Can too much protein raise blood sugar

Common Questions and Answers about Can too much protein raise blood sugar


Avatar m tn Hi, Respectfully , I disagree with the theory that high protein diet will raise BG. The reason that your BG raise after you eat the so called High protein bars because actually those bars contain a fairly large amount of sugar which obviously will raise your BG. Please double check the amount of sugar in those bars. I eat so much protein all days long, and I have NEVER have my BG raised. My hbA1C is consistenly less than 5.
Avatar n tn I under stand sugar bad !to much to fast bad! can eny one break the rest of that down I am typ2 diabetic stag 4 liver so do I have extra liver problems because sugar level some times to high?????
Avatar f tn Hello, Question about too low of blood sugar. My husband has fasting blood sugar in the 50's and even after a pretty good meal they barely move up and then go back to fasting within an hours. I know this isn't diabetes but didn't see a hypoglycemia category. Today his pre-lunch blood sugar was 43. He said he felt fine, but I gave him a snack of almonds, boiled eggs and tomatoes anyway. He had oatmeal, w/butter, cream for breakfast only a few hours earlier.
Avatar m tn Check if it can raise your blood sugar levels. Some high blood pressure medicine can raise the sugar levels. Know your body. It is the inly one you will have.
Avatar n tn when you eat carbohydrates your body turns them to sugar, your pancreas releases insulin to lower BG (Blood Sugar) but makes too much insulin and causes your BG to drop too much. Eat less carbs have less BG swings. You say you have hypos after eating, what are your BG numbers or are you just calling them hypos because of your symptoms.
Avatar f tn Here is what I have noticed and I cannot find anything in my own research to help me interpret. For a few weeks my fasting blood sugar will be between 100-127. My spikes after meals will go over 200. It takes about four hours after a meal for me to return to my pre-meal state of 100-127. Then, suddenly, my fasting levels will be 56-72 each morning. No matter what I eat my blood sugar will remain under a hundred and then quickly drop back down to the 56-72 range.
Avatar n tn happens when your body doesn't make enough insulin on it's own, (insulin is a substance that lowers blood sugar in the blood because youre blood sugar is too high when youre diabetic) and you have to take oral or injectible insulin to make up for this, and you perhaps inject too much insulin (which lowers your blood sugar too much.) This is the diabetic kind of hypoglycemia. The kind I have, reactive hypoglycemia, is less common and only in these last few years has been widely recognized.
Avatar n tn Levemir should not increase your blood pressure. But stress and anxiety can. Your very high blood sugar is going to cause you complications. What is your correction factor? How many units of insulin does it take to bring your blood sugar down by say 20 points. But you can only test this properly AFTER you've adjusted your levemir and have your non-eating (basal) blood sugar stable. Becuase for now the humalog is replacing too low basal insulin.
Avatar f tn Carbohydrates raise Blood Sugar (BG) wonton is a carb carbs raise BG fruit is high in carbs Carbs raise BG oatmeal is very high in carbs carbs raise BG banana is high in carbs Carbs raise BG grape fruit has carbs Carbs raise BG what was the garlic sauce made of? flower? corn starch? Both are high in carbs. *** also do NOT eat grapefruit while taking Metforman (glucophage) and many other drugs do not get along with grapefruit.
Avatar n tn To add to Super_sally888, eating foods that contain white sugar, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup or refined carbohydrates can cause your sugar levels to spike and then suddenly drop as if you have hypoglycemia. This sudden drop in blood sugar levels is due to your pancreas releasing too much insulin to counteract the sudden high blood sugar levels that occurred from eating the aforementioned food types.
Avatar m tn This morning i took my blood test (not a diabetic, trying to rule out low blood sugar that may cause some symptoms im having) and it ranged from 118 right when i woke up to 95 when i got moving. Is too much blood on the strip bad? should i just have enough on the strip to allow a reading and take my finger away? it seemed that my readings were lower when it got just enough blood to get a reading and i took my finger away. also, how fast does a sport drink like gatorade raise your blood sugar?
1096641 tn?1271710825 (They are converted to sugar after you eat them.) Other foods/drinks need care too (example; milk, fruit, fruit juice) can also cause blood sugar to rise (so serving sizes and moderation are important). With fruit it’s important to eat them with other foods to slow the absorption of fructose (fruit sugar). I'm NOT saying that these foods aren't allowed. What I AM saying is that you need to use care and follow the guidelines for diabetics.
315996 tn?1429057829 B then S salt is essential for life, too much is removed by kidneys, body tells us when we need it....if you take lots of supplements you may get too much, what does you main blood panel show. now if you want to get into man made salts like MSG etc...then we'll be here for hours....3 words. NO TACO BELL.....
Avatar f tn Try to space your meals so that they're not too close together or too far apart. 5. Remember that protein lasts longer and it doesn't raise blood sugar as much as carbs do. 6. Fruit raises blood sugar sky high and it does so quickly.....then it drops quickly. To prevent that from happening, don't ever eat fruit by itself. So if you eat let's say a small apple, have some nuts or a piece of cheese with it (or something else). 7.
