I think diabetes is the only disease when we are made to feel we are to blame for doing it to ourselves. First let me tell you , it is no your fault. There are millions of people who eat poorly out there and they never get diabetes. I realy feel that pre diabetics and diabetics have something different in our endocrine systems that don't process carbs very well. So even when we eat normal amounts of carbs, we develop insulin resistance and get high bgs. Most people don't take action until they are dx'd, though. Similar to you I have found I can't tolerate most carbs except some sprouted bread once in awhile. I also use the Coconut oil as my fat and find it helps. As diabetics we have to manage our diets different than the non diabetic. This is very hard to understand. I was trying to explain this to my adult daughter yesterday. Even though some foods like fruit are healthy we can't process it without spiking, so I have to avoid it. She kept telling me I needed to eat more fruit and cereal because it is healthy. She feels she is not at risk because she thinks she eats healthy even though she eats high carb diet. Much of this is genetic, I fear and we have the genes that put us at risk for this disease. Glad you found us.
