it seams that no matter what I eat, my blood sugar goes up and I was put on insulin, which I really didn't want to do, but did it. I'm getting frustrated because diabetes education wants my fasting blood sugar to be 100 in the morning and the lowest it was gone is to 109. Help.

I found that drinking lots of water and eating lots of low carb vegetables helped lower my blood sugar fast. After being diagnosed I started to test before and 2 hours after each meal to determine how the foods I ate affected my blood sugar. After my numbers came down a lot I started testing 1 hour after eating and was able to fine-tune my diet even more. My A1C went from 14.1 to 5.9 in just a few months. My last 4 were all below 6.

By testing what I ate I found that I had to give up all bread and grain products, potatoes, pasta, rice and most foods that contained more than 5-6 net carbs per serving.

I write how I controlled my blood sugar on my website. I even talk about how and what I eat. Click on the link below. It may help or give you some ideas. Then again it might not. I figure it can’t hurt to at least try some things. This is what worked for me.
