Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes type 2 diet recommendation


Avatar m tn Dreamfields has 65% less digestive carbs than other brands making it much safer to consume FOR Type 2 diabetics. Dreamfields targets the Type 2 diabetic community NOT neither Type 1's nor Type 1.5/LADA diabetics.Those in the latter group may encounter inconsistencies.
Avatar n tn Hi Dalki, Yes, in time your doctor will likely know for sure which type of diabetes you have. In addition to Type 1 and Type 2, there seems to be a type 1.5 ... tho' there's some thought that 1.5s are just in the early stages of Type 1. We DMers (folks with diabetes mellitis) and our docs often call that a honeymoon phase. I hope you're feeling better now that your bloodsugar has begun to come down. Things may remain volatile for a while, so try to be patient with yourself.
1469903 tn?1286650297 Of all the patients with diabetes, only approximately 10% of the patients have type 1 diabetes and the remaining 90% have type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes was also referred to as non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), or adult onset diabetes mellitus (AODM). In type 2 diabetes, patients can still produce insulin, but do so relatively inadequately for their body's needs, particularly in the face of insulin resistance as discussed above.
Avatar n tn As far as hunger went, I was only slightly hungryfor the first 2-3 days, but after that I wasn't hungry again. I did use the 2 apples a day between meals as my snack. I drank alot of water, I live in Texas and it is really hot here so I am use to drinking lots of water. I worked out hard. It took my mind off the diet. What really impressed me about his protocol is the way my body was being reshaped. My waist got very small, mu stomach very flat. I have nicely defined arms and legs.
Avatar n tn I am so sorry that your friend is having this emotional seesaw problem. I am hesitant to blame her mood swings entirely on diabetes, for many type 1 diabetics are even-tempered and happy people, but I DO want to tell you that many parents notice that their type 1 children are irritable or hyperactive or just "not themselves" when glucose levels are either high or low. So my first suggestion to you is to encourage her to try to even out the glucose levels.
Avatar n tn First, you must realize that there is a huge difference in the treatment of type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. For the type 2 diabetic, I also have read (from the Atkins people) that their diet is a good way to lower glucose levels. This is logical for the type 2 diabetic, for eating a fairly low-carbohydrate diet would not require the production of as much insulin by the already stressed pancreas.
Avatar n tn But Westman says rapid weight loss isn't the only benefit of a ketogenic diet, which has been found effective in treating epilepsy, reverses type 2 diabetes, and preventing heart disease. New research indicates the low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet fights depression and bipolar disorder. In fact, Dr. Westman said people who follow a high-fat ketogenic diet experience improved health across the board.
Avatar n tn She is 6 years old and was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes 1 1/2 years ago. Just a month ago she started complaining about stomach pain around her belly button. She only complains when she's really in pain. She also loves school and have been missing a lot of school because of the pain. At first it started out happening about every few days then it got more and more and now it was happening constantly. She said that she was always in pain but at times it would hurt very badly.
Avatar f tn since these things not only contribute to our weight issues, they can make us more susceptible to type II diabetes, heart and/or liver problems, etc. Dairy is an excellent part of a good weight loss plan, so if you aren't allergic or intolerant, I'd suggest going to the low/no fat varieties of milk, cheese, yogurt, etc. And let's not forget that exercise is a major part of our weight loss journey, so speaking of that -- I'd best go get started with my exercise.
Avatar n tn If weight gain is an issue, you should attack that independently from your diabetes management through conventional means (reduce intake, exercise, etc.) 2. Conventional wisdom today is that ACE inhibitors reduce internal blood pressure within the kidney, even when overall blood pressure is normal .I have normal BP, but my cardiologist has me take 2.5 mg of enalipril daily, as it is believed to lower the risk of kidney damage evening this case. 3.
Avatar n tn So, your boy should get between 0.51 and 0.55 cups per day (~ 1/2 cup of food, total, per day). So, by giving him 2/3 of a cup per day, you are still feeding him a bit more than he needs for weight loss. If you feel that feeding 1/2 cup total a day will leave him feeling very hungry and uncomfortable, I would suggest switching him to a veterinary prescribed therapeutic diet for weight loss.
Avatar n tn I'm trying the APPLE PATCH DIET right now. I've been using the patch for 2 weeks and I have lost 8lbs and I'm so excited!! I originally saw it on Good Morning America. It's more flexible than any other diet that I've tried bc it curbs your appetite and gives you lots of energy----All I have to do is change the patch every days. It's also F.D.A. approved. Usually I'm afraid of trying new diets but what won me over was the fact that it included all natural ingredients.
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".
479244 tn?1271567259 Incident type 2 diabetes was defined as fasting glucose levels of more than 126 mg/dL, self-reported type 2 diabetes, or use of diabetes medication. National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel 3 criteria were used to define MetSyn and its components. After adjustment for demographic, lifestyle, and dietary confounders, hazard ratios (HRs) were estimated for type 2 diabetes, MetSyn, and MetSyn components.
