Don't feel badly that you don't have full knowledge of a working diabetic food plan... I know certified, diploma'd nutritionists who don't get it yet!
Heck, I had this disease diagnosed over 10 years ago (tho I'd probably had it longer) and spent those 10 years with my head in the sand, taking my meds and trying to follow the American Diabetes Association guidelines... Ended up on three prescript
ions and INSULIN!
Had to run out of money for the drugs and have no insurance before I got desperate enough to go back to the drafting table and attack my high sugars at the source, the food I was putting in my mouth!
With the help of my more knowledgeable friends here on the forum I was able to bring my sugars down to 95-110 morning fasting on metformin and exercise alone. It's not difficult, just takes a little innovation and planning. Read back in the posts and you will see how we all do it with a low carb, nothing white but cauliflower, cave man food plan. It really works because it's the way your body was designed to process food.
