My son eats an extreme amount of food. He is 13 and almost 6' tall. We have been having trouble with his bg so the nurse wants us to go 3-4 hours between meals to get a baseline for him. He is going to be crazy hungry and I have a question about free foods. I've always thought that most veggies are free but if I look up green beans, bell peppers, etc they all have 4-5 carbs for a small serving. Since his ratio is 1:5 in the morning and 1:8 the rest of the day it looks like he will barely be able to eat anything except meat and cheese. Can we disregard the carbs in low GI veggies or only have one small serving of veggie? Also, for free foods, can he have the 5g worth every hour, every two, etc? We are starting this in the morning and I know I won't be able to get a return call from the nurse until the afternoon so I'm counting on the experts her to help me out. This forum is an incredible resource!
