I have a 5.9 A1C was wondering if low carb bread would help with this problem. When your counting carbs is the total or net carbs the number your looking for. I like bread I found some bread with 2 net carbs. Does anyone have any suggestions on good salad dressings im really trying to avoid type 2 if I can turn this around.

Hi Joey. It all comes down to how your blood sugar behaves with the food you eat but you have to test before and a couple of hours after eating to know what the impact of the food is.

If you're active during the day, then eating the low-carb bread with some good protein and some food with a lot of fiber (salad, etc.) might be fine for you.

When reading the package label, you look at the total carbs. There is some belief that high fiber content can lessen the effects on blood sugar. This may be an individual effect, so the only way you'll know is by testing, as I wrote.

Bottled or prepared salad dressings frequently have sugar added, so always read the ingredients. Don't buy dressing that has sugar, honey, HFCS, or any sugar. The best way to know what's in the dressing is to make your own. Mix any oil that you like with lemon juice or vinegar, salt, pepper and whatever herbs you like. Keep it in the fridge if you don't use it up in one sitting.

I use apple cider vinegar as a dressing. Scientific studies show it helps control blood sugar. I use the one which has the mother. It is more expensive but it is has the probiotics which are good for your health. I also use salsa salad dressing.
