As helpful as nutrition apps like Go Meals are, what I really want is carb vision, the ability to tell the number of carbs in any given food item just by looking at it. It’s like x-ray vision for people with diabetes.
After watching a number of super hero films and discussing this topic many times with friends, I’ve come up with the following list of ways to develop carb vision.
1: Get struck by lightning while checking my blood sugar
2: Fill my pump with radioactive insulin
3:Get struck by lightning while refilling my pump
4: Take a really really big injection of genetically engineered insulin/superman growth serum. Or maybe two.
5:Eat a radioactive sandwich
6: Get bitten by a radioactive nutritionist
What’s your diabetes super power?
