exactly, bignick, i can only fondly remember cheese danish and banana flips and fudge and how they taste. i don't even take the time to gaze lovingly at their fine presentations. it is a warrior thing, you must drop those items that cause the problem and move on without looking back.

I love this. Makes me feel like a ninja samurai warrior, or Clint Eastwood.

Forgive the off-topic interruption, but the irony is just too great ....

Me too - until today! Five years, no danish, and this is the day you mention them, the day I had planned to make this after plucking a few things I wanted to try from our recipe section Leapt up and made them right after reading your post. Oh my. Unbelievable. The downside = portion control failure! They are amazing!

They are just two different stages of diabetes. Mainly Type 2 diabetes is a disease that happens when the body is not able to make or use insulin properly or Prediabetes is when a personís blood glucose levels are higher than normal.

Prediabetes means (going by the current studies) that you have lost a significant amount of basal cells already.

The cut-off for diabetes diagnosis, A1C>6.4 was arrived at because that is the point where ophthalmologists see a significant rise in diabetic retinopathy. You CAN get retinopathy before this because A1C does not account for spikes. Other studies indicate that wild swings cause damage. In addition, there are those very recent studies that indicate pre-diabetics also develop damage.

Yes so correct. We cannot cure our ailment. We must not go back to those free loading days. Portion control is key. I have experienced cutting out fructose and carbs but when portion size is high, the reading will go up...

I was diagnosed as 'pre' in 2013, my last two Dr. visits my A1C was 5.1 and was told I am not diabetic, but that is because of the way I choose to eat. If I eat something that is from the 'forbidden' foods my BG soars, I have been 299 and over 300. Stick to lower portions and things that keep your BG low. A high spike gets my attention ASAP.

The current tests of fasting blood glucose and A1C miss a lot of diabetics. That's why I harassed family members to test after eating a carb loaded meal. That DID get my uncle to go and have VA retest him, but other family members chose to live in denial.

We can still eat those awesome foods but in smaller portions. Then cut down some of the healthy stuff in its place. This is to ensure total calories and volume is under control. We gotta do this to keep on going. Total deprivation does not work in the long term.

Initially I made the big mistake of taking some of those sinful stuff AND at the same time maintain the volume of healthy stuff. The result was an INCREASE IN TOTAL CALORIES intake thus resulting in higher fasting readings.
