I am a diabetic and my education into this has told me that I must have Carbs' to help maintain my levels.The sessions I attended stated this is a must. I get so confused by the information on this board saying cutting out carb's is a must for various reasons. I am not really a big meat eater. Love fish and chicken. Think that goes back to my days on the farm when I raised 32 orphan lambs one year and some months later couldn't find then. Hubby said "What do you think you have been eating the last while"? That was IT. He loves lamb and I cook it for him, but I still won't eat it.Anyway, I want to do the right thing for my health and I want to loose weight. Am nearly off the Zoloft and the weight is starting to come down oh so slowly, but as I said, I am now really confused.Of course don't have much in the way of sugars and very little fats. I haven't lost weight on the diabetic tablet as I can't take the one I should have. Lost weight on the original one as it gave me muscle pains, severe headaches and explosive and uncontrolled diarohea. Wasn't much fun. Especially when I was out. Came home many times to change. Over in the USA you have a tablet that would be better for me, but it is still not on the list for subsidising and would cost something over $100 aus' per month. Hope they release it soon. Anyway, who else has diabetes and FM and how do they manage? Love Ozgran.
