Hello, I was recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes where i am at a 5.7 H which is how bad I am. What would you recommend for how much carbs I need to look at?

Thanks for your question! Unfortunately, I can't answer medical questions over the internet. It's best to talk to your healthcare provider about your specific dietary needs based on your medical history. You can ask your doctor for a referral to meet with a registered dietitian (RD) to come up with a plan together.

Hi, good afternoon. I have a question on gestational diabetes and the need for insulin. Can she change with diet? She is very concerned and is a SNAP participant.

Thank you for your concern. Unfortunately I am not able to answer medical nutrition therapy questions over the internet. I would recommend you go to your primary care doctor and OG-GYN to help you with the gestational diabetes. They can also refer you to a Registered Dietitian in your are to provide individualized support.

I am a diabetic on insulin and recently told that I have gastroparesis. I am supposed to only eat soft, easy to digest food and still keep sugar under control.
