My husband has been a type two diabetic for last decade or more. He pretty much gave up on checking his glucose or taking meds for about a year. When we met he always complained about being tired.
We got married in September and I took him to a doc. His sugar was at 500. The doctor immediately put him on insulin and meds for blood pressure and cholesterol. He was also recommended to see a dietician.
Right now he eats home cooked meals. And being a picky eater I can't have him eat all veggies but we are working on it. The doctor told us about this special healthy life bread which only have 35 calories per slice. Each slice of bread is a carb. Cheese, or anything else he consumes is a carb too and he is only allowed 17 carbs a day. Dream fields pasta also has less carbs and sugar which is great for diabetics. I see a few people have written about how they crave pasta or other foods. I usually make him tuna sandwich or turkey for breakfast. I also got him low sugar ketchup. And low sugar jelly and low sodium peanut butter for pbj sandwiches.
So far he is doing great!!! I hope this helps and if anyone else has any insights I'm all ears!!!
