Well, she has a cup of milk for breakfast. Low carb soup - such as
chicken gumbo - for lunch. Then dinner is usually something like stir
fry chicken or pork. Then she has another couple of cups of milk
before bed. Really not eating much at all.
Not much protein, which, along with fats, is the healthiest food for keeping blood glucose controlled and without spikes. Milk contains a sugar, lactose, that rapidly raises blood glucose, so she should probably stop getting so much of her nutrition from it.
How many carb grams per meal is she having? How much protein and fat?
I was just looking at a study that suggested increasing leafy greens,
nuts and whole grains to bring up the magnesium level, so I'm
definitely putting salads back on the menu. And cinnamon. And aloe
Fiber and fat both slow glucose rises and help to improve glucose control. Leafy veggies are a great way to get fiber, as are nuts, avocadoes, olives.
Dan, the higher her % of calories from protein and fat, which do not raise bg in type 2 DMs and the lower her % of calories from carbs, the more control she ought to have.
