I'm type 2 Diabetic, tablet 'controlled'. I had one of the pills increased from 3 a day to 4 a day and now 3 months on, my blood sugar?

Likewise no rice or pasta so what do I eat to replace potatoes??? Brown bread, but not white bread? And so on - do I just STOP EATING!! I am seeing a regional D Nurse next month.
Update: Thanks Jackie - After all these years with diabetes, I'm STILL confused about my readings, and what I 'should' eat.

Update 2: @ Amy Lynn How I wish somebody here had given me the very detailed information given here. If I could give you more than 5 *, I would. I've been flounding around for many many years now, since I was diagnosed. I've had regular D.Clinics but never your kind of info.
