Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic diet plan control sugar


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.
1085545 tn?1284045854 Unfortunately, you don't get rid of diabetes, but you can control it with a combination of proper diet, exercise and perhaps some oral medications if you are Type 2. You need to get much more information and perhaps meet with a diabetic educator to figure out what will work for you. Good luck. This disease can be managed with knowledge and proper attention.
Avatar n tn The only way to maintain good health is to inject insulin, carefully monitor blood sugar, and eat a healthy balanced diet. Type II Diabetes is different because the body still produces insulin, but has a harder time using it efficiently. Type II Diabetics usually maintain their illness with food plans and exercise. Some Type II take pills and sometimes have to take insulin injections as well.
Avatar f tn As you know, eating properly is key if (some can't) it can be controlled by diet! And, if you are switching sugar w/ fruit sugar - please be careful! Quantity and combo is going to be a sticking point on this. For example, breakfast may look like this: 1/2 of a banana 6 crackers (saltless) spoon full of protein (peanut butter) 1/2 cup of milk Remember combos and quantity for stability. Each day for breakfast, I had 1/2 banana 3 saltless saltine peanut butter sandwishes.
Avatar n tn There's no reason to be scared that you won't have a good quality of life, but do find a doctor you trust because the sooner you can get those blood sugar levels under control, the better you'll feel. In the meantime, be patient with yourself as you'll probably need a few weeks to find the right routine, dose of insulin etc. that works for you. I hope your family is being supportive, please reassure them that you'll be fine but that you must be attentive and patient.
Avatar f tn It is very important for your baby that your blood sugar be controlled. Some people can do this with just diet and exercise, some people need oral medication and some insulin for the duration of the pregnancy. Your doctor will advise you to get a glucose meter (or give you one free) and to test your blood sugar at specific times. He will tell you what your target blood sugars should be and what you need to do to achieve that.
Avatar n tn keep exercising - that's going to be a really good thing to get into a routine. the gym should have personal trainers. if you can afford a session or two, try it...maybe that would give you some more ideas to add to your workout. google "diabetic diet." start eating like a diabetic needs to eat to control the disease. know what i mean? if you can follow that plan, it will help you a lot. don't get discouraged about the weight not coming off right away.
Avatar f tn org to find a Registered Dietitian (RD) in your area that will help you with a diabetic diet meal plan or contact a Diabetic Center where you live for help. Thank you for your question.
Avatar f tn Try to think positive though, worrying won't help your baby. Talk to your diabetic nurse, diabetic midwife, community midwife, doctor, obstetrician, and ask them any questions you have or tell them your concerns. They should be able to help. Good luck with your pregnancy.
Avatar n tn Just remember, that even tho' a diabetic might go for hours, days, weeks or months with 100% normal blood sugars (with a combination of diet, exercise, meds) -- that diabetic is STILL a diabetic -- unfortunately. Type 2s often face the challenge of being told, after many decades of certain ways of living, that they need to change their habits (foods, exercise, weight loss).
6726276 tn?1421130268 I do better without refined sugar in my diet with my bipolar challenges. There's something wrong with sugar & mental health. What do you think?
Avatar f tn I thought low-carb would help me conquer the holidays because I could eat some semi-normal food just on Christmas (except for the carbs!) and not do any damage to my blood sugar control. Thank you. i guess I just don't understand what the proper diet is for a prediabetic.
Avatar n tn The insulin im taking now is less then a quarter what i was taking when i was diagnosed and i can pretty much eat, do, drink anything without it making my sugar go high. If anything, my sugar is low. All my A1c's have been compeltly not diabetic, and it has all my docters scratching their heads wondering how im doing so good. I havnt been on a diet or eating plan for over 2 years, and i havnt really watched my eating like a normal diabetic should for the same amount of time.

Avatar n tn I'm a diabetic... I had a miscarrage about a year ago... could I still have children? Is this hindering me to have children?
Avatar n tn They would be the signs of high blood sugar. I get crabby when my blood sugar levels are high. Does she constantly go to the bathroom. Is she very thirsty. Is she lethargic and sleepy and moody? Her vision could become blurry. Sometimes I would get sores in the corners of my mouth if my blood sugars were high. Does this help?
