I have a few questions actually.. I love rice and I have seen where Brown rice is better than white for diabetics. Is this true? Same for pasta is whole wheat better than plan?

This question in one form or other seems to come around again and again.

I just got my third covid vaccine (booster) on September 9, 2021. Ever since my blood sugar goes up more every day. Today is 14 days since the vacc and my sugar is very high 200-304. It's never like this but I made notes after the other two vaccs which were in March and April and both the vaccines did the same thing to me. Has any of this happened with any of you?
My sugar was okay after two vaccines for corona virus. I have not had my booster vaccine yet.
This is a frequent source of anger brought on by my frustration with knuckleheads. I don’t need anger or anything else negative in my life so I need to turn to y’all here - which I should have done a long time ago. Bear with me, please, I feel like I’m dealing with morons
Y’all know the drill. I’m diabetic. There’s a lot of stuff I can’t eat. I buy what I can eat and I have to share fridges. I find that others eat my food “because it’s healthy”. More often than not I find myself without food… read more
