that depends on what meds you are on. A male should eat 3 meals a day, every 4-5 hours with 60-75 grams of carbs. and 2 snacks of 15-30 grams of carbs. You want to have a lean protien with all meals and snacks. If your sugar is high and it is time to eat you still have to eat just watch your carbs go to the lower end. Talk to your doctor and he/she will set you up with a nutritionist. They really do help. Keep a food diary to see what you are eating. good luck

Heather is right, you do need to eat. With your meds and changes in your diet…watching carb intake and portion size, your blood sugars should begin to come back into a more normal range.