Avatar n tn I had bouts of ED from watching too much porn. It ruined my sex life for a while. It took porn abstinence, a very patient woman, and lots of time(2 months) for me to get over it. After breaking up with her...I got back into the same porn habits and started to get ED again... Then.. I noticed something that made it go away. I noticed that if I held the tip of my wang with less pressure when jerking. Ie.
Avatar f tn In persons with prediabetes, their pancreas is in the process of losing the ability to control blood sugar. I don't think you are testing too much at this point, when you are trying to discover what makes you go high. However, later on you probably won't need to test so much as you can eat tried and true foods and meals and only test occassionally to see that you are still on track.
Avatar f tn your numbers too high (way too high) its NOT sugar its CARBOHYDRATES that raise BG (sugar is a carb) so is wheat, rice, potato, pasta and yes sugar. fasting fasting over night, could be in the AM you are getting DP (Down Phenomenon) your body getting ready for the day and your liver lets loose with glucose (you dont need it but your liver does it anyways) Then going without eating can raise BG more because your starving and again your liver says lets put out some glucose.
1548538 tn?1293875433 The first time I did it, I found immediate results. The 2nd time I did it, my scalp dried out too much and became tight and itchy starting the cycle all over again. I'm not going to give up as the vinegar is the only treatment I found with quick results, plus it's vinegar. Does get any cheaper or available. Anyways, this is still a work in progress but wanted to share my experience this far for anyone wanted to try it out.
Avatar m tn even complex carbs raise blood sugar (BG) so watch them too. what drugs are you on? what is your BG... before you eat, 1 hour after, before your walk, during, after.
793305 tn?1493929118 everybody thinks its sugar that raises BG. Its CARBOHYDRATES, Carbs raise BG, ALL carbs raise BG. sugar is a carb, so is rice, pasta, bread most fruit... ALL will raise BG. So will illness, infections, steroids...
8650265 tn?1421569013 You can eat as much lean meat, veggies and stuff like yogurt and cheese that you want. You do have to watch stuff like pasta, breads and rice. How low was your blood sugar today? Did you feel ill- shaky, sweaty, pale? To combat that try eating several small meals a day with snacks in between. If you need help ask to meet with a nutritionist. They can help you understand your restrictions and also help meal plan.
1097839 tn?1344583542 Fruit as a substitute only works to a certain extent for me and i don't like to eat too much of that either as even just one apple sometimes can leave me feeling more hungry than before I had it! Distractions are a good suggestion. I like the housework recommendation! My house could always do with being cleaner! I was only eating 70% dark choc for quite a while but have fallen back into evil milk chocolate ways over christmas.
1097839 tn?1344583542 A hypoglycemic, in an attempt to raise blood sugar, will eat sweets. The sweets paradoxically only serve to depress blood sugar further. As blood sugar continues to drop, the craving increases. The treatment is the same as it is for diabetes - stay away from sugar. Here is what you do. (1) Eat several small meals a day, instead of three large ones (to keep blood sugar more level). (2) When the desire for sugar hits you, eat a little protein.
Avatar m tn If the liver is unable to effectively metabolize the ammonia, the levels rise in the blood. Could you be eating too much protein??? What s your typical food during a day? Are you getting your protein from vegetable sources or chicken and fish? You are not eating any red meat, correct? Higher than norm ammonia levels are usually due to a problem with protein being broken down in the small intestines. It is then process by the liver and eliminated through the kidneys in your urine.
Avatar n tn I am assuming (perhaps wrongly) that even if you are non-diabetic, that foods you eat (which may or may not be healthy) can raise your blood sugar to such an elevated level that you will simply have too much sugar in your system for even a normally healthy personal whose body produces and handles insulin normally and whose organs are normal to lower that amount of sugar below 180 even two hours after a meal.
Avatar n tn As you can see, i much to say on this subject because it has haunted me for years, i lost friends, dating has been hard, I've ended really great relationships because i couldn't stand to see someone i care for suffer and knowing I was the cause, and work was extremely hard. Many people might have noticed this connection and just said whatever, but not me, i took it personal and it made me physically ill, mentally unstable and emotionally drained.
Avatar m tn The difference beween 102, 99, 95 and 93 is so small (and within meter accuracy), that we can consider your blood sugar is essentially stable, regardless of what you eat. Your fasting numbers are probably very slightly higher than ideal, which is most likely in the low - mid 80s, but does not raise any alarms at this point.
Avatar n tn Got one today in the knuckle area in my palm. Bright blue bruise.... very weird the only thing I can think is my blood vessels seem really close to my skin. And I hit them just right...
151263 tn?1243377877 I know some have said that you shouldn't drink too much, but I have only read that from a few people and haven't read much about it. It must help with sx's, as it gets those toxins out of your body. When I am feeling bad from sx, water does seem to help me feel better at times.
Avatar n tn I haven't weighed since then cause I want to be suprised at my month check-up but now I've heard so much about the HCG shot I am wondering where I can find a clinic in TX that does that too? I hear it makes you lose inches in no time.
