Diabetic foods oatmeal

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic foods oatmeal


Avatar n tn and low fat foods off my list and diabetic staples like eggs are a fond memory. I can't find any information out there to help me balance these evils (diabetes and allergies) against each other. When I was eating the foods I'm allergic too I had debilitating diarhea and a continuous runny nose and chest conjestion. I'm glad to have those gone. I guess the question is which will kill me first: diabetes or food allergies. Any resources out there for diabetes with food allergies?

1666434 tn?1325265950 I thought it might be helpful if we made a thread that shared some of your favorite diabetic safe recipes. This can just be something you make yourself all the time or a recipe you converted to be safe.
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 n tn I felt the symptoms again of low blood sugar and ate oatmeal (maple brown sugar) and drank juice and shot up to 129. Then, 100 to 97 and down to 83. My Grandpa had diabetes and im worried I may. Help..
Avatar f tn Whole wheat bread is wheat that is not milled as much so it contains the wheat fibers (that is why it is darker in color) as opposed to white bread. Soft wheat does not have much fiber as whole wheat bread. Multi-grain and whole grain breads have added grains/seeds, such as oatmeal, and sesame seeds. The label will list the additional 'grains'.

Avatar f tn My blood sugar was a little high, but not diabetic (around 130). My doc said I was borderline diabetic and to eat small meals low in carbs high in protein. I did this and also cut out all refined sugars and carbs. I can't even eat high sugar fruits, I mainly just have berries. When cutting out sugar I wasn't thirsty all the time, and I was less dizzy. But starting in March I began to have other symptoms. Now I have numbness/tingling in my hands and feet.
1339332 tn?1329857966 This is so very, very unfair. I ate a bowl of oatmeal, a bowl of beef stew, 1 oz. of chicken, a slice of Italian bread with butter and a 1x1.5" piece of apple pie yesterday...and I gain 0.6 lbs.?!? And while I haven't been eating good quality food over the past couple of weeks, I've still been eating 1000-1450 calories/day, mostly at the lower end, and I gain 4.6 lbs---now 5.2 lbs. with yesterday's gain. Why am I even trying? I just have to accept that I'm fat, frumpy and always will be.
Avatar f tn My son's bloodwork came back with high triglycerides, very high bad cholesterol and very high insulin. He is apparently pre-diabetic, definitely insulin-resistant. I visited pre-diabetes.com and discovered that what I always though was psoriasis on his elbows and palm is probably acanthosis nigricans. His dad has Type II diabetes so my son is predisposed to it. We've immediately changed his diet and increased his exercise regimen.
748902 tn?1286038358 The best way to provide the diet with complex carbohydrates is to consume foods in their most natural state such as oatmeal, bran and brown rice. Bran Wheatgerm Barley Maize Buckwheat Cornmeal Oatmeal The food list below shows good sources of complex carbohydrates.
231441 tn?1333896366 Now I know someone my weight and build should be eating about 2400 calories a day. So why should I be eating less during pregnancy? (I do understand about spreading foods throughout the day, 6 small meals, etc and this is very important). I asked this girl 3 times about how to adjust food intake for exercise: explaining that I exercise at least 1 and up to 3 hours a day.
Avatar n tn I was reading that its a herb/spice used in alot of indian foods and like ginger it has a strong anti inflammatory response. One article suggested drinking tsp of it with tsp of ginger and honey in hot water would help boost your immune system. I am not saying its a cure or anything but am curious as I dont know much about this spice and I'm just now running across info on it.
Avatar m tn Thank you for reading this! When I eat fatty foods, like meats, butter, nuts, and oils, these symptoms appear: -Tiredness -Mental confusion -Impaired coordination -Dysphoria -Urgency to urinate -Cloudy urine When I eat things like oatmeal and beans (fat free), these symptoms do not appear. Today I tried putting vinegar into my urine and it cleared it up. This health problem started around 8 months ago.
Avatar f tn And at birth, they do a heel prick test on bub straight away to check the sugar levels, and if they are too high or too low, bub will be put on an IV drip to regulate the glucose level. But managing a diabetic diet is not that hard really, and you'll be fine. Just gotta say goodbye to mcdonald's, choccies, lollies and junk food!
Avatar n tn A major problem everyone deals with when first diagnosed lies with not understanding what foods to eat and what foods to avoid. I think everyone first starting out, including myself, misunderstood how important foods we consume affect our glucose levels. And no, medication will not allow you to eat any food one wants. Medication helps you to lower glucose levels. The key word is 'help'. The best approach to diabetes is, of course, prevention.
