Information on Diabetes18 Replies
My Doctor has just told me that my blood test has revealed that I am type 2 diabetic. This is a bit of a shock but as I want to deal with this in as sensible way as possible I wonder if anyone can give me information on a couple of questions. The Doctor did not suggest any particular diet or where I can go for advice, but all he said was NO sugar NO honey, bananas, pineapple, grapefruit and not to bother with special diet foods. I have been on to various web sites and there is no mention of No sugar just that I must keep to a healthy diet and lose weight. I am not particularly overweight, maybe half a stone, and consider I already have a healthy diet, however I am partial to a little too much chocolate. I shall be going back to UK before Xmas so can pick up some information over there, but until then I am really confused as to what I should be eating and what I should be avoiding. Just wondered if anyone can give me some advice to point me in the right direction please. Any help would be most gratefully received.
