St.Dalfour Jams

These Jams are made with Grape Juice instead of Sugar and are recommended by the French Diabetes Association.This method of preserving Fruit was devised during the First World war by the present owner's Grand Mother due to the shortage of Sugar---since they had extensive Fruit Orchards and Vineyards,she devised this method to preserve the Fruit.I use this on my Toasts and in my Trifle Puddings and eat it without guilt----tastes yummy and is 100% natural-no additives!A bit expensive but worth it!

Fruits and Veggies

Good Morning All, I'm finding out that I cannot eat Fruits and Veggies after lunch...It brings my numbers to high if I eat them for dinner or for an evening snack. And that includes my favorite, Apple Cidar ! ! !

Carry a small pack of sugar everywhere you go.

My mother lives with diabetes every day. It is a scary thing when someone you love has extreme highs or lows in their sugar. One thing I learned, is to keep a sugar pack on hand everywhere you go. If your blood sugar drops, and your teeth lock, a family member or friend can take the sugar and pour it around the inside of the bottom lip to bring the blood sugar levels up quickly.

surfing the Diabetic tide

If you were to check your glucose levels every hour and graph the results your should see gentle waves on the graph not high peaks and lows. The easiest way for me to achieve this is to eat 4 small meals and 1-2 snacks at equal distant times. I make sure to have fibrous carbs and low fat proteins in all of them. One of my fav snacks is tart apple with the skin on, sliced, spread with real peanut peanut butter. Eating a small amount every 3-4 hours keeps the tranquil flow.

Is There a 'Safe' Blood Sugar Level?

Yes, there is a safe blood sugar level. It is the optimum range that safely provides the body with adequate amounts of energy. For the average person, it is 70 to 105 mg/dl in a fasting state. (Diabetes is diagnosed when the fasting blood glucose level is at or above 126 mg/dl.)
