Your doctor should recommend a "diabetic school" for self care that you can go to. The classes will explain what you need based on your total calorie intake. Your doctor could also recommend that you go to a nutritionist.

AnswerBran cereal in the morning is great as well as "Red River Cereal" that has bran, but also flax seed. Another good one (keeps that cholesterol down) is oatmeal and apples. Don't buy the single packs (they are loaded with sugar) but make it the good old fashion way by following the directions on the box and boiling it until it becomes thick. There is also another good product out which is Prune Juice (brand new and tastes nice.) Alternate your bran and grains with a small glass of prune juice. You can keep regulated by eating leafy veggies such as brussel sprouts, spinach, broccoli and some lettuces. My mom was a diabetic from the time she was 35 and passed away at the age of almost 84, so if you look after yourself and eat well and exercise (keep that blood circulating) you have a lot of life ahead of you. Here's a tip: If you travel or have a part-time job or you just work in the garden, always carry a peanut butter sandwich with you should you feel weak. It has a good pump of protein in it and a little sugar that you will need if you have unexpected low blood sugar readings. If your blood sugar readings are all over the map at times go see your doctor and get your hormone levels checked. Often men have low to high testosterone levels that can certainly alter your blood sugars and it's annoying. My brother just went through that and he's 58. Also keep in close contact with your family doctor if you are finding a problem with your blood sugar readings and have your thyroid tested (T3/T4 test) and adrenal gland. If you are American (I'm Canadian) I know this is difficult cost wise and hope you can manage to do keep a keen eye on things.
