645800 tn?1466864555 I would highly recommend you ask that it be added to your labwork next time you have blood drawn. The American Diabetes Association has excellent information on how this test works.
Avatar f tn My HMO has a nutritionist who never returned my calls; she even ignored the e-mails from the diabetes education nurse urging her to get in touch with me. If anyone has a daily menu plan for diabetics seeking to lose weight, please let me know. Thank you.

Avatar n tn In general you don't really need to worry about gestational diabetes since, according to the American Diabetes Association, only about 4% of pregnant women are diagnosed with gestational diabetes during their pregnancy. If you do develop gestational diabetes however, don't panic, but do work with your doctor to make sure you're taking good care of yourself and follow the guidelines given.
1469903 tn?1286650297 What can be done to slow diabetes complications? β€’ Findings from the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) and the United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study (UKPDS) have clearly shown that aggressive and intensive control of elevated levels of blood sugar in patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes decreases the complications of nephropathy, neuropathy, retinopathy, and may reduce the occurrence and severity of large blood vessel diseases.
317787 tn?1473362051 The association between diabetes and liver disease is not coincidental; in fact, the two health conditions may just be different sides of the same metabolic coin. Type II Diabetes Also referred to as adult onset diabetes and non-insulin dependent diabetes, Type II diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way the body metabolizes sugar (glucose).
Avatar m tn I know what you need. Its the American Diabetes Association Guide. It's one of the most comprehensive and well organised books out there: http://ebookbees.
Avatar n tn Low carb diet is absolutely the best way to manage diabetes. American Diabetes Association is now also recognizing this. By low carb we mean about 20 - 30 g of carbs per day. Protein should be adequate (can be up to 1.5g/ kg body weight), and healthy unprocessed fats (avoid vegetable oils) for energy balance. HEalthy fats include the fats that come with meats and full fat dairy, nuts, avocado etc.
Avatar m tn (Reuters Health) - An egg a day for breakfast probably won't increase your likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes, according to a new study. In the study, researchers failed to see a significant association between eating eggs occasionally or almost daily and the development of type 2 diabetes in nearly 4,000 older men and women. While eggs are a key source of dietary cholesterol, they also contain a number of other potentially beneficial nutrients, Dr.
116881 tn?1189759423 less than 100mg/dL After eating: less than 140 mg/dL The American Diabetes Association also has some good information on their site www.diabetes.org. Take care.
1324377 tn?1274735941 Is this even really considered Gestational Diabetes? The nurse never used that term, I'm just assuming. I suffer from major anxiety (panic disorder) and am going through a TON of stress (no work and being evicted from our home) and this just adds to everything. Please, help me to understand these numbers. I need some peace of mind. My Dr. knows of my anxiety and just thinks I overreact to things, but I am concerned for my baby and myself, to be honest. Thanks for reading. Blessings to all.
Avatar m tn Your number of 101 is just slightly elevated past normal. The American Diabetes Association states that the normal range is 70 to 100 mg/dl. Diabetes is often diagnosed when there are consecutive readings in excess of 125 mg/dl. So, I would imagine your doctor will want to retest you. Food can impact this and some foods should be avoided. https://diabetic.news/15-must-avoid-foods-diabetic-diet/?
Avatar n tn fatigue irritability sleepiness inability to concentrate yawning headache hunger or nausea dry eyes and mouth So if this is the cause, the solution is to keep the sugar levels from spiking higher than normal during the day. It may be a good idea to talk with a dietician to find out what kind of diet might help even out the glucose levels.
603046 tn?1279163013 Zoe, The Mayo Clinic as well as the American Diabetes Association (ADA) have revised what they feel are the "normal" glucose ranges, and at the same time dropped "prediabetes" from the vocabulary. Although Mayo derives their ranges for the ADA, they're not exactly the same. One has 70 mg/dl as the low, the other 80 mg/dl. Both have 130 mg/dl as the high for prandial (fasting). Both have postprandial as <180 mg/dl.
