I failed a 3 hour glucose test, went to the counceling apt with the nurse and the dietition. Tried following the meal plan they gave me but my sugars spike every time I try to follow the meal plan. In my testing of different foods it seems to be the carbs (breads, pasta's etc) that are spiking me. Why would the dietition constantly be on me about eating carbs if they are obviously the main thing my system can't handle? Most of the carbs I had tried that first week I made sure were whole grain and as good for me as i could find. I have taken all processed sugars out of my diet, as well as a few other things. I refuse to ingest any artificial sweeteners like splenda and sweet n low due to the aspertame (sp) in them. The only sweeteners that I have been using and haven't been priking my sugars are honey (minimal) and Stevia Raw. My glucose levels don't spike with any amount of fruits, veggies, or meats. Just seems to be mostly grain based foods and anything with regular sugar or the corn syrup. I have added cinnamon and fenugreek suppliments to my diet.
So my question is if im maintaining my weight, keeping my levels where they should be ideally, my keoates (? SP) that I check before breakfast when I wake up every day have been perfect. Then why would the dr want to force me onto medication just so I can eat grain based foods for the next 9 weeks? Being that they are the ONLY thing that spikes my sugars.
