I've only tried the cinnamon from the supermarket for about 2
months. The amount was 2 teaspoons a day on cereal, apples,
toast, etc. I tried it in drinks but it wouldn't mix properly.

I didn't see any noticeable differences in my blood sugar tests.
I was then told that it may only work on some Type 2's, depending
on their systems.

I agree. I don't think those crumb coatings for meats and
vegetables are good for anyone.

Some common foods that raise my sugar levels a fair amount
are oranges/tangerines/clementines, cherries, ripe bananas,
dried fruits, prunes, dates, pasta/sauce, chinese food(a lot),
cream soups, corn, Miracle Whip, creamy salad dressings, etc.

I still do eat these foods weekly but I only eat small amounts
to get the various minerals and vitamins and I take the correct
amount of Insulin to cover them. Chinese food, is hard to get
the correct dose since they don't seem to want to tell you the
amount of carbs in the different foods. Plus I imagine the
amounts differ from week to week. That we only usually have
once a month.

Sorry, I got talking about your other subjects,,,,,,but you
seriously need to start taking Insulin if you are a Type 1 or
oral meds., if you are a Type 2. Those numbers are too high.
You could be even higher sometimes but don't realize it since
you probably don't test often enough.

Testing 8 times a day is appropriate since you are a Newbie to
Diabetes checking out what foods bother your blood sugar levels.
I am not a Newbie but I usually still test 7-9 times a day.

You need Insulin because you said that you are a Type 1(in honeymoon
phase or not)unless you have been rediagnosed again.

For me diabetes is a bad reaction to certain foodstuffs.
If i cut them out of my diet alltogether,i am healthy.
Hmmm, interesting way of putting it and in a way true. But that is
because you are lacking proper usage of or proper amounts of Insulin
in your system. Otherwise, you could eat all foods without your sugars
