Our expert says:
If you are a type 2 diabetic with kidney problems, then it is imperative that you should be under the guidance of a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). From what you say, it is evident that you have not been assessed by a dietitian and you have not had an individual diabetic diet prescription worked out for you so far. This is vitally important because the diet you use is one of the most important factors in treatment. The dietitian will have to tailor the diet to also make provision for your kidney problems - this is not something I can do for you over the Internet.
So please see a dietitian ASAP
