I am only 2 months ago diagnosed with Type 2 while in the hospital for a Deep Vein Thrombosis in my leg and clots in my lungs. My doctor has told me nothing about diabetes except it is critical I get my blood glucose levels down from the 295 at the hospital. I am not overweight with BMI of 22. I take Medformin 500 mg in the morning and before dinner. On my own, I eat only foods with low to low moderate Glycemic Loads. My blood glucose now averages in the high 120s. Sometimes I get a 101 or 107!
My question concerns all these diabetic "healthy" recipes that contain processed wheat flour, white bread, pasta noodles,white rice, chocolate, honey, brown sugar or super high calories. Is it REALLY OK to eat these things and maintain a decent blood glucose level?
