Diabetic diet plan type 1

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic diet plan type 1


Avatar n tn im needing to find a simple diabetic diet plan. the doctor gave me one but it seems really complicated. does anyone know any good sources for diabetic diet plans?
Avatar n tn In your particular case, I am first concerned that you say you take Amaryl. If in fact you are a type 1 diabetic, you should not be taking Amaryl. I would say to find yourself a new doctor if he/she thinks that Amaryl is appropriate for juvenile diabetes. But, perhaps there is something I don't know. Otherwise, just cautiously play with your carbohydrate intake and your insulin dosages.
Avatar n tn Hi Dalki, Yes, in time your doctor will likely know for sure which type of diabetes you have. In addition to Type 1 and Type 2, there seems to be a type 1.5 ... tho' there's some thought that 1.5s are just in the early stages of Type 1. We DMers (folks with diabetes mellitis) and our docs often call that a honeymoon phase. I hope you're feeling better now that your bloodsugar has begun to come down. Things may remain volatile for a while, so try to be patient with yourself.
Avatar n tn I'm looking for information on the effect of diet pills on type 1 diabetic's. Specifically, I'm thinking of trying a product called cylaris. If anyone can give me any type of information, good or bad, or otherwise, I would truly appreciate it. Thanks again!
Avatar f tn I would like to find a diabetes diet/eating plan. Does anyone know where I can find one on the internet. I'm so addicted to sugar and I'm now eating fresh fruits to help with the sugar cravings. Any help is much appreciated. THANKS!!!
Avatar f tn Hi i am also pregnant and have been diabetic type 1 previous too pregnancy. It is a constant struggle to maintain sugar counts, but a good diet tip, protein (chicken,fish,beef,lean pork) vegetables, whole grain carbs. Stay away from fast food and processed food, small amounts of fruits, and avoid sugary drinks, lots of water is good to.
5623242 tn?1371130679 Hi im a type 1 diabetic very desprate to lose weight i have gone down nearly 9 inchs in 10 months but cannot seem to lose weight , im 4.11 and weigh 9st.
521895 tn?1212597611 I'm curious to hear stories of successes and complications from being a type 1 diabetic and also being pregnant. I'm not worried about GETTING pregnant, but I am a little worried about my brittle type 1 diabetes and the extreme swings - I go from high to low very quickly and vice versa - it's extremely difficult to stay in range even on a strict diet and insulin pump. When it comes time for me to get pregnant, what do I have to worry about?
1290943 tn?1272097364 I am a Type 1 diabetic and can't eat cereal at all. I eat eggs in any form for breakfast, plain scrambled, with vegies, omelettes, etc. I am able to eat one slice of good bread for toast. You can also find lower carb breads. Eggs are about the best for the morning as for many of us it is the time we can eat the least carbs. Has she figured out her insulin:carb ratios? Mine are definitely lower in the morning (mine are 1:7, 1:9 and 1:18). Btw this is the Type 2 forum!
Avatar f tn I can't find any studies which describe that, but that was the information given to me when I participated in the TrialNet study. Not having a history of type 1 doesn't really mean anything, type 1 is being diagnosed more and more often in children that have no history in their families. It's unfortunate, but true. My suggestion would be to continue to keep in contact with your endo and family doctor, followups will be necessary to verify glucose scores and the status of the pre-diabetes.
Avatar m tn Should I be following a diabetic diet which offers a similar type of exchange as I have described above. Relatives who have passed away on my mother's side all have suffered from Type II Diabetes. I just had my sugar tested today in the lab to see where my levels are at. I probably won't get the results until next week. I'm not looking for the grapefruit or cabbage type of diet, but something other then counting points on the W.W. plan. Counting points has no relevance to me.
Avatar n tn I am not a physician but a volunteer and the mom of type one diabetic, and the daughter of a type 2. You did not state which type of diabetes you have. If you have type 2 and have lost weight and exercise that would definitely keep your blood sugars lower. Also it depends on what type of foods you eat on how your sugar raises, and what type on insulin regimen you are on. You can be very luck y and be having a long honeymoon phase.
Avatar n tn Did they tell you if you were borderline Type 1 or Type 2. The two types are totally different. In type one the body stops producing insulin and a person needs to either take shots or have an insulin pump to get the insulin needed to live. Type 2 diabetes, the body produces insulin, but cannot use it properly with out medications, usually oral medication.
798555 tn?1292791151 Doc just says good exercise and diet. I do that! 1)What is a simple recommended diet to keep blood sugar low? I eat vary basic, would like to keep this as simple as possible. My diet is pretty much poultry for meat / protein, veggies , fruit. The only sugar I intake is in granola bars. I stopped eating potatoes last year. No white rice, only brown or American wild rice.
1536914 tn?1302705194 Instead, your medication needs adjusting. Call you healthcare provider. For diet – think Mediterranean. This is probably the best diet for diabetics, especially women. AARP had a good article on losing weight (and yes, I realize you are only 25) that you might still find useful. http://www.aarp.org/food/diet-nutrition/info-11-2010/lose_weight_without_really_trying.html Take care and hope all is going better for you.
Avatar n tn I live in NJ and I can't find a clinic in this state. There are a couple of questions I have. 1. On what website can I buy the hcg from? 2. Are most people following a 500 or 800 vlcd? 3. Are dieters washing their hair? Please answer "yes". 4. What are some of the menu options? I've read the Simeon's manuscript already. I feel that I keep reading the same info over and over again on several different websites without learning anything new.
Avatar n tn I have been following a low starch/no processed-food eating plan for 4 months and have lost 30 lbs. I have been a Type 1 diabetic for 32 years and haven't found anything that works for me until now. I have cut out bread, pasta, rice, potatoes (white or sweet), corn and sweets. It doesn't matter how "good" the carbs are supposed to be, they still increase your need for more insulin, and over time, this can lead to insulin resistance.
Avatar n tn Try to get a pump, especially if you are a Type 1. (I am a Type 1 Diabetic.) I don't know why this is not currently the standard for anyone who takes insulin as it makes a big difference and is the most effective treatment for stabilizing blood sugars. If your insurance denies you the benefit of this after your endo prescribes on.then be sure to APPEAL their decision - they are making a monetary decision and probably are hoping you won't appeal.
Avatar n tn I have had Type 1 diabetes for at least 22 years. I have struggled with very intense food cravings(even when I am not truly hungry or hypoglycemic) for as long as I can remember. I feel out of control of my appetite, even when my diabetes is under control. Why? Are the 2 related? Or am I just crazy?
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 n tn Even if this is not the real cause of her emotional issues, it may help her feel more in control and also may help alleviate depression or feelings of irritability. I, too, am a type 1 diabetic, and I have been very tightly controlled ever since the birth of my first child 26 years ago.

8369322 tn?1397830269 You don't need a diet plan but a healthier meal plan for yourself. We should not deprive ourselves being diabetic to eat good foods. Just to share with you, I still eat fish, meats, fruits, and vegetables. I have it baked, steamed, boiled, stewed just the way I like it. I had this meal last week (http://tgp.com.ph/blog/5-recipes-high-blood-sugar-bay/) see for your self. Also, remember canned and processed foods/fruits are superbly BIG NO NO!
Avatar n tn I want to let you know that none of us here are medical professionals ~ we are parents and spouses of type 1's or type 1's themselves. I am the mother of a now 18 year old son, so I can offer you suggestions from my personal experiences of the past 7 years of living with this disease. First, I'm happy to hear you'll be seeing the doctor tomorrow ~ is he an endocrinologist?
