Hi Lisa, I came across this site today and was very happy I did. I was reading a comment life by Jan and I was wondering if you could give me some ideas regarding different things to eat. My son was diagnosed in November and thank god its the last day of school tomorrow. I ran out of things to pack him for lunch. Now is on to summer, I just need ideas.
Hi, Lisa. Came across your comment re Dr. Bernstein's diet. Your daughter's A1c is a thing of beauty. My 10 year old niece has had D for two years and A1c is now 6.9 (usually ranges 6.4 -6.7, we have been 7.1). Whenever she has a week of raging high BS, I start looking up dietary and exercise advice, LOL. I just finished Dr. Bernstein's book (my sister is reading it now) and we think he is on to something. However, she would never give up pasta, fruit, etc. I'm trying to find a middle ground. Could you give me an idea as to what you can feed your daughter for breakfasts, lunches and dinners? Does Dr. Bernstein allow more carbs for children? We are allowed to give anywhere between 30-70 carbs per meal and usually give 60. I think we may perhaps do four meals at 40 and see what happens. When bolusing for 60 to 70 grams, she will go sky high, and then often low. Could you tell me your experience with Dr. Bernstein and his diet? We live near him.
