How to use SureCount

CARBOHYDRATE FOODS have the greatest impact on blood sugar level. Carbohydrates — “carbs” — are broken down into glucose. So if you eat too much of them, your blood sugar level may rise to levels that are unhealthy.

People who have been diagnosed with prediabetes or diabetes need to keep their blood glucose in a targeted range by managing the amount of carbs they eat throughout the day.

This “carb counting” is an important way to account for the amount of carbohydrates eaten during a meal or snack. Carb counting will help regulate blood glucose levels. The goal is to keep blood glucose at healthy and normal levels.

1 serving of carbohydrate = 15 grams of carbohydrate.

As a general rule of thumb, women should eat about 3-4 carbohydrate servings (45-60 grams of carbohydrate) and men generally should consume about 4-5 carbohydrate servings (60 to 75 grams of carbohydrate) at each meal.  A snack should be 1-2 carbohydrate servings. See a health care professional, such as a dietician who specializes in diabetes education, to get the most accurate serving size for you.

Carb counting involves eating a well-balanced diet that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy products. Proteins in the meat group (such as fish, chicken, beef) do not directly affect blood glucose levels.

If you have been diagnosed as diabetic, or pre-diabetic, it is empowering to know that the condition can often be managed with a proper diet. SureCount is a useful tool to help patients know exactly how many grams of carbohydrates are in the foods they probably already eat. It is durable, portable and easy to use — I would have found it very helpful when I had gestational diabetes years ago!

As a holistic health coach, I encourage my clients to take their health into their own hands by implementing gradual, enjoyable lifestyle changes to avoid going on medications. SureCount is a really helpful way to help diabetics do just that.
