Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic diet plan cookbook

Avatar n tn I have an 8 yr old daughter who has type I diabetes and is a "brittle diabetic". We are very strict with her diet, but still struggle to keep her bs down as it is common for it to be in the 450 range. We have tried different kinds of both long and short acting insulins and there is no difference. I was wondering if anyone knows of a service that you can use to make out weekly menu plans.
Avatar f tn My doctor wants to put me on the hcg diet as I am diabetic and 40 pouns. My biggest problem is that I am a vegetarian and the fish, veal, chicken, etc. is nt a possibility for me. Are any of you out there a vegetarian. Can anyone give me some help.
Avatar n tn Those folks are well-steeped in the food, nutrition, insulin- covering practices and a good one will help you plan a healthy college lifestyle. I hope someone else posts with a good cookbook recommendation, because I don't have any specifically for diabetics. I use regular ones and, as you will over time, I've learned to use them for ideas & to adjust ingredients as needed to be more DM-friendly. Are you doing plenty of finger-sticks on a regular basis.
Avatar n tn It will still take work/diet, probably a life style change forever. So select a diet with a maintenance program that you can live with. Sometimes after being on a diet for a while our body sort of gets lazy, stuck with the same diet, like being immune. So choose two diets that you can alter when one stops working for you, then back to the other diet, when the second stops working.
Avatar n tn Her GI doctor ordered a trial of enzyme replacement therapy called Sucraid. From my research, it seems that she needs to be on a very strict diet as well. I just don't know where to start because I'm not getting much information from her GI doctor and I was wondering if anybody knew of a doctor that I could call who may have some information about this disease and how to treat it.
Avatar n tn If you are looking for someone in North Carolina, I go to Totally Fit For Life in Shelby, NC. There is a NP and a dietician there. They give you the diet plan, HCG injections (2 per week) and appetite suppresants. It is expensive. $150 first visit, $75 each month after that, pills $30, Injections $10 each. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn My mother (my roommate) is a diabetic so; we’ve been eating our meals based on her diet. LOW CARBS, NO SUGAR, lots of salmon and chicken. When I do fall off the wagon, the sugar does upset my stomach. So, no more refined sugar for me. I use replacements like Agave Nectar (light), honey crisp apples or Vita waters for my sweet tooth. Had to cut out Blended Espressos with Caramel too. I read somewhere that bakery goods and foods made with flour are no very good for us either.
Avatar n tn I am allergic to EVERYTHING that one is to avoid on the basic elimination diet. The basic elimination diet has people avoid wheat, but I can't have any gluten either. I know what you're talking about with not being able to eat bread, because there just aren't many bread options. If you're not allergic to rice, there are breads and pastas made from rice sold at Trader Joe's. The only bread I've actually found is brown rice tortillas. It has few ingredients and NO PRESERVATIVES.
Avatar m tn It really interferes with his daily life....like, he won't want to plan a birthday dinner because he's afraid he'll have his 'thing' (as we call it) and he won't be able to eat. Seriously, though...we've been trying to figure this out for years, and no 'chemosensory disorder' seems to fit the symptoms.. I think one of the biggest things is the fact that the symptoms are not always present, that they have to be set off---as in sneezing, or something like that. My husband is 27...
Avatar n tn So at this time, its trial and error til we find what meds will work best for me, as I continue with the external treatment plan that I was already on. I would suggest going to a Dermatologist and being persistant on getting answers. If you go to WebMD and start searching, there are many different things it could be that's causing the same little bumps.

Avatar n tn 25 kg/m2, exercising at least 30 min daily, and eating a healthy diet). That study found that even in men who were already following a very healthy lifestyle, the consumption of 1 or 2 drinks per day was associated with a 40% to 50% decreased risk of MI (Fig. 2).[6] Patients with hypertension also appear to benefit from moderate alcohol consumption. In a recent 16-year longitudinal study of 11,711 hypertensive men, 1 drink per day reduced the risk of acute MI by approximately 30%.
