Avatar n tn Along with avoiding sugary foods a low to no carb diet plan is recommended for t2 diabetics. Carbs to t2 diabetics are the same as sugar - elevates our glucose [blood sugar] above and beyond acceptable levels. A very good place to look for low carb recipes is the Atkins [diet] web site http://tinyurl.com/atkins-recipes . Replace sugar with artificial sweeteners such as Splenda or Stevia.
Avatar m tn 4 for my AC1 level. My diabetes doctor told me if I saw a weight lost doctor I could possibly have a chance of getting off of my insulin. Is that true?
Avatar f tn Doctor said that I am having gestational diabetes and referred me to a specialist next month. I am little worried when doctor discussed me about the complications.. What food habits has to be changed or incorporated to reduce this diabetes level? Any exercises that you people do?
Avatar n tn I am a type 1 diabetic and live what some diabetics may regard as a spartanesque lifestyle for wanting to control my diabetes. Since I now have high cholesteral and my doctor has not really provided me with vey many creative suggestions for countering this problem, I am comtemplating changing my eating patterns (possibly only eating fish as an animal product or going vegan), but am curious if many others have experimented with different diets.
Avatar f tn There is no "diabetes" diet Many diabetics fallow the "eat to your meter diet" (Google it) Test before you eat test 1 hour after you eat if your BG goes up more than 40 Pts (US) (2.3 for the rest of the world) you eat too many carbohydrates. carbohydrates raise BG ALL carbs raise BG If he is T1 (type 1) he has to take insulin.
8369322 tn?1397830269 I still dont know what drugs your taking or what your eating... as I said carbs raise BG ALL carbs whole wheat will raise your BG almost as much as plane wheat. I dont know what diet your folowing other than "this site" Well I just looked up "Diabetic Recipes: Super Bowl snacks" http://www.medhelp.org/diabetes/articles/Diabetic-Recipes-Super-Bowl-Snacks/332 this is diabetic freindly food? NUTRITION FACTS PER SERVING: Calories: 232, Total Fat: 3 g (1 g sat.
325405 tn?1262293778 I gained 90 pounds being pregnant (gestational diabetes which turned in to full blown diabetes) two years ago, and before that, I was normal weight. I have been watching calories the last two years, maintaining a diet of around 1200 to 1400 calories, but the doctor said that caloric intake with the insulin resistance thing was not going to help me, it's the carbs.
Avatar n tn This is very interesting to me, my son is 14 and diagnosed in April 2011. He complains of a headached several times a week and keeps saying he didn't feel this way until he was diagnosed!! He thinks maybe the insulin is the cause. I can't find any info on this except for highs and lows. And with him that's not the case. Would love to find out more about this.
Avatar f tn Also had a total meltdown one night because i just wanted to 'eat normal' lol. There are some great recipes out there for diabetics. Try some chilis or chicken quesadilla soup with just a few tortillas on the side, maybe. I find baking with splenda really cuts down carbs without killing the flavor, as well. and find a good nutritionist. Mine has been amazing and has really worked with me to find foods that i like and crave that will work on my diet.
Avatar n tn So, my first recommendation is that you find a doctor who is a specialist in treating diabetes. Your local Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation chapter may be able to recommned some names to you. The goal is for you to be able to eat a healthy and well balanced diet and to take the amount of insulin required for your body to be able to use that food effectively for energy and to keep you in general good health.
Avatar n tn Hey! I am 22 with type 1 diabetes. I was just diagnosed two years ago. My concern is this: I am getting married in December, and have been wanting to lose weight, but can't seem to find a way to get it off! Interestingly enough, I was scouting the web to see if there was anything on this topic, and found the message posted by lyn01 -- Funny, but I am having the EXACT same problem! I exercise five times a week, with both cardio and weight training.
Avatar f tn I just found out I have pre diabetes and high cholesterol and am overweight. About 60 pounds overweight. Ugh...so upsetting..I am.determined to get this under control without meds. Please if anyone can suggest apps or anything else it would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn My daughter has had diabetes for 10 years and has experienced significant weight gain. She has tried over the years to lose with diet and exercise but to no avail. She has recently done Weight Watchers for one month and followed it religiously. She lost practically no weight. She also exercise at least five times a week for an hour and a half. She is very frustrated and I don't have any answers. Unfortunately, her doctors over the years don't seem to be able to help.
Avatar n tn Wanted to know if you guys have any tips on snacks for diabetics as I am new at this. Plus I have a big sweet tooth. So good recipes would help! Thanks!
Avatar f tn This is all soo new to me, but I don't want to bore him by sending the same things in his lunch box day after day. My Diabetes Educator/Nutritionist has not been any help and I feel soo lost...
