Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic exchange nuts


Avatar f tn ) but go for a walk or exercise after. The main thing is not eat too much. Protein helps alot so you stay fuller longer. And protein doesn't break down into sugars later.
Avatar n tn If you eat junk food, such as chips, cookies, candy, etc, you should exchange them for veggies, fruit cheese, yogurt, low fat dairy, nuts, seeds, etc. Opt for plenty of protein and complex carbs and limit simple carbs, such as those found in sugary foods, products made from white flour, white rice, regular pasta etc. Opt for whole grain breads and pastas, sweet potatoes, etc. Exchange sodas and fruit juices for water or other unsweetened beverages. Try Stevia instead of sugar.
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 f tn While i was sufferibg with the RLS i didnt find much otc worked until my husband bought me some really ugly, but very tight diabetic stockings. They DID provide aome relief, especially at night. They might not be pretty, but who cares, right???? Keep moving forward....forward progress only!!!!
Avatar n tn By the looks of it, my post applies to a few other people here as well, really, it's nuts to drink having this disease. What's the use in exercising and eating well if your liver has to deal with alcohol...on top of the ravages of this disease? The liver isn't a Super Hero. I might get some flack for saying this, but it's just common sense.
Avatar n tn I *think* I had read that site redness was common. I am only using thigh area. My husband is diabetic and he does my injection for me. Sometimes it hurts during & after the injection. I do use a loofa sponge & mild vegetarian bar soap (Dr. Bronners) to massage the previous weeks site. I do not know if this practice would disturd the most recent shot site so I do not rub that leg after injection. But this method of rubbing has greatly dimished my red circles faster than before.
Avatar m tn I'm still constantly switching glasses (I can't read with the ReStors's at all without reading glasses (same strength I had before surgery) so it's still back and forth switching glasses) and there is a frequent fluttering which drives me nuts as my eyes and brain try to catch up with each other. I still haven't figured out HOW these are supposed to work, but they sure don't work for me.
Avatar n tn Anyone develop interferon-induced neuropathy in your feet or hands? Any experience with Nortriptyline? After living with this condition for over a year, during & post-tx, I'm beginning to think about actually swallowing this medication my internist has prescribed for it. The stuff has a long list of "side" effects, naturally, and is a tricyclic antidepressant that also somehow alleviates nerve pain.
Avatar n tn 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. Potassium may also be obtained from the following herbs: red clover, sage, catnip, hops, horsetail, nettle, plantain and skullcap. Caffeine and tobacco reduce the absorption of potassium. People at risk for insufficient potassium intake include alcoholics, drug addicts and crash dieters.
Avatar m tn LOL) even after two tests are negative....can you see how they might think you're nuts? I really doubt that you have Hepatitis C. To get infected, you would have both had to bleed and exchange blood. Six months is long enough for an antibody test to turn positive, especially since you used STEROIDS, which suppress the immune system and can cause the Hepatitis C virus to multiply faster.
Avatar m tn Bx, stage 4 and grade 2 to 3 Cirrhotic with mild to severe activity. Also type 2 diabetic. Overall tx has not been to bad, alot has had it worse.
Avatar n tn I was so fascinated by the number of people who suffer with gastroparesis. I have diabetic gastroparesis. I have been diabetic for 34 years and developed this disorder 6 years ago. I had surgery on my hands and developed a complication called neuropathy. There are a couple of kinds. One is where you can't feel anything, like in your feet(that is why there are so many foot and leg amputations.) Some diabetics can't feel if they have a soar.
233488 tn?1310696703 clear lens cataract surgery” or “refractive lens exchange”. This is done to reduce the thickness of their glasses or make them much more glasses independent. We are not discussing whether that is appropriate surgery. The IOL and refractive problems are the same as those having cataract surgery. 5. A refractive error that makes some people happy post cataract surgery and often enables them to function without glasses for many things is 0.00 in the dominant eye for distance and -1.25 or -1.
Avatar n tn Also, are you on the pill, by any chance? Or diabetic? Either of those can cause frequent yeast infections. But most of all, did your doctor actually diagnose you in person with a yeast infection, or just call something in for you over the phone? If the latter, I'd make an appt to be seen. You may either have a different strain of yeast, or another type of infection.
Avatar n tn This is a very informaive exchange of comments and I wouldlike to aadd my own, After triple CABG and AVR (ST.Jude) in June 2000 I remained completely awareof every single heart beat. At first they were hard fast beats which the cardios said to ignore and that they would go away. They never did. About 6 months ago I started with missbeats and after an ER visit the diagnosis was - No arrhythmia but SINUS ARRHYTHMIA! Which according to Fred is nothing to wprry about.
343765 tn?1202526132 About the book, if you order it on a South African site it will probably cost much less because of the exchange rate - dollars and poundes buy loads of goodies here in SA. I know the book is available on Amazon - both US & UK. SA sites you can try are loot.co.za or take2.co.za. The book is called Spud and is written by John van der Ruit. Best of all there is a sequel, so if you enjoy it, you can get the next one too - it's as funny as the first one.
Avatar n tn I am a candle freak. i love the lil' glade fans! I'm not a neat freak, but it has to be clean. It drives me nuts if it's not.
Avatar n tn Please contact me as often as you wish. Somehow a friend of mine figured out how we can exchange e-mails to stay in touch easier. Please know I feel for you and know how difficult this is. Are you working? What is your day like. When this first hit I did absolutely nothing for 3 months. I would like to know how this first appeared. It is interesting to exchange symptoms and now it started.
Avatar n tn I am also detoxing from meth, was on 65mg for 15 years. Down to 5 millagrams.
Avatar n tn My first piece of advice to you would be to request the results of your Western Blot. Which bands (if any) were positive? The bands reported on a WB from "big box" labs such as Quest and LabCorp frequently do NOT include a few lyme specific bands (ostensibly because the ill-fated Lymerix vaccine, which a patient could have received, could lead to a false positive on those bands).
Avatar f tn His buddy just died (November) and I got a 6 mo old kitten who is fitting in fine, but the Bengal (Snapper) is licking all the hair off hind legs and belly. He has always licked more than most cats, but this is nuts! Changing the litter is a good idea, though he does most of his business outside. I think he is neurotic. I must caution against steroids, as being treated with them caused my other cat to become diabetic. That is not a good thing. Any other ideas are welcome.
Avatar n tn I have been to the Doctor twice without any solution, the last time he suggested Scabbies but the lotion hasn't helped. It is driving me nuts, it seemed to start after I gave my dog a bath, I wonder if it is a parasite?
Avatar m tn I start a conversation with her,usually about our day so far, pausing to wait for her replies. This exchange can last for 10 minutes or so and ends with a combined howling as to the 'pack'. The neighbours have got used to it. She settles thereafter content. It's just particularly annoying when she starts up in the middle of a good film however the TV is so bad these days it usually is a wonderment of a diversion all instigated by her. It occurs every day. So you folks ...join in....
Avatar n tn I have noticed them less often in the last year. My doctor thinks I'm nuts... I know what I smell. I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar n tn The first thing that comes to mind and is a concern is whether you are diabetic or have you had your sugar checked? If you have sugar you can sometimes get an odor to your urine and if you have sugar/dibetes it can be a big factor as to why you get this in the first place so if your not sure get it checked.
