I just noticed on WebMD answers, the question--is oatmeal good for diabetes and was very surprised that doctor Dansinger recommends cold cereal but not oatmeal.

Every morning for breakfast I have a big bowl of Quaker Old Fashioned oats with half a jar of Paul Newman Mild Salsa (lowest sodium salsa I could find). Sometimes for my forth meal at around 8 in the evening I have a big bowl of oatmeal as I did last night and the night before. This morning my blood sugar was 76 and the day before the fasting was 74, My HbA1c is 5.4, I suspect it will be lower next time it is checked because of a bit more weight loss. I am on no meds and have been T2 for more than 20 years. However, I eat no added fats, meat, dairy eggs or refined foods and I think his admonition to eat no fats if you eat starches is a good one.
