Diabetic diet teaching plan

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic diet teaching plan


Avatar m tn in order to get to my goal weight. Other then Weight Watchers, can anyone recommend a diet or some kind of weight loss plan which has helped you. What I don't like about the current W.W. plan is keeping track of the points. It doesn't have enough structure for me the way the old W.W. plan did from the late 70's up until about 1997. The old "Exchange" plan told you what kinds and how many proteins, low fat dairy products, grains, starchy vegetables (i.e.
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 n tn From a multidimensional healing perspective, eating the right foods is one component of a solid depression treatment plan. Luckily, altering your diet to focus on the right carbohydrates, omega-3 fatty acids, as well as foods rich in the B vitamins and Vitamin D cannot only help lift your mood - but they also constitute a diet typically recommended for anyone with chronic Hepatitis C.
Avatar f tn Oh, as to a healthy eating plan. Take a look at the South Beach diet, phase 2. That's a good overall eating plan, with emphasis on lean meats and good, complex carbohydrates and fiber. Even if you don't need to lose weight, its a good way to eat for those prone to diabetes.
242516 tn?1368227505 http://www.livescience.com/health/081128-ap-oldest-person.html The oldest person in the world has passed away, at 115, and she had few points of wisdom to share. When asked she said her secret was "more education" although her own education finished with teaching school. Instead, she taught us by her own example: - she stayed active. She was seen pushing others around in her wheelchair in her nursing home. - she stayed with her family.
Avatar n tn everything done in a major university teaching hospital with computer charting, that now has decided I am too pushy about aggrressive care like IV antibiotics when I present as a diabetic with MRSA and cellulitis! I thought I was being pro-active. Once the WBC and d dimer came back, they drew blood cultures and started vancomycin, but it took 5 hours of hasseling me first.
Avatar n tn I think a diet that is low in sugar and low in preservatives is what is really important. I think people get way too hyped up on diet fads when the key all along is not a diet at all but an actual lasting change in your lifestyle in the form of a commitment to healthy eating + exercise. I was a vegetarian myself for a year and a half and I actually ended up quite ill as a result despite the supplements I was taking to make up for the meat I wasn't eating.
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.
572651 tn?1531002957 A quiet week ahead for me hopefully after an emotional rollercoaster last week as I celebrated my 5 month anniversary of MS ( only 2 mths official dx). Today I visited my friendly Chiropractor for my fortnightly session. Unfortunately, I have had to drop this to a once a month session as I have reached my insurance limit. Tomorrow I visit the Physiotherapist who is going to do a check up after a fall about a month ago and also develop a strength and exercise program for me.
Avatar n tn The best person to address these issues would be a liver specialist (hepatologist) who works at a large teaching hospital. They can help determine what the appropriate response to the steatosis is and what your best treatment strategy should be. They will also probably want to take their own look at the biopsy slides to better determine staging. I would not leave these decisions up to a gastroenterologist who has less expereince and may not be up on the latest studies.
1287446 tn?1313951238 I currently am about 140 pounds. My dad is a type 2 diabetic, diagnosed after having a stroke at the age of 45. He and my mom both have weight issues. The reason I mention all of this is because starting about 2 or so years ago, I began getting very weak at different times of the day. I didn’t know it at the time, but I believe I was actually addicted to caffeine because of this symptom and drank a lot of diet sodas that were high in caffeine.
726722 tn?1231459178 If you do suspect she has sensory integration dysfunction then an Occupational Therapist is the professional to assess for this and put together a treatment plan. You would need your doctor to refer you. Rubbing her chin could be a similar thing. Try giving her different types of fabric texture to see what she does with it eg. cotton, fur etc. Please post back to say if this is useful.
479244 tn?1271567259 There are too many variables that can influence whether somebody will become a diabetic or not besides having Hep C. Like....genetics, obesity/diet, yo-yo dieting, amount of exercise, use of meds (like steroids) that can increase the risk of diabetes, smoking (which can cause insulin resistance), previous exposure to toxins (like agent orange), HIV co-infection, lypodystrophy (fat atrophy and re-distribution), having other infections, use of supplements that decrease insulin resistance....
Avatar m tn Managing with exercise, biofeedback, meditation, and a low-fat diet. All pancreatic and liver functions were tested, everything look OK. Non-diabetic. Nothing odd in my immune system function. Late 20's, but no signs of demyelinating disease. Officially, it's idiopathic gastroparesis. Unofficially, a viral cause is suspected since symptomatic onset came after a bout with a prolonged flu. Recommendation was to remove the gallbladder as this might help my gastric emptying.
92903 tn?1309908311 I would guess that you're insulin challenged, at least, and that with the diet and exercise plan he suggested he hopes you can achieve and maintain adequate glucose control. I would also think that he would be able to tell you what he wants your PP to be, given that carb intake. Yes, strips are expensive and especially so when one tests as frequently as I do. Since I am diabetic my goal is tight control.
