I dont know what "restricted diet" your on but for diabetics it is carbohydrates that raise BG. not the fat that most Md's want to put us on.

ALL carbs raise BG  whole wheat will raise BG so will rice ,pasts, potato and most fruit.  
In fact fruit has a double whammy as fructose does the same damage as glucose BUT our meters dont read fructose.   So if you eat an orange and your BGmeter says your BG rose only by 20 PTs (US)  you have to factor in that fructose is also up in your Blood doing damage.

Hi and thanks for using the forum.

Congratulations it sounds like all your hard work is moving your blood sugar in the right direction. While you have shown improvement, your blood sugar is still elevated. Diabetes can often be managed with lifestyle changes, but you want to continue to track your blood sugar to make sure it continues to improve.  It is important to remember that elevated blood sugar can cause damage to your kidneys and other organ systems. That is why it is so important to get your levels down.
Discuss your success with your doctor, and hopefuly the two of you can come up with a plan of care that will work for you.

Good luck
Cathy
