Hi and :welcome: from me, too.

If you're still learning about carbs, I'll tell you in as simple terms as possible:

All carbohydrate is converted to sugar. Period. The worst types of carbs for diabetics are anything REFINED (sugar, white flour, etc.), most grains (wheat, oats, barley, etc.) and starchy carbs like potatoes, corn, rice and pasta.

Our best carb sources are veggies (except potatoes, corn) and some fruit in moderation. (I can eat about 3/4C of berries or cherries at a serving with no complications.) But you have to test yourself after you eat to be sure.

Some of us do eat whole-grain or sprouted-grain breads, in moderation. For example, I usually have 1 slice maximum at a time. Others of us don't eat breads at all.

There's a great write-up on lowering your blood sugar at Blood Sugar 101 that I recommend all newcomers read.

Glad you joined us here, and good luck!
