I've been eating whatever fruits I want, not worring about in season, b/c nothing is in season here. I have had melons, papaya, banana, berries, citrus, apples. I have had some honey and raw coco beans. Basically, I'm living the high life. I'm feeling ok just taking a little more insulin. I'm having some with every meal so my bs is pretty stable.
Being very low carb dropped my bs and insulin briefly, but it would creep up. I think partly b/c I ate bigger portions, with a fruit on my plate I have wanted less food. I don't need the really full sensation to be done. I was taking .70 units / hr when I started eating fruit more and now I'm take .85- not a big change. I'm hoping rest will decreas my need a bit more.
I was getting depressed - feeling that I would never heal diabetes. Depression is bad news. I need hope so I change things up. A new plan has helped. I hadn't had high meat in a while. I forgot my high fish in my jar in fridge- I hadn't aired it in soong I just tossed it. High meat is good for my mood, so being without was not. I will make more soon and I'm getting a large cut of fresh beef that I will keep open in my fridge so maybe those bacteria will be mood enhancing.
More answer than question, but the fruit change was a big choice for me. At some point I'm thinking of going very low carb with low portion size and hoping that the big drop in carb gradient will let my body come off insulin long enough to heal pancreas. All of these things are long shots but they keep me going strong.
