Doing this without a doctor When I first received my diagnosis I did a lot of research and was shocked at the numerous differences in opinion about what food plan to work on etc. My biggest advice is to buy the book Diabetes for Dummies. You might even find it in the library. It explained a lot to me.
Diet and exercise is everything in diabetes and medication would be warranted in your case as 244 is quite high. My doc said to call if I hit 200. That is not to scare you but for you to know it is serious. Carbs and sugar are not your friends as they spike blood sugar. If you can work on cutting down those two and eating more lean protein, fiber rick veggies and fruit you would be well on your way as you start amassing information on diabetes... And exercise. Don't forget the exercise.
I am praying for you so you find what you need and have some peace.
If you have questions I would be happy to try to answer.
