Glad the flush was effective. Given your mention of blood Sugar issues, I wanted to mention that potato soup and cornbread for dinner is heavy on the carbs, light on fiber and low in protein. Not the best choices for stablizing blood sugar.
You might consider looking into "low glycemix load" foods. This is related to the glycemic index of the food, normalized by the number of carbs. Glycemic index tells how rapidly the human body metabolizes a given food, as measured by the spike in blood Sugar after eating 100 grams of that food.
For example, a carrot has a high glycemic index but 100 grams of carrot has so few carbs that it carries a low glycemic load. A snickers bar has a medium glycemic index, but 100 grams has lots of carbs, so it creates a high glycemic load.
In general, carbs that contain protein, fiber and/or fat provide lower glycemic load than refined carbs (peeled potatos, white flour, degerminated cornmeal). Whole grains, vegetables, legumes -- not a surprising list. The liver regulates insulin, so the lower the glycemic load, the less for the liver to do.
