smorgan wasn't laughing at you....it was the typo "bowels" instead of bowls.

No one here would laugh at you for any reason. We all remember the beginning when we didn't know what end was up and made food choices we thought were great only to learn that all the rules about "healthy" food had to be thrown out the window and we needed to start over. It takes time to figure it all out. Check out that site I posted for a good intro to low carb/high fat eating.

Not laughing at you, it was just a really funny typo. Like a common one when someone says, "I have cut crabs a lot, but my sugar is still high."

I refuse to cut crabs - or shrimp either.

No one is laughing at you Brand. We are here to help. Carbs, fruit, sugar, anything white will raise your BG level. I would think you will feel much better if you work on your baseline for now. That means cutting out all carbs, grains, breads, fruit, potatoes, rice, etc. Have a carb party and throw them all away. Keep an eye on the glib you may not need it any more. Once you get stable with minimum spikes you can then reintroduce carbs, testing as you go along to decide if its a keeper.

Thanks all! When I said I felt bad, it was because of the choice that I made for a new "Good breakfast choice." I know that we are all here to learn from each other. And the things that are said are meant in good health. I enjoy this sight and the information I get from each and everyone of you. I don't take things to heart if I did, I would not ask for your opinions. I know that you all have been through this and pretty much know what you are talking about so, I try and take in everything. That is the only way I can learn to do better. So thanks for the help. I will try and make better choices. I come here everyday to see if anyone is going through what I am going through and I do find someone who can shed light on certain situations.Believe me it helps.

I always like to use the car analogy. Far easier to come to a stop if you let off the gas before putting on the brakes.

It's always good to have you here, Tania . . . and we would never laugh because all of us have been there/done that, our own darn selves.

Do take a good hard look at the DietDoctor site posted by Barbara . . . sticking to this way-of-eating will get you on the right track right away.

Most of the advice we are given about eating a 'healthy' diet is devised for non-diabetic people. Being diabetic turns the whole issue upsidedown, whether our doctors and the ADA believe it or not. Because we diabetics are 'allergic' to carbs, it means that all those 'healthy' fruits & grains are killing us by the inch. Nothing is more toxic to us than high blood sugar, and carbs are what raises our blood sugar the most.

I am going to take another look at my habits. I think I need to look more into better eating for diabetics (like you stated) instead of just regular people that do not have our issues. This is why I love this site. You got people that have been through similar situations giving their opinion on what they did to make things better for our type of health. I try and go to this site everyday and see if the issues that I am having are reaching anyone else. I usually find the help I need

And it's really even more specific than that. There are plenty of fruits I can eat, but grapes are not among them. Earlier this week, I added a measly 8 grapes to my usual breakfast. Both days I ate grapes, my BS jumped from a fasting level in the 110s to the 170s two hours later. Yesterday i ate dragon fruit instead of grapes, and had just a nice, normal rise.

The most important things I've learned here are that a) the ADA diet is way too carb-heavy for me, and b) I will discover the diet I need by eating to my meter.

I have had dizziness since early 2008. Much testing was done, and the cause was found to be a combination of an increase in my blood pressure, and autonomic neuropathy. Dizziness can be caused by many things.
