Another great site and is a sister site to here
plus check out Amys to. all 3 work very well together and really fill in where the other lets off.
Diabetic secrets breaks down food for us in the book and has some very very helpful topics.
The book has helped me get into my 90s on my sugar, and working to go to 80s woot!
Also it is written by one of our folks from this site, his name is Toma.
Great source of information and he is working very very hard to help us all.
Amy is another gem, you must check out her site and become a member there too.
So combine these 3 ites and your set!!!!

I am new to all this myself. My Dr hasn't called me 'diabetic' but I'm sure I am. She took the 2 hr glucose tolerance test and said that my glucose rose but it came right back down so she hasn't given me any meds, no dietician advice, kinda on my own.
I found the Mayo Clinic and actually feel I'm getting good information rather then an 'opinion'. I've been terribly confused by opinions and stuff on the web and I find May Clinic to be pretty good and up front.
Diabetes is not one size fits all I'm learning.
Gosh I'm 59 years old and have eaten whatever I've wanted to for many years now it's hard to comprehend that the food I've enjoyed could kill me! lol.
I can eat the same thing, as in left overs two days in a row and be low one time and high the next. So it really confuses me on the food choices. Ugh!

This link is going into my favorites. There is a lot of great information in there. I read 4-5 articles already. One just kind of leads to another. There are also places where you can leave comments and ask questions. Very nice.

Thanks for the link. I was trained as a physical therapist at the Clinic in Rochester…many, many years ago. I didn't have a URL for it 'til now. They have good info on many many subjects. Thanks again Elfin
