I have type 2 diabetes that is poorly controlled. I have no medical insurance and I am a single mother of two children aged 8 and 9. I was in the er yesterday and was told my A1C is 9.9 my blood glucose reading was 348. I am a total loss on what diet I should be on. And what foods are good and bad. I know carbs are bad and pasta and breads are a huge no no but that is all I know. I have been a diabetic for about 5 years and I am as clueless as when I was first diagnosed. I am on 1000 mg of Metphormin and 40 units of insulin everyday. I am supposed to be on 30 mgs of Actos but with the cost of $265. a rx I simply can not afford it and because I am not pregnant I can not get medical assistance in my state of KY. Can anyone help me with what foods to eat and which to avoid. I am clueless and scared to death! Thank you.
