Fiber is a carbo like sugars and starches. But your body doesn’t digest fiber, so doesn’t affect your blood sugar. Fiber also keeps you full. Get enough fiber! Women need min. 25 gms/day; Men 38 gms/day. Eat fruits/veg/wholegrain.

The goal is healthy carbs. Both white and sweet potatoes are good sources of vitamins, potassium, and fiber. But sweet potatoes are better: they don’t raise blood sugar as much as white ones.

Feeling okay but experiencing higher than normal blood sugar? Eat and take your medicines as usual. Drink water, be active. Check your blood sugar every four hours until it is back to normal. See something unusual or blood sugar rising? Call your doctor.

Insulin makes the body store fat. The more insulin you need to lower blood sugar, the more fat you store. To minimize this, make healthy low carb diet choices to stablilize blood sugar, so you’ll need less insulin.

When you see higher blood sugars (over 200 mg/dl) 90 minutes after a meal, think: what did you eat? How did you eat? When and where did you eat?  Keep a log to help you identify what you can change to return to normal and manage your diabetes around these times.
