Carb Manager offers three ways to track carbs:
- Total Carbs - All carbs, including fiber and sugar alcohols.
- Net Carbs - Total carbs minus fiber and sugar alcohols (used by most low carb dieters).
- Diabetes Carbs - Total carbs minus fiber and half of the sugar alcohols.
Diabetes Carbs are a more precise estimate of the carbs that actually affect glucose. Tracking diabetes carbs is typically recommended for users who are tracking carbs for diabetes management.
To enable tracking for diabetes carbs, first select Settings from the main (left) navigation menu.
Select the Settings tab in the top navigation menu. Then, under Carbs to Track, select Diabetes Carbs.
All carbs tracked throughout the app will now be tracked as "diabetes carbs".
