Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic diet exchange chart


390388 tn?1279639813 You might look up exchange lists too they are much easier to follow than the glycemic diet (although a list of low glycemic foods is good to follow). I personally think exchanges are easier and less time consuming than trying to figure out the glycemic load of foods. http://www.mayoclinic.
Avatar f tn We type 2's should also occasionally test before we eat, just to see how low we go, but mainly we want to know our fasting and post-prandial readings. The nurse educator also gave us a food exchange diet, which wasn't much different from the way I normally eat - AND it didn't do a thing to lower my blood sugar. So take what they say with an open heart, but you'll have to do your own research on your own body to really learn what's needed to lower your glucose readings.
Avatar m tn If your father has CAD, and collateral blood flow and you are concerned there may a genetic component for CAD, you need to take precautionary measures to prevent CAD such as control your cholesterol, blood pressure, proper diet, exercise, etc. However, my notes on the subject from a few years ago indicate there is evidence why some people with diabetes do not have adequate blood supplying collaterals. There is a biological component associated with diabetes and the cardiovascular system....
1018470 tn?1251337123 "I have looked up the conversion from Naturthroid's website, but everyone says to go slow. " That is your answer. Whatever the chart says, i would go a little lower. You have two choices in starting out Nature Throid. The TEMPORARY result will be medically induced hypo, or medically induced hypER. Its near impossible to get it just right as the body has to adapt to the increased T3 in Nature Throid.

We are not discussing whether that is appropriate surgery. The IOL and refractive problems are the same as those having cataract surgery. 5.

530191 tn?1214166411 I am taking her to a holistic nutritionist tomorrow in hopes that a change in diet will help. I will let you know if it works. I guess she will be put on a special diet for one week.
Avatar n tn Plus, I don't think people should be given a pill just for weight loss. It is a good benefit, but exercise and diet are a better way. It's fair to us because we need the medication to aid other needs.
Avatar n tn The first thing that comes to mind and is a concern is whether you are diabetic or have you had your sugar checked? If you have sugar you can sometimes get an odor to your urine and if you have sugar/dibetes it can be a big factor as to why you get this in the first place so if your not sure get it checked.
Avatar n tn I could go all day and not even think about eating, I make myself eat now and try to have a decent diet. My joint pain has slowly gotten worst and I have a bad back from a previous accident. I haven't worked in quite a while but I am alive which may not have been the outcome if I didn't do the treatment so what's the answer? I would like some bona fide information about the long term effects, certainly there are enough people out there who could start a campaign to find out how to do this.
Avatar n tn He has no pain, thus far, I believe because he is diabetic. He has had two massive heart attacks and never felt anything. Can we finally see a positive side to diabetes?? LOL Hospice is very helpful, I have worked with them with other family members. Do not hesitate to use them, if available. I am a newly graduated RN, but have seen enough to know that you should not hesitate to give pain medications to terminal cancer patients.... sometimes it is unbearable.
Avatar n tn I Do not correlate the initiation of these tremors with any particular event/diet/state of mind? I have not been able to determine what precipitates them. I have changed my diet, my exercise routine to no avail. I do have a bit of anxiety, but I truly believe it is as a result of the lack of sleep.
Avatar n tn I have tried cutting out alcohol, artificial sweetners, all allergy medication, diet soda, etc....and I can't get a direct link to anything that I'm injesting. I plan on purchasing a air purifier to see if that helps....have you tried that?
Avatar n tn The reaction can tell them all kinds of different things. They gave me a diet plan for migraines which seems to help and I don't need medication. They told me try it for 4-6 weeks and if it doesn't work they will prescribe me migraine medicine. I hope this helps. If you want a copy of my diet plan to try or any more information, I would be more than happy to give it to you.
Avatar n tn I was eatting sooo much sugar daily, that my blood was so hyperglycemic, that when I didn't eat and pump my blood with sugar, my blood sugar would instantly plumit (hypoglycemia) and I would pass out! I tried cutting out my sugars at that time. I switched to diet pop, bought sugarfree candy, but still wasn't as strict as I needed to be! Then i got pregnant for my 3rd child, and developed gestational diabetes. I never had that before! But this time I did.

Avatar n tn has actually anyone ever fainted because of WPW?? thanks, it s great to have this forum for exchange. have learned a lot from previous discussions!
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.
280700 tn?1210287416 I'm on clomid 100mg for the first month. I've lost 27 pounds through the medifast diet.it's September now and i started the diet in July so hopefully since I've lost weight I will ovulate. I go day 21 to get my blood taken..I really hope I ovulate. My husband's leaving for Afganstan in December so we only have 2 months to try..I pray it works quickly!
Avatar n tn never knew what it was but it's like we exchange thoughts ....and it can be any kid... If i pass by a kid, he/she always turns and looks at me...
Avatar n tn my period is about 2 months late today i had a stick pee preg test at the doctors, they said it was neg, but i am having all the same signs i did with my one and only baby that i was preg with a few years ago, soo its not making ANY sense, they did a blood test to check that i wasnt preg for sure, and are also checking for being diabetic and pcos, i really hope i dont have either and that im preg, i was so sure that i was that i was picking out baby stuff on walmart.
Avatar n tn Now, in all fairness, I've also changed my diet up recently, but I think I was seeing these problems start before that. I cut most all sugars and a lot of fat from my diet to keep from gaining weight as I age, and I think that has actually hurt me some to, even though it is a healthier diet. I think my body is reluctant to steal energy from fat cells or something when it coems to sex. In any case, holding back on porn/masturbation seems to help.
