Good luck. ...Read more

Non diabetic ate 1/2 scooped out bagel with cream cheese and cafe con leche with sugar  worked  2 hrs after ate sugar 127 ?

Fasting blood sugar is normal if less that 100, borderline 100-125, and diabetic over 125. Takes 2 or more high readings or one over 200 to diagnose diabetes. ...Read more

If diabetes under good control A1c 5.1 &don’t consume added sugar at all, how much natural sugar from fruit and vegetable you should consume every day?

If diabetes under good control A1c 5.1 &don’t consume added sugar at all, how much natural sugar from fruit and vegetable you should consume every day?

All the vegetables.: I recommend as many green vegetables as a patient desires, but caution patients to limit fruit intake to 2-3 servings daily. This is especially important if the patient is overweight. If you are physically active, you may be able to handle a higher fruit intake. I always advise against fruit juice. Remember, "the fruit you eat is always better than the fruit you drink". ...Read more

Thanks?

Diabetes: Yes, you can make desserts with those artificial sweeteners. The key thing with diabetes is to avoid overindulgence. You can negate the benefits of using such sweeteners if you eat too much of them. Make sure to keep your portion sizes down and pay back any excess via regular cardiovascular exercises, like walking, swimming, zumba etc., or what ever exercise you enjoy. ...Read more

Bought blue agave sweetener. Says it's low glycemic. Switched from splenda. Don't like stevia. Am I doing myself any favors? No diabetes, but hi risk.
