Petition Make it a legal requirement for restaurants to add carbohydrate content to menus
The carbohydrate content of food is required by diabetics dependant on insulin in order to calculate the correct amount of insulin to inject. The incorrect amount can result in low/high blood sugar which can make them very unwell and require medical help.
Myself and other diabetics I know have requested this information from various restaurants personally many times over the years but we are always told they’ll look into it, but no changes are made.
I would like the Government to make this mandatory as all too often diabetes is misunderstood and isn’t considered a serious condition. If people are able to take care of their diabetes using this small piece of information, it should lead to less diabetic complications and hospital admittances.