Avatar m tn Your doctor may have a sample diet menu or be able to recommend a nutritionist to help you understand the proper diet. There are also may diabetic cook books on the market that can help you to understand how to make common foods that are not going to spike your blood glucose. Additionally you should ask your doctor about an exercise program.
519035 tn?1348279373 I think mainly the problem is due to the metabolism. When you have a thyroid problem, we just dont seem to break down the foods as fast. My bowels havent been the same since I had RAI and TT last year although I must say they are getting their act together since being stable on Thyroxin.
Avatar m tn He says it could be pre-diabetes and has ordered an a1c that hasn't come back yet. My dad has type 2 diabetes. I am a 35 year old male and my dad was diabetic by age 33 or so. I have been using his monitor to check my sugar levels since I heard this. I used to check it from time to time and it was always within the normal range. I have checked my fasting blood sugar the last 3 mornings and they were 90, 88, 90 which I know is in the normal range.
636891 tn?1365206136 They're out there, you just have to find them. Talk with your grocer, let him/her know your interest in obtaining diabetic foods. When people show interest they will order them, the other way around if you remain silent.
Avatar n tn With acid reflux it's all about diet, and keeping the head of her bed elevated to prevent the acid from flowing back into her esophagus. Spicy foods tend to make it worse, you should pull foods from her diet one by one to see if she improves until you find the culprit. Juices can also make this worse. If she isn't on any medication for the reflux ask her doctor about it, there are many medications to help with this. She's too young to have to be dealing with this, and I hope this helps.
Avatar n tn (It really is a shame that the official national Diabetes Associations throughout the world don't offer dynamic guidance beyond mere blanket recommendations suited to the general population, which supposedly address the concerns of both the diabetic-in-denial and the diabetic that takes things seriously) Thankyou.
Avatar f tn I have been trying to get my blood sugar down. I changed my diet to oatmeal and 5 strawberries for breakfast, salad for lunch, dry bran cereal for snack, Healthy Choice Meal for dinner, and slice of bread n peanut butter for bedtime snack to take with my janumet. Because Janumet makes me feel nausea. My blood sugars are running 308 this week and last night it drop to 219 and gave me a headache. My doctors can't really do much about my meds because my insurance won't pay for my diabetic meds.
Avatar f tn I have had hives all over my body in as many as 15 different locations at the same time. I've tried singular, zyrtec, Claritin, benadryl, oatmeal baths and nothing helps in the least. In the last day I've also experienced headache and nausea. No new foods, drinks or environmental changes. Please note I also have multiple diseases such as Lupus, Posteral orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, gastroparisis, etc.
Avatar n tn Limiting processed foods and eating foods closest to their form in nature tends to provide us with max vitamins, minerals and health benefits. Oatmeal is a great component in a healthy diet. And in the spirit of "less processed," we're advised to choose the Old-Fashioned oatmeal that takes some time to cook on the stove, rather than the kind that's been cooked a bit already and we just zap for a few seconds in the microwave. Take good care!
Avatar n tn Hi guys, hope this message greets all of you in the best of diabetic health ! :) So, I just wanna ask some people who can relate to me a little...do you ever cheat on your blood sugar sometimes...like once in a month and have a chocolate bar...or...a sweet chocolate drink ? I am 20 and type 2.and honestly, I have to be true to myself ! And the truth is...once a month or so...I crave a little chocolate. Last night I indulged in a chocolate bar and a chocolate drink too.
Avatar f tn Last night I pulled all my paperwork on my physicals for the past 18 or so years and most of the time my fasting blood sugar was in the low 90s except once about 12 years ago it was 103 and this past year 105 so I am hoping that it will be back in the low 90s again. But I do know with my Dad being a diabetic I am at risk. Healthy eating for me is 5 small meals a day instead of 3 larger ones. Kinda like this.
Avatar m tn My husband has been diabetic more than 20 years....about 5 years ago he began having pain in is stomach after a battery of tests he was told to have a "slow" stomach but they didn't even have him come back and no treatment. The pain didn't go away and steadily has increased...He was seen @ our ER about 3 weeks ago CT ws done came back ok as far as pancreas .
Avatar f tn I drink lots of fluids. Calcium, sodium and potassium levels ok. Have increased potassium foods intake and started on calcium supplements on my own. I have them during the day when I sit in certain chairs, but not as severe as the ones I get at night. Have them while in swimming and getting out of the pool and while driving. I get them in my hands when I set my hair.
