Diabetic exchange diet meal plan

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic exchange diet meal plan


Avatar f tn The best way to start seems to be with metformin, diet and exercise. I find that a half mile to mile walk after a meal helps a lot. If your hubby is overweight, the pounds have to go. If he's not, then a change of diet and possibly meds will be necessary. I am personally against using sulfonureas because they wring out your pancreas and ultimately leave you in worse shape than before.
698538 tn?1228126579 Hi! Well, I never did start my period but a blood test revealed that I am definately not pregnant, and I am also NOT going through menopause. YAY...so there is still some time...maybe! =) I am 45 as of July of 2008...I am 5 foot 3 inches, and weigh 220 pounds. I run a very busy daycare out of my home, so I don't get out much. By the time the last one leaves I am wiped out!

Avatar m tn Lifestyle changes have to be made for diet and exercise as well as meds and therapy. You didnt mention if you were in therapy but this is a very important part of kicking bi polar. Diet 6small meals a day with lots of fruit ,veggies, grain and lean meats 3oz per meal of meat. exercise, even walking briskly for at least 30 minutes a day will help you with mood stablization. I also like to lift weights. NO caffiene and no sugar as these aggravate bi polar. therapy and meds.

Avatar n tn Dietary sources of potassium Under most circumstances, eating a healthy diet will obtain the necessary potassium. Food sources include vegetables, dairy foods, fish, fruit, legumes, and grains. Rich sources of potassium are found in apricots, cantaloupe, avocados, bananas, brewer's yeast, raisins, dates, prunes, yams, mushrooms, garlic, nuts, winter squash and black-strap molasses.
Avatar f tn I did however try a diet a few months ago called the Sacred Heart Medical Diet. It is a week long diet. Anyone can do a diet for only a week if you want it bad enough. It says you will lose 10 lbs. I actually lost 8 and so did my sister and mom. It wasnt hard because you eat a ton of food but it doesnt work if you cheat. The second time I did it I lost 6 lbs but I didnt make it through the week. Anyway it was the best diet I have tried so google it for the directions if you are interested.
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.
Avatar n tn The second page has links to other sites and one has a good diet plan,it gives you an idea of quantity and types of food you (can add or replace things) I hope you get some relief soon, hang in there.If you have any questions ect.
9311644 tn?1403185460 Well done for stopping. You also could go back to your doc and ask for a taper plan off subs. Please note, this is only my experience of subs and yours may completely differ.
Avatar n tn Mine, I attribute to 1)mitral valve leak in the +1-2 range and slight prolapse as the 'stage set' and then 2)'the player' my errant diet, with a confirmation by my cardiologist that MSG and very unusually high salt intake (made my own cured Salmon) in the days before onset acted as the precip event. Caffiene on top of it was likely an additional contributing factor.
Avatar n tn Lately, I've been trying unfiltered apple cider vinegar with 8oz purified water before each meal. One month now and no more afib! When I bend down, it feels like it will happen, but doesn't if I sit and breath reguarly. I am convinced my afibbing is a digestive problem. I also take digestive enzymes and have just begun probiotics. I think the key may be keeping stomach alkaline hence ac vinegar.
1130586 tn?1316269892 My mother, who is borderline diabetic, took the treatment when I did (I think she did it just to help support me), and her next dr. visit the doctor was amazed at her lab reports, saying there was a great deal of improvement, and that she wouldn't be classified diabetic by those results. Anyway, I don't regret doing it. I don't think it hurt any. It may have helped a little, but now, in retrospect, I don't think it could really do much in getting rid of this disease.
Avatar n tn Plus, I don't think people should be given a pill just for weight loss. It is a good benefit, but exercise and diet are a better way. It's fair to us because we need the medication to aid other needs.
Avatar m tn As far as food, the vet told me to keep him on his normal diet cause if he overeats he will then become overweight. He was really hungry for about a month and a half but I think he is pretty much used to the medicine now. I wish you and your doggie all the best.
Avatar n tn I Do not correlate the initiation of these tremors with any particular event/diet/state of mind? I have not been able to determine what precipitates them. I have changed my diet, my exercise routine to no avail. I do have a bit of anxiety, but I truly believe it is as a result of the lack of sleep.
Avatar n tn BTW, back when I thought it was yeast, I tried a no-sugar diet, ate at least 2 cloves of garlic a day, took grapeseed extract, and ate coconut oil. Didn't do a thing.
Avatar n tn I actually sell my diet plan for only $5. If you are interested contact me at ***@**** Good luck to all of you!
Avatar n tn He has no pain, thus far, I believe because he is diabetic. He has had two massive heart attacks and never felt anything. Can we finally see a positive side to diabetes?? LOL Hospice is very helpful, I have worked with them with other family members. Do not hesitate to use them, if available. I am a newly graduated RN, but have seen enough to know that you should not hesitate to give pain medications to terminal cancer patients.... sometimes it is unbearable.
Avatar n tn I have tried cutting out alcohol, artificial sweetners, all allergy medication, diet soda, etc....and I can't get a direct link to anything that I'm injesting. I plan on purchasing a air purifier to see if that helps....have you tried that?
Avatar n tn and see if either you had visited an hospital for some surgery or was in REAL close contact with someone who had been in a hospital. (By Close contact I mean, maybe sexual relationship or exchange of body fluids).
429155 tn?1205676864 00 Collect curry, feel real bad, pint of Guiness was awful, felt really bad on way home, sick when stopped car/have meal/bed/cannot sleep up about 10 times, pains in legs arms and now shoulder.
Avatar n tn She has never complained about it but I can't help but feel that it's driving her crazy. Anyway, I plan on taking her to the pediatrician to see if they can shed any light on this subject. Thanks to all who have written.
Avatar n tn The reaction can tell them all kinds of different things. They gave me a diet plan for migraines which seems to help and I don't need medication. They told me try it for 4-6 weeks and if it doesn't work they will prescribe me migraine medicine. I hope this helps. If you want a copy of my diet plan to try or any more information, I would be more than happy to give it to you.
Avatar f tn Oh, yes. I have a "successful" implant also. Only I feel horrible! I just sent a note to brokenjaw about another website I found--www.orthopedicanalysis.com. There are many references to the validity of the lymphocyte transformation testing for metal sensitivity. If I would have known about it perhaps I would not have had to send my blood to Switzerland.
Avatar n tn I haven't taken any medications at all; I just added vitamins to my diet. The first 2 weeks were the worst. This weekend my legs hurt again, but it went away. My eyes were bothering me for several days (odd sensation like they were extra dry or straining) but that too passed. During this process I have had a nerve test, reflex tests, blood work and an MRI done. The MRI was to rule out the coincidence that maybe MS was a factor. All test results were normal.
534800 tn?1217170959 I have tested a few things and salt/sodium reduction can and does seem to lessen the swelling and speed up the recovery time - any degree of water retention, for someone affected by a condition that's in turn affected by heat and humidity, is going to fair better with a low salt, low sodium diet. Not sure how sleep affects the condition other than you awake for less time to be bothered by the sight of the splotches!
