I am a newly diagnosed type 2 with no insurance :( I was admitted to the ER with blood sugar of 530 and sent home a day later as it went down to 340. They sent me home with information brochures about diabetes and an RX for metformin but I am so lost as what am I supposed to eat, I am losing weight because I am afraid to eat anything (maybe its good) but I'm losing too fast (not healthy) I am afraid to even go in my kitchen because I feel food will just make me get sick again :( I do understand the no sugar and low carb thing but when I go in my fridge, it seems like everything has carbs (sigh). Am I only supposed to eat salad from
Now on? I am even afraid to eat any red meat because of my heart disease risk now that I'm diabetic. I am so confused and I feel really bad because I don't cook for my family, I just make the hubby get them fast food :( and I will stay at home and just eat protein shakes, I just don't know how long I could do this diet, I need advice please on what a diabetic can eat. I am 36 and currently weigh 160. Thx!