Avatar m tn Blackberry varieties are also high in vitamin C and fiber β€” and are low in calories. Black Beans The American Diabetes Association recommends including beans in your diabetic diet because they are high in fiber which helps keep blood sugar levels stable and high in protein. Plus the antioxidants in beans are healthy. The beans highest in antioxidants also have the richest hues from anthocyanin pigments, especially black beans.
Avatar f tn Your hubby is my story 5 years ago. From there I found out about the hep-c. If infact the diabetes if from hep-c it is more likely liver induced insilin resistance. The key is diet and exersise and the right meds. The normal meds are meds to get your pancress to pump out more insilin. Not really needed if the problem isn't your lack of insilin but the inability of your body to use what is being made. Your doctor will more than likely perscribe Glyburide or Metformin.
1215139 tn?1348201029 Being overweight will increase your risk of developing diabetes. A diet high in calories (whether those calories are from sugar or from fat) can lead to you being overweight which is one of the risk factors for diabetes. I hope this answers your question.
Avatar n tn 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.diabetes.org. Best of luck in your continued efforts to control your diabetes! Keep up the good work!
Avatar n tn Ive read many problems concerning the Diabetic diet posted on the diabetes website that it hurts the diabetics more than helping them. Is this true? What do you think?
766573 tn?1365170066 Dr. Buse, a former president of the American Diabetes Association, said treatments including smoking cessation, statins to reduce cholesterol and blood pressure medications are so powerful that they could swamp the modest effects of weight loss or exercise on cardiovascular risk. Other medical experts said they were waiting for release of the detailed data collected by the researchers before interpreting the study. β€œIt is hard to tell anything without the details of the study,” said Dr.
1774905 tn?1314266465 I would take a Proton Pump Inhibitor and mix in daily exercise, eat foods with fiber, stay away from the inside of the supermarket, buy the vegetables, etc on the perimeter. I'd try that approach before taking a bunch of expensive 'natural' medicines.
Avatar f tn A very good place to start is here and I would also try the web site for the American Diabetes Association. I believe it is ADA.com. There is no more chance that your baby will inherit the disease from you than the chance that it will get his hair color or eye color. Perhaps even less of a chance because it is not proven that it is heritary at all.
Avatar m tn You would be amazed how little doctors know about diabetes. The American Diabetes Association lowered the criteria for fasting bg to diagnose pre-diabetes from 110 to 100 in 1998. (prior to that 110-139 was considered pre-diabetic and 140 and over diabetic.) Many more people are now diagnosed with pre-diabetes and given the opportunity to slow or prevent progression to diabetes. There are some people who believe the cutoffs should be lowered again.
146021 tn?1237208487 Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes To move away from basing the names of the two main types of diabetes on treatment or age at onset, an American Diabetes Association expert committee recommended in 1997 universal adoption of simplified terminology. The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) agrees.
Avatar n tn My husband's doctor has said there are no inheritance factors, but so far I have found that there are (mainly through the American Diabetes Association website)... I am very hesitant to go ahead with our plans for having offspring, until I gather enough information on the risks involved. If you or anyone you know has had to deal with this issue, or if you have any information you think might be useful, please let me know. Thank you so much!!!

Avatar f tn if not, he can eat pretty much anything. Proper diet is good for anyone; a good model to follow could be from the American Heart Association, as well as the American Diabetes Association. Emphasis on high fiber, low sugar, and lots of fruits and veggies is always a good idea. Additionally, maintaining ideal body weight and BMI is great too.
118225 tn?1278658540 A good starting point is the ADA (American Diabetes Association) Web page http://www.diabetes.org/home.jsp Tons of information on diabetes control out there in cyber land. I Google'd "controlling diabetes" and got 398,000 hits http://tinyurl.com/38eh8t . Diet, nutrition and moderate exercise will help control diabetes. Stay away from junk food for your baby's sake.
Avatar m tn Does HCV cause the diabetes ? Then the causal effect would be from HCV, not diabetes. Does diabetes negatively affect liver function in those with HCV creating a synergistic effect leading to worsening of disease and poorer clinical outcomes ? In this setting it could be a multi-factorial causal effect. Further clouding the picture is their association of alcohol as a seperate risk factor for HCC.
