If I Have This Glucose Intolerance, What Can I Eat

If I am glucose intolerant, how much sugar can I eat or do I need to cut it out entirely? Also, what is an acceptable level of salt intake if my blood pressure is elevated?

Hello! Carbohydrates is what you have to pay attention too. Click here, it will take you to our diabetic diet section. You will learn about carb counting, meal exchange and how to manage your weight. There is one thing I learned about being a diabetic, moderation is the key. Don't quote me on this but the salt intake I was told should be about 1,800 grams a sodium per day. If you think about it, that's not much. Talk to your Physician or nutritionist, they will be able to tell you what the recommended amount of sodium should be. If you have any more questions, let me know.
