Diabetic snacks foods

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic snacks foods


Avatar n tn Hi Cousin T! How nice of you to be concerned about serving something that will meet your cousin's dietary needs. The important thing to remember is that all of us need to refrain from processed foods & too much sugar. A well balanced, healthy meal is all that is really called for (whether it's lunch or dinner that you're serving).
Avatar n tn Hi, Good snacks are low carb snacks. Cheese, eggs, cold meats, vegetable sticks with cream based dips, nuts (best are macadamias and other high fat nuts - peanuts and cashews are best limited as they are high carb). You may get used to not having such sweetened foods over time. You may get more ideas by looking at low carb / keto / paleo recipes.
1975145 tn?1419913236 Can any one list some foods that will help keep diabetes away ? I have been told I am pre diabetic and my numbers seems to keep climbing. I do not think the food I eat now is that bad and I don't eat much at all really and usually only 2 times a day. I will eat anything but fish. Please if you would be so kind as to list some foods to and not to eat would be most appreciated.
Avatar f tn Hello All, I went to the endocrinologist yesterday amd she read my bloodwork results and said I'm considered diabetic. She didn't say which type (which i guess is safe to assume is 2 since she put me on metformin). For the first week, I only take it once a day (dinner time) then after once at breakfast and once at dinner. Like many, I still don't believe it, so i've requested re-testing.
Avatar n tn I am not the parent of a type 1 diabetic, but am a type 1 diabetic myself. I was a child when diagnosed, and know the worry you are feeling, for I saw it in my own mother. I AM a mother, though, and know that getting a 4-year-old to eat an exact amount of food borders on impossible. I personally find that simple foods are the easiest to deal with when trying to balance food with insulin.
Avatar f tn I have gestational diabetes an its not all that bad I can still eat most things I use to but have to cut back a lot an can't have any fried foods or the obvious sugar foods which is what I crave this pregnancy..its tough in the beginning to get use to the diet but you will get the hang of it just watch the amount of carbs you are in taking!!!
Avatar n tn One thing that was most helpful to us, especially at the beginning, was getting a Carb Counting book, one for fresh foods, packaged foods, etc. that you would purchase in the grocery store and then another one used for dining out. There's one that covers most of the major fast food chains as well as some of the larger eat-in restaurants. These can be most helpful as you learn to 'guesstimate', which I promise you will learn to do!

