  • The thing about avoiding sugar is basically a myth. . Table sugars do not raise your blood sugar any more than similar amounts of calories from starches that u eat everyday. Just make sure u don't eat alot of it. Pay attn to the labels. Did your doc give u the amount of carbs u r allowed to have per meal? Is your diabeties in control?

  • No I have to go to a low income clinic ( I'm thankful for) but, my doc I guess assumes I have all my info. No, it's not but, partly my own fault cause I cheat some with my foods. Its so hard but, I know I've got to do better.

  • Yup, that u do. Do know about all the very very nasty side effects of uncontrolled blood sugar? My DH mom passed away from diabeties complications.
