Diabetes

6AM - Diabetes
As you may know, a couple of days ago my friend John gave me a blood-glucose test.  The result was 190.  Ever since I wrote about that test here in my blog, Readers have been guessing what caused this result and what I should do about it.

I have changed what I eat to be low in carbohydrates.  First thing, I stopped eating Hershey's Kisses.  For several weeks I had been pigging out on those Kisses!  I am now eating fish, salad, fruit, eggs, beef, chicken.  Yesterday at the San Diego Zoo I ate a hamburger and did not eat the bun.

Next month I am scheduled to have blood work done in preparation for prostate surgery.  At that time I will have a blood-glucose test.

How do I feel about this diet?
I am not crazy about this diet.  It is soooooo limiting!  This diet reduces bread that I consume.  A real bummer.  No donuts!  No candy!  On the other hand, I like the foods that are included in this diet.
