generally, you will of course have to test your blood, take insulin at each meal, watch what you eat. A lot depends on your activity level, i.e. if you are involved in sports, etc..

w/o knowing more details it is hard to say. I got diabetes in college 32yrs ago, and did not have any problems.

Depends on type insulin you require. Intermediate and long lasting Insulins (Nph is an example) usually require only 1 injection per 24 hour period. This means that Insulin and calories may be treated as constants and by matching the intake of calories to the release of the Insulin the individual is able to maintain a stable blood sugar in the 6.0 range, once the individual point of equilibrium is reached.
