Dr Pimple Popper New Season 4 2020 : Watch What Happened.
I’m BACK! I wrote a post earlier tonight that I deleted and now I’m coming back to re-address this topic. (While I watch Dr. Pimple Popper) My first post talked about a debate I had this week in a diabetes group. A mom, who had typically fed her child a higher carb diet, was trying a new keto brownie mix.
She posted a photo of the label of this new product and here was the breakdown: One brownie had 16 total carbs – 8 of the carbs were fiber and 8 were sugar alcohols. This mom then asked the group how to dose for this new treat.
Many people replied and said to dose for total carbs. Let’s pretend this child is on a 1:8 carb ratio and the mom gave the child 2 units of insulin for a low carb brownie. WHOA WHOA WHOA. That’s a much bigger dose than the half a unit that would be needed to cover 4 net carbs, which is how we would dose for a low carb brownie.
(Now, I know many of you have done your own homework. Maybe you always need to dose for total carbs regardless of fiber or sugar alcohols. If that works for you, awesome.) But, for a small child to experiment with a new low carb product, I COMPLETELY stand behind my words in the original post. Many/most people need to subtract the fiber and around half of the sugar alcohols. Does this make sense?
This is yet another topic that requires too many disclaimers and too many details. If there’s a massive amount of fiber, maybe subtract only half. If the sweetener is allulose, it will show up as a high amount of carbs, but NONE of them affect blood sugar, etc. My message is one of safety and one that aligns with the law of small numbers. Start with a small dose. See how it works. If it’s not enough, dose more the next time. Take home message: Do your homework. Watch for fiber and sugar alcohols and be cautious when trying new products. River loved his low carb chili and sesame bagel tonight. Back to pimple popping. My zen for the evening.
