Like "Each of us is different. A diabetic education class and meeting with members of your diabetic support team. They will teach you about meal planning, Carbs per meal, exercise and so on. I good rule to start with is remove all white flour products from your diet-bread,potatoes,rice, pasta, crackers ect and replace with whole wheat. Follow whatever they tell you and ask questions . These programs teach one on one. Its based on weight,medical conditions,type of diabetes and other conditions. We all share a disease, but we are all different. Good luck. "
