Common Questions and Answers about American diabetes association glycemic index


Avatar n tn We mainly deal with type 1 on this site, as that is what we volunteers have life-experience with. The glycemic index of the foods that we eat affect all of us, with or without either type of diabetes so I checked around on the internet and found that the website for The American Diabetes Association (they focus on type 2 diabetes for the most part), has quite a few informational articles that you should find helpful if you do a search on "glycemic index". Their website is www.
Avatar n tn Fasting Blood sugar level of: 99 and below-Normal 100 to 125-Pre-diabetes (impaired fasting glucose) 126 and above Diabetes* if blood sugar is high the first test, the test is repeated for reproducibility and then the diagnosis can be made. one can also do an oral glucose tolerance test for a diagnosis of diabetes. Hemoglobin A1c (the 3 month weighted average of blood sugar) is not a diagnostic criteria for diabetes but it does tell you your risk factor.
Avatar f tn Regarding nutrition, you might want to take a look at info on glycemic index. White bread and rice, for example, have higher glycemic indices than refined sugar, and I know from experience that my numbers shoot way up after eating Chinese food, which unfortunately I adore. Also, stay away from "diabetic" or "sugar free" pastries, because the flour alone is as bad as the absent sugar. In other words, such products are usually a scam.
Avatar f tn Aim for the lower number, common sense says the higher you go the potential for long term harm exists. Finally, I no longer follow the ADA [American Diabetes Association] recommendations nor suggest their guidelines. The ADA is now sponsored by major drug firms. Its kinda like the fox watching over the chicken coop.

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that people aim for a BMI of between 18.5 and 24.9 however most Americans have a BMI well above this range.
446049 tn?1538871187 It is listed on my lab reports from the local hospital. I also checked on the American Diabetes Association site and found the same numbers. I also spoke with my oncologist who checked and got back to me that those numbers were indeed what the normal range should be for A1C (4.3 to 6.1) and that I need to come down a point.
Avatar n tn Hi, I happened to recently read somewhere that the ADA (American Diabetes Association) claims that diabetics should have at least 130 mg of carbs per day. (In fact, this goes for everyone, even non-diabetics) (This already breaks the Atkins diet.) In another place i read that recent study's show, that for the brain to function properly, one must have at least 130 mg of carbs per day.
Avatar m tn Experimental Diabetes Treatment Shows Promise Stephanie Doyle May 19, 2008 (Orlando, Florida) — New research monitoring the effects of islet cell transplantation resulted in near-normal metabolic control and decreased hypoglycemia, according to the findings presented here at American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists 17th Annual Meeting and Clinical Congress.
568322 tn?1370169040 WHY EVERYBODY SHOULD READ THIS....... In cellular metabolism, glucose (sugar) can be converted into fatty acids. Many viruses use these fatty acids to build their viral envelopes, or outer coatings, which help the viruses penetrate and infect human cells. When the Hepatitis C virus gets into your body, it tries to increase your metabolism so that it can reproduce more quickly by using fatty acids to build protective outer coatings which will help it penetrate and infect your liver cells.
728239 tn?1265140927 are constrained by Managed Care to spend a limited time with you and to share with you only the information that is approved by the ADA (American Diabetes Association) and the AMA (American Medical Association). Because things change at a snail's pace, many of the official information put out by these organizations is many year's behind. Read and do your homework and talk to other more experienced diabetics on several excellent websites.
390388 tn?1279639813 A fasting glucose level of 150 is very, very high, and 200 is almost off the chart I suggest you go to the American Diabetes Association and look at their information. Best wishes.
Avatar f tn The more you buy, the more profit drug firms make. Here is how the the ADAG [American Diabetes Association Guideline] formula to convert ones A1c to eAG [estimated Average Glucose], or what your daily average glucose has been for the past 3 months. 28.7 X A1c – 46.7 = eAG An example of this is an A1c of 6%. The calculation for this would be: 28.7 X 6 – 46.7 = 126 mg/dl for an estimated average glucose of 126 mg/dl. As you will see, 126 mg/dl is the beginning point of t2 diabetes.
Avatar f tn The Atkins bars all say 'low glycemic index' so I never questioned those. I'm just surprised that after giving up a diet packed with simple carbs and processed foods for a diet that I perceived to be almost carb free, that my sugar would go up. Another explanation could be that it is in my brother has had diabetes for the past 20 years, my maternal grandmother had it, and my fraternal twin has an A1c that hovers around 6.1. Thanks again...
14471348 tn?1434691192 Search for the complete glycemic index online (I would go easy on high fructose foods-which are lower on the G.I) --Grains/carbs/gluten intolerance Look into Gliadin test (urine), by Cyrex Labs. They test 12 forms-not just the alpha ordered by most doctors- of gliadins regarding gluten intolerance (not necessarily only digestive and perhaps not immediate). Now they can also test which part of the body is affected. My suspicion in your case is Digestive/GI and/or Brain/Neurological.
Avatar f tn Aims (1) To assess the association of diabetes mellitus (DM) in HCV patients to the severity of hepatic fibrosis and to the response to antiviral treatment. (2) To assess the safety of pegylated interferon and ribavirin combination therapy (Peg IFN/RBV) in diabetic HCV patients. Methods HCV diabetics (n = 61) were identified. A 2:1 matching control group was used to identify independent factors of advanced fibrosis and treatment failure.
393685 tn?1425816122 an entirely strick diet of no gluten 2. a low glycemic-index diet similiar to what diabetic patients do in their nutrition intake To make it clear on potential participators, this would NOT be an alternative to what your doctors are treating you with.

Avatar m tn And an insulin of 12 is high. And a HOMA of 3 means you're insulin resistant. And according to the American Diabetes Association, a fasting blood sugar of 103 is considered pre-diabetes. Results between 100 and 125 are considered "Impaired Fasting Glucose" "Nearly one in four adults over the age of 25 has either diabetes or a condition known as PRE-DIABETES (in which blood glucose is higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as Type 2 diabetes).
Avatar m tn Similar recommendations to eat fewer animal products and more plants foods have been made by every other health organization, including the Senate Select Committee on Nutrition, American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society, The Diabetic Association, and the American Dietetic Association.
Avatar m tn I understand your feelings, but as you note, we disagree on many points. Others far more qualified than I am have pointed out the many flaws in JUPITER. I noted several, but there are issues with the approach, the population and the funders, as well as those I noted. For a complete critique, see And there are many others. The J stands for "justification," which is a strange objective for an honest study.
280891 tn?1261016650 Of coarse I am going to say the same thing because that is what the problem is. The drugs will cover up the sympthoms but eventually the body will have to get rid of this drug. I explained to you that many of the drugs that the FDA approved have latter been determined toxic and removed from the market. The FDA reports the level of Tylenol is too high and is causing liver failure in some people. What if you were one of the people who couldn't tolerate the level and died of liver failure?
948349 tn?1294383837 Mind you what you are eating may affect your acne ONLY in the sense of it's glycemic index. A high glycemic index food such as pop or chips will spike your blood glucose levels very quickly causing a necessary surge of insulin to be released by your pancreas in order to absorb the glucose... The hormone insulin may affect your sebaceous glands. So in a sense... diet does affect your acne... but not as some people portray it to...
