I am just starting this journey into diabetes. I had some blood work done and the results showed my non-fasting # was 191 and they also found I had a fatty liver. My doctor told me to diet and exercise and see him in 3 months. I went and bought a meter and have been taking my own readings. Some days are pretty good. My waking number is anywhere from 110-130 and after I eat anywhere from 150-190. I know I need to see a nutritionist so I will know what to eat but is there a quick way to drop your glucose when it does get a little high? I heard you should exercise after eating and that would help. Although I am not familiar with what to eat yet I am trying to educate myself on it. Is there a book or something that would tell me exactly what to eat? So far I have just confused myself. Help!

Hello Harlen this works well w/people w/high blood pressure also. Add to that step away from salt & sweets. Sweets has alot of salt in them which harms just about eveyone. Before you know it you will have got letgo of the access weight & helped your body concerning other health problems. Stay focused prayed up & walk tall.

Cut back on your carbs, eat more salads, beans, oatmeal, fish, green vegetables ( especially leafy vegs). Sorry, there is no quick way to reduce your glucose that I know of: except insulin, but exercise will help, also it is better to eat smaller meals and eat a couple of healthy snacks in between

Thank you so much. I think that was my problem to begin with I use to not eat except once a day and I know that is bad for me.
