Our expert says:
I am sorry to hear about your diabetes and very high stress levels. You need to do two things: a) Please for your own sake consult a clinical 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). The dietitian will work out a diet prescription for you based on your highly individual requirements and your medication. Discuss the need for solutions when you are stressed. b) It is also essential that you consult a clinical psychologist (ask your gp to refer you) so that you can be taught so-called biofeedback therapy. With this type of therapy you will be taught how to control your stress levels and to stop exacerbating the situation. You urgently need the assistance of these experts so go for help.
