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!
