Hi and thanks for using the forum.

You need to speak with your primary care physician so that you can receive some nutritional/dietary counseling about your diabetes.  If possible, meet with a diabetic educator who can help you establish a quality meal plan.  Eating just tuna will not drop your blood sugar levels.  You need to eat a well balanced diet.  YOu can also go on the American Diabetes Association website for some nutritional guidelines.  However, you need to speak with someone ASAP so that you can start to get your sugars under control and regular.  Good luck.
