Welcome to the forum and the big D

Your diabetic, that means your pancreas no longer controls your Blood Sugar Levels BG, So…You need to control your BG.

It can be done
your TOOLS

Pills and or insulin
exercise
Food

Read the Nutrition labels on food packages.
you are interested in the TOTAL Carbohydrates.
get to know the Glycemic index of foods.
http://www.mendosa.com/gilists.htm



Food
All foods with carbohydrates (carbs) Raises BG  
especially fast acting carbs are
almost anything white. White bread, potato, rice, sugar, pasta, corn (corn meal, corn flower, corn chips tacos  …)
AND HFCT High Fructose corn syrup
eating a bowl of mashed potato is worse for your BG than eating bowl of sugar.  Your body metabolizes potato faster than sugar  

Protein, fiber and fat
slows down the rise of BG.

meds (pills and insulin)
lower BS

exercise
lowers BSL



Basically those are the tools you have, use them well and you will have a long Happy life.

To learn HOW THIS ALL AFFECTS YOU… test you BG before you eat, test 1 hour after you eat, this gives you your BG spike for the food.  Test 2 hours after you eat your BG should be going down.  test before exercise test after exercise.

Everybody is affected differently by carbs and by different foods.  So you need to test to find out how You react to different foods, this is called “eating to your meter… do it.


When you test use the side of your finger tip, much less pain
