What were your blood glucose figures on diagnosis? What is your current food intake like?

5.9 glucose

7.6 Hb1ac

Have cut down on carbs and try to avoid added sugar foods. Portion size and healthy snacking has been my main change. It is early days. Only actually told of my diagnosis last week. Originally nurse told me I was prediabetic but doc changed it.

Eat home made Almond flour bread and flaxseed bread. They will not spike your blood sugar. All traditional breads will give significant rise in blood sugar. Follow the link below for more information on blood sugar rise for various breads:
