    By our accident I found recently I had heart calcification . I’m hearing that Oates is not good for this condition along with sugar to stabilise the condition .

    How being a diabetic can I drop oatcakes as it’s my main intake of carbs . Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated ?

    Why do you want to take carbs? Quite a few on the forums have very few carbs if not as close to zero as possible and are managing well.

    I have never eaten then so cannot say.

    My intake of carbs is around 100 grams per day.

    I use flax seed in baking once in a while, but as we don't need carbs I select the ones I eat carefully, low carb tasty and colourful is what I pick usually - fresh veges and salad stuff.

    I eat flax seed and chia seed for fibre and for the oils. They don't raise my bg much, if at all

    I add seeds to my salads, so have them almost daily. Ground Linseed are a good source of vitamin D (I grind them myself so they don't go rancid). Chia seeds, Pumpkin seeds, Sunflower seeds are also good (for me at least).

    @Rog Did you have a CAC test? They say that it isn't too big a problem if the number is high but stable - only a big problem if it is increasing annually.
    Do you follow Ivor Cummins (the FatEmperor)? I trust him regarding Fats, Carbs and Cholesterol, but not quite so sure about his views on Coronavirus.
