Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic diet guidelines nutrition


Avatar m tn My Mom's husband is, and I always had lower blood sugar, so I do my best to follow a diabetic diet as I find I feel much better. Now in the foodregardss. You want your grains to be as close to nature as possible. Brown rice, not white rice. UncleBen'ss might be a lower score due to fat added in the rice mix? You can cook red potatoes in a little oil ( I like olive oil) and then you just reduced the g-load.
1720613 tn?1309436204 Proper nutrition means to accentuate the positive when it comes to food. I dislike the word diet. “Diet” implies a rigorous, self-sacrificial discipline that’s doomed to fail. Instead, focus on achieving food goals of what you should eat each day rather than what you shouldn’t eat.
Avatar n tn If you feel your doctor isn't giving you the support you need to learn how to manage your diabetes, then you are right and you need to seek a different doctor, nurse practitioner or diabetic educator. You need someone to help you find the diet and exercise regime that works for you; we are all different, some people prefer to follow a set diet with mealplans and menus, Others (like me) prefer general guidelines that I can follow and find what works best for me.

Avatar n tn Hi! Is anyone starting the HCG diet on Black Friday? I will be doing it 4 weeks thanksgiving to christmas? Do you want to start a support group?
Avatar n tn The vet suggested putting him on a diet. I started him on strickly dry food (Iams weight control). He gets a 1/3 cup in the morning and 1/3 cup in the evening. He does not get any treats. As you can see from his present weight, he has continued to gain. I've read articles about moist vs. dry food and brought the issue up to my Vet. He felt that the dry was fine and that I should continue with the diet. It is obviously not working and I would like to ask your opinion.
Avatar n tn Don't buy the expensive drinks and stuff and DON'T assume that diet foods fit within the ADA guidelines. Read labels and watch the carbs - you'll be shocked how many carbs are in some diet drinks! There are a few popular diets and their prepackaged meals that work okay for the Type II diabetic - South Beach is okay for the most part (not all of it), Atkins is okay. Read the ADA's web site and you'll get some great info.
Avatar f tn I take meds for hypertension and cholesterol and I also take synthroid. About 6 months ago I started a low carb diet for my overall health because heart disease is in my family. I cut out processed foods, bread, white potatoes, pasta, crackers, candy, cereal, desserts. My diet consists of salads with reduced fat dressings, salmon, chicken, tuna, occasional steak, green vegetables, occasional sweet potato, nuts, cottage cheese, greek yogurt and Atkins bars.
Avatar f tn I am now in the dilemma of having to eat a LOW-TO-NO FIBER, LOW-TO-NO-FAT, and HIGH NUTRITION diet! I have no idea what to eat. Pretty much any fiber hurts my Crohn's (left side), any fat hurts my gallbladder (right side and back), and not eating will only starve me more. I need to eat! I HAVE to drink the boost in the morning, that's no fiber but 4 g fat. Fat-free yogurt seems to be good as it has nutrients but no fiber or fat. I can tolerate egg whites only, the yolks are too fatty.
Avatar f tn Start eating a healthier nutrition by cutting out animal fats to get your lipid panel back to normal. Google search diabetes nutrition and follow the guidelines before you become a diabetic.
Avatar m tn What I AM saying is that you need to use care and follow the guidelines for diabetic nutrition. If you have an Endocrinologist, a diabetes doctor, or a diabetes nurse, or a nutritionist they can help you a lot with nutritional guidelines. (Serving sizes, and how many servings of each type food that's safe for you.) If you cannot bring down your glucose [blood sugar] levels by the above recommendations you must resort to medication to help control your glucose levels.
Avatar m tn By eating a proper nutrition/diet, exercise daily, and maintain a healthy normal body weight along with keeping normal cholesterol and blood pressure levels you have an excellent chance of keeping diabetes out of your life.
733939 tn?1231776955 I agree with the person who said not to think of it as a diet but as good nutrition. Please don't be afraid to eat! As a diabetic, you need regular meals to stay balanced. I like to think of it that way....balance; you don't want to be too high OR too low. So don't skip meals! Your numbers may be high for awhile until the meds, nutrition and exercise begin to balance things out. Also, doctors often start you on just one medication and then add one or two more.
Avatar f tn I have been told by my doctor that I am diabetic I would need some help with a diet plan and best way to control glucose level
Avatar m tn If your postprandial elevates as high as posted it is quite obvious your food plan/diet/nutrition is in need of adjustments. Use Google to search for diabetic foods to avoid. Your moniker assumes Asian Indian ancestry. If so, search for diabetic Indian foods and diabetic foods in India. Both return lots of hits.

