"I am not type 2 and I am not type 1 yet, the doctor's said I was in the gray area, so I am type 1.5. I will be glad I guess to get on insulin, so maybe I will gain some weigh back, and I can start eating some of my favorite foods, but I know I…"

"I just start on Januvia once daily, I am only taking it until I go on insulin, this has brought my sugar down below 200, but I am going to get a second opinion. My doctor didn't say let's try on some other medicine, he said take Januvia to…"

Hi joybug! I was reading your comment....

"I tried Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate, 60 calories, carbs 11 grams, dietary fiber 1 grams, sugar 7 grams, that figures 11- 1= 10- 7= 3 grams and my sugar went up. A couple of days later, I tried Nestle No sugar added hot chocolate, 50 calories, carbs 9 grams, dietary fiber 1 grams sugar 8 grams, that figures 9-1= 8-8=0 grams and my sugar didnot go up. What is the difference."

The "sugar" content is already included in the "carbs", so you don't subtract that. The only thing that you may subtract from the carbs is the fibre content....simply because the fibre content slows down the absorption of carbs. So, your calculation for Swiss Miss should read....11-1=10, and the calculation for Nestle No Sugar should read....9-1=8.

The difference is 2 grams more of carbs for Swiss Miss....but there are other factors in the mix....such as fat content. Fat content slows down absorption. As well, were both packets of same amount in size??

Sorry, don't get your math:) "Nestle No Sugar added. Cal 50, Total Carbohydrates 9grams Deitary Fiber 1grams sugar 8grams. 9-1=8, 8-8= 0 GRAMS. Swiss Miss No sugar added. Cal 60 total carbohydrates 11grams, dietary fiber 1 gram, sugar 7 grams. 11-1=10, 10-7=3."

Why are you deducting the number of sugar grams from the number of carbs? If these are sugar alcohols, then they are subtracted.

Hi joybug....I was away on holidays and just returned yesterday. I've read your your post about certain foods making you ill, and what I've noticed is a pattern of feeling unwell after ingesting greasy foods....I have that problem too, and it's directly connected to my gallbladder (I have gall stones)...in fact it happened during our holiday, as we occasionally ate very rich foods! Spicy and fatty foods are also problematic. And of course, any time you are unwell....your blood sugar goes up!!!!

Hi Joy...I take 2 different meds for blood pressure, and with those, my BP is usually around
the first numbers you mentioned....124/77, sometimes higher...I have gone thereabouts as low as the last reading you wrote, but it never stayed there. The bottom line, listen to your instinct...call your doctor, if only to give you peace of mind.
Be well dear friend...and let me know how it all comes about!
luv.....linda

Oh man....balancing diabetes can be SO frustrating! You can eat/do the same things 3 days in a row, and not have the same readings. Just when you start thinking you've got the hang of it....something comes into play and throws you for a loop! Sometimes you thing some type of food will send you high...and it doesn't. And the converse!!! Here too, potatoes aren't too bad for me...rice is worse...and pasta worse still!!! And 1/2 a (healthy) yucky tasting bran muffin (would prefer the decadent type!) at the coffee shop...just 1/2!!! sends me through the roof!
About subtracting fibre from carb count....a lot of people are not aware of this...so now YOU know :) And by the way....YOU'RE DOING GREAT!!!
luv...linda
