I just got back from my Doctor's appointment today. After I had told my Dr. what I had done to bring my B/G down from 187 to 106 and have lost eight pounds. She (Dr) told me that I should write a book for her to show what can be done if one tries to help his/her health. She also said that this is what makes her feel good about being a doctor when she sees someone is doing something to help himself.
I explained to her that I have learned what foods cause my blood sugar level to increase by eating different foods and testing my sugar level and seeing either a moderate increase or drastic increase in my sugar readings. For example I ate crab meat,crackers, and cantalope. Following this meal my blood sugar was really elevated. The next day I ate cantalope and tested my blood sugar and learned that cantalope is full of sugar. Now tht I know what foood are not good for me it is easier to make good decisions regarding my health.
Going on insluin was never discussed. Her last statement was just keep doing what you are doing. This is GREAT News.
