Diet for diabetics persons

I am in need of some ideas of foods that diabetics can eat.? I have some cookbooks for Diabetes but sometimes don t agree on what a diabetic can eat. Any ideas or personal experience Jeanie, you hit the nail on the head . That is the way I have always felt about what I can eat. I am going to have to quit coffee as I cannot learn to drink it without sugar and substitute sweetners don t work. I don t like the taste. Many thanks to all who answered.

Fruits and vegeatables, whole grains, pulses, low fat and oil content, these would be universally recommended and also specifically for diabetes. Keep an eye on the quantity of food intake as well along with this. Fruits and vegetables there is no restriction as such.

Good day Doc, I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes on May 2015 and my HbA1c is 7.1 and my SGPT level is 75. My question is, What diet should I take? Can you suggest a best diet plan for me? I am taking Metformin 500mg 2x daily ( Morning and Evening with meal ). My physician prescribed me a 3x daily dose of metformin on May 2015 but since my morning sugar level is at 85-100 range since June till now ( monitored weekly using Glucometer ) I decided to lower my dose of metformin to 2x daily. I spent at least 30 minutes of light exercise a day like walking and jogging to help maintain my blood sugar level.

My father s pancreas has shut down, and he was told that especially with his diabetes, that his kidneys are soon to follow.

Can anyone tell me the name of this? It was like 3 or 4 letters long...
