Yes, the Dr. will prescribe the dietitian and testing supplies for prediabetes, if Allan will ask. I don't think he will at this point. That's just it. I've already bought the stuff - and for what to eat, we can wing it (at this point).
You're the most mainstream person I've talked to about it. When he was first diagnosed, a lot of reading we did was anti-ADA. He did bring his FBS down, then we slacked off
and now it's back up.
I say low-carb but it's not extremely low. Really working at getting all the nutrients, and cutting the refined carbs.
By anti-ADA, I mean, I remember one sentence "they tell you to eat the things that are causing the problem" meaning starches. One simple guideline is to avoid sugared beverages and starches.
Will I be going wrong following that? He can check his BS after various types of meals to find out what is OK to eat. If nothing brings it down, I'm sure he'll talk to the Dr. then. Does this sound alright?
