The numbers that I get from 3 to 5 reading I take everyday. However, I cannot come close to getting the majic numbers like 5, 6, and 7. I call these numbers as Majic Numbers because the best sugar controlled number are 5, 6, 7 and 8 as well. I will appreciate your beautiful answer. Thanks.

Hi salimdost - It's nice to know that you'd like to be sure that you're eating healthy foods. Fruits and vegetables are going to help, but I'm sure you know that there is much more to following a healthy eating plan for Type II diabetes.

Here's a couple of links to diet information that I think will help you, with some great tips about your overall eating patterns. https://www.empowher.com/media/reference/1200-calorie-diabetic-diet


Good luck to you!
