Thanks so much, Melissa. I've actually been doing that because they suspected celiac disease. I can handle a small amount of grits or oatmeal in the morning, which helps with my nausea and gets my sugar up some, but not during the day. I usually have soup for lunch and meat and vegetables for dinner. Salad has not been a big winner with me. Cottage cheese seems ok. I'm just a mess gi wise. I don't know why the oatmeal doesn't bother me like potatoes and bread do, guess because of the fiber and the colloidal part of it. Grits have been ok too, which really surprised me. I notice that sometimes when my food is not digested the glucophage tablet comes out whole and undigested. Prednisone has helped the most, maybe help me get it healed up. I don't want to give up my oatmeal or grits, though I prefer oatmeal, in the morning. I hope I don't have to. I'm not well enough in the morning to make myself anything any better and even diabetic meal replacements have been making me really sick, the sweeteners maybe. I will check out that site. There is no way I can quit the glucophage because of my liver, but I will have to find a way to take it better, maybe eat first instead of just after so the pill is not lying on my intestine. Thanks for the site info. I will have to check it out. How are you doing anyway? I haven't heard from you for a while...
