Controlling your diabetes requires a careful balance of lifestyle habits, including eating right, exercising, and taking your proper medication. But it can be tricky to navigate proper nutrition, especially with foods that sound healthy but can actually wreak havoc on your blood sugar and overall health. In fact, diabetics are two to four times more likely than people without diabetes to die of heart disease or experience a life-threatening stroke, according to the American Heart Association. It’s even more dangerous for those who don’t control their diabetes; it can lead to heart disease, nerve damage, and kidney disease. To stay on track, be sure to avoid these 50 foods that will spike your blood sugar and lead to chronic inflammation. Luckily, life with diabetes doesn’t have to be flavor free. “After working with thousands of diabetic individuals over the years, I noticed that many asked me the same question at their first appointment. ‘Can I still eat my favorite foods?’” says Lori Zanini, RD, CDE, author of Eat What You Love Diabetes Cookbook. “And the answer from me was always ‘Yes!’ It’s the portion sizes and frequency that makes the most difference, in Continue reading >>

    I am about to increase my dose of Metformin again, and the problem is that it makes me so sick. For a lot of you that are on Metformin for PCOS, you understand. Previously when I was on this high of a dose I was not watching what I was eating and the only food I could actually keep in my system for a decent amount of time was fast food. Gross, I know. Now that I am watching what I am consuming, I am looking for healthier options that might not make me as sick. I know that any kind of vegetable and fruit makes me extremely sick. I am looking for any kind of advice or suggestions. I really appreciate it!
    By the way, I am tying extended release so maybe that will help a little bit.

    fast food probably worked better because you were eating a higher dose of fat. i have found that my side effects from metformin are reduced if i eat under 100 grams of carbs a day and make up the rest with protein and fat. fat is brain food, so don't be afraid of it! good luck!
    *edit: extended release should help tummy issues a lot.
