Oatmeal blood sugar spike

Common Questions and Answers about Oatmeal blood sugar spike


Avatar f tn These are the foods that cause your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spike</span>. Concentrate on green veggies, salads, proteins like chicken, fish, red meat, nuts. They say whole grains and oatmeal are good for you, but I don't agree as they also can cause blood sugar spikes. If you want something sweet, Atkins bars are delicious and they won't spike your blood sugar. Good luck to you!
Avatar f tn The sweetness/healthiness of your milkshake depends on the ingredients. If you're using ice cream, then yes, it will be really sweet and not at all healthy. Why not try a protein shake, rather than a milkshake? Try a scoop of vanilla protein powder with 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup water, 1 cup frozen fruit chunks... blend and enjoy. Protein will keep you feeling fuller longer and it won't spike your blood sugar like a regular milkshake will do.
Avatar f tn 3. I am so confused. How could my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spike</span> when I was really watching what I ate, hardly any carbs at all. I do not think I have been taking in 800 calories a day. Could I have put my body in shock from such a restrictive diet? Up to my 2nd blood test I did not eat any meat, had oatmeal for breakfast - a can of sardines at 11:00 am (or low fat cottage cheese & an avacado) and 2 pieces of fish for a late lunch, and soup at night with a salad.
Avatar n tn For example-- things like breads, potatoes, pasta, crackers, white rice, etc [foods made with white flour], can cause a drastic rise in your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> if you aren't careful. [They are converted to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> after you eat them]. Other foods/drinks to avoid [example; dairy milk, fruit juices, energy drinks, Vitamin water] can also cause blood sugar to rise [so serving sizes and moderation are important].
Avatar n tn my blood pressure 160/110 mg/dl I went to my Doctor and gave me glucophage and I returned to my previous diet and I have a 0 urine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> level <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> pressure 140 /93 mmHg . but my Fbg becomes highest in the morning and lowest at bed time 260 FBG morning and 180 mg/dl at bed time. ( I am on 0 carb diet and I lost so far 10 kgs of my weight.
Avatar m tn For diabetics, their body does not respond to the elevated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> glucose adequately. They need to control their <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> with changes to diet and exercise and often medication. Do you take any medications for your blood glucose? If you do not understand what changes you need to make, you should speak to your doctor about what is recommended for you specifically. Your doctor may have a sample diet menu or be able to recommend a nutritionist to help you understand the proper diet.
Avatar n tn I made some changes to my diet, started walking almost every day, made sure that I was drinking water more frequently and upon a friend's suggestion stopped taking the pill for diabetes. In the subsequent two <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> test over a period of six months, my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> levels were normal. During my next visit, I confessed to the doctor I stopped taking the diabetes pill. The doctor was not overly surprised and was happy that my sugar levels were under control.
10161345 tn?1408906212 At 27 weeks I'm struggling to keep my blood sugar up/stable between what foods are and aren't recommended during pregnancy combined with what my flare-prevention diet allows. Never mind my terror over the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spike</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> that my impending gtt is holding over my head- I really don't want to get misdiagnosed with gestational diabetes just to completely crash on the way home. Anyone with a similar issue have any advice?
Avatar f tn Then I discovered it was worse after eating sugar. So I had an oral glucose tolerance test done in January. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> was a little high, but not diabetic (around 130). My doc said I was borderline diabetic and to eat small meals low in carbs high in protein. I did this and also cut out all refined sugars and carbs. I can't even eat high sugar fruits, I mainly just have berries. When cutting out sugar I wasn't thirsty all the time, and I was less dizzy.
Avatar n tn which all seem to really <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spike</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>. I usually have one slice of whole grain bread a day. Checked my BS this am before my breakfast - 14.1, only a handful of unsalted peanuts at 9pm last night. Breakfast - oatmeal with milk, an egg, half a Mandarin orange and coffee. Will check in a couple of hours and see what's what. And I have wondered if I have not been diabetic for a long, long time and perhaps that no matter how hard I try, meds may be what I need to do.
1290943 tn?1272097364 I also seem to have a lower tolerance for carbs in the morning. Cereals always <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spike</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>. I prefer scrambled eggs with sauteed onions. Limit the morning carbs. Cereals are generally bad news, though she may want to experiment with things like oatmeal, which maybe slower digested. FOr all of us it's a matter of experimenting. Working out how many carbs we can handle and what foods work for us. Eat and test and then modify diet until targets can be reached.
Avatar f tn I do not eat any sugar or foods containing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>. I eat a lot of veg and salad. Bran flakes for breakfast. It has improved my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> levels. But not enough as i need it to. What helps you?
Avatar f tn I have GD and I meet with a nurse about every 2 weeks or so to go over my meal log. They would like me to eat 30-45 grams of carbs for breakfast, 15-30 for snacks in between meals, 45-60 for lunch and 45-60 for dinner. There are a bunch of veggies and some other foods that are considered "free foods" meaning they don't spike your blood sugar at all and someone will go over all of that with you. Avoid soda, cereal, and sweets as they tend to cause a spike.
Avatar m tn I went and bought a meter (the relion prime) because I feel that bad, well if i have allot of carbs like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oatmeal</span> or subway i <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spike</span> at 150-160 then fall down to 70-mid 80's.. normal readings for high carb intake.. well fasting blood sugar has been as low at 67 some days, when i had lab check ups i ate two pancakes before getting blood drawn for complete blood panel etc.. well my glucose on that was 68 and i had the pancakes 1 hour before.
