where people touched by diabetes help each other.

I lost all the joy in living. I just eat enough to survive. I am so sick of eating veggies, used to love not no more. I lost the joy of cooking. I'm dreading the holiday watching people eat. This suck

Remember u r a person first. And someone w Diabetes second. Try not to let the diabetes consume u, u r in charge - live your life but be smart about your diabetes. I know u r trying hrd. Keep it up!

Why are you limiting yourself to veggies? Everything in moderation of course but I don't restrict my diet at all.

All I hear from nurse/dietician is a vegetarian diet is best for diabetes. Eating veggies wears off your hunger for about half an hour, continuously hungry till I get to eat again in about 4 hrs over?

It sounds like you need protein. Veggies fill you up because you can eat more. However, protein takes a while to digest and keeps you feeling full longer.

I eat my 3-5 oz portion of protein, tiny portion of carbs and lots of veggies to not feel hungry. I'm good for about that half hour. Such is the sucky life I've been dealt. Hurts getting sleep.

I think you should talk to your doctor and see if they will refer you to a dietician. A dietician that has experience with diabetes should be able to help you.

I'm doing exactly what the dietician and her guide book says. The nurse & dietician both said vegetarian diet is best. Causes lack of sleep from hunger and stress about what to eat or not to eat.

My doctor said to try to reduce stress and get at least 8 hours of sleep, which will help control BG levels.

I've had diabetes for 19 years and have never been told that. I probably do things differently than a lot of diabetics. I eat healthy but lean meats and fruits are a part of my diet

I also exercise to help control my blood sugars. I think it's a good idea to find what works best for you
