"You take enough insulin to cover it" (:51)
Blake, age 48, eats a fairly consistent diet to limit the amount of insulin he needs, but he still likes desserts.
People with type 2 diabetes who take insulin just before eating typically count the carbohydrates
in their meal and take the right amount of insulin to match the carbs. Blake, 48, tends to eat a healthy diet with measured amounts of carbohydrates so that he doesn’t have to take a lot of insulin. In general, he takes two to three units of insulin, depending on what he's going to eat. Once in a while he splurges on a chocolate dessert and takes enough insulin to compensate for the extra carbohydrates.
