Obviously my doctor recommended diet/lifestyle changes with blood tests showing I’m prediabetic, but I’m very confused about how to change my diet. I’m wondering if anyone else has had issues being on a highly restrictive diet? My diet has been gluten, dairy & soy free, very low sugar intake (only natural sugars), very low sodium intake (no added salt). I have sensitivities and extreme pain reactions to all of those foods, but I’m also chronically underweight and my diet makes it really hard to eat enough food in a day. I only had an increase in my glucose levels over the last 6 months but it was somewhat significant. Any recommendations on improving my diet from here?? Should I try to re-introduce anything?

      Going on a keto-inspired meal plan has helped a bunch. I use Hello Fresh’s carb conscious meal plans.

      Try smaller meals & snacks dairy 3 hrs, that will help keep your sugars from spiking. Then subsequent insulin Spikes. Try to keep your carb limit to 25 every snack & 40 every meal. Always have protein with your carbs.

      Talk with a nutritionist about your diet and how to improve your lifestyle with diabetes! I am struggling with GERD and prediabetes at the moment and it's so hard to find foods that can help with both conditions
