Hello Tina, I am including an URL from Mayo Clinic that offers some explanations that may help you. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/diabetes/AN0.... The article is written by an M.D. who is an endocrinologist. Your physician at home should be able to send you to a nutritionist or DME who can help you with food choices better than he or she can. All of us here have your back and can tell you what works for us. But for now, becoming a vegetarian can be a positive thing.
Have a cyber hug and a beautiful bouquet of fall colored flowers. (Put that imagination to work.) LOL Gracie
