Granny Foxglove's Rants

Published by foxglove in the blog foxglove's blog. Views: 98

After many years of being diabetic and not being particularly bothered about it I am now going to investigate the situation and hopefully set up a proper diet etc. The reason for this being that I have seen how this can affect people who haven't and the outcome.
First of all what is the best things to eat and how much?

My daily allowance =
Calories 1,200 Carbs 150 SatFat 13 Protein 60 Sodium 2,300 Fibre 21

I have to take into consideration the fact that I have just had a serious illness of heart failure when I was at deaths door for at least 48 hours in October 2017 and I am taking 7 different tablets which have caused a lot of allergic reactions.
I have also just lost one of my grandson's which is causing me a great deal of distress at the moment.
