should the carbs in turnip be counted with your meal

turnips are actually high in the GI index, which means they will be processed in to glucose reasonably quickly, however they have a low glycaemic load, which account for carbs per serving, so as with most things, you will likely need to just test them out and make a decision from there......

was there a lot of turnip?

either way, a few more test with it should confirm if you need insulin........the amount of which will likely be unique to you.... Smile

a good helping of mashed turnip instead of potatoes and a bit of butter
possibly count it the next time and see what happens
