I’ve been following Atkins, doing low-carb, to control my numbers. It was working well, I only took 1 Prandin at breakfast (dawn phenomenon issue), and was able to control my bs and lose weight. I’ve lost 41 pounds since diagnosis in 8/08.
Now the problem. I have gallstones and will be having my gallbladder removed in 2 weeks. Surgeon told me to stop the low carb/high fat as it is only aggravating my problem and I won’t be able to follow Atkins after surgery. I’ve changed my diet to a more South Beach diet approach but my numbers have jumped and I’m back to taking the Prandin before all meals. I’m sure the weight loss will stop also. (It was slow enough before!)
What do I do now? It seems everytime I figure out something that will work for me, I have to change it. I plan to go to a dietician/nutritionist after surgery for some help but would appreciate any thoughts on what I could do now. Thanks:)
