Salutations kind folks at TuD,
As of yesterday I was diagnosed with T2 Diabetes by my doctor. Doc ordered labs which came back showing 10.9 A1c, estimated my avg glucose at 266mg/dL. The bloodwork from the morning showed glucose at 332mg but i had ate a couple of real sugary cookies rushing out the door.
I don’t think it’s hereditary as I only know of 2 family members (great uncle, great grandmother) who had it. I had done labs a little over 2 years ago in which the doctor then had talked about my liver enzymes being “elevated.” He never really explained anything and just told me to take 2 pills once a day, wasn’t given a meter/told i had diabetes/ etc…
Doc prescribed me metmorfin SR 500g once a day with dinner. I also have to measure fbg and bg before going to bed. Last night before bed i measured at 237mg and this morning at 245mg. I’ve already started to make changes to my diet and will begin working out also per doc’s orders.
Do any of you kind folks have a list of foods that one can eat freely? I’ve googled some lists and *sample meal plans but i feel like i’ll go hungry eating so lightly. What does a typical breakfast/lunch/dinner/snack schedule look like for you T2’s?
Any info is appreciated
