How can my husband keep his blood sugar down?

Answer

Nobody should completely eliminate carbs. They key is to balance carbohydrates, fiber, fat, and proteins at eating occasions to prevent sharp peaks in blood sugar. Also, losing weight can help manage blood sugar. Given his other medications and lymphedema, I would ask your doctor to recommend a dietitian who can provide some suggestions for his individual situation.
