If you are an insulin dependent diabetic, I'd seriously recommend you read Richard Bernstein MD's "The Diabetic Diet" and his other book "The Diabetic Solution". He has had Type 1 diabetes since he was 12 & was told he wouldn't live past 42, but he is a very healthy 78 now. He has lectures on YouTube.
His diet has very little carbs and he says he has lived well for years without eating any fruit. He has none of the complications that most diabetics have. I think avocados are one of his staple foods. He also recommends doing muscle building exercise which he says lows the need for insulin. I've learned so much from his lectures. 1369 days ago
