  • normal BS is 70-100mg. Watch your carb intake and your extra sugars.

  • Carbohydrates need to be counted. The nutritionist should give you a good number to stay under each day. You will also likely have to monitor your BS each day. Refined sugars and flours are carb nightmares. Eat whole grains. Most veggies aren't a problem..except corn. It is very hight carb..very little nutrition. Fruits are tricky because they can contain lots of natural sugars. Berrys...like raspberries and blackberries are great choices because they have lots of fiber too. Watermelon is a huge issue for me. Even a few small chunks shoot my BS way over 200, so I avoid it. It isn't as hard as it sounds.