Avatar m tn BTW. I used to be a personal trainer. If you are weight training for 2 hours a day and concerned with diabetes, I'd change your split and do about 1 hour a day. After an hour of heavy weight training, your testosterone will lower, and cortisol will raise to give you energy. Cortisol screws with insulin, and raises glucose levels. So if you eat a revovery meal after with carbs, and that cortisol is still in your systems, it will spike blood sugar.
Avatar m tn Don't give up the splurges, change to things that don't <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spike</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>. Meats are likely ok. Nuts. etc. 1 piece of pizza instead of 3 - or learn to make low carb pizza instead of buying it out.
Avatar f tn Avoid fruit, except for one serving/day, or any simple carbs that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spike</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>, which, in turn spikes insulin levels. This will help with weight loss, which will help with the symptoms of PCOS. Here's a link to the other thread: http://www.medhelp.
8650265 tn?1421569013 dont know if your a coffee drinker but its fine as long as you dont put <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> in it. (it actually helps regulate <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> sugars) protien is important try and incorporate it with every meal and snack if possible.
Avatar n tn If they are not *whole grain* (eg whole grain bread and brown rice) you are missing the fiber and many other vital nutrients found in complex carbs, and practically guaranteeing a rapid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spike</span> in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>. For breakfast, add a tablespoon of nut butter (almond butter is more nutritious and more easily digested vs. peanut butter) to your whole grain toast, or a slice or two of lean turkey bacon or turkey sausage. What about eggs? They are an excellent inexpensive protein source.
Avatar m tn Fasting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>: 79 1hr <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>: 81 2hr blood sugar: 71 At that point I had been feeling very similar symptoms. My doctor said my pancreas may be overproducing insulin, particularly because he expected higher numbers after 1 and 2 hours. Changing my diet and engaging in more exercise eventually eliminated the symptoms. Since that point, I've lost nearly 14 lbs, mostly due to dietary changes due to gastroparesis (post viral idiopathic; this has since started to clear).
Avatar n tn For instance breakfast cereal, even <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oatmeal</span>, low-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> stuff--instantly turns into <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>. White breads do too etc. You need complex carbos (whole grain) and you need to always combine protein in every meal (eggs, cheese, meat, nuts). You get dizzy if you spike too high. I don't know why if you are 'border' line they don't just give the monitor so you can do the diet and KNOW if you are okay.
335728 tn?1331418012 If you immediately feel better after eating something, then it is likely that your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> was low. The worst triggers of these episodes are foods that cause a big spike in insulin production. The reason for this is that some foods, like sugary things, cause rapid rise of the blood sugar. In the normal person this cause the body to secrete a burst of insulin to bring the blood sugar down by making it available to the cells as fuel. This is the main role of insulin.
Avatar f tn The fruit salad is probably not such a good idea for every meal/snack, because fruit contains a lot of sugar, even though it's a natural <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>. When you eat things with that much <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>, it causes your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> to spike, which in turn causes your pancreas to pump out insulin. Whatever sugar you don't use up right away, is shuttled by the insulin, right into fat cells. Protein and fat are what make you feel satisfied and keep you feeling fuller longest.
808221 tn?1242747788 The higher the rating on the index, the more rapid the increase in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> level. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spike</span> doesn’t last very long and is followed by a corresponding fast drop in blood-sugar level. (often it drops even lower than it was before we ate). This is commonly referred to as the “spike and crash syndrome.” Make sense? So, Gus, the bottom line is to pay attention to what you eat. The unfortunate part of diabetes is we have to give up and avoid many foods we once ate.
15298662 tn?1439720697 What you want to do is to keep your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> levels stable and not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spike</span> up and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spike</span> down too low. This is what happens when you eat refined carbohydrates, fruit juices, fizzy drinks. I would still suggest that you make an appointment to see your doctor and ask if he arrange for you to have a glucose test. This will show whether you do have diabetes.
Avatar f tn I am learning to juggle my diet so my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> doesn't <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spike</span> (from starving myself) - my morning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> reading has always been under 125 since I have started testing, but my A1C is high. My last blood test was the end of December (7.3) - and when it was 6.9 I was eating whatever I wanted (before dieting). My blood sugar 2 hours after eating is usually under 125 too....I testing my blood the other day: 89 and a minute later -- 95 and then another minute later 111.
1236893 tn?1408490528 Honey, packed with beneficial compounds like quercetin, which has been shown to aid athletic endurance and ward off depression—two very good things for your penis. Honey also has a less dramatic impact on your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> levels than regular <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>, so it won't send your body into fat-storage mode the way sugar can. but don't go overboard; the sweet nectar has 17 g of sugar and 64 calories per tablespoon, so too much honey can make you heavy, rather than horny.
1236893 tn?1408490528 What Is Cholesterol? We may associate cholesterol with fatty foods, but most of the waxy substance is made by our own bodies. The liver produces 75% of the cholesterol that circulates in our blood. The other 25% comes from food. At normal levels, cholesterol actually plays an important role in helping cells do their jobs. But cholesterol levels are precariously high in more than 100 million Americans.
Avatar f tn The problem with dry food and diabetes is tha certain grains cause a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spike</span> and then drop which is hard to regulate blood glucose between meals for diabetes. This is more of a problem with lower grade food that uses high level of grains in their foods. Human diabetic patients need to limit carbohydrates to gain the best control of their disease. There are some grains that are much better and those include oatmeal, barley and rye.
Avatar f tn it is important to eat and drink. you will wind up in the hospital hooked to iv tubes to treat dehydration. small sips every 10 minutes. suck on ice chips if necessary. drink ginger ale, small sips.
