Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic foods prepackaged

diabetes

Avatar n tn Though I also have problems that seem to be from blood sugar levels being too high after eating possibly from high carb meals (pasta, potatoes) and definitely after eating any sugary items. As I am not a diabetic that I am aware of so I was looking into the hypo/hyper glycemias but all the information I have found would suggest that you either have high BS or low BS, but not really both. I seem to have problems with both?
Avatar m tn To keep your sodium levels down, avoid high sodium foods, prepared/prepackaged foods, cold cuts, cured meats, and take away the ‘salt shaker’. Adding extra herbs and garlic/spices (without salt) to your food will add more flavor and you will not miss the salt. Hope this helped you.
Avatar n tn I am not a physician, but am a long-time type 1 diabetic, diagnosed 34 years ago. I can only answer from my own experience, both as a chld and now as an adult, but several common-sense things come to mind. First, I would give her doctor a call before she leaves in case he has any suggestions for you. It appears that her glucose control is within acceptable ranges from her last ha1c, so the important thing will be to keep doing whatever you are doing now while she is traveling.
1303999 tn?1279585526 (fruit salad to snack on) if you can make one up it will last 2 days in the fridge. Avoid all bottled juices as they contain the highest amount of sugar and avoid all prepackaged foods. Fresh is best with diabetes. Steamed vegetables, steamed fish, etc is great for diabetics. It is ok to have a 'binge' every now and then but follow it with a glass of water as that also lowers the levels. Drink as much water as you can. If you feel the need for chocolate....
Avatar n tn I think the only tricky thing is to manage the munchies. Something that might help is to get him prepackaged delicious foods (bags of chips or cookies, or prewrapped ice cream cones, etc, and throw in some low carb options too like nuts, lunch meat, veggies,etc) for when he gets the munchies, so that he will know how much to bolus (this might sound a bit odd, but I find that the difficult part of bolusing for the munchies, is remembering how much food I actually ate).
Avatar f tn And the gluten free diet got rid of the itching. The ears are a hotspot for yeast. These foods feed the yeast!!! Milk, gluten and sugar. Now some people might be sensitive to other foods. But these are two of the most likely food groups. I would start with the milk free diet first. See what improves. Then try the gluten free diet - this one probably has more to do with your hearing loss than milk - it's very damaging to the nerves in your ears.
Avatar n tn I am not quite sure of the cause, but I avoid starchy foods, because they make the problem worse. I have had terrible luck with doctors, but here is my advice: 1. Go to a gastro-enterologist. I know that this is an embarassing problem, but a specialist may be able to help you. Be careful, if you have an HMO and one of those primary- care physicans, you may have some trouble getting a referral. If you have problems, INSIST. Take a parent along if you have to. 2.
Avatar n tn I'm not talking just simply no milk, cheese, butter, etc...you have to pay attention to labels of any prepackaged foods or foods you didn't prepare. You would be surprised at how many things dairy are in (like progresso italian bread crumbs??). All packaged store foods have a label that list allergens and will say if something contains dairy, or in some cases you have to read all the ingredients carefully because it might be listed in the ingredients as whey, or casein, etc.
Avatar f tn I believe that the amino acid lysine helps increase iron levels (if your ferritin is low of course). Also, many prepackaged foods (if not all of them) are polluted with chemicals that may make the iron unavailable. Try to eat "clean" -- using real food that you cook yourself. ithyroid.com was recommended as a good website -- I would also suggest www.acu-cell.com. It's an excellent resource for vitamin and mineral interactions.
Avatar f tn The number one excuse for not eating the required five servings of fruits and vegetables each day is they are too expensive. However, as compared to the amount of money spent on prepackaged, processed, and fast foods, most fruits and vegetables (with the exception of those that are not in season) are not all that expensive. Because frozen fruits and vegetables retain the majority of their nutritional value, they can be an excellent alternative when certain foods are out of season.
Avatar n tn You watch that you eat well, nutritiously (no canned, super preserved with chemicals, super salty or sweet foods). Try to cook your foods daily ( no prepackaged stuff like mac and cheese -isn't cheese supposed to be in the fridge??? if it's not like cheezits then there's some chemical in it). Make sure you sleep before 11 or 12. The organs needs its time to repair at night. Some people have so much work to do they stay up late much too often for their own good.
Avatar n tn for two years, and from the beginning, he hasn't lost ANY weight! And his doctor had him taking 1000mg AM, and PM. He is diabetic. I think you changing what you're eating, the amount you eat, and walking more often is the reasons why you loose weight! And also, it is VERY, VERY unhealthy to loose 19LBS in 1 week! If that's what is happening you should eat more Cal's! I've never meet a doctor who would be OK with ANYONE losing that much so fast!
Avatar m tn Hello, Itchy skin can be a manifestation of eczema,psoriasis, internal diseases like liver and kidney disorders,diabetes, iron deficiency anemia, irritation and allergic reactions to chemicals,wool,soaps,cosmetics and certain foods. But these pins and needles sensations are different.
Avatar f tn I was on a trial and it seems much info was left out Back then I was diabetic and was on Metformin but doc said he didn't think I needed it since my weekly draws were so good. To be fair they were just starting to talk about the effects of IR and Diabetes on success of tx, I wonder if that would have helped me.
Avatar n tn Exercises lots, a lot of muscle for a woman, doesn't smoke, drink, drink caffeine except for green tea, doesn't eat red meat, eats at least a pound of fresh veggies a day and drinks tons of water. I don't eat prepackaged foods to avoid all the chemicals. I'm essentially a health nut. The only problem I have I guess is insomnia and I take methionine occasionally. Diabetes runs in my dad's family and I think I may have a tiny bit of a higher blood pressure due to my neurotic behavior.
288415 tn?1231634102 I am having a hard time stopping eating and still I eat the problem foods (like chocolate, fatty foods, etc), but I have some food issues to deal with. Please let me know if trying this helps you.
251922 tn?1193786078 ) and my question for now is do I need to eat mostly organic this weekend while I load or is any type foods okay?? I, too, have changed out all the cookies, chips, etc to organic. My boys automatically "hate" them simply because of the word "organic" that's listed. They still eat it though...lol. I am so thankful that I found this forum!! You all are such a help and inspiration.
Avatar n tn Hi For several months I have been getting this weird sensation that my skin is crawling. This happens just behind my right shoulder blade in exactly the same place every time. It generally happens for no reason that I can fathom. It is a sort of itching sensation and then a sensation that there is something crawling under my skin. When I rub it with my fingers it disappears for a while but inevitably it returns within a few minutes. There is no pain involved.
Avatar n tn Also try eating lots of salad, fruit and raw veg as these are all cooling foods. Im training to be a reflexologist at the mo and my tutor (who is an amazing woman) has a theory that things which irritate/stress you emotionally can irritate/stress you physically. Maybe look at what irritates irritates you in your life and try to relax about it. Plenty of deep breathing etc. Hope you all find some relief soon.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if they always do the HCG trigger shot before an IUI. I am taking clomid and metformin (not diabetic though). Its so surreal knowing that there is the possibility that sometime this week, we could be making a baby! lol Good luck to you all and baby dust to everyone!!!!!
