After advancing to insulin and gaining more weight, developing hypertension and back problems, I had a gastric bypass. No insulin, no hypertension, minor back problems.

I know more than a few people with Type 2 who had gastric bypass and their "diabetic numbers" disappeared way ahead of significant weight loss. It leads me to wonder about metabolic syndrome and hormones and a lot of complex interactions, since other forms of bariatric surgery/restriction don't have the same effect that I know of. Congratulations on regaining health!

Thanks. Yes, my surgeon said that the hormones in the 3 ft of intestine that is removed contain most of the hormnes infkuencing glucose handling. They theorize that section also contains most of the hormones that affect taste as most of us have changes in taste after the surgery.

Boy, this has turned into a hot topic Sorry to hear the news of your health issues Southern Belle I use to be such a good vegetarian at one time and now to be diagnosed with being pre-diabetic is beyond me that would even happen. I have slacked and maybe that is the reason, or my genes could be the issue too. I had my blood work done last week and will go in tomorrow to see the doctor of my results of my blood work. I have a feeling all might be up since I had the night before the blood work some sweet potato fries that I baked in the oven with a bit too much oil

You might be ok since sweet potatoes are low glycemic and oil does nothing to your blood sugar.

I don't know if this will help, it has helped me. I had a thread on here where I attached a zip file that is a excel spreadsheet of carbs in most all foods. You can find it here.
Carbohydrates, please read

Thanks for the info, which I just skimmed thru. I have an app on my phone which I found which is really good. Plus there is a website too. I can track my carbs of everything which is easy. Then again sometimes when I scan an item it can't find it. Like the ice-cream I just ate. I was under 200 carbs today and now it is over most likely.

Ice cream? So you are not really serious about this?
