Opportunity to help my mom w Type 2 diabetes
My mom has T2DM, hypertension and a heart arrythmia. She is probably at least as over weight as I was when I started losing weight. She had another hypertension episode a few weeks ago and was strongly encouraged by her Dr to lose some weight. The diet recommendations were low salt, low carb, lots of veggies and small portions of meat. I haven't seen her since Xmas 2011, which was 3 months before I started losing weight, and I haven't told her I've lost 50 lbs or that DH has lost 40lbs. She and my dad will be visiting next week. I'm seeing an opportunity here...
Those of you who test (or have tested) your blood sugar to determine which foods are messing with you, what are the worst ones? She's a big fan of bread. I'm sure she's getting plenty of healthy, whole grains. I know she's fat-phobic, from past experience. It's kind of ironic because the reason I decided I had to lose weight and drifted into primal eating was that I was anxious to avoid ending up like her.
