Like "Barbara--This is about 31/2 weeks late--but I just recently joined diabetic connect. I read your letter, and I also think you have too many carb allotments. I was diagnosed in January with type 2 diabetes, and a diabetic educator put me on 3carbs per meal and 1 carb or less for each snack, plus at least 30 minutes per day exercise (walking). She also wanted me to lose 10 pounds (which I have) and have brought my A1c from 6.5 to 6.2. I am not on any diabetes medicine."
