Default New diabetic and returning member

I'd been on Fitday years ago, though I didn't use it a lot and I don't recall any forums then. A few days ago I was diagnosed as diabetic and it occurred to me that Fitday would be a great way to keep track of my diet, especially carbs.

I don't need to lose weight - at 120 pounds I'm at the low end of what I consider my ideal weight range. But my blood sugar is totally out of control. (I had two readings of 548 Friday.) I suspect my doctor will decide I need insulin when I see her again in two weeks, but in the meantime I'm on meds and trying to adjust diet enough to avoid those horrendous spikes in blood sugar.

If there are other diabetics on the forums, I'll be particularly interested in sharing concerns and ideas.
