The diabetes is under control by diet only, no meds. I was wondering other than becoming a vegetarian which I won't do, what is best to eat for both conditions. I also enjoy oatmeal 4 times a week, I make a baked oatmeal hoping that will be good for cholesterol, but now hear it isn't good for diabetics. Can you give me some suggestions for meals Tue, 29 Sep 2015 17:53:05 EST Diabetic Shoes http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=3895x18463x62566278 If you are Diabetic and on either one of these... Medicaid or Medicare You qualify for 1 free pair of Diabetic shoes per year. Ask your Dr. to prescribe you a pair. I love my Brooks or New Balance or Nike's. You would also get 3 pairs of inserts that are made especially for your feet and size. It's worth looking into. I go to a place called "Foot Solution" Wed, 23 Sep 2015 02:14:23 EST Is a FitBit exercise tracker worth it? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=3895x18463x62427299 I'm thinking about getting a FitBit.. not sure which one yet... or something like it.
