I have just learned recently that I’m diabetic. I need to know how many carbs can I have in a day. Let me see if I have this right, carbs are pasta, rice potoes, bread and popcorn. Please help I am so confused.

I would encourage you to consult with a Registered Dietitian or a Certified Diabetes Educator, who can help you with meal planning based on your individual needs, including medications you may be taking. Your physician should be able to recommend someone or refer you to an outpatient department at a local hospital. You can also find a registered dietitian at www.eatright.org.
