The low-carb desserts or snacks you find here at Just Desserts for Diabetics have been tested to see if they will raise blood sugar. The problem I have encountered is ...most people tend to eat more than a normal serving. I know it is hard not to eat more than what we should but it puts your health at risk. Please try to have only one serving at a time. Be sure to test your blood sugar when you try something new so you will know if it is right for you.
