From Owings Mills, Maryland, USA:
My husband, diagnosed with typeá1 diabetes 15 months ago, is using an insulin pump with carbohydrate counting and is in excellent control with no problems, but when we visited his family, his mother seemed to be concerned that he is taking too much insulin because he took insulin to cover cake, pie, etc. I have already explained that eating sweets are okay, but now she she has heard that it is not good for you to take too much insulin and seems to think the additional amount of insulin required to cover sweets is going to amount to too much. What is you opinion of taking extra insulin to cover sweets?
