Paying Attention To Carbohydrate Intake Is Important For Everyone

Although it is generally a person with diabetes who needs to count carbohydrate intake, I think it becomes more important especially as we age to pay attention to how many carbs we are eating. It becomes even more important if we are overweight. The older we get and the heavier we get, the higher the risk for developing diabetes becomes; also, if you have a family history you should pay attention to carbohydrate intake even if so far your blood glucose levels are normal. Why not change behavior before you are diagnosed as a diabetic?
