Diabetes diet meal plan

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes diet meal plan


Avatar f tn @Chrissyh81, I'm glad you found this helpful! I did lose weight with being on the new meal plan and especially in the beginning of the diet. Now my weight is basically leveled out. I'm 37+2 and have barely gained weight since having GD and being on the new diet. Oh, and I know for me, my water intake has increased a lot! Maybe that has something to do with my weight, but I have noticed I'm more thirsty and mainly for cold water.
Avatar m tn The average daily allowance of vitamin K for adult men is 120 micrograms (mcg). For adult women, it's 90 mcg. A nutritionist should be able to give you a sample meal plan. Regards.
Avatar n tn Hi ozarkskye, my advice is based on my own experience, as I'm not a physician but have been a diabetic for 11 years. There are many diet plans for diabetics, but the ones that work best are usually custom-made for individuals, tailored to their specific needs by their nutritionist/dietitian. Was the diet plan your doctor gave you created with your input and have you discussed your concerns with him?
Avatar n tn First thing you need have on hand is a home glucose test meter. The only way you're going to know how the foods you consumed affected your glucose [blood sugar] levels is by testing, testing, and more testing. Times to test are; fasting - first thing in morning b4 having any food or colored liquids [plain water is OK]. This will tell you how much stored sugar your liver is dumping during sleep hours. Normal levels are 60/70 - 99 mg/dl or 3.33/3.88 - 5.
Avatar n tn Why are you posting and not your father? Can you explain "precautions"? Do you mean prevent his diabetes from progressing? If yes we need to know what he is doing to control and manage his diabetes - foods he eats, exercise program, blood sugar levels and when he tests? "the good diet plan for them...." Changing lifestyle habits can go a long way in controlling type 2 diabetes. India leads the world in diabetes. This is mainly due to poor diet/nutrition.
Avatar n tn well got my diabetes results bk and it looks like ive got diabetes. waitin 2 speak 2 my midwife about what treatment they will give me. hopin it will b just a good diet, ive been told that sometimes thats enough 2 keep it under control.
1328782 tn?1275081537 So I have had my gall bladder removed and Totally did not follow the meal plan givin to me..now I have type 2 diabetes and still eat horrible!! What can I do to follow a meal plan that suits my life??
Avatar n tn The doctor said her glucose level was 13 from the normal level 6. Can her diabetes be cured wth diet,exercise or is it too high to get rid of through a changed diet and exercise?
Avatar f tn I e-mailed the diabetes education nurse at Joslin Diabetes Center and she responded that a weight loss diet has to be customized for the person. So poster diabetes86 is correct that there is no "diabetes" diet. For your father, you should look for a diabetes program (free if possible) that will show him (and you) what to eat, how much and how often. There is literature to read and make note of.
Avatar m tn Did your doctor refer you to a dietician or give you a diet plan? You want to get your blood sugars under control as soon as possible. Good Luck.
Avatar n tn I'm neither a medical professional or a dietician, I'm just a parent of a child with diabetes, just like you. What we've learned about diet is that being on a strict diet isn't as important as accurately counting the carbs in the meal. Once you have that accurate count, you can then dose the proper amount of insulin to handle those carbs, factoring in your daughter's bg level at that time. That means if she's high, you can give a little extra insulin to bring down the score.

