Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes diet keep daily food journal

diabetes

Business man2 I exercise every day, 7 days a week, by walking 1-1.5 miles. I also take Zumba classes. I watch everything I eat and keep a daily journal of food intake and exercise and calories burned. It can be done without meds (I am doing it) but it is not easy and takes dedication. But hey, aren't you worth it?
798555 tn?1292791151 Doc just says good exercise and diet. I do that! 1)What is a simple recommended diet to keep blood sugar low? I eat vary basic, would like to keep this as simple as possible. My diet is pretty much poultry for meat / protein, veggies , fruit. The only sugar I intake is in granola bars. I stopped eating potatoes last year. No white rice, only brown or American wild rice.
11195379 tn?1427925127 I go back in a week showing her my food journal and my sugar levels hopefully they won't be high or abnormal. Thank you!
Avatar n tn Good luck to you all and I will keep you posted with my friends results. It helps to keep a journal of your weight and measurements - more motivation!
338920 tn?1195643836 About 2 yrs earlier I had also been diagnosed with Diabetes Type II. Took a daily shot of insulin, exercised consistently, and was very cosncientous about diet. I somehow intuitively suspected there was a connection between Hep C, my diminished liver function and the onset of Diabetes. When I asked Doc's, nurses, etc they usually poo-poo'd the idea. About 4 weeks into treatment ( I was UND at 8 weeks) I noticed my sugar levels were improving.
Avatar n tn I have never noted any reactions to food, but will keep a closer eye. He does not have diarhea with this nor vomiting - which is why it's confusing me. I have heard through the grapevine that people with Diabetes develop lots of kidney stones and was told children have these sort of symptons for years until one day, the pain is extreme and it's off to surgery. I don't know how true this is and have never seen this kind of information posted anywhere. Has anyone heard of this?
469720 tn?1388149949 It's like mopping up around an over flowing sink basin and forgetting to turn off the faucet Aside from uncommon genetic disorders, diet is by far the most important factor leading to the development of Diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension. CVD is virtually unheard of in individuals with total cholesterol < 150 and strict vegetarians have 80% less chance of developing heart attack or stroke.
Avatar f tn I enjoy shopping for my food and finding new ways to make it. It is a great diet for diabetes too. My daughter, who has ADHD (never on meds for it) has calmed down with just changing our food choices...so added bonus!!! Not everyone will agree with me but I know how I feel..I feel like I am in my early 20's ( I will be 40 in Dec)...and my skin looks great, too.
251922 tn?1193786078 I had hoped I could lose and little weight and as my body adjusts (especially since the original protocol didn't call for excercise) I could incorporate the physical little by little. I can't take any pain meds with this diet and I can't take the pain that will come after daily exercise yet. (I normally took IB daily at least twice and Vicodin at least once month for bad times) Just being off my meds has made a difference!
Avatar n tn I have read here more then once of someone who had diabetes treated for hep c and then there diabetes cleared. sounds to good to be true although I hope it is. Does anyone have any links to share about studies in regards to diabetes and hep c. I asked by by diabetes docotor and my hep c doctor about a link between the two diseases and both said there wasn't one. Since I am not over weight and there is no diabetes in my family I am inclined to think there is a link.
Avatar f tn So in short just by lightly reading the excerpts i can safely assume that selenium would contribute to lowering TPO-Ab levels if at all. So about diet I just have to keep eating healthy, and not over exercise and I would be as good as I can be with Hashimoto's. thanks you!!!!!!
Avatar n tn My husband has been a diabetic since a child now in his 50s - he has type 1 diabetes, his memory has declined over the years - and from my experience has got worse over the years and nautically since going on the pump. He does not manage in my opinion his diabetes well. There is evidence that managed diabetes is the key. My husband claims that his bad memory is a family thing - yes we can have this, yes we can have memory loss due to stress, lack of sleep list goes on.
Avatar f tn Btw, you can just consume regular, ol' cinnamon, too. If you look at the history of how it was discovered, of the IR folks in a study, the ones who ate apple pie turned out to be less insulin resistant. Eventually, it was discovered it was the cinnamon in the apple pie that was causing it. Later studies confirmed cinnamon improves insulin sensitivity. It's pretty well accepted, given the varied sources. It sure worked for me, with almost no reasonable question.
Avatar f tn Other medical disorders unrelated to liver disease, such as diabetes or heart disease, must also be factored into any diet. Each person has his or her own individual nutritional requirements, and these requirements may change over time. Nutrition and liver disease can be a complicated subject. That is why I devoted an entire chapter to this topic in my book: "Dr. Melissa Palmer's Guide To Hepatitis And Liver Disease".
Avatar n tn I presently keep insane notes and journal my food intake. Now my big test is to see if I can maintain my weight (125). Ill need a good 6 months to be able to give any good sound healthy advice. Wish me LUCK!
931217 tn?1283484935 AS A BLOG ENTRY, THIS IS OF COURSE, MY OPINION., ALBEIT, IT IS AN EVIDENCE-BASED OPINION, DERIVED FROM PEER-REVIEWED JOURNAL ARTICLES, ONE OF WHICH IS APPENDED BELOW. WHILE I RECOGNIZE THAT A MINORITY OF CONSUMERS AND A SMALL MINORITY OF VETERINARIANS MAY FEEL DIFFERENTLY ABOUT RAW MEAT BASED DIETS FOR PETS. FEELINGS ABOUT THE NATURAL WORLD AND THE WAY IT WORKS ARE NO SUBSTITUTE FOR REAL ATTEMPTS TO UNDERSTAND IT HOWEVER.