Avatar n tn Hi, My Mom (46yrs) was diagnosed a Brittle Diabetic. She has been taking Lantus at night and she dreads taking it because it causes her to scream from the burning in her arm. She uses the smallest needles available for the pen. Her diet is very limited and on a daily basis she usually eats about 2 bowls of cucumbers with vinegar and a bit of olive oil and some type of protein, such as chicken or salmon. Her sugar is never consistant.
Avatar n tn Hi I am new here and i hope i am not breaking any rules but my question ia about what effects smoking pot (marijuana) will have on my son (20yrs old) who is diabetic. I am not 100% sure that he is doing this but am sure he has tried it at least once and i want to be able to give him all the correct information about the dangers he is putting himself in before i speak with him about this.
Avatar n tn She also has diabetes and high blood pressure. What should her breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks look like to keep all of these conditions under control?
410475 tn?1262945967 I have had type II for a year now and just started to accept it. Make sure you start your day with protien. Walk after meals and no sugary snacks at night and you should be ok. The occasional piece of cake is ok, just watch the white flour and starches as much as you do the sugars.
Avatar f tn I feel like I am doing my best, but I am flying blind. Because of my lack of knowledge about diabetic foods, I would do best with having a menu to refer to. A meal plan written and planned out ahead of time and a snack list of sorts. The scary thing about all this is that I dont know if the foods I was taught to be "healthy" all my life, are what my daughter needs. I am willing to do what it takes to change the household to benefit her, but I dont know what to change!
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?
8175778 tn?1398949037 What are some good but still healthy meals or snacks to eat? Im 34 weeks &3days ...but eating is such a hassle now!
Avatar n tn She is an active child and when she eats 3 meals and 2 snacks a day and when she eats her snacks are yougurt or apples. How many calories should she be eating a day and what are good foods for her to be eating.
Avatar n tn It seems as though many of you JDRF volunteers who are also diabetic have had it for a long time without any complications. I was wondering how you managed your diabetes and how strict you are with your diet, like do you only eat set meals throughout the day and stay away from foods with a high glycemic index? If you do eat foods with a high GI, like a banana, do you wait a while after taking your insulin to give it a headstart?
Avatar m tn Instead of processed foods try eating more natural foods (for snacks fruits and/or veggies are excellent choices). Instead of potatochips, try lightly salted popcorn. If you are type 2 diabetic, there is a study about that, that most type 2's go undiagnosed for a long time, by the time they're diagnosed some damage has been done to the kidneys.
Avatar n tn But maybe some of the snacks and foods that are more diabetic-geared will help us not freak out if we see a higher BG. I have found many different groups/websites where I can buy their products, and is this something we should consider? But any kind of site where we could go and see a list of foods/snacks would certainly give us a better feel for this starting period (as if there really is such a thing for this disease).
Avatar m tn As Zoelula stated, almonds, walnuts and pecans are very appropriate for a diabetic diet.
Avatar m tn • All you ate was the banana at breakfast? • Any foods/snacks between breakfast and 3pm? • Any juices or energy drinks from breakfast to 3pm? • When and how often do you test? Start testing to see which foods affect your glucose levels. And, of course, maintain normal body and perform 30-60 mins of daily exercise. If your levels remain high it may be time to see your doctor for adjustments to your medications.
Avatar f tn ) Anyone with diabetes should avoid alcohol, sugary drinks (soda, juices) processed foods, sugary snacks, baked goods, white flour, white pasta, chips, crackers, etc. Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn She couldn't have sweets and they had her on a strict eating schedule - certain times for meals and snacks - to make sure she was eating at the proper times - some foods like celery she could eat as much as she wanted - other foods like almonds or nuts were limited to just a few per serving. She logged all of her food intake and what time she ate at. Sounds like a lot of work, I know, but you are doing it for the good of you and the baby - and it's not forever.
Avatar f tn Since he is type 1 diabetic, it is a benefit to him if he gets his protein from his foods. The protein helps slow down the digestion of carbohydrates that he may be eating for that meal. It is okay he does not eat meat. Eggs, all dairy products (milk, cheeses, yogurt), nuts (if not allergic) with bread/crackers or in salads, or rice and beans are all good protein sources. Suggest giving him a protein source for all meals and snacks so he will get the protein he needs without protein pills.
Avatar f tn Hello im 7 weeks pregnant i have been a diabetic for 2 years...im having a hard time controlling my sugars can someone tell me what foods help control sugars???
Avatar n tn and then after a while you'll have a better idea of what foods do (and do not) cause a problem with your blood sugars. A diabetic educator and/or a nutritionist familiar with diabetic diets might be your best bet to start getting yourself on a healthy diet for *you*. Without knowing your specific situation, I will offer this general advice: usually, for we diabetics, keeping a set routine of meal times, exercise, and sleep/wake times really helps control blood sugars.
Avatar f tn The calorie intake for a growing 8 year old is approximately 2000 calories a day that are eaten as three meals and snacks between meals. Limit high sugar drinks/snacks, and try replacing with milk/yogurt or fruit/popcorn/low-fat cheese.
Avatar n tn Lots of simple sugars in snacks and junk food is a no no for heart beat....... ......and also things like fruit juices are worse that sugared soft drinks...... refined flour and gains are bad......look for whole gain products in paste/breads and rice... Eat whole foods and avoid processed junk...... Does that help some?
Avatar f tn I have it too, and it is quite agressive. My dr IS super supportive though, & has prescribed metformin to help hormone suppression: however I AM also seeing a dietician, who has me on a calorie controlled diet (1400 cals a day). Those calories must be proper foods, solid meals & healthy snacks.
Avatar n tn Also, even though you're married, it doesn't mean you both have the same dietary needs or reactions. If you're diabetic, for example, and your husband isn't, you obviously have very different dietary guidelines to follow. If you're ill in some way and your husband isn't, you either have to agree to eat as you have to eat or to not eat together, which isn't a terrible or uncommon thing.
