And I am lactose intolerant.  I am really confused over what I can and can not eat. Everything seems to make my glucose elevate

At first, trying to find appropriate diabetics foods can be confusing but in actuality it's not. Do a Google search on the Glycemic Index, [GI]. In short, [I'm borrowing from another web site], 'the glycemic index of food is a ranking of foods based on their immediate effect on blood glucose [sugar] levels. Carbohydrate foods that breakdown quickly during digestion have the highest glycemic indexes. Their blood sugar response is fast and high. Carbohydrates that breakdown slowly, releasing glucose gradually into the blood stream, have low glycemic indexes. Low GI means a smaller rise in glucose levels.'

Carbohydrates, besides sugar, wreak havoc on type 2 diabetics. But not all do as we do need some carbs for energy. Google simple carbs vs complex carbs to make the GI easier to understand.

Avoid man made prepared packaged and canned foods. If you must eat them read the ingredient label carefully. Carb sugar is listed in grams. Every 7 grams equals one heaping Tablespoon of refined sugar. Eat more fish, vegies, poultry and lean meats. Eat fruit, fruit juices, and fruit smoothies with other foods to slow the absorption of fructose [fruit sugar].
