Granola bars are all right, but just have to try to eat the ones with the least amt. iof sugar.

Just read your 2nd comment. Bread -- I cannot tolerate it. the carbs and gluten make my blood sugar spike and then plummet like a rock.

Um . . . unfortunately, there is no other way to get your blood sugar than using the glucometer and the finger stick. But you do get used to it.

You need to have something with a carb, gat (once/day on this -- something that is a healthy fat like olive oil, avocado), and protein. I do an apple with about 1tsp of peanut butter, esp. @ night as that protein really helps smooth outthe blood sugar.

YES YES YES it would be a very wise idea to see a dietician.

While the theory behind a granola bar is good, you really have to look @ how much sugar is in it. That's why for me, the focus is on whole foods and foods I make myself, vs. packaged foods.

Just keep a food diary, too, as that will give you some clues.

That's a good question. You really should track your blood sugars. When I was diagnosed w/type 2 I had to keep a food log. I would test my sugars when I got got up, 2 hrs. after breakfast, 2 hrs. after lunch, before supper and before bedtime.

I correlated blood sugars with what I ate. I found the fewer simple carbs I ate the better I felt and the better my sugars were controlled.

I found eliminating all the "whites" helped (white flour, etdc.)

Also bwe sure your protein and fat intake is adequate. The body needs healthy fats to metabolize carbs.
