Avatar m tn Now this is something to chew on. jasper March 07, 2008 Printer-friendly version Fast Food Likely to Accelerate Hepatitis C According to new research from Sweden, grabbing a quick burger and fries is just as harmful to the liver as drinking alcohol. Since liver damage carries a graver risk to those living with Hepatitis C, eating low-fat meals is more important to this population than ever. by Nicole Cutler, L.Ac.
Avatar f tn We buy ours from Walgreens, they have 3 different flavors. They are 4g of fast acting carbs each, they worked out much better for us than giving food to treat a low, because typically a low is discovered at meal times, and she still needs to eat. The tablets won't fill her up, and they raise blood glucose by about 15 to 20 points for every tablet taken. As for your meal last night, the chicken itself is all protein, but if you put barbeque sauce on, that has carbs.
97615 tn?1212682189 It is a carb counting for all the major food chains. Tells you what is in each thing on the menu at most major food chains. Also, I believe you can go online and look at diabetic diets. Do not use gestational--for hardly anything shows up. I found it very difficult in the pregnancy for that. Also, try and have your husband understand how hard this is going to be for you. If he does the cooking, unlike mine, have him understand what a good dinner is for someone with this problem.
10947 tn?1281407852 I will let you know when they canonize me - I am laughing. yep - we eat right - veggies at every meal. No fast food. ps - I don't cross the street on "don't walk " either!

Avatar m tn Remove all high calorie and high glycemic index food items from your house. Keep healthy nutritious food, plenty of fiber rich food and plenty of fruits and vegetables. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn I'm 18 weeks as well and eat fast food all the time. I haven't gained a pound this whole pregnancy and baby girl is VERY active at ultrasounds and measuring perfectly. :) Don't worry!
Avatar m tn Very complete app that includes menu items for just about every fast food restaurant PLUS almost all other foods by category. It's free in App Store and I use it all the time now. I'm 14. I use Logbook (MySugr) to track everything. Your daughter might like it, it's fun.
Avatar f tn At 20 weeks with this one I was 135, I started at 130. I will probably end up around 162 again. I admit I eat fast food, once or twice a week, but usually get a $ menu sandwich, or a wrap, not a big meal with large fries and a drink. I have a good breakfast, usually cereal and fruit, a snack, try to have something like grilled cheese and veggies for lunch, and have protein, veggies and a little bit of starch at dinner. I allow myself ice cream for desert during pregnancy as well.
Avatar n tn I am not a physician, but am a type 1 diabetic for 34 years, who takes fast-acting insulin at meals like you do. I am well-controlled and can tell you what works for me, although you will have to experiment during life to find out how the timing works best for you. I do occasionally take my insulin right after a meal when dining with others, for there is no way to know exactly what my carbohydrate count will be when someone else is serving the meal.
Avatar n tn CARBCHECK is a no frills application but does exactly what it says - it has a database of ADA Exchanges, Fast Food, and you can even customize the database if you have Micrsoft Excel. You select what you want and it displays the items and their carbs on the screen in a menu format. It's a work in progress and at the moment can't tally up the items you choose (Trode is working on that)- but for a quick index for meal (that you can add your own items to)it works in a pinch.
Avatar n tn I was told by my doc that my stomach doesn't digest as fast as others. I did a fasting for a GI series and the doc still found food in my stomach 24 hours later. I also have not loss weight and I do not spend all the time in the bathroom I am just the oposite. Do you think maybe my GI doc has misdiagnosed me? I am so sick of being sick aren't You all?
Avatar f tn For those of you who have been through a total thyroidectomy, I know that you fast from midnight on, and then they said it's a liquid diet the next day. I am prediabetic and have reactive hypoglycemia, and it's bad so I need to eat every 2 hrs. or so. (very difficult for me to fast) I don't eat any sugar or artificial sweetners. I have some low glycemic fruit, but fruit juices are too full of sugar. What type of liquids do they give you? I am wondering if I can bring in my own protein drinks?
Avatar n tn Teenage boys need nutritious food that fills them up. Fast food is not the answer. It's expensive to boot. Go to the library and look up some basic recipes with beans. Libraries have tons of cookbooks and they are free! Chile con carne is good if you cut your meat in half and dump in lots of beans. I make mine with 1/2 pound of meat and three cans of beans. You can hardly tell the difference, and the fiber will help to fill him up. Go with oatmeal instead of packaged cereal.
649848 tn?1534637300 They have a lot of brands nutrition facts already in their app, including fast food salads, subs, yogurt...... If your food is not in their app, you can enter it. They also have the barcode scan. You can scan the barcode of what you are eating. The app calculate the calories you burn when you enter the exercise you did. I love this app. The exercise on demand have all kinds. Cardio, dance, kickboxing, Pilate and yoga, butt, core and abs, walking, weight loss, and personal training.
148987 tn?1287809526 Then I get on fast food binges and I'll go buy more food than I could possible eat in one sitting but DAMNIT I do try. My saving grace has been the local 'Boston Market' and the local BBQ joint. It's fast food, but not really. Whatever comes down the pike for you, you'll learn to deal with it. It is unusual that you didn't get sick from your first shot. I got sicker than a dog my first shot. Vomiting, the whole 9 yards. Haven't vomited from another shot since.
