Doctor just diagnosed me last Friday over the phone! I was given no other details except to see the dietician on July 18th! I am going to the beach on Sunday and I am scared to death. I bought a monitor and it always spikes in the morning after breakfast no matter what I eat. Up to 172! Even two eggs and spinach! I can usually keep it under 140 as long as I eat every couple of hours but I am not sure I am eating enough. I am starving to death and scared to eat. My fasting glucose was 123 and my two hour glucose tolerance was 253. I want to enjoy the beach with my kids but also want to have some energy. I am so depressed. Pleas help. My husband is frustrated with me. I need a sample menu/snack plan or something.
