From Belton, Missouri, USA:

I'm 15 who was diagnosed a month ago, and I was wondering are there any "free foods" that can be eaten that don't affect your blood sugar?


Foods that have little effect on blood glucose include most vegetables (not the starchy ones), and proteins. The proteins if overdone can contribute to the blood sugar level, but basically a snack of veggies and dip or some of the sugarfree jello might hit the spot. The sugarfree soft drinks are okay in moderation.
