Like "I guess I am one of the radicals in our group. I will not follow any of the ADA guidelines. I have read some of their recipe books: and being a type 2 non insulin dependent means I have to cope with carbs on my own.I can't eat grains, pasta, rice etc. They do not seem to indicate that non insulin diabetics must control carb intake since we have to rely on our own bodies to maintain BG levels."
