How many points will 5 grams of carbohydrate raise your blood sugar?
Yes, I do realize it probably varies from person to person and what kind of food you are eating (glycemic index). I'm trying to explain to someone why they can not eat all of their allowed carbohydrates in one large meal a day.

Mr. Babu
Carb 1 gm have 4 calories, fat,oildhave 9 calories in one gram, meat has five calories. average person in day need about 2000 to 2200 calories a day, depending how active the person is.

hi t
As you suggest this question cannot be answered precisely or even imprecisely. It is highly dependent on individual physiology. Your previous responder using a weight based formula is roughly generally in the right direction but it is not possible to give so precise an answer. In general a person with diabetes will have less rise in blood glucose if he or she eats a smaller quantity of carbohydrate. Most experts would agree that it is best to divide allotted daily carbohydrates into smaller amounts more frequently through the day in order to minimize elevated blood glucose which is the key to preventing diabetic complications.

you were right to point out that you do know it can vary, otherwise you would of gotten a million poeple telling you. Anyway I am a type 1 and i can remember my diabetes educator that you should figure apx. 20 points for every 5 grams.


the answers you seek are here
1 gram of carbohydrate will raise blood sugar by about

o 3 points (mg/dL) in people who weigh ~200 lb

o 4 points in people who weigh ~150 lb

o 5 points in people who weigh ~100 lb
