I would like have discussions and recipes just for diabetics...I see groups for sugar-free recipes and that's great, but when I was diagnosed (about 7 years ago), I was taught to only count carbs...when I did that I lost 50 lbs.! I know sugar-free is not the only way to go...

Lately tho, I've experianced more than a few highs. One b.s. check was 400. Ugh ! That felt awful. I finally had my regular check up yesterday. All my numbers came back good, except my A1c. It wasnt on the list at all. But, my doctor took a look at my print outs and wasnt that pleased. She is giving me a break to work on getting my numbers down. I see her again in one month. So, we'll see how it goes. Thanks for the great recipes on here. I've saved several.

Carbquik (Low-Carb, All-Purpose Baking Mix)
Carbquik is an excellent tasting, low-carb baking mix.
With only 2 net carbs per serving and no sugar, sugar-alcohols, or trans-fats, it meets the guidelines for all popular low-carb diets, and is also lower in sodium and calories.
At the same time, it is high in "good" nutrients such as fiber and protein. And since it's made from wheat instead of soy, Carbquik makes great tasting, low-carb meals that everyone will love.
Carbquick can be used in many recipes, such as biscuits, muffins, pancakes, waffles, pizza crust, and dumplings, as well as many cake and sweet dough recipes.
Carbquik is made with Carbalose, which behaves like wheat flour, because unlike similar products, it is made mostly from wheat, yet it lacks most non-fiber carbohydrates.
Carbalose is made through a unique process and contains enzyme-modified wheat, as well as plant fiber, wheat protein and some unique conditioners, enzymes and emulsifiers.
Carbalose does not contain any soy protein, sugar-alcohols, dairy, animal-originated, trans-fatty, or saturated fat products.
Unlike many "low-carb" products, Carbquik was submitted in both dry and baked form, to two independent food labs:
Microbac Laboratories and Silliker Laboratories.
The results are reflected on the nutrition label.
