Ask for a referral to see a dietitian or a diabetes educator. Your insurance should cover it. Maybe try logging your meals - watch your serving sizes. You want to watch your carbohydrate intake, not just "sugar". Fruits, juices, breads, cereals, pastas - all will affect your blood sugar levels. Weight loss and exercise will help keep your blood sugar down too.

Hi Zandra. I'm Dianna, am diabetic T2 and I agree with NCNOLE. How high is your blood sugar running? I've sent you a buddy request in case you'd like to chat. In the meantime, please keep posting. There's a lot of support on this site.

Hi Zandra. I'm T or Teresa and am T2 diabetic as well. I agree with the other two posts. How long have you been diabetic? I haven't talked to a dietician, however, I have talked to my Dr. and am currently in a Nutrition Class. I know for a fact that when I was losing weight, my sugar went down, when I started gaining the weight back, they became uncontrollable.

Sometimes it's not just staying away from the sodas, or not eating sweets/junk food, sometimes it's the bread and the potatoes and the things that we grew up eating that are the culprit. One of the things I've discovered about myself is that I can't deny myself something I want, however, I do have to limit myself to just one bite, or just one small piece. For chocolate, I allow myself 1 Fiber One brownie a day.

You can also try choosemyplate.gov they have a lot of good information regarding foods you can eat and should limit yourself on. Just don't give up and stick with it!

Weight flucuation
It defies the laws of physics if you didn't put on additional clothing, food or water. Perhaps it's just that home scales aren't perfect... Or are you having water?

Calories and sodium
If you still want to have sodium, just raise your potassium intake. As you lose weight, your blood pressure will also reduce.
