One thing that helps keep my glucose levels down is Native Food. Sweet potatoes, squash, beans and corn. I know the doctors say not to eat some of these. However, I did my own glucose test with different foods to see how MY body reacts.
I've come to realize, despite my mixed heritage, my body is genetically not suited to processed foods.
Keeping active, losing some weight, and eating right got me off insulin and I plan to keep it that way.
When it rains, a few minutes of Tai Chi or some intensive house cleaning is a great substitute for a 20 minute walk.