Avatar m tn And tomorrow night I start back at school every Thurs night until the end of May. Anyway, the encouragement here has been ineffable, and I plan on being around here for... ever if you'll have me :) Back still hurts and still need a sleep aid, and still feel very fatigued, but I do get energy and a sense of normalcy in "pockets" of time. Enough to make it through. Mostly what I want to say and encourage anyone struggling about is 1.
Avatar n tn Corticosteroids, fluids and electrolytes, including potassium, may be prescribed to correct the adrenal insufficiency. The patient teaching plan will include discussing the signs and symptoms of hyperkalemia, and the strategies for its prevention. Additional causes of hyperkalemia include acidosis, insulin deficiency, and massive tissue damage, such as occur with crushing injuries, burns and hemolysis.
Avatar n tn I would get counseling, but I am currently teaching English in South Korea and such services in English are not only unavailable here, but could cost me my gov't job if anyone found out. I have never told anyone, and would not want my friends and family, or boyfriend to know. Are there any online help sites or forums you'd recommend? Can I do this without professional help? I've already started digging in the ol' brain for possible causes and/or triggers, buried psychological issues, etc.
173975 tn?1216261375 One Way or another it will all work out. I've got Plan A, Plan C, Plan B. I 've done my homework. I've gathered the info and i'm gonna try my hand as a union activist if need be. otherwise i sell the jersey house and go live in a little cottage in the woods off of 23 in the catskills. all for now.
Avatar n tn I just started taking Phentermine and I've noticed several people have said their doc has them on a high protein diet. Could you tell me exactly what the diet plan consists of that your doc gave you?
Avatar n tn It works, I don't eat sugar, salt, flour and little fat ( a lot like a diabetic diet). I eat every 2 to 3 hours so there is not a hunger issue, and you eat food is certain combinations. I eat rice, potatoes, oats, fruits, vegetables and lean meats. Don't miss bread anymore. I was relieved that this plan worked, because I thought pred had messed up my metabolism for life. Shirl you are lucky that you don't need any other meds. I got osteopina and arthritis along with AIH.
3169079 tn?1344514594 i seem to still be going downhill and have been to docs and have had test and all but my grastro doc tell me i am aneamic and some levels are a little off but she says in her opinion my cirohisis can cause all my problems but doesnt believe it is and sends me on my way. so i went to see my diabetic doc and she sees how sick i look and the weight loos and not happy about it and is going to do a few test of her own and thinks i need to see a freind of hers that is a liver speciallist.
Avatar n tn He was and still is down about 25% based on the plan his PCP came up with when all of this started ~ 3 months later. Makes me wonder if the opiates were masking whatever this is for a longer period of time. He is in so much pain with this mystery illness, they don't want to taper anymore right now because his blood pressure is in the danger zone because he is in so much pain from this. Priority #1 is to go back to tapering once on the other side of this.
280891 tn?1261016650 He started his research in the 1950's and has had good results. There is web site supporting his diet. The Paleo Diet has also shown success in treating these neurological diseases. If you want to find out why you have MS Hal Huggins has a book "Solving The MS Mystery Help Hope and Recovery". It is my understanding that the earlier in the disease you address the problem the better chance you have of recovery. Is it all about our genes being messed up?
Avatar m tn How we choose to manage our health is dependent on ACCURATE information we recieve and how great the discreprancy between the optimal choice and personal values. I have a diabetic patient who is routinely admitted for unstable blood sugars and infections. Of course proper diet and exercise would greatly improve his quality of life but his cultural and personal values place a high importance on alcohol and fatty food consumption.
Avatar m tn If I were you, my first plan of attack would be to correct those deficiencies. If your symptoms don't resolve, then definitely revisit thyroid, but at the moment, it's looking pretty good to me on paper.
Avatar n tn It would probably be good for you to do some searching for a research/teaching facility such as this and check out their rhuematology department. You can usually view all of the available docs online with their credentials and what their special interests are. If you come across one who lists fibromyalgia or CFS as their interests you are in great luck. These are the doctors who will really understand you and your symptoms.
Avatar f tn This is not uncommon in my experience, as my late twin brother died at 50 yrs of an inoperable secondary brain tumour, and his primary was never found, although he was treated at one of the major university teaching hospitals in London, England. Through my internet correspondence with her (I live in England) I learned a little about pancreatitis (she had many ERCP procedures). She was treated by a Dr.
1121211 tn?1259344516 From what I understand, it can gradually happen over a period of years, and probably was already present when I was finally diagnosed as 'diabetic', in August of 2006. I have lost over 50 pounds altogether now, in little over a year, and however much I enjoy being 'smaller' again, it's a bit disconcerting to keep losing weight! I finally have insurance, so have made appropriate appointments with several Dr.
