Help....had my blood sugar tested the other day and it was 504...I was sent straight to the ER because they were concerned about DKA. So 2 days later my sugar is down to 221 with taking Janivia and Metformin, it still needs to come down but I am going in the right direction. My question is what do I eat? I don't eat any meat so that is out. I have been eating whole wheat toast, fruit and cereal but I need some other suggestions on what I can have to eat. Looking forward to hearing from you!
All the things you are eating contain a lot of carb (which turns to sugar). Try eating more veggies and things like nuts. Do you eat eggs? They are filling and low carb too. A nice fritatta or omelette is great for breakfast.
Do you eat dairy? If so, cottage cheese and other low-fat cheeses have more protein than carbohydrate, so they are good. Beware of too much milk, though. Even though it has a fair amount of protein, it has even more carbohydrate.
You say you don't eat meat, but do you eat fish? If so, tuna is an easy way to get more protein in the diet. You could try a tomato stuffed with tuna salad as part of your lunch.