Avatar f tn First, go here and educate yourself http://www.diabetes.org/nutrition-and-recipes/nutrition/overview.jsp "the doctor said to cut out all sugar, but I love sweets! I can't imagine a day w/o a muffin, waffles, or chocolate hazelnut spread" This is what happens to diabetics when they ignore their doctor. Diabetes can damage your eyes, heart and blood vessels, kidneys, nerves, teeth and gums.
1666434 tn?1325265950 My husband's grandmother has Type II diabetes and we are now living close enough to her where we can have her over for dinners and to visit. My question is I don't want to serve her something that would not be good for her and I have no experience with diabetics at all. Can anyone suggest a good resource or food list that I should use?
7058746 tn?1393439020 Carbs turn into sugar so you have to make sure your not eating too many. I've found some great recipes on the diabetes association website. The internet can be scary to read but also you can find some very helpful information, there are so many recipes to choose from. Hope that helps and good luck! I'm 29 weeks with my baby girl and trying really hard to watch what I eat.
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 m tn Types of foods to eat and types of foods to avoid has been discussed numerous times on this forum. Read other threads for tips and also use Google search for ideas on diabetics foods and recipes.
Avatar n tn They have sample menus,recipes etc aswell as a wealth of personal experience, including with borderline or pre-diabetics. Hope this is helpful;good luck.
Avatar f tn Here are some tips I posted on another thread some time ago.... Changing lifestyle habits can go a long way in controlling type 2 diabetes. Restrict & avoid refined sugars, practice and adhere to weight control, do some sort of exercise daily, practice stress management, and get adequate sleep. These are all important in managing this illness, the most important, along with proper nutrition, is physical activity. Walking, not strolling, helps to lower blood sugar levels.
728239 tn?1265140927 Sores, blisters, breaks in the skin, infections, or build-up of calluses should be checked right away by a doctor Foods. Research diabetes recipes; eat more vegetables and eat less red meat. Eat fruits but not alone. Eat with something else to lessen the absorption of fructose (fruit sugar). Test before and after eating fruits. Not all diabetics can eat fruits without their glucose rising. Eat healthy, live well, thrive.
535822 tn?1443980380 //www.everydayhealth.com/publicsite/recipes/viewall.aspx?filterletter=P Just look for the recipes that you need health wise. You can find ones for diabetics, heart issues, gerd etc. As for me I eat pretty healthy. My problem is not eating often enough. You really have to force yourself sometimes to eat 3 times a day. I hope that helps you a little. Hopefully someone else can answer better than I. Just my two cents worth. ;-) Best of wishes; Amy.
Avatar n tn So, do you need to buy a cookbook specifically for diabetics, NO! Look for a cookbook, though, that includes the dietary content for all their recipes. There are various websites where you can type in recipes where the dietary information isn't known or available, and they will compute that for you. Two good ones are: www.nutritiondata.com and www.calorieking.com At these sites you can put in family recipes and know how to offset them with your insulin dose. Hope all this helps . .
Avatar n tn Everytime I look up info on the web, I am taken to a diabetes website. She has not been diagnosed with diabetes. What are her chances of becoming diabetic? Her doctor said hypoglycemia sometimes precedes diabetes in children. Is is possible to "grow out of" hypoglycemia? If so, what are the chances of this happening?
Avatar n tn I am a student at San Francisco State university and I am creating a magazine for teen girls with Type 1 Diabetes for my senior thesis project. My sister was diagnosed when she was 5 and now that she's 13, things are getting more difficult. I decided that a magazine aimed specifically at teen girls with diabetes might be helpful. It is going to be almost like a fashion magazine covering issues like eating disorders to politics but in a way that is interesting and accessable.
733939 tn?1231776955 Stay away from sugary foods and food containing bad carbs. These will raise your glucose levels. Google diabetes nutrition for other good recipes and food ideas. 2) Being over weight plays a large part in keeping your glucose levels above normal. Lose weight and you see those levels drop accordingly. 3) And, the last one is moderate exercise. Walking helps a lot, even a stationary bike. Some kind of exercise to get your blood to circulate helps in reducing excess glucose.
1666434 tn?1325265950 Once there use the search string 'diabetes recipes'. Try to avoid glucose raising foods such as potatoes, pasta, honey, and raisins and of course sugar.
Avatar f tn I am going to go on the Nutrisystem diet (for diabetics, as I became a diabetic, too) and would like any input on this diet. Also, I went to a new endo doctor and he said that no matter how I gained the weight, I had to lose it the same way, and he said he would prescribe Phentermine. I have severe PTSD, and anxiety, and even a benedryl will launch me into a panic attack.
