carb question for a diabetes 2 person

Hi everyone. This is my first post here so hope it is ok I am asking this question in this forum.

I have been diagnosed with Diabetes 2 but the numbers are so low yet that I do not have to take any meds, for which I am very grateful.

I have been to a diabetes educator and a dietician. I thought the educator was great but was not impressed with the educator. I felt that she just gave me the 'routine' answers and didn't really listen to my questions. So I am bringing one of them here.

Everything that I have read gives a specific number for counting carbs but I struggle with this. So much medical information bases their numbers on little 150lb people not on 250lb people. So, with that said, would the carb numbers be different if a person is 6 feet tall and over 250 pounds?

thanks for any help you can give me.
