Does anyone know of an app that tells you what the macro-nutrients are in your menu? I would like a user friendly one for your phone that has a large database of different foods. I think my BS are higher than normal because I'm eating the wrong things thinking they are the right things. Or would you suggest a dietitian appointment is necessary?

Penny, there are a few depending on the operating system you use. A lot of people like MyFitnessPal. I tried it and it worked fine but it did more than I needed it to. I settled on using FatSecret.

My suggestion is to go to your device‘s App Store and look at a few. Many will let you try them for free and you can see how you get along.

There's a surefire way to tell is you're eating right for your diabetes.

Test, test, test.


Once you determine that a food is "good" or "bad" you can avoid the bad ones and base your menus on the good ones.

Re: a dietitian - I'm not sure you'll benefit a lot from one. Usually they recommend way more carbs than most diabetics can safely eat, allow a higher BG level than is actually safe, and couple their poor advice with medications to compensate.

A good read through will educate you well beyond most dietitians, and even some doctors.
