I was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes and put on Metformin on June 26th, 2019. I started some diabetes diet and followed it 100% for a few weeks and could not get my blood sugar to go below 140. Finally i began to panic and called my doctor, he told me to get used to it. He said I would be on metformin my whole life and eventually insulin. At that point i knew something wasn’t right and began to do a lot of research. Then I found a diabetes website http://www.wellhealthplans.com/diabetestreatmentvideo I read that article from end to end because everything the writer was saying made absolute sense. I started the diet that day and the next morning my blood sugar was down to 100 and now i have a fasting blood sugar between Mid 70’s and the 80’s. My doctor took me off the metformin after just three week of being on this lifestyle change. I have lost over 30 pounds and 6+ inches around my waist in a month. The truth is we can get off the drugs and help myself by trying natural methods

Hey guys quick question I’m looking for a lower carb/calorie option to bring bgs up I’m trying to do lower carb diet …. lower carb lower insulin intake …. not cutting it out all together just curious if there’s anything better than juice boxes and candy I tried the glucose tabs but I’ve gotta eat a whole roll for my sugar to do anything
Steven Waskewicz Depends on how foods to eat if diabetic type 2 quickly you want it to take effect. I carry a pocket full of Jolly Rancher hard candies, or use Glucose tabs for fast “bring up my blood sugar”… Anything else is slower
Denise Gill Scheffler Dried mangos, you should cut your insulin so you don’t have so many lows. I eat the same way. I use glucose tabs but one 1 or 2
Helena Wiston You can’t bring blood good food for diabetes in pregnancy glucose up with low carb options. The whole point is that you need fast acting carbs to bring blood glucose up. That being said, it doesn’t mean that it has to come from artificial things like candy. You can have natural sugar like orange juice, raisins, dates…but you need the sugar.
Jenn Taylor You can’t worry about low carb when you need to fix a low. Eventually your body will need less to recover once you are low carb long enough
Elizabeth Ruben Spoonful of peanut butter, handful of raisins, half a banana. I start with a little then have more if needed. Sometimes a little goes a long way. Other times I combine
Kimberly Sturm Use 5-6 skittles, 15 min, bam it’s up.
Deb Dabson I foods to eat if diabetic type 2 have a half glass of milk. Brings me back up. Took me awhile diabetic dinner recipes with eggs to figure that out. Just tried different things to see what worked best
Linda Rains Penrod I use these. Easy to carry in my pocket but not something I like so much I overindulge.
Ilana Neftin Straight honey is going to be your fastest option with lowest excess calories. Dried pineapple is a good portable option!
Jan Green The fiber in the fruit slows it foods to eat if diabetic type 2 down. Better straight juice or glucose
JesseJaime Earl Jan Green well yes, depends on how low for sure. Good point!
Lynne Arnott You need what you need carb wise with regards to treating a low – don’t mess around with that!
Generally the rule of thumb is 15g, wait 15 mins, retest, repeat if necessary.
Jan Green How long do you wait to retest. How low is low? For a true lie stick to the glucose, 5 skittles or gummy bears
