i am been diganosed for six years. mostly i cook from scratch and u are right about diet.
eat lots of fish and chicken and veg. i have converted many recipes to make them more diabetic friendly. have about ten cook books for diabetics.
i have a sugar free banana bread that i developed, it's better than regular.
even found a sugarless sugar cookie recipte that is very good.
so i really do for the most part , eat low carb and healthy.just get stubborn once in a while and eat junk.
these high sugar test is a recent thing. dr took me off the med that was supposed to be bad for your heart. he did not put me on anything else to help insulin work better. that is one of reasons i am going to see a new dr. this guy either doesn't know or is careless. got me hooked on morphine when i had a broken foot.
thanks for your concern and you are so right.