Avatar n tn So your doctor should be right with you in wanting your weight to be normal. I would ask directly for a diet plan and for help in lowering insulin dosage when the carbs are changed (as I assume they will be if you lower your calorie intake). A change in diet should start the weight loss and maybe adding some regular exercise (even walking around the block each morning or evening) should help.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed met with a nutritionist so I can control it through diet. If you aren't on meds then you have to watch the carbs you eat per meal. My diet plan consists of 30 g of carbs per meal. Special k exceeds that in 1 serving. You should try to avoid breads, pastas, and watch your carb intake. Veggies and protein is alright and no limit on it. Try googling a diet to follow online and good luck.
Avatar n tn My best recommendation would be to speak to his doctor or a nutritionist to come up with a meal plan that will factor in both his preferences and his medical needs. The doctor can give calorie and other parameters that you dad should follow. If this is not possible, then the American Diabetes Associtation has meal plans available free of charge on their site which may be of assistance.
Avatar f tn It's not bad at all its just they put you on insulin you have to see a nutritionist and they give you a meal plan. It's ok I thought it was the end of the world but it's ok. It made me drop a lot of weight tho and its a good and bad thing because my experience I had to go to the hospital because me and babies heart rate was above 200 and this was after I took my insulin. Not saying it will happen to you just be careful.
Avatar f tn You will also have to see a dietitian they will put you on a meal plan. And you will have to monitor your sugar levels four times a day.
Avatar f tn i found out i had gestational diabetes 2 mths ago, so i changed my diet. then i went and did another fasting and 2 hr after meal test and the doctor said the diabetes is o'k. but my question is can i go back to eating what i want because i still have no appetite, i'm so confused. i need serious help please.
Avatar f tn This is the second time I have been diagnosed with it. I was really scared at first,but if you follow the diet plan and you control your sugars you will be fine. My daughter is now 6 yo and was born weighing only 7lbs and didnt have sugar problems. With this pregnancy I have maintained my sugars since January and havent needed any meds just diet control.
Avatar f tn i sometimes go over allowed carbs a little but everything level wise and baby has been good. i'm sure it depend per woman but i had to see a nutritionist to make a meal plan on how many carbs i can have each meal and snacks.she had a list for me of howamy carbs are in portions of certain foods im sure you can find a good chart on google too. Id say just make sure you watch carbs.its amazing how many carbs are in everything even things i thought were healthy for you like raisin bran and bananas.
Avatar f tn Also, if you do the three hour test and its determined you have gestational diabetes, the doc will put you on a diet. You can look up a diet plan on the Internet and save time and money. I don't think there are meds to control this either. I have cut out a lot of sweets from my diet. I actually feel a lot better. I felt weak and tired a lot before. I guess this was partly why.
Avatar f tn Fruit will still be fine for snacks and in meals as long as the sugars are accounted for intervene your daily diet log. If you didn't pass the 3-hour you'll meet with a dietician who can help you plan a diet that will work for you.
Avatar f tn A gestational diabetic diet focuses on eating a balanced amount of protien and carbs at each meal. The easiest way to describe the diet is to follow an Atkins diet. Exercise does help some with GD. It's always good to get some exercise too! And dr's don't usually do the test until late in pregnancy because that's when most women get it. It is caused by pressure on the pancread (or liver, I can't remember) which produces insulin. You have more pressure at the end of pregnancy.
Avatar f tn I had my 1 hour glucose test today and it didn't take very long for me to get a call from the doc saying I didn't pass. I am now going to be following their meal plan all weekend and going back for the 3 hour test on Monday. Anyone have any experience with Gestational Diabetes?
11195379 tn?1427925127 I went to see a dietician and after talking to her I got a better understanding of gestational diabetes and she helped me with a meal plan. She also explained what to look for when picking out what I'm going to have for a meal and a snack. What really matters is the total carbohydrates. I got a prescription for a meter and testing strips and I have to check my blood four times a day.
Avatar f tn As long as you stick to the meal plan they provide and your sugars stay low you'll be fine. My first was born full term at 7 lbs no sugar issues at all. The diet can be a little difficult to keep up but it is all worth it.
Avatar f tn Today And they Gave me my Glucose Tolarence Test Results, and it looks like I Have Gestational Diabetes (GD). It's Been Very Hard To Keep A Great Diet In This pregnancy. Does anyone else have GD and are having a Hard Time with this? I'm 27 weeks. With My last pregnancy I did so good didn't gain any weight, and with this pregnancy I've already gained almost 20lbs.
Avatar m tn A nutritionist can be great in helping figure out a diet plan that cuts calories but still remains balanced and healthy, or you can try programs like Weight watchers. Good luck, congratulations to you and your wife on your new little one, and take care of yourself.
