Hi Buena, I think I understand the situation better now. If testing is not possible, forget that. In that case, if you eat the best way you can for keeping the blood sugar 'normal' then that would be one less thing to worry about
. I'm not sure what you know or don't realize about
food and blood sugar so I'm just going to write some suggestions.Any food
made with flour will raise blood sugar. That includes bread, cereal, crackers. Sugar in any form: honey, molasses, agave will also raise blood sugar. Vegetables like potatoes, corn, carrots, yams will do that, too. In general, root vegetables are high in carbs so if you do eat any please don't eat a lot. Eating any of the following is fine: meat, cheese, nuts, eggs, leafy greens, and other veggies like: celery, zucchini, eggplant, mushrooms, all kinds of peppers, tomatoes (careful with the sauce), cucumbers. I'm sure there are other veggies but can't think off the top of my head.
Good snacks that you can put in baggies to take with you would be pieces of cheese, olives, celery, hard boiled egg, mixed nuts. Natural peanut butter is great on celery or smeared on pieces of dark chocolate. I buy the 72% dark chocolate. Cream cheese (the 1/3 fat package) is also good on celery.
I'm glad you posted. I hope you're doing well today. I know it's hard to change what you might have been eating but following what I've posted above will help you keep your blood sugar lower. One less thing to worry about
