Hello Daniel and welcome to HealingWell. I understand the disbelief of diagnosis because I was very unhappy years ago when my blood tests all pointed to diabetes. However, in my case diabetes is in my mother's side of the family and it was only a matter of time. In fact, both my brother and sister have diabetes, too.
You need to understand that food and drink has a direct impact on blood sugar. Simply put, the more carbohydrates we eat, the higher our blood sugar will go. Carbs include: rice, potatoes, bread, any food made with flour or sugar. The best diet for diabetics would be: vegetables, leafy greens (lettuce, spinach, for example), proteins (any meat or fish), nuts, whole milk products in small amounts, some fruits like berries (again in small amounts), cheese.
For more information about
research, studies, etc. on blood sugar, please click on the link in my signature. The following website has many different 'rooms' dedicated to low carb issues: forum.lowcarber.org/
If you please write more about
yourself, I can give you more advice and information. Do you have any family members with diabetes? What food do you eat for meals?
