Blood type diet vegan

Common Questions and Answers about Blood type diet vegan


Avatar n tn 1 your average blood sugars are close to 140. Bottom line with Type 2 diabetes is that your body cannot handle carbs like it could before. The solution then is to increase your body's sensitivity to insulin (Metformin will help with that, as will exercise and weight loss), and to dramatically reduce your carb intake. With a vegan diet it will be very challenging to reduce your carbs sufficiently. When we look at diet there are essential things to eat and non-essential.
Avatar f tn Since diet plays a part in heart disease I have been on a strict Vegan diet assuming that animal fat or bi-products are clogging my arteries. I began this diet in January of this year. Can anyone comment on this? I would like to know if anyone has tried this diet and had success. Any input or opinions would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn I've been vegan for a year now. I recently got blood test results back and while not as high as it used to be, my cholesterol is still high (both HDL and LDL). Part of it is hereditary (from my dad). I am a 19 year old male, vegan, and I get regular exercise. I have no other health conditions. Is there anything I can do to lower my cholesterol? Why is it still high? Thanks.
Avatar m tn Prior to treating, I tried several diets. The Zone-type diet, which seems similar to what you advocate, balances out protein, fat and carbs in a 30, 30, 40 ratio. The carbs are all low on the glycemic index, not allowing starches, etc, except in very small quantities. The good carbs are most fructose based, a la fruits. The other diet was the Pritrikin diet which was basically a very low fat diet -- under 10 per cent of total calories.
Avatar m tn I started the Paleo diet in March and have lost a total of 25 pounds. My blood sugar and blood pressure have both dropped back into range. And, until I started treatment, I was feeling the best that I've felt in years. I'm doing about 90% Paleo... I do love my yogurt... but I figure 90% is better than nothing. Never really cared too much for red meat, but sure miss pasta.
Avatar n tn I ate a vegetarian diet, then vegan for a long time for health reasons - it really did help with fatigue and aches and pains. Now I eat close to a vegetarian diet but am not as rigid about it. I was in france for a while for work and felt wonderful - because what I was eating was so fresh and natural??? Maybe. I dont eat a lot of protein - I dont measure, but whole grains and veggies make up most of my plate. There are tons of resources and great recipes out there.
1637739 tn?1371692306 Who knows though, I may have had a much worse attack or maybe more of them... if I hadn't been on that type of diet. I've definitely had more relapses, since reverting to the Standard American Diet... Thanks for the question. It's got me thinking about my diet again.
Avatar f tn She also recommended going on the blood type diet, which for his blood type, as we were going through the lists of things he shouldn't eat on that diet, every single one was a food he reacted to in some form before. Now we are doing a combination of the blood type and MS recovery diet, and guess what, yesterday he was chasing his Dad (who is perfectly healthy) around the yard, and beat him in a race. he's still a bit stumbly at times, especially when tired, but doing this is working for us.
Avatar f tn Currently, I take 15 units of Lantus, and Humalog on a sliding scale. I am a vegetarian, mostly vegan, and eat a diet based on a large amount of fruits and vegetables and hardly any refined foods (maybe whole grains 2 or 3 times a week, no refined sugars, etc.) I have always been physically active, but recently lost a lot of weight (I was out of the country and didn't have food), which seemed to make me more insulin-sensitive.
Avatar n tn How long would it take to see the benefits of my new fish diet? 2. Are vegetarians relly very sick people? 3. Can poor diet (like mine) and loads of stress make the body feel weak? The problem with me now, is that I cannot simply walk - my pulse goes around 100 - 120 beats per minute. Thank you very much for your answer. I am a Russian lady living in New Zealand. This is where all my problems have begun........
Avatar n tn I am not a doctor, am only repeating what some physicians and/or clinics/hospitals have posted online in various capacities- Pernicious Anemia has been linked with the following medical conditions, based on several different articles that are available online-a Vegan diet, Pyridoxine Dependancy, Lyme Disease, Cirrhosis, Hepatitis, HIV/AIDS, Cyanide Poisoning, Cobalt Deficiency/Toxicity, Wilson's Disease, Celiac Sprue, EBV, HPV, and Hypothyroidism.
483733 tn?1326802046 I am a type o, which according to Peter D Adamo writer of the Blood Type Diet, means I do better with meat, and do not tolerate gluten so well. I found this to be true for might help to check this book out. I do think that there were some good points made in the Lupus diet. Sugar for instance should not be eaten in excess, or processed foods, and cleansing is very important. Cleansing should be the first step.
Avatar f tn Things I will try to help the healing process, getting tested for leaky gut first, if positive then I will do a colon cleanse, probiotics, drinking 1 to 2 teaspoons in moderation of unpasturized raw apple cider vineger mixed with water, taking vitamins, sticking with my vegan diet, and going back on my digestive enzymes. Hope everyone is doing well. Responses to this posts and my other posts are highly encouraged. God bless.
