I am learning more and more that diabetics get conned at the stores. When you shop look at the labels. They have diabetic cereals and they have just store buy cereals. As I am looking for low carbs I new read all my labels and I found that in alot of diabetic foods the carbs are low but I find stuff that is cheaper and is lower in carbs then the diabetic brands. like Smart Milk. It has 14 gm of carbs and will cost you $3.49 for a quart and in 1% milk there is only 13 gms of carbs per 8 oz. Cereal too. A box of diabetic cereal is 3.39 and a box of heart to heart is just as good for you as the diabetic cereals and you get more and the price is just under $3.00. You should read all labels when you buy for a diabetic. Don't just rely on it saying made for diabetics and them buy it thinking you are getting something good for you when in realality you are paying more for something that you could have gotten cheaper and has the same stuff in it like low carbs. PROS AND CONS OF DIATETES. Don't get ripped off and read your labels.
