Question: I'm confused about sugars and starches. Which raises my blood glucose the most-a brownie or a piece of bread?

Tip: Sugars and starches are carbohydrates and, eaten in equal amounts, they raise blood glucose about the same. A small brownie (15 grams of carbohydrates) raises blood glucose the same as one slice of bread (15 grams of carbohydrates). For years, we thought that the body absorbed sugar more quickly than starch, and people were told to avoid sweets. Research has shown that sugar is okay for people with diabetes if it is part of a meal plan. It is substituted for other carbohydrate foods. Certain carbohydrates are absorbed at different rates, but when combined with other foods in a meal, this effect can be hard to predict. Focus on the total amount of carbohydrates that you can eat rather than on whether it comes from starch or sugar.

Certain factors affect the way your blood glucose responds to sugars and starches. When you eat sweets, observe whether other foods are eaten at the same time, how quickly you eat, how the food was prepared, and the amount of protein and fat in the food. Measure your blood glucose 1-2 hours after eating and note the effect sugar has on it. Use this information to make decisions about including sweets in your meal plan.

Format: Paperback
This is written for the layperson. It's also geared towards people who have just learned they have diabetes or have been told they are in the pre-diabetic stage. The title says it all.
The book is divided into 170 short chapters dealing with living well while having either Type I or Type II diabetes. Some of the best information in this book is how to find & set up your own diabetes health care management team, where to find new discoveries & treatments, what kinds of foods to eat, explanations of fats & proteins, & so much more.
This is a good book for the beginner who is new to this disease. It should be handed out by Drs. as they are telling their patients that they have been diagnosed with diabetes.

It was not what I expected. I wanted more information on certain symptoms,etc., rather that short questions and answers.

Format: Paperback
This slim book is just what the doctor ordered. Instead of reading too much information you can just go to the chapter that addresses your question and get the answer. The format is Q&A with all questions grouped into chapters and each question is answered succinctly and charts are indexed as well. I found this to be perfect when I was newly diagnosed. published by the American Diabetes Association (ADA), your doctor will probably agree with this informsation. Perfect for when i wondered "Wait a second, what about carbs...?", etc.

Easy to read. Even though I am nursing student this book is easily understood in layman s terms. My husband was recently diagnosed with diabetes and I needed a resource to help him understand this disease.
