There are already plenty of carbs with the regular mashed potatoes. I don't need to add to it. Guar gum worked out terrifically, I couldn't tell the differenceI just think some carbs are needed in your diet. So thickening the gravy with a little flour or cornstarch should be okay. .
That was his opinion last year. LOL. No doctor to ask in this situation (he insists that his cardiologist manage the diabetes and the card isn't managing on that level), and except for the first couple months hubby has refused to do any home glucose monitoring so he has zero idea how foods or food combinations are affecting him. His A1c isn't too bad, but it doesn't tell you anything about swings.Ask the Doctor. If he is doing a fairly good job of modifying his diet ... once or twice a year won't poison him and he deserves a treat.
That's what I did last year and it turned into a major fight. He didn't want any modifications. Of course, after the meal he volunteered that it was all excellent.there are many, many Thanksgiving menu's modified for diabetics on line.
