuracy, plus looked at all links (though some don’t work) – what haven’t I done?
    Many thanks!
