I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about a week ago. The doctor laughed and was very blase' about it. I was really upset about it and cried. I was started on the pills and have been trying not to eat.. well much of anything. My blood sugar is still high. I'm so frustrated. Does anyone have any suggestions.

Hi @Tcbreeze‍, thank you for your comment, I've moved it to this pre-existing discussion about nutrition and diabetes for more visibility. I'm so sorry you went through that, no doctor should treat you that way! 

We have a few articles in our Health Magazine that you may find helpful as a jumping off point for changing your diet, I'll link them here:  

Can anyone else share some advice? Do you follow a particular diet for your diabetes? Are there certain foods you avoid? What advice can you share for someone who is new to diabetes?

Thank you Courtney...J.  I have been eating raw garlic. I eat blueberries and greek yogurt. My blood sugar is going down. (I'm so happy)  Carenity has helped me a lot. I do have another question. I did a urine test and my doctor said it has proteins in it. Is there any way to fix this?

@lcastiwg my sugars fluctuates between 140-230 even with 14 units of insulin and 1000 mg of metformin 2x a day. It was almost 600 even I found out I was diabetic. A1C was 12.6! I feel tons better but if its gets lower than 140 I start to feel sluggish.  I've done much better with it though. I've quit sodas! I didn't know garlic helped. I LOVE garlic!! Guess it doesn't work for everyone. Lol