Avatar f tn and cutting out sugar. You should ask the doc or midwife for diet advice. I was reffered to a diabetic team and dietician. Will probably have it all again with this pregnancy. If you can't control it with diet alone they will pit you on metformin which is what I had for the last five weeks. Baby gained healthy weight and I didn't gain too much at all which they said was because id followed the diet so well. If diet and metformin still cant stop your blood sugars being high they give insulin.
Avatar n tn I had to have a physical from my own doctor who had to sign some paper work from GHI and I had to have a blood test as specified from GHI Medical. I followed the 500 calorie diet religiously. I had plenty of energy to exercise which I did 5 - 6 aerobic work outs and 3 weight training work outs. I am a personal trainer and I was having an extremely frustrating time loosing weight after the birth of my 3rd child. Yes, I washed my hair and conditioned it.
Avatar f tn The typical first step would be to try an oral hypoglycemic medication (ie Glucotrol, Glucophage), is you can't get your numbers under control with diet/weight management (if weight is an issue). Let us know how it's going, feel free to ask any questions!
Avatar n tn If possible, meet with a diabetic educator who can help you establish a quality meal plan. Eating just tuna will not drop your blood sugar levels. You need to eat a well balanced diet. YOu can also go on the American Diabetes Association website for some nutritional guidelines. However, you need to speak with someone ASAP so that you can start to get your sugars under control and regular. Good luck.
Avatar n tn Testing and monitoring and adjusting insulin based on the blood sugar results will allow you to have better control of your blood sugar. But you also need to control what you eat, particularly the carbs.
Avatar m tn Regular exercise is usually recommended which would help in weight control as well as control of blood sugar levels. Aside medications, the total calorie intake and calorie distribution into carbohydrate, proteins and fats is important. You could see a dietician/ nutritionist for charting of a diet plan. Hopefully things would settle soon as the blood sugar levels become stable. Take care!
Avatar f tn Two and a half months ago I went to my dr for a routine check up and she did a CBC and also checked my blood sugar. My fasting sugar was 103 the first time and 110 the second visit. My hbA1c was 5.8 She said I have "pre-diabetes" and sent me to a nutrionist. The nutritonist gave me a glucose meter so I could check my bs after meals and fasting. After two months of excercise and diet change I have lost 15lbs.
649848 tn?1534637300 I'm wondering what diet plans others have tried and what success you had, whether or not you kept the weight off, etc. If you didn't keep the weight off, would you try that same diet plan again, if so, why; if not, why? I don't believe in giving up entire food groups, such as carbs, protein, fats, etc. I believe the body needs a healthy mix of all the food groups. I'd really appreciate any ideas ya'll might have.
Avatar f tn I agree with second Dr. who says you are diabetic already and need to treat yourself (and control your diet and blood sugars etc., as such).
Avatar n tn I test my blood sugar every day and so far it is still very much under control despite the fact that I eat 1/2 c of Haagan Daaz at 10:30 each night. I make a half of a peanut butter and butter sandwich and place it next to my bed for the morning and eat that with a glass of 2% milk. (I just can't handle whole milk.) My afternoon fat is usually half an avocado and Greek yougurt with 2% milk fat. Sometimes I supplement with a few tortilla chips.
Avatar n tn My husband is a newly diagnosed Type 1 diabetic. He just got out of the hospital with ketoacidosis and had an HA1C of 12.1. His sugars ranged from 160 - 380. We had this checked 6 months ago and everything came out "normal." Anyway, he is now on insulin, but we are having a hard time figuring out the whole diet thing. He has been put on a 75 carb/meal diet. He is 6'3" and weighed 150 lbs at the hospital, so he actually needs to put on weight.
1548538 tn?1293875433 If I do give in, and scrape a few dozen of them off, I can get them out form under my fingernails (gross, I know), and they look like grains of sugar or sand. They are hard like grains of sand. You can not "squish" them. They are not lice...my husband is an RN, and he has looked at my scalp many times, and we are certain of this.
