If it is high you will know what needs to be limited or eliminated.
That's the thing though, I don't eat many carbs. I usually don't even hit 3 carb servings in a meal because of my blood sugar and I don't know what to do about it. The nutritionist I saw gave me lists of things that are good to eat when you have diabetes and things to avoid/limit and I've been following that but its as if its not helping.
