Has your doctor diagonosed diabeties? I am really suprised that he didn't tell you how to lower your sugars. I drastically reduced my carb intake when I was diagnosed. And for a period of time also cut out the sweets. And I started walking everyday. You should become buddies with fresh fruits and veggies. And I know alot of people on here love to snack on mixed nuts. As do I. Yumm-o! It may take a little time to bring your sugars down but you can do it. We are all here to help.

I agree with all of the above comments. But your MD should of suggest you talk to a dietitian about Diabetic diet, and maybe going to a diabetic class right from the start. It could help you with the basic fundamental of being a diabetic…Debe

Excercise, cut out your sugar intake, such as candy, etc. Use sugar substitutes such as splenda. Ask your doctor about a diet to go by.

Did the doctor not tell you what to do? But cut out alot of your high carb foods,like Junk foods, get back to veggies, salads, fruits. Exercise more. Read some of the discussions on here for newly diagnosed people and follow some of their tips and advice. Hope some of that helped.
