What scares me is that most research supports the concept that diabetes will cause numerous serious medical problems over time, if you do not control your blood sugar 24/7! Blindness, loss of fingers, toes, or the whole leg!

Not to mention kidney disease, liver disease, heart disease, etc. etc. Letting your sugar levels 'float' over 140 is like Russian Roulette!

From what I know this applies to Type 1, 1.5, and 2........

It is a damn scary disease and you cannot be cured! But in most cases it can be controlled by what you eat and meds.....

At least that is my 2 cents....worth

I see a rabbit trail opening up. We should stick to the topic of breakfast - but, a new thread about complications, etc., would be a good point of discussion.

Scroll down a bit on the home page and you'll find a couple articles that debunk the idea that people eat their way to being diabetic.
what an interesting web page. I found her newsfeed on f/b too! Thanks!

Please feel free to share a picture if you would like to do so!

Pretty much bacon (two strips thick bacon, fried) and eggs (2 large chicken, fried) for a total of 13.1 grams of carbs. Sometimes I vary it with steak instead of bacon and omelets instead of fried eggs.

Welcome....Contra

As diabetics many of us avoid any 'high carb' food. Curious why you would add potatoes 'for carbs'....

Not trying to be a 'smarty' by asking this...I really am curious!

Several http://www.diabetesforum.com/diabete...-crackers.html spread with bacon grease, topped with smoked gouda cheese* and breakfast sausage. Yumm. Followed by a side of cooked spinach with a bit of bacon grease and vinegar.

*Actually, I use a non-dairy cheese by Follow Your Heat which has a coconut oil base and is very good (I'm sensitive to cow's milk so usually use a cheese substitute).
