I am type 2. My head always felts like it is foggy and I am drunk. Doesn't anyone else feel like this? I've told my doctor and he sent me to a Neuro. He found nothing wrong. But the MRI tech told me she is type 2 too and her head feels like that also when her sugars are a little high. Anyone else?

One of my "revamped" recipes from another

I loved the Furr's Cafeteria pie (way back when we had a Furr's....they have been gone from this area for years), after I became a diabetic I revamped a lot of recipes so I could have "just a little" of them while everyone else devoured the whole pie.
Check it out.
Furr's Cafeteria "Pineapple Millionaire Pie" (with adjustments for Diabetics to be able to eat some)

Diabetic 2 and recipes

I have been a diabetic 2 about a year and trying to control my blood sugar by diet. I use the American Diabetic Ass. food exchange plan and has worked really well for me. Dr wants me to keep my bs down below 100 and have been able to most of the time. I'm looking forward in visiting with all of you and entering recipes with the nutritional value and exchanges.

Have any of you tried "Carbquick" ???

I am a diabetic and have been looking for low carb way to fix foods...was wanting to know if any of you have tried this and what was your opinion.

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.

Brown sugar is white sugar with molasses or partially refined cane sugar.
The health conscious and the diabetic need to know how to substitute refined sugars with natural alternatives. Natural sugar substitutes are considered safer than refined sugars such as brown sugar. According to "The New York Times" article, "Is Sugar Toxic," research shows that refined sugar is leading the increase in obesity and diabetes in America. To lower the use of refined sugars in your diet, choose natural sugar-free substitutes for brown sugar. Add this to my Recipe Box.

Agave nectar comes from a succulent grown in Mexico. The sap is tapped and it is not cooked. Agave nectar is raw food considered to have a low-glycemic index, which means it has less impact on blood sugar than refined sugars such as brown sugar. To substitute agave for brown sugar, use 2/3 cup of agave nectar to replace one cup brown sugar. In baking, you may need to reduce other liquids in the recipe by 1/4 cup or slightly less, since brown sugar is wetter than white sugar.

Honey is a natural sugar-free substitute for brown sugar. Made from bees, honey was first utilized in ancient Egypt, India and Europe. It was brought to America in the 17th century by European immigrants. The inventions of the moveable-frame bee hive and comb foundation maker helped create a viable beekeeping industry in the 19th century. Bees pollinate plants on farms and the honey bees make from the pollen is used as a sweetener. To substitute it for brown sugar, use 2/3 cup of honey for one cup of brown sugar. Reduce liquids in baking recipes by 2 tablespoons.

5 Foods you must not eat:
Cut down a bit of stomach fat every day by never eating these 5 foods.
Juice Concentrate
Fruit juice concentrates, such as grape, apple and orange, add flavor while substituting brown sugar. Use 3/4 cup of juice concentrate for recipes that call for one cup brown sugar. Reduce the liquids in the recipe by three tablespoons. Juice concentrate does not have as much fiber as whole fruit, if at all, but it contains the same vitamins and antioxidants as the fruit. Though juice is perceived as being healthy, it can contain high amounts of sugar and carbohydrates.

Date Sugar
Date sugar is not a sugar at all, but ground up dehydrated dates. Other sugar substitutes do not have much fiber, but date sugar is high in fiber and has all the same vitamins and minerals that dates have. It does not dissolve well in liquids but it works well in baked recipes. Substitute date sugar for brown sugar one to one. Two teaspoons of date sugar has 20 calories and four grams of carbohydrates.
