I heard last week that eating three pickles a day will help your body use the insulin better and keep levels down. Have any of you heard of this or any other foods that might have the same affect?

When first diagnosed I ate about 2 quarts of sliced dill pickles a week. I even drank the juice out of the jar when the pickles were gone. My A1C went from 14.1 to 5.9 in about 4 months. My blood sugar readings went from the 300 plus to almost normal numbers in about 6 weeks. I also was eating broccoli and or cauliflower everyday along with coleslaw made without sugar. After several months I started to use splenda in the coleslaw and it made it taste a lot better. I also started to drink at least 8 glasses of water and started to eat a salad with my supper every day. At first I only ate chicken breast or fish but now eat beef and pork in limited amounts and meat doesn’t spike your blood sugar. Just keep serving sizes to 2-4 oz.

Good luck

If you don't mind, please let me know what your Doctor said about this. Your story is remarkable.
Thanks. Christy

I have not heard of that, but cucumbers are very good for lowering our levels and vinegar is also helpful, so maybe the combination will work.
