1 CDA Professional Conference October 4 Making Carbs Count: Advanced Carbohydrate Counting for Intensive Diabetes Management Case Study #1 Guy is a pleasant 3 year old male who has had type 1 diabetes for years. Last year he came to see you to learn about basic carbohydrate counting. He has been carbohydrate counting and trying to follow a consistent carbohydrate meal plan since that time. Guy is coming to learn advanced carbohydrate counting skills because he wants to improve his glycemic control and have a more flexible lifestyle. Ht: 6 (183 cm) Wt: 183 lbs. (83 kg) BMI = 4.8 Guy s insulin: u intermediate-acting insulin bid 8 u -acting insulin with meals Total daily dose (TDD) = 48 u/day Guy s target blood glucose levels: ac meals 4-7 mmol/l hr pc meals 5-1 mmol/l Guy s latest HbA1C = 7.9 Guy brings detailed food records to his appointment. Questions/Problems 1) Examine Guy s initial food records of August 19, and 1. What are the first steps that should be taken in teaching Guy advanced carbohydrate counting? (5 min) Calculating insulin:carb ratios ) Calculate Guy s insulin:carb ratio using all 3 methods. (6 min) a) Method 1: Pattern Management for any meals that are applicable (i.e. when # units of insulin taken seem to give appropriate control for grams of carbohydrate eaten) b) Method : 5 TDD c) Method 3: TDD basal insulin requirement = bolus requirement Average CHO eaten/day bolus requirement = insulin:carb - 1 -

2 CDA Professional Conference October 4 Case Study #: Determining insulin to carb ratio using Pattern Management and carb choices Samantha is Guy s supervisor at work (weight 6 lbs/118 kg; math reluctant ). She has type diabetes, is on an insulin pump and prefers to work in carbohydrate choices. (1 carb choice = 15 g carbohydrate) 3) Examine Samantha s food record. Calculate her insulin:carb choice ratio at all meals. ( min) Calculating Insulin Sensitivity Factors (ISF) 1 TDD for R/A (-acting) insulin OR 85 TDD for R(Regular) insulin or insulin-resistant individuals 4) Calculate Guy s ISF from his food records. (1 min) Using ISF to calculate a supplemental dose (Current BG goal BG) ISF = supplemental dose 5) Guy s BG before lunch is 1. mmol/l but his pre-meal target is 6 mmol/l. If his ISF is, what is his supplemental dose at lunch? (1 min) Applying the Principles 6) Using the following information and the food lists provided, calculate Guy s lunch time insulin dose. (5 min) Pre-meal target BG = 6 mmol/l insulin:carb ratio = 1 ISF = # grams of carbs Ham & cheese sandwich :3 ml juice box (orange) ml strawberry yogurt medium apple 5 g bag chips 7) Examine Guy s follow-up food record. Assess it for how well Guy has applied the information he has been taught. What changes can you find? ( min) - -