2114467 tn?1358213856 I think, if you ate sugar, before Tx, and you weren't diabetic, or experiencing your blood-sugar rising back then, it should be okay. My Doctor never warned me to stay away from sugar, just alcohol. Besides, I like to pamper myself on Tx. Yeah, sure, I try to avoid sugar most of the time, because I read my labs, and noticed this treatment seemed to be making my non-fasting glucose higher than usual, but then again, what do I even know about that test?

Avatar n tn Hi I just read your comments and I think you might be on to something. I to am overweight, apple-shaped and suffered with HS for a few years. I had continuous breakouts with sometimes 3-4 bumps under each arm. I also was pre diabetic and not sure if my sugar levels were high or not. I have not suffered for the last 6 months or so with HS. don't eat fast food or sugary items much. I tend to go now for more protein & veggies and less carbs.
1301089 tn?1290670171 We have calorie counts to (at least I think McDonalds does that, many of our other fast food restaurants do). Then of course it's up to the parents to help their children make good choices. I am always pro health, but this is rather silly. The options should be there, but not forced upon. Then again, there are parents out there who seem to think that a steady diet of Pizza and Happy Meals makes for good nutrition.
649848 tn?1534637300 I might add a sandwich a couple days this week as well. My goal is to eliminate the need to utilize the fast food drive through....... Since I will be back to regular 8 hr days this week, I'll be able to get in the daily walks with my neighbor; that will bring my exercise level back up. I also have a new yoga dvd that I want to try out. Okay - that's MY story and I'm stickin' to it......... LOL Now it's your turn to let us know how you did over the week.
1406332 tn?1315966360 it's a lifestyle. No butter or vegetable oil! No fried food. No fast food. I could have DIED! It's not that bad at all, though. Vegetable oil can be substituted with olive oil, and anything that you like fried (chicken, etc) can be grilled (I love my George Foreman!). You'd also be surprised how many spices exist (Mrs. Dashes grilling seasoning is my favorite) that act as an even tastier substitute than butter. In addition, all bread has to be WHOLE GRAIN.
224988 tn?1208108297 the fist week i walked onmy treadmil for 30mins 4x a week and i ate the right kinds of food. I also have a small amount to lose (25-30) and it seems to be falling off way too slow compared to others who are dropping the weight real quickly. Hopefully some can give us some tips on what to do.
649848 tn?1534637300 In addition, to that, the recipes were all for multiple portions (most served 4-8), and since my husband would not eat that type of food, I'd either have to do the math to cut the recipes down or eat the same meals for days on end. I'd like to say, that for those who have the time to do the cooking, and would like to get their family on a healthy eating plan, this would be an excellent way to go. I might even try some of the recipes, or adapt them to suit myself .............
Avatar f tn We have changed his diet to Hills prescription k/d diet and he is taking fortekor and famotidine daily. Whilst he is eating the food (much to our vets surprise) he will now not let me near his teeth and does not want to go out for a walk. We are having another blood test next week and the vet is maybe looking at prescribing a phosphate binding medicine. I am at a loss as to what to do next. Scooby looks very frail and shakes a lot.
Avatar m tn Nutrition and my body are becoming more prevalent in my life. I only had a fast food burger once in the past 23 days, and I don't even crave the grease like I used to. I'm getting used to soy protein shakes, raisin bread toast, vitamins, water, vitawater, tuna, salmon, salad and so on. It's certainly more expensive to eat healthy than to grab a 99cent menu item, but I genuinely feel the difference.
251222 tn?1270939717 Here is what I have for medical - My gall bladder was removed, I continued to have chronic intermittent pancreatitis The pancreas also stopped doing it's digestive function, so I have to take meds to help digest my food I became a Type 1 diabetic at age 36 with no family history at all of diabetes, I am now on an insulin pump I was referred to a wonderful Neurologist who listened to my troubles right off and set out to try and help me. He has been a Godsend.
Avatar n tn When I was in my 20's I did a sugar test because I was having trouble with sugar in general - the test back then (coke syrup and blood tests) - showed that I had trouble absorbing sugar - basically it hung out in my blood stream a lot longer and I did not absorb it as fast. When I had my 2nd child in my mid 30's I became a gestational diabetic. The doc most recently perscribed Metformin - but I am not a full out diabetic and have never taken insulin - in fact while preg.
Avatar n tn if they get stuck in your throat, and dissolve at all since they are not coated, At least the trial doses are not, watch out.... uggg! you might find your whole mind set about food will be altered, for how long, lets hope not forever, Not pretty, but That is MY real life experience in staying the course!
Avatar m tn was suppose to have another treadmill test but with my bad physical condition the Cardiologist had to stop the test while I was on the treadmill cause my heart rate was too fast and I was dizzy and it was only after 30 seconds so I was only at the stage 1 of the test!!! ). Also since i'm underweight and my intestine hurt and dont work anymore, I have some enteral feeding to eat each day, the product is call Peptamen... not very good but help to keep my weight and stop loosing weight...
