Dont know what im doing!
Josie, please don’t panic, I have posted some info on your other thread,
Can't see what type you are doing on my phone.
When were you diagnosed and when did you last eat?
Only diagnosed today type2. Had some crackers 3 hours ago.
Gp couldnt access my results as computers went down. Yesteday i was told my results were really high and i needed to go in for meds. Locum today just said diet and exercise. I dont feel great though
When I was diagnosed November 2017 I was in the high teens and 20s. Don't panic
It will take a while for your numbers to come down.
I didn't feel great at the time. I didn't realise how bad I did feel until I started to feel better.
Avoid insulin until you have had a chance to change your diet. My HbA1c was 122 and in 5 months I got it down to 35.
I won't pretend it was easy. It took me 4 months to break through carb addiction. I fell off the wagon many times. Once I had broken the addiction, it was a revelation. No hunger, no need to snack. The weight melted away.
I went keto almost straight away. Trying to keep under 20g carbs per day.
This may not be suitable for you, diabetes is highly personal, what works for one doesn't work for all.
You're not alone and you have found the best place on the internet for help and support.
crackers are made from wheat, which is high in starch.
Many things which come in packets are labelled with the carbohydrate content.
Hi i read somewhere about diabetes and to have a few crackers with cheese..i need to read more i think!
diabetes is an inability to deal with carbohydrates in the diet - a lucky type two can, just by being careful about what they eat, return to normal readings for blood glucose.
The old saying "you are what you eat" is another reason to avoid crackers. (Although nuts are alright)
I wrote a blog about my first 50 days post diagnosis - it is a steep learning curve...this may resonate with you. (click the link to access).

You have. It's a steep learning curve but definitely doable. Baby steps.
