Q: Carbohydrates in a slice of pizza?

I am on a Medtronic MiniMed 715 insulin pump I need to program in how many carbs are in 2 slices of NY, i.e. made and baked, pepperoni and extra cheese pizza? Thanks!

As a person with diabetes, and on an insulin pump, maybe you should consider only one slice of pizza (if NY style, that's about a 1/4 of a pie) and forgo the pepperoni and extra cheese?

I am also a diabetic on an insulin pump ... i have been for 15 yrs. now, and my mother has always told me to not let my diabetes stop me from doing anything.  I eat pizza often, it's something i love... i'm not going to stop b/c i have diabetes.  o and by the way i'm 26 years old  not overweight  my cholesterol is perfect and my HbA1c is 4.8    o and my husband is also type 1 on a pump and we have a beautiful 2 yr old... should we have not had her bc were both diabetics??  i dont mean to be crass, but as long as you arent lazy and take care of yourself diabetes cant win and you should b able to do whatever you want.

Wow, an ignoramus with ZERO knowledge on the subject and a mouthy response. What your dim intelect fails to understand is that both pepperoni and cheese contain no carbohydrates and are usually considered "free" foods by Type 1 D's and don't require coverage with insulin. Consider yourself lucky you weren't in my presence when you spewed that nonsense. Unfortunately this post is old enough that you won't see this response. Reply

Wow, what an uninformed, judgmental person you seem to be.  The ignorance in your post is a clear indication- never mind the user name.

There are approximately 40 carbs in each slice of pizza.  Your particular pizza may be slightly higher because NY style pizza has thicker crusts

I am a diabetic and did not know untill my Dr. called and told me my sugar was 586 and that I needed to go to the ER right away. It has been a few weeks now and Iam watching my carbs and also taking long walks every night, I have cut many things from my diet and i have lost 10 lbs. I feel great, i also eat pizza as well, but only have 2 slices and not 4 or 5 like I use 2.. watching how many carbs you eat will help you feel much better.... hope this was helpful...2 slices of pep. pizza is like 38g of carbs
