Diabetic diet plan ada

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic diet plan ada


Avatar n tn Type two can usually be controlled very well with diet and excersize sometimes if enough weight is loss a good diet is followed and an exercise plan, the need for medication can be eliminated. I would check with your doctor as to which type you might be and the best course of action to help you maintain healthy lifestyle. Please feel free to come back and visit.
Avatar n tn The only thing about a low carb diet is that a lot of Drs do not believe in it as they have all been brought up on the high carb way of living and think that the ADA diet is the only diet for diabetics. When I did the ADA diet I not only gained weight, but I could never keep my BG numbers in line (I was always high). Now I keep my numbers very, very close to normal doing the low carb. But be warned, Most people do not believe that you can eat low carb and get thin, but it is true.
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 n tn These seem to work much better for weight management and blood sugar control than the high carb diet recommended by the ADA (american diabetic association). Have you been given any meds? Metformin is usually a first line medication and quite helpful for most. If you do take metformin make sure you also take a B12 supplement.
Avatar f tn In addition to prescribing the medication, one would hope the doctor talked with your husband about what his blood sugar numbers mean and what the plan is. An even bigger question would be what did the doctor suggest about diet and exercise? Some doctors do prescribe a small dose of diabetes meds if somebody is what they used to call "pre-diabetic", and yes, that is intended as a preventive measure. But they also recommend diet and exercise to keep the situation from progressing.
Avatar n tn Hashimoto's, 200mcg Synthroid, Type II diabetic - lost 60lbs over the past 4 months due to following the South Beach diet and working out every day.
Avatar f tn They have a food tracker and recipes on the ADA website- I'll check that out and I also plan to have a look at eMedTV Although I have not been diagnosed yet - I just want to be prepared.
Avatar m tn That range levels SHOULD READ: Non-Diabetic <6% Goal for Diabetic patient 8% Don't know what happened to my original info, when I pused send.
Avatar n tn //www.eatright.org/cps/rde/xchg/ada/hs.xsl/nutrition.html Here's also some diet recommendations for thyroid patients with weight control issues: http://thyroid.about.com/cs/dietweightloss/a/zonediet.htm http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/b/a/257562.htm?nl=1 I have to lose 10lbs that I put on post-RAI so I'm on the diet train with you. Keep us posted!
Avatar n tn I definitely need to learn more about diet and plan to do that. I have a tremendous amount of stress in my life right now and anything I can do to help my own health would be beneficial for those around me. Wish I could change doctors to one who is more supportive and especially informative, but that's probably not going to happen right away. Thanks again for your help. I truly appreciative it.
Avatar n tn But, then again, most schools (even if you do not have a 504 plan) send you home with a diabetic packet right before school starts or at the very beginning of the year - like 4-5 pages long or so and you fill in the treatment for hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia. They need to be educated. I URGE you to go to the below page and fill out the form. Yo will be connected with a volunteer to communicate via email one on one (hopefully me).
Avatar n tn It was awful as I had to eat a very restrictive diet to survive. Something like 1800 ADA diet. One think I know is that being on a restrictive diet lead me to be very rebellious as a teenager. I know they say the tighter control the better but sometimes this causes problems later on like it did for me.
Avatar n tn Meaning what percentage will your diet be fat, protein, and carbs. A good diet for the prevention and management of DMT2 is the Mediterranean diet. This diet is 50% carbs and then you can play around with your fat and protein intake giving one 20% and/ or one 30%. Your macros have to equal 100%.

