Drinking lots of water with lemon helps portioned meals work great lots of vegetables is great. Water flushes high sugar levels.

I’ll make, I too have been suffering with hslevels all year. I crave sweets and never did before I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Are you on any type medication?

My husband has high blood sugars. He is on 4 medications. He has a really bad sweet tooth. I am diabetic also but only on metformin. I use to have a sweet tooth, but not no more. I stay away from candy. Every once in a while I have one candy just to get the sweetness out of my mind. I know it is hard but you have to think of the future and how you can change your habits. Good luck.

My husband takes metformin 2 times and is on trulicy one time a week plus 1 shot of metformin in the morning and another one in the morning. Then one shot before supper. He still eats his sweets. I only take metformin twice a day and that is pill form. I guess it is will power for me.

How do you manage your nutrition? If carb counting, I have found that if I eat alot of carbs later in the evening, my fasting sugars are higher. I was hoping to “save” carbs from earlier in the day so I could eat a little more oh what I want for dinner. Not working…😞

No I don’t count carbs it’s to much work. It makes me depressed.

I try not to eat a lot late at night. I usually check my blood sugars before bedtime.

It did for me at first. VERY overwhelming. The educator I saw gave me a couple pages that list/group foods according to their carb count. Even “free” food. It is making it easier. Would you be interested enough to have me attach pics of the pages?
