Hi Everyone... I've had type 2 diabetes for past 12 years and only just started using insulin this year (4 injections daily) as endocronoligist finally agreed to do further tests as to why oral meds not working... so now my pancreas needs help apparently. In addition to diabetes I've had ongoing infections of all sorts for past 4 years continually (been hospitalised several times)... and I've had a stomach that has been misbehaving for about as long. My GP & endocronoligist finally agreed I need to see a gastroenterologist. I'm now undergoing tests to figure out what is going on with my digestive system. After gastroscopy & colonoscopy ruled out anything sinister, I'm about to start the FODMAP diet in Jan11 where apparently I have to restrict foods with fructose for 8 weeks. Being diabetic I've looked at the list of foods that I can eat on this diet and it's pretty much ruled out most of the low GI food I'd normally eat such as pasta, grainy breads, apples, etc. Has anyone actually done this diet successful with diabetes? If so did you have any troubles with insulin & BGLs? What low GI foods did you find convenient to carry around with you? I'm just interested to know if it can be easily managed or not. I have had discussion with dietitician on the phone and I'm about to visit dietitican soon for more indepth discussion... but I reckon experience from others helps. Would appreciate any experiences you can share on this. Thanks.
