Avatar f tn If you look up paleo and primal recipes. They are great for ppl w diabetes. My bf has it and its been a lifesaver. Not to mention they are delicious and so much healthier. I am plus size woman and pg and its helped me lose inches and feel way better.
Avatar f tn Just search the Internet for diabetic recipes as well they give you some really yummy ideas. My new favorite meal to cook myself is steak and chicken fajitas. Everything but the tortilla is on the free food list.
938718 tn?1323787114 Sigh. I tested positive for gestational diabetes. I thought I was eating healthy, but I guess it's not enough. I'm just waiting now for an appointment at the diabetic clinic. Has anyone else experienced this?
Avatar f tn I've always been a diabetic but the most helpful thing for me has been going to this program for preggos with diabetes, sweet success. They set me up with a counselor to answer all my questions and pretty much educate me on what can happen to me and my baby girl and a dietician to give me tons of food ideas. Ask ur doctor if there is something similar you can be referred to. I'm in southern California.

Avatar f tn So it's not just gestational diabetes? Sorry, haven't been through the same thing, just curious. Try not to stress too much! Tons of people go through pregnancy with diabetes.

Avatar f tn I also like to look up diabetic friendly recipes on pintrest along with gestational diabetes meal ideas. My doc also told me I could have one sweet treat a week if I wanted so I dont feel so deprived. It can be hard I'm not going to lie. I ate a peice of chocolate today cause I was craving it for days. But you can do it and your not the only one. Good luck.
Avatar f tn Look into a paleo or clean diet. Those are perfect for women with gestational diabetes. There are some amazing and easy recipes out there. You'll feel like you have a whole new body after a couple weeks.
Avatar f tn Try doing the diabetes/gestational diabetes diet...the basics... limit carbs intake to 30g per meal, cut as much sugars as possible (I drank fruit juices, soda, Starbucks coffee loaded with sugar, ate ice cream and candy-- and eliminated 95%), and they have a lot of awesome recipes on pinterest... I was told I have GD and was forced to change my eating habits to diabetic eating habits and have lost weight... I haven't gained anything this pregnancy and I'm 36 weeks pregnant...
335728 tn?1331418012 Then 4 years ago I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. For lo those 40 years, I never followed the right diet. For the past year I have followed a modified Atkins diet, have lost 40+lbs, and now do not have to take the oral diabetes medication. I'm one of those who can't add much fruit at all, without spiking my blood sugar. Oh well, good thing I love steak, lobster, pork, and nuts and cheese. Rena and Sunny, after a week or so, you won't feel the desire for sugar any more.
Avatar n tn o) you mentioned recipes...i used to make these all the time, and they're very good for you and low in fat: portabella mushroom "pizzas" drizzle olive oil, balsamic vinegar (if you like it), salt and pepper onto large portabella mushroom caps. slice up some bell peppers (red, yellow, green, orange, whatever you like) and place them on the caps. cover with a little mozzarella cheese (or a blend of cheeses) and bake until the cheese has melted and gotten brown and bubbly. enjoy!
Avatar n tn I also take the medication for type 2 diabetes. I also take glyburide for my diabetes. I would say that it is a 50/50 chance whether you would lose weight in the long run as the product wasn't designed as a weight loss product. (but I'm not a doctor so your dr. might be able to tell you what to expect).
Avatar f tn It is the same idea with the truth that hCG is involved with 'gestational diabetes' and 'causes kidney failure, hypothyroid and cancer' statements. These are way out of context. The hCG weight loss protocol is very safe. There has never been an issue noted concerning it causing kidney failure or any other system failure ever. The does used in the weight loss is far less than the much larger doses used for other issues. It is not FDA approved for weight loss. But it is safe.

Avatar n tn I have not read thru every one of these comments, but was wondering since the Lexapro puts weight on, has anyone suddenly become diabetic as well? My friend had been on Lexapro for almost a year, I believe, and she also had put on significant amount of weight as well as becoming borderline diabetic. Her doctor also told her it doesn't cause weight gain. Her doctor now put her on Zoloft, an anti-depressant in the same class as Lexapro.