Avatar m tn Thanks for posting back and clarifying who you are. Is Jerry eating "so much, so often" because he's hungry or trying to gain back lost weight in a hurry? If the latter, Jerry needs to know that binge eating does more harm than good and what he eats plays a large part in glucose levels. Glucose spikes - rapid high then rapid dropping - is hard on the cardio system. That is why I say well proportioned meals, eat until one feels full and then stop.
1096641 tn?1271710825 I was recently told that I am borderline diabetic and the endo gave me a meter to check my sugars with...and I checked them when I spontaneously got itchy last week...the number was 147 or some such. Last night I was itchy too...my sugars were 143....but a few hours later i was still itchy and my numbers dropped to 106. Does this happen to anyone else? Is my itchiness related to my blood sugar?
Avatar f tn Denial won't help you out on this one, action will. Once diabetic, always diabetic. But you can be a diabetic in 'remission'. Count yourself lucky that you are being given good notice to change things before the damage is irrepairable.
535822 tn?1443980380 Hurray !! BUT, I am still diabetic and will have to follow the ADA diet forever or my sugar will fluctuate all over the place. I have lost a lot of weight doing this, and the weight loss has helped my moods also. I feel for you as willpower is not my favorite friend !!!
Avatar f tn In fact, all pregnant women are slightly diabetic anyways NATURALLY. What you can do is eat a diabetic diet to help control it. As far as diet is concerned, it's not about eating sugar. It's about eating, balancing, and timing. One person said to eat lots of veggies....I know carrots are bad for MY gestational diabeties, so not good advice there. EVERYTHING you eat turns to sugar in your blood. Red peppers, milk, cereal, lettuce, whatever - it all turns to sugar.
469720 tn?1388149949 You don't have to exercise strenuously to achieve benefits, but you can see bigger benefits by increasing the intensity, duration and frequency of your workouts. 3. Eat a heart-healthy diet Consistently eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy products can help protect your heart. Legumes, low-fat sources of protein and certain types of fish also can reduce your risk of heart disease. Limiting your intake of certain fats also is important.
Avatar m tn These are all important in managing this illness, the most important, along with proper nutrition, is physical activity. Besides watching sugar in your diet-- you also need to watch carbohydrates [starches] carefully too. For example-- things like breads, potatoes, pasta, crackers, etc. can cause a drastic rise in your blood sugar if you aren't careful. [They are converted to sugar after you eat them].
Avatar m tn im 39 in january of this year i suffered a stoke and found out i am diabetic .my father had it and lived until he was 81 .he managed it well.he was not on insuline. i take two pills for it in morning and at night also insulin 3 times humalog and lantus at night .irt has been hard to stay on a diet i am out of work was a union carpenter and unemployment has run out so i cant afford to be to picky about what i get to eat and the weight is not coming off.
Avatar n tn hypertension You are not a smoker I assume you are not a diabetic You didn't mention a family history of a first degree relative (father, mother, sibling) with an MI before the age of 55 in men and 65 in women. I am certain that menopause is not a concern either..... Based only one cardiac risk factor, your LDL is appropriate at 113. Your triglycerides are a bit elevated at 253, however, I bet with some diet and exercise they would fall down.
2094297 tn?1345392693 Change your diet rapidly, and completely. It will be very hard at first, but you can get there. You might even feel pretty bad during the first week, but it is worth it. The following guidelines have been developed by a hospital in Germany for diabetes patients, and they called it LOGI (low gi). My Dad eats like this for 5 years, and he is pretty fine on it. I am a nutrition scientist, and I could not find anything wrong with it, either.
Avatar f tn 3.) If anyone else has had difficulty with eating/tasting food, please comment on if/when that changed. What type of diet worked best for you? I'll be home with my dad for the next two weeks just to focus on getting him stronger through diet. I'm looking up lots of diabetic recipes. In other forums I have read that taste gradually came back for many post tx patients. My dad is longing to be able to enjoy food once more. Please see UCLA's "Adult Liver Transplant" web page at...
488724 tn?1253554835 Yes. The side effects of diabetes has no age limit/boundaries. Being in the 300-400 range is dangerous and you're eyes are getting the worse of it from your bad habits. Relying on medication is not the way to go either. What has to change is your "poor control", no ifs or buts. Please get your nutrition under control, do moderate exercise, and continue to lose the weight.
