Why can't I eat Oatmeal or Fiber cereal?

Why can't I eat Oatmeal or Fiber cereal?

I thought Oatmeal was good for someone who has diabetes but my doctor put me on a diet that says I can't have any cereal which included Oatmeal.

I was told you could eat the Oatmeal if it is the "Steel Cut" variety, which tastes a little strange if you are used to the other. It isn't processed much and they said it was ok. But not cereal.

My husband is type 2 diabetic and his Dr said he can have 1/2 cup of oatmeal or bran flakes, a small apple or orange and 1/2 cup low fat milk. It doesn't spike his bs numbers. We walk after each meal and drink 4-6 cups of water daily for health and happiness.

Oatmeal and cereal both are high in carbohydrates. I know my sugar goes off the charts if I eat cereal.

it is good for you. But if you are a diabetic it's not good for you it's high on carbs which turn into sugar.

Oatmeal has lowered my cholesterol number to 74 in two months as well as eating lean proteins like baked fish, salmon, tuna or chicken, fresh veggies like lettuce, cucumbers, olives, green and red peppers, onions and cooked cabbage, a small fruit twice daily and drinking 12 cups of water now to flush out toxins from your body. We have more energy and sleep good at night. Walk or exercise of 2 hours daily.