Avatar n tn My 2 1/2 year old has been throwing up alot. she has thrown up 4 times in the past 3 weeks and we know it is not the flu because I have a daycare and no one is catching this. She had a UTI and a upper respitory infection this past week and she is on an antibiotic so I thought this would take care of the problem but 5 days on the med. she is still doing this. Should I have the doctor do further tests on her?? I'm more concerned now because she hasnt been wanting to eat.
Avatar n tn I haven't taken any medications at all; I just added vitamins to my diet. The first 2 weeks were the worst. This weekend my legs hurt again, but it went away. My eyes were bothering me for several days (odd sensation like they were extra dry or straining) but that too passed. During this process I have had a nerve test, reflex tests, blood work and an MRI done. The MRI was to rule out the coincidence that maybe MS was a factor. All test results were normal.
Avatar f tn Per my PCP, he told me that I definitely have Hashi's because of having the TPO antibodies. I've always had alot of medical issue's, sinuses, kidney, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, triyglycerides, ect.now liver, ect. now knowing I have a autoimmune disorder or disease. I'm realizing why I've always had have so many health issue's. Anyhow, from the research I've done, if understanding correctly.
568322 tn?1370169040 TLRs are transmembrane proteins expressed by cells of the innate immune system, which recognize common structures on pathogens, known as pathogen associated molecular patterns (PAMPs), and activate signaling pathways that launch immune and inflammatory responses to destroy the invaders (see attached picture). TLR 2 and 4 interact with viruses and stimulate various pro-inflammatory and antiinflammatory cytokines.
Avatar m tn I just second the above recommendation. These seem to be symptoms of blood sugar that is out of control and needs your and a Drs attention. It might be that you could control this with diet but letting it go will only give the Diabetes more time to do damage to other organs--- and you don't want that.
231441 tn?1333896366 Got the munchies so bad. I want to EAT EAT EAT, anything in sight. Fortunately there's not much in sight. Am trying not to eat too much. 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).
174267 tn?1220408828 LJ, Thinking of you. Please give us an update when you can. Nicki, Only 2 more days til Monday! About Maria...yes, we'll have to see what they say. Immigration laws have gotten so much stricter, I'm sure you've heard about all the marches. We're hoping that they might be more lenient with minors and that she may qualify for a student visa and temporary citizenship. We'll have to see what the social worker says.
Avatar m tn High concentrations of glucose are toxic to nerves. There are various articles/blogs of those who have reduced or completely eliminated diabetic medication (reversed their diabetes) on a low carb high fat diet. This is info from Diabetes UK about the Low Carb High Fat Diet...
Avatar n tn In my husband's case, the oral medication (not insulin) has really helped keep his numbers in control, regardless of his diet. Please ask your doctor (preferably an endocrinologist) for a recommendation. Your diet is commendable-- I'm a 5'7 woman, and I'd have trouble eating that little! Good luck.

469720 tn?1388149949 Diabetes mellitus - Diabetes is an independent risk factor for stroke. Many people with diabetes also have high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol and are overweight. This increases their risk even more. While diabetes is treatable, the presence of the disease still increases your risk of stroke. Carotid or other artery disease - The carotid arteries in your neck supply blood to your brain.
Avatar f tn Normal fasting Preprandial [b4 meal] is 60/70 to 99 mg/dl Normal Postprandial [2-3 hrs after meal] should equal normal fasting. Type 2 diabetics should aim for <141 mg/dl, an improved goal is <121 mg/dl. You may find web sites touting postprandial up to 181 mg/dl which is, in my books, very high. And makes me wonder if drug firm sponsorship comes into play. The higher ones levels the more drugs one needs. The lower ones levels the least amount of drugs one needs.
Avatar n tn it all depends on how your particular Liver ,Pancreas and cells manage now that you have got your blood sugar levels down to where they should be. I was diagnosed Type 2 back in jan 2016. I was put on Glicazide 2x 80 mg a day . By reducing my sugar intake my BS level went from 28 mmol/L down to a fasting 5mmol/L within 3 weeks . After 4x weeks I cut my Glicazide in half to 40mmol/L and my BS levels stayed stable.
Avatar n tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Chronic constipation can be due to diet poor in roughage or fiber, dehydration, diabetes, hypothyroidism, colon disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticular diseases, cancers, severe acidity etc. It can also be due to milk allergy and other food allergies. A proper investigation is required preferably by a gastroenterologist (a doctor who looks after the digestive system) to know what is the cause. The treatment will follow correct diagnosis.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in January. I went on a diet and medforman and lost almost 100 pounds. Sounds great right!! I have had a gurgle stomach, acid reflex, and urgency to run to the bathroom. I went off my meds with dr permission. I also had an uptake done on my thyroid results are below. I did a colonoscopy and got normal results. Also did an upper ultrasound and everything was normal. So everything is coming back fine, but I am still sick.
Avatar f tn Losing weight is one of THE most important things (if not the #1 thing) you can do to get your glucose levels under control and to keep the pre-diabetes from advancing to a Type II diabetes. Diet management is important too, but it isn't just as easy as decreasing or cutting out "sugars", that's because there are many different KINDS of sugars, some are worse than others in the context of diabetes. It can be a little complex at first.
