I am a newbie to the board,I have had diabetes ,type "2 for 14 years, now take insulin,lantus and novorapid. I also take metaformin , I am struggling with my diabetes,am very confused how much and what kind of carbs I should be having and how many calories.My diabetes has been getting less controlled, I started off diet controlled, then tablets now I have insulin and tablets and all the while I have weight gain.Every time I see my diabetic nurse they increase whatever medication or insulin dose I am on and I still feel rough and very tired. I suppose I have got very depressed and in denial, I have also got heart disease which means I cant exercise very well,(how much exercise should i be taking daily?) and I do not work due to the health issues.I also am on slimvasatin for my cholestrol. I am finding the longer I am a diabetic the more depressed and confused about it all I am becoming.I joined the board hoping that I would get advice from fellow diabetics, and some kind of guidance to put me on the path to better health. I have bought a low carb book and diet plate and am even more confused as some of the things in the book other people say you should not eat.Please advise me what is a good low carb breakfast and what I should be eating?Thank you.
