Dr. Morgan is working with a real-life insulin dependent partner to experience what it means to live the life of a diabetic. Following is an uncensored interaction between Dr. Morgan and his partner as he navigates his way through carb counting.

 

Ben: How many carbs in this pizza and pasta?

Partner: I’ll go with 50 unless it’s thick crust

Ben: You better send the ambulance now. I bolus 9 units because of the thick crust

Partner: OMG, Start chugging juice! I will say we’ve all been there. Knowing you gave yourself too much insulin can set off a panic. Luckily I can suspend my pump fast enough when that happens.

Ben: I guess I’ll need to eat more pizza to make up for pumping too much insulin.

Debra the Dietician: Ben, you NO MORE PIZZA for you. Only eat if you’re hungry!
