Diabetes diet plan salt

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes diet plan salt


Avatar m tn As for diet, you need more salt than most people. Depending on you past test results, you may need to avoid potassium rich foods when you are not feeling well. In general, with AI, you have to be consistent. Consistent with your meds, how and when you take them. Diet should be healthy but what is healthy for us is high sodium. I generally do best on a low carb diet as sugar is an issue for me - but you have to figure out what is the best for you.
Avatar n tn I had to have a physical from my own doctor who had to sign some paper work from GHI and I had to have a blood test as specified from GHI Medical. I followed the 500 calorie diet religiously. I had plenty of energy to exercise which I did 5 - 6 aerobic work outs and 3 weight training work outs. I am a personal trainer and I was having an extremely frustrating time loosing weight after the birth of my 3rd child. Yes, I washed my hair and conditioned it.

Cutting down on carbohydrates, eating a heathy diet are important as is getting to a good weight that is within healthy BMI. But do note that simply working on it and losing 'some' weight is better than nothing and you will impact your health in a positive way by doing this. As for hypertension/high blood pressure. Again, there are life style things to try.
Avatar m tn Blackberry varieties are also high in vitamin C and fiber — 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 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.
Avatar n tn Just off the top of my head, I would suggest an avocado ( if, of course, you love avocados. like I do) . It has very healthy fat and many great nutrients. During tx we need to eat healthy whole foods and this fits the bill. Nutritional info below. According to this, we would need to eat almost a whole med size avocado, but one could tweek that. (it also gives us some good calories for those that don't want to lose weight) @somuchmore2....
Avatar f tn I used to follow a low carb (atkins) diet for many many years, i maintained that way. My nutritionist changed my plan to the one your doctor put you on.... high carb/moderate protein/lowfat. so fat i've been dropping fat percentages but weight keeps rising (1 pound at a time so to speak) and I was maybe thinking to go back to low carb (not paleo) but certainly lower carb.
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 A question to those of you who took it and it didn't work, did you stick to the diet and exercise program 100%, that is what I plan to do, if so, then I cannot understand why it wouldn't work. I already know that I will have success as I am so comitted to this system 100%, nutritional diet and excersice I know will play a crucial role in my success or others, if you don't do it to the T, then I don't believe the results will show.
146021 tn?1237208487 I have joked about my lousy diet leading to type 2 diabetes but I just got a call from my pcp and my blood sugar for the second time was high. Not skyrocket high but I think the nurse said 147. I don't eat well and drink watered down juice all day. I wonder if all the sugar in the juice is doing this. I would appreciate any suggestions, not asking for medical advice. They did ask me to stop by tomorrow to get a fasting finger stick. Thanks in advance.
Avatar n tn My mom is 77 and has been diagnosed with a gastric ulcer. She also has diabetes and high blood pressure. What should her breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks look like to keep all of these conditions under control?
Avatar n tn The WISER Diet Plan at gramslam (dot) com is new. You might want to take a look at it.
Avatar n tn I'm not a medical professional or a dietician, just the parent of a kid with diabetes. I don't think there is a correlation between food cravings and diabetes. Have you talked to a dietician about changing the way you eat? Maybe you need to find foods that might fill you up better so you wouldn't have that craving later?
15298662 tn?1439720697 And also there has been at least 5 generations in a row of women that we know of on my mom's side who have had type 2 diabetes. We know for sure my mom, my mom's mom, my mom's grandma, my mom's great grandma and my mom's great great grandma all have it or did have it. I would be the first one it has skipped. Also my dad's dad and his grandpa had it as well. So I am worried that I may be pre diabetic but I am not exactly sure. So of course given my family's history it worries me.
8899539 tn?1409618090 Hello ladies, I will start off by saying am so happy I have made it to 31 weeks and 3 days. I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes weeks ago. Now my blood pressure has been going up for weeks now. I did all the blood test they were normal, then the 24 hours urine collection which showed protein in my urine. I was told the perinatal doctors will come talk to me about when to deliver. What can I expect? Has anyone else been through this? Am worried is my baby going to be ok?
231441 tn?1333896366 It's only six pm and and I've already exceeded my 1900 calories allowed for the day by 300. They've told me I should stick with this diet plan very strictly. Maybe this is a result of sticking to the cals yesterday and doing a 3-hr bike ride (est at 1200-1500 cals).
Avatar n tn I'm in the same situation and I have to tell you the smartest thing you could do is research the KetoDiet, ketogenesis.
Avatar n tn There is a diet called the DASH diet which was created to help people with diabetes, high blood pressure, and hypertension. You can do a little research on line about DASH; some sites even have a menu plan. First, you should definitely discuss this w/ your doctor, to see if this would be a good diet for you to follow during your pregnancy. Also, keep exercising daily ~ exercise really makes a huge difference w/ high blood pressure, it lowers it...
Avatar m tn diet -low salt, low fat, diabetic diet and physical activity and regular activities(go to office) i need ur opinion, about CABG? any other option?
Avatar m tn I have always followed a low sodium diet. Could the teeth bonding procedure have caused this? I do plan to bring this problem to my dentist attention in the next few days.
Avatar f tn Without a complete history, physical exam, lab review and medication list, I can’t give you an exact diagnosis or treatment plan. Since you haven’t mentioned anything, I am assuming you’re a relatively healthy patient without diabetes and without anything wrong with your kidneys (your creatinine is normal?) and without any abnormality on the EKG.
Avatar m tn Notice that I said that I wouldn't suggest the diet plan that I gave for long term use. The diet plan that you gave is similar to that for people who have already made it through the first three months. And I made clear that there was evidence that diet drinks cause an appetite. (Most doctors recommend them to ween you off regular sodas) If you take one meal per week to eat things like fried chicken and mashed potatoes and gravy, then you'll never acquire a taste for the more healthy foods.
Avatar f tn I read the same article, but it was for a link with Type 1 diabetes or Juvenile diabetes, not Type 2. I have Type 2 diabetes and was diagnosed with it about a month after being diagnosed with Crohn's. My father has Type 2 and had Ulcerative Colitis also.
Avatar n tn He is on a low potassium diet as well as a low protein diet. He has never used additional salt. For the past two years he has had periodic bouts with tingling hands and feet, swelling feet, burning feet, to the point that he is unable to stand. These bouts last from one to two weeks. He has at least 3-4 bouts a year. He thought it might be gout but none of his doctors think so.
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 I know this is hard, my husband is an insulin dependent diabetic, but now thru eating correctly he may be getting of insulin. It took him years to accept how big a role diet plays in diabetes, he learned the hard way. Best of luck to you!
Avatar m tn http://www.betterbones.com/alkalinebalance/dietplan.aspx WHAT NOT TO DO =================== One thing you will strictly avoid is RICH CURRIES with lots of oil in them. Strictly AVOID NSAID Painkillers, skipping meals,Tea Coffee & Alcohol during this period. Tea coffee can be had once you have cured your sensitive stomach by taking TRIPHALA capsule for 7-10 days.
Avatar m tn I am a 50 year old woman with adult-onset diabetes controlled by diet and exercise. Otherwise, no real problems. I am about 60 pounds overweight.