Avatar m tn That is very important, a lot of people are allergic to salt and don't know it. When I cut salt from my diet my blood pressure responded immediately. - It means reading ALL the labels and never buying anything with above about 50 - 100grms of salt. Change your doctor and ask for a diuretic, they are about the safest to reduce blood pressure, it will make you pee a lot but it will reduce the pressure almost immediately.
Avatar m tn But you can always experiment on yourself with any diet -- whether that be food combining, blood type, zone type diets, whatever, there's a million out there. Vegetarian, vegan, raw, animal protein, macrobiotics, these are all diets that are popular and help some people and not others.
Avatar f tn That is probably a better way to look at it. I am on the Dr. McDoughall diet which is very healthy non fat vegan diet. You can look at the testimonials on the website and discussions about how well people have done with their cholesterol, weight , lowering inflammation, etc. Why do you message me and I'll send you the link if you are interested.
Avatar f tn I finally decided that it must have something to do with my diet even though that made no sense to me because I am a very healthy vegan. I decided to try the elimination diet and I feel like that may have helped a bit at first, but it would just keep coming back. Next I decided to try the Candida diet. This probably offered me the most success out of anything. I basically ate vegetables and nuts for a couple months.
Avatar n tn On one occasion I asked Dr. DeAdamo (Eat right for your blood type) and was told to take bioflavonoids for it. I am beginning to take the supplement now, since the vessel popping has become too annoying to ignore.
Avatar n tn My LMP was around November 10, 2005. Ever since then I've been having headaches, backaches, stomach cramps, nausea & vomiting, sweats, nipple discharge, and CM. I went to the doctor and my nipple discharge was in fact milk. I've taken several HPT and they all have come back negative. I have had 2 blood tests which both beta hCG came back as <2 mIU/mL. My prolactin level went from 5.9 to 8.7 ng/mL in a week. I have heard that some womens hCG cant be detected for a couple months.
Avatar n tn It worked good for me. As far as diet I started with the Swank diet but think the Paleo Diet has shown more success in threating neurological diseases. As far as the dental thing I had 10 root canals and an assortment of fillings. My gums were bleeding and that was clearly a problem in my case. Everyone must decide this issue for theirself because this is a major decision. I have some information concerning this issue that I will post.
Avatar f tn If you don't eat much red meat or you follow a vegetarian or vegan diet, take a multivitamin with iron. And, to be on the safe side, ask your healthcare provider to test your blood for anemia at your preconception checkup. Be leery of listeria Listeria is a harmful bacterium found in ready-to-eat meats, soft cheeses, and unpasteurized dairy products. Pregnant women are 20 times more likely than other healthy adults to get sick from eating listeria-laced food.
Avatar m tn Hi, and sorry you have a moderately high blood sugar, and triglycerides. These things can definitely be controlled by diet and exercise (provided the blood sugar problem is not genetic. Drinking alcohol and not exercising will raise your triglycerides. Also eating junk food and a lot of sugary foods can raise your blood sugar too. You sound like you are normally vegetarian? or eat better? Are your blood sugar values and triglycerides usually normal? If so get back on your normal diet.
Avatar f tn Hi all. I'm a 56 year old female and I was diagnosed a few months ago with type II. Not too bad. AC1 of 6.4. Doc says if I lose weight and change lifestyle I can probably be diabetes free. Lost 17 lbs. Last AC1 was still 6.3. Was cheating a lot with candy and sugary stuff. So he put me on Metformin 500mg 2x a day. I have to say that taking that did make me feel a lot better.
Avatar f tn I'm just a bit concerned as well. I think my diet has something to do it with possibly, I am vegan (for over a year now), and a rather unhealthy vegan. I barely eat at all, maybe a bowl of pasta a day. I don't take vitamins or any type of supplements for my health. I was just wondering if anyone thinks this would be a contributing factor? or what could cause my period to be like this? Any feedback would be great! Thanks.
Avatar f tn Gamma knife, called a bloodless surgery was performed and the tumor shrunk and now remains stable. Also, since you are doing a vegan diet now, have you made sure your body's iron & ferritin levels have not dropped with blood testing? Iron deficiency can cause headache. Is your blood pressure consistently lower?
Avatar n tn Barnard's team and colleagues at George Washington University, the University of Toronto and the University of North Carolina tested 99 people with type-2 diabetes, assigning them randomly to either a low-fat, low-sugar vegan diet or the standard American Diabetes Association diet.
Tbd Seems to me diabetes is reversible However its very hard to do Eat right, control your weight and exercise. Many doctors strongly recommend a vegan diet, especially Neal Bernard MD.
