My mother had type 1 diabetes and many of the complications that came with it so when I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about 2 years ago I was understandably intimidated or well honestly frightened about the whole thing (especially since I have a fear of needles). Luckily I am on oral meds (doctor just changed me to Glipizide). Over the recent months despite also being on Megace I've managed to drop 20 or 30 pounds but my sugars are still out of control and my doctor is concerned about the weight loss (even though I could stand to lose a lot more) because he thinks it is because my sugars are out of control.
My big problem is probably more common than I realize. I am a single woman with no kids or other family. So when it comes to cooking well… I generally don't do it because its just me. For me it's easier to get the prepared meals. Also I'm a carb addict I absolutely love my bagels and cream cheese, bread etc. Basically I need help with a diet idea/food plan. Everything I have found online says eggs for breakfast, salad, sandwich without bread and other ideas (I won't get into the eat tuna and rice idea)
I should mention that my problem is multi part…I am usually dashing out the door and don't have time to cook and I have a limited budget when it comes to shopping so buying fresh fruit and vegetables isn't always possible. Is this to complicated? Definitely to long. Anyway appreciate any help that can be offered.
