no haven't tried the fructose I thought that was like concentrated fruit sugars. Here's the thing, when I was pregnant I was going for the gestational diabetes test and because of my sugar issues I got sick on that syrup they gave me because it bottomed me out so bad, the lowest the meter reads is 40 and they couldn't get a reading on me. I retested with just grape and orange juice a week later and should have tested in the 120-150 because I ate just before the test too. I tested at 72. So even fruit juice is touchy with my sugar.

I know there are insulin inhibitors out there that you can take to keep your sugars in the normal range but I'm trying really hard not to take in any more meds I don't have to if it's something I can regulate in other ways. I really do hate taking pills. That's why I'm trying to figure this sugar thing out so I don't get too bad off. I wish they would send me to a nutritionist but none of my docs seem to thing I need it. I get so confused with whether I should be on high fiber or low fiber . . .no carbs or some ok carbs . . . .boiled or fresh veggies. . . . fruits or no fruits. . . .it gets overwhelming so fast. I try to stick to the few little things I eat now and not venture too far away eating only little bits of each thing at a time so if I do react it's small . . . .but I get bored with the same things day in and day out.

Can you have honey? Even if your docs don't think you need it, can you request that you would really like to see a nutritionist? I think that would be a good idea and may be really helpful and help to ease some of your stress over figuring out what's safe to eat.