649848 tn?1534637300 a DIET is simply what you eat…….. monkeys eat a diet of bananas, panda bears eat a diet of eucalyptus leaves, etc. I am often reluctant to post there also, because *I* first advocate that anyone having a horribly hard time losing weight needs to be checked out by their doctor to make sure they don’t have underlying medical issues.
Avatar m tn Article Food and Our Bones by Annemarie Colbin, Ph.D. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Osteoporosis has been talked about at length since the early 1980's, when studies found it to be a public health issue. It is estimated that over 25 million people in the United States are affected by this condition. However, it is not osteoporosis, or thinning of the bones, that is the problem, but the risk of fracture, especially in the elderly.
Avatar f tn Due to the fact that you have the psoriatic arthritis and the PCOS and possible diabetes, I would follow a gluten free (sometimes a cause of psoriasis) and low carb diet (which is recommended for PCOS patients) and see how you feel. And if I were you, I would do my best to avoid medications and insulin for diabetes. If diet controls the problem (if you have this problem) do your best to stick with it. Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn Have Fun with Biochemistry Scientists can't yet prescribe a diet based on your DNA, but they do know enough to help you match your food choices to your biochemistry. This could mean the difference between a 3-pound and a 12-pound loss over six months. In a recent study from Stanford University School of Medicine, researcher Arianna McClain, Ph.D., M.P.H.
Avatar m tn One study in the Journal of Medical Food found that people who ate half a fresh grapefruit a day lost 3 ½ pounds in 12 weeks and making no changes in diet or exercise. And pair it with green tea, as part of the 17-Day Green Tea Diet. Its metabolism-boosting compounds, called catechins, increase metabolism and speed the liver’s capacity for turning fat into energy.
Avatar f tn Can you tell us what kinds of things you eat? What kind of exercise you prefer? Do you keep a food diary? It's generally figured that losing 1-2 pounds/week is safest and we have some members who have lost large amounts of weight, so you aren't alone. It's necessary to incorporate a sensible diet with moderate exercise and make "small" changes that you can live with, rather than trying to cut back to a 1000 calorie diet and exercise full tilt, all at once.
Avatar f tn There are websites that will help you calculate your calorie needs, and have food trackers so you can keep a food journal. Spark People is a good one. Start out very making very small changes - like cutting out one soda per day or something like that.
1219984 tn?1341274926 I need to stop weighing myself every day, i havent been posting my weight daily on my tracker, but definitely have been checking it religiously when i wake up in the am. ALSO.... i need to stop taking mouthfuls of food here and there through out the day.... one spoon of gravy, 2 french fries, one bite of the delicious cake sitting on the counter... damn do they ever add up!
535822 tn?1443980380 Tryptophan is the precursor to serotonin, which is a necessary neurotransmitter that can lift some types of depression. Food sources that contain tryptophan include fish, poultry, organic beef, eggs, broccoli, endive, fennel, sweet potato, carrot, barley, rye, oats, rice, hummus, lentils, hazelnuts, peanuts, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds.
Avatar m tn To help with elevated Lp(a) use fish or squid oil (1 or 2 g daily) and either one of two natural clot-busting enzyme supplements, nattokinase (50 mg twice a day) or lumbrokinase, (20 mg one to two times daily). Also up to 2 grams daily of niacin. It needs to be regular niacin not the none flush niacin. you could experience the niacin flush. To deal with the flush start at a very low level (about 100 mg) and then very slowly increase the dosage.
Avatar m tn Adequate D might be equal to exercise in its ability to ward off this number one killer of men. Blood pressure? D helps keep it down. Diabetes? Yep, studies show that D can combat this, too. Now add to this list the potential to ward off memory loss, certain cancers (including prostate), and even the common cold, and it should come as no surprise that D may also help solve the riddle of your expanding middle. Here's the rundown on the many benefits of boosting your vitamin D.
921323 tn?1268679412 Some studies even suggest that drinking diet soda can result in weight gain too. 6) Soup is good food. The commercials are true - soup is good for you. Avoid the creamy and cheesy options and fill up on broth-based vegetable soups. Eating soup before a meal will satisfy you and result in eating fewer calories overall. 7) The kitchen is a no-fly zone after dinner. Once you leave the kitchen after dinner, don't come back until morning. You are not welcome there. 8) Do something.
6918143 tn?1386344047 Right after I had the baby, it took me two weeks to get down to 153, which I maintained until i got on birth control and I have just gained since, regardless of my exercise and food plan. I workout every day. I keep a food journal…and VERY rarely do I ever come close to my researched daily caloric intake for maintenance. I am usually FAR below (suggested 1900 or so and I usually stay in the 1200-1500 range for caloric intake). Yet, I continue to gain weight.
3060903 tn?1398568723 The new Pyramid maintains the original messages above, while providing more definition about how much each food group contributes to a daily diet. We also updated the variety of foods that are available within each food group, to reflect current dietary behaviours and encourage variety.
