There are times when my blood sugar count is low, low, low---I seem to crave sweets at that time and the real thing-the diabetic sweets just won’t do at that point. I NEED to get the sugar blood count UP!! I do try to grab something that won’t shoot my blood sugar up HIGH, HIGH, HIGH. I am slowly finding items that will stop the craving and don’t wreak total havoc. When I crave ice cream—I manage to limit myself to a couple of teaspoons full.
Then there are those times I want something salty. This is usually when I am becoming dehydrated which happens to me all too frequently. My body is telling me to eat something salty to help retain water. And I listen—after that bout of total dehydration I experienced which I still say was the reason I ended up Type 2 Diabetic—never again thank you very much!! My body also craves salty snacks when my blood pressure is too low----unfortunately salty snacks like potato chips can affect my blood sugar-lots of carbs in most of those.
It is definitely not easy being a diabetic (even if, like me, you got it totally under control by diet alone!). It is a balancing act which you perform daily if not more. Do I sometimes goof up—of course!! But I try to get myself right back on track. I have already found several food & snack items which are diabetic friendly and have blogged about them. On the left hand side of my blog is a category called Diabetic Saga which is where you will find them, and where I will continue to blog about items as I find them!