Avatar n tn Substitute sugar for Splenda, go for 2% milk, DIET RITE soft drinks (Diet Dr. Pepper tastes good) ..... Important thing to remember - just because it's sugar free doesn't mean it's fat free, low sodium, or vice versa. When they take out one thing, they usually use another bad thing for us to fill it with. If the product is over 15 carbs - it has to be counted in your meals - that's life. Be sure to sit down with a Dietician to talk about meals and Exchanges.
Avatar f tn All of this gd worrying I am scared to eat a whole lot. I have cut out all the junk, and when I eat I try to eat as healthy (ada diet) as I can. To top it off, my fasting sugars have been high 3 out of the last 4 days, so I am going to have to call the doc, and I know he is going to put me on insulin. I give up!! During my appt yesterday my ob/gyn said you are "high risk" for a c section, because of the high sugars and the previa.
Avatar n tn My daily routine for years was go to work, buy two donuts and a diet coke, eat fast at my desk lol, and then at lunch I ate food from the hospital cafeteria-high carb food! Midafternoon? Vending machines were everywhere and we all bought candy or chips. At one point in time I stopped and took count and I was taking in 300 carbs a day!
Avatar m tn I've cut out any sweet Starbucks drinks, (tough the gf works there lol) and usually just have a Splenda-added unsweetened passion tea etc. I'm going to try and plan an appt to my father's diabetic specialist who is really really good. I guess my biggest worries are if there are side effects to the medicines they may recommend etc.
Avatar f tn I have recently gone back to monitoring my levels after tx ended (am and pm) and clealry have some actions to take like getting back on the track with diet (not real bad now) and crank up the exercise further. Bad thing is that it's Girl Scout Cookie season around here.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately, I am an insulin dependent diabetic. I am in perfect health and physically fit. I have no complications after having this disease for over 17 years. No branch of the military will allow me to enlist due to the fact that I am a diabetic. Considering I am perfectly able to do anything that the military requires, I think this is extremely unfair and unjust.
393685 tn?1425816122 But I strongly recommend a lower carb diet. The typical American Diabetic Association diet for diabetics is very high carb. That is the WRONG way to treat diabetes. If I followed their diet I would have to be on insulin, no 2 ways about it. Oh, when I was unmedicated hypo I was eating about 800 calories a day and still gaining weight..... proper medication level is critical for weight management in hypot. May not make it easy, but is the difference between very hard and impossible.
Avatar n tn htm What you may want to consider is many people with thyroid conditions also develop Type II diabetes and the diabetic diet (carb control) is very similar to the Zone, South Beach, etc.: http://www.diabetes.org/nutrition-and-recipes/nutrition/overview.jsp http://www.eatright.org/cps/rde/xchg/ada/hs.xsl/nutrition.html What I'm wondering is if you have an autoimmune thyroid condition. Your TSH climbed over 300 for a reason and I'm wondering if it is Hashimoto's or another autoimmune disorder.
Avatar n tn If you do any research on dark chocolate, or just listen to the news you would know that dark chocolate is so good for you that doctors feel it should be in a food group all it's own! Chocolate can be poisonous to dogs, but have never known one to become sick or die from eating it. But we're not talking dogs here. If you start talking about every little thing that can be harmful, you'll not only drive us crazy...but yourself! Got high blood pressure? Try a truffle. Worried about heart disease?
92903 tn?1309908311 (With a little hunting, I can find references for all these statements). When my brother became diabetic (defined by the ADA at that time as having a fasting blood sugar of 140 or more; nowadays it's 126), he was sent to diabetes class. A number of his fellow students, also newly diagnosed, already had retinal damage, amputations, neuropathies, etc. These were not people who had neglected medical care. They were simply diagnosed too late.
Avatar n tn Atkins is a carb-control weight program that is based loosely on the American Diabetic Association's program (the ADA program is much better though - much more balanced). Have you had your blood sugar checked? Preferably with an hgA1C which has to be run by a lab? This test will tell how well your blood sugars are being controlled. Fasting and limiting yourself to 900 calories a day could really be detrimental if you are diabetic.
Avatar n tn Tom,I must start off by saying. Methadone is horrible to detox. It's the hardest. I did not get on methadone to detox. I take it because it is medicine>> like insulin to the diabetic, steriods(cortisone) to the rhematoid arthritic (my spelling I know),heart meds to the person with heart disease,blood pressure medicine to hypertensive, dilantin to the epileptic,etc. & etc. No one says to this group of people its hard to stop insulin,cortisone,dilantin,etc.
1632656 tn?1310696871 well,, this is a strange one,,, My Endo hasnt ruled out Cushings yet but she is wanting to look at me for RSD???? where did that one come from???
Avatar f tn Surely it couldn't be from the mercury fillings in my mouth that the American Dental Association (ADA) and FDA both says are completely safe!' At that point, I began to research metal fillings and their potential effects on people's health. I found some very interesting information online with regard to Mercury poisoning. It was the very first time I have seen all of my symptoms described together. It is like I wrote it myself: "...
Avatar n tn But by the time I get home from work my tongue is almost completely orange again. I've also had a sore throat since I noticed it. My diet has not changed nor has any medication that I take. Not sure if I need to go to the doctor or a dentist.
Avatar f tn Am I the only one???? I don't think the ADA or the implant manufacturers want to investigate the possibility of this lucrative procedure being a problem for anyone, so it is hard to find any data supporting my suspicion. Thanks.
Avatar n tn it's just a case of trial and error. try some indigestion meds, give them about a week, change your diet: cut out foods that you feel don't agree with you. i cut out carbohydrates, carbonated drinks, fruits such as oranges that are acidic and also vegetables that can cause gas such as broccoli etc. it won't harm you just give it a try. i definitely saw an improvement and i've only been trying it for a week now!
