Jenny, thanks!
I'd been researching, but that's the best one I've seen. I'm going to take this quote seriously:
But if you wait for a diabetes diagnosis before taking action, it is often too late. By the time your fasting blood sugar has reached 126 mg/dl (7.0 mmol/L) (the level at which most doctors will diagnose you) at least half of your beta cells may be dead and they may not be able to regenerate.

I'm going to follow their plan of using the post-meal glucose readings to determine which foods I can eat and how much of them. So far my beloved sushi rice is not looking good.
