    Well, I'm not new to the site, but new to this forum. Was just diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I should have expected it, since I have a strong family history, but thought that I might avoid it, with healthy diet and moderate exercise. No luck.

    I started classes on nutrition and diabetes management last night, so am hopeful that can make a difference. DH is very supportive, so no issues there. We tweaked our meal plans for his cholesterol a few years back, and will adapt further for me.

    Looking forward to tips and suggestions from all of you, and hoping I can be helpful in return.

    Diane! Just seeing this, although I've checked the forum, humph....sorry for not getting back to you earlier.

    I am so sorry to hear about you being diagnosed after trying so hard to stay free of this. But, sometimes, it comes despite our biggest tries.

    This forum is a great place to start! Although we can't replace your physician, there are so many ideas and such good information to help keep you on track.

    This month, we are discussing how we are keeping ourselves healthy, adding excercise when you don't have time, eating well....etc....come see us there too. Here's the link: http://www.food.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=386241

    Go look around the forum, there are so many threads that can help you.

    This is one I like: http://www.food.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=373964

    Are you just controlling your diabetes with food control or are you taking medications too?

    Hope to hear from you soon! And a big W E L C O M E to you!

    Thanks Andi! The links are terrific. Doc says we caught this early (we'd been watching for it, given family history), so we're seeing what I can do with diet and exercise before thinking about meds.

    HIGH FIBER

    Low Glycemic Index Foods
    (no more white this 'n that.. whole grain)

    CAREFUL on High Glycemic Foods, and Simple Carbs ie:

    mango

    farina (cream of wheat)

    ice cream

    oatmeal

    candy bars

    Even high fat like avocado and olives, if you eat too much, it can raise your BG levels

    Peanut Butter

    Corn Products (they're highly addictive)

    also, you might consider low sodium. Never been told to, but I never can with salt and I haven't had s&p on the table in about 20 yrs now.

    Lime juice satisfies a lot of salt 'needs'

    I've followed the guideline "If it's white, don't bite" for years. No white rice, pasta, bread, tortillas, or potatoes. (Although, in my heart, white is still my favorite food group)
