It sounds like you have a lot going on with your health. I would recommend that you find a doctor or a certified diabetes educator that can help you with your insulin and blood sugars. Once you have done this, I would next visit your local Hy-Vee dietitian and they will be able to guide you with your food choices to help get your diabetes under control.
