well from my opinion, I would say that you don't need to calculate carb daily. In diabetes what matters most is the regularity of food and moderate amount of exercise. Exercise daily, it will increase the sensitivity of insulin and thereby help in control of your daibetes

It depends on your diet and exercise. Carbs are In Cheeses milks yogurts... If you are eating for diabetes. An old fashioned diet where you eat healthy works. Cut out breads and potatoes. Instead

Eat oatmeal and brown rice, instead of ice cream you can do frozen yogurt with fruit on it.

Cut out/ down in processed foods. Your body already has a problem digesting and stuff so making it easier on your body helps... As well as maxing out your water intake. I can't stress that one enough.
