    My problem with diabetes is when I eat like I'm supposed to my sugar drops way low. Once it was low as 49. I want to lose weight but it seems I have to keep eating peanut butter crackers way too often. I don't even like peanut butter. Eating healthy is a challenge when it comes to low blood sugar. Suggestions?

    Are you still taking your medicine for diabetes? I read somewhere that you have to talk to you regular doctor regarding being on your pre - op diet so your meds are adjusted appropriately. My mom is diabetic...49 Is dangerously low!

    Hi. I am no longer on diabetes meds. When I was taking metformin it was because my sugar was high. Then when it started going low, my doc took me off. It still goes low without it. I guess I have to eat more often throughout the day to keep it balanced.
