Common Questions and Answers about Diet food for diabetic person

diabetes

Avatar m tn my question is a type 2 diabetic person can feel weakness and lazy to do activities. thank you.
Avatar n tn Believe me - as a Type 1 I had the same questions about a Diabetic Diet and for the most part - Food Exchanges just confused me because they overly complicated something simple. Type 1 or Type 2 or Type 1.5 - we all have the same meal planning problem. Unfortunately - there is no "list" of safe foods. You have to make your own. BUT - it's not so hard. The trick is to look at Nutritional Labels on food products. 99% of everything has it.
Avatar f tn Is there any specific diet for diabetic patients? There are many articles online but confusing for which to follow. Some say fruits are bad, others say they are healthy, for example, bananas. Are there certain vitamins or supplements to take or any natural change of eating habits? It may vary from person to person but generally what should one eat to control levels of blood sugar.
Avatar m tn Look for Dreamfield's pasta. Extremely low in digestive carbs and has great flavor. Their mfg process prevents most digestible carbs from being absorbed. Carbs turn into sugar after eating. Normally pasta would jack me into the high 200's or low 300's. With Dreamfields my 2-3 hour glucose levels hovers in the low 150's mid 140's. Pizza dough uses white flour. White flour is high in carbohydrates, which in turn turns into sugar after eating. Have you ever tried corn meal or whole-wheat crusts?
Avatar n tn I am diabetic how many times take food for a day. what type of food? i do excerse every day 1 hour 15min tredmil and cycling its enough or do the exersese extra time? my age 50 years waight 87kg i am drink whisky etc... monthly 4 times. each time 240ml.
1096512 tn?1384893378 I just wish we should be aware of answers to such questions because DM is a very difficult to manage and these questions often haunt us when we are diabetic. A case of Asian,52 yrs T2DM for 20years,taking Insulin 24IU at meals and 50IU at bed time,obese,being Hypertensive(controlled on medication),with no other complaints other than left eye cataract,planning for surgery. The questions are: 1.What should be his diet plan? 2.
Avatar f tn with phentermine and B-12 shots every 2 wks. Does anyone know if it's safe for a diabetic person to take phentermine. His doctor prescribed him "Alli" to lose weight, but he didn't even bother to buy them. I just get scared that one day he might get a heart attack. He just doesn't take care of himself, he sometimes gets upset with Mom, when she tries to tell him, not to eat certain foods because they're bad for him.
Avatar n tn I can make the woozy go away by eating glucose tabs or carbs/sugar. I have balanced my diet and reduced food intake (carbs/proteins)...sort of like the diet of a hypoglysemic. If I eat too much at breakfast, I get woozy within an hour or two then it goes away. My ears are ringing. I sleep good and feel good when I get up but must be careful to eat a balanced breakfast & not eat too much or I will get woozy. My urine color looks normal.
Avatar n tn I followed the protocol in KT's book and began my diet on the third day but Dr. Simmeon's protocol says to gorge for 3 days and then begin the diet. I don't know why there is a day difference in the protocols. Also I noticed that DR. Simmeon says to eat white fish but in KT's book he is specific about the white fish being halibut, Chilean sea bass, flounder or sole. Is anyone following just Dr. Simmeon's protocol and if so are you eating other white fish like orange roughy or tilapia?
Avatar n tn They are really informative, and can teach you how to get the proper nutrition for a person with kidney disease. I learned a lot from mine. I got one from Amazon.com. Good Luck!
Avatar n tn If your lab is on WD then he is in fact on a diet food. High fibre is definately the way to go to help any diabetic dog but the fibre used in WD is actualy peanut shells...not very nutritious but a very cheap fibre. What your lab needs is a highly digestible food which has complex catbohydrates like brown rice and also a good and easily digestible protein like chicken. Burns nutrition do a chicken and brown rice dried food which my cairn does well on. He is gaining weight very slowly.
Avatar n tn This is logical for the type 2 diabetic, for eating a fairly low-carbohydrate diet would not require the production of as much insulin by the already stressed pancreas. However, if insulin resistance is the main problem for a type 2 diabetic, then lowering the carb count may not really be the solution, and medications to help the insulin-resistance problem still may be needed.
Avatar n tn Thank you for your comment. I should have provided more info but wanted to keep it brief. My weight is good and I do exercise - walking is what I love. There is a history of Type 11 on both sides of my family and I did have gestational diabetes back 40 years ago. And no obesity in family either. About 30 years ago, my mother insisted I be checked for diabetes, given the history.
Avatar f tn You would also need to tell them of your pre-diabetic condition. The dietician in the hospital would be the best person to talk to. You should be able to take your own protein drinks. Again just ask! I had to do that as I am gluten intolerant. By ringing in advance it gives enough time for the hospital to arrange specific liquids and food for you.
Avatar f tn Our FBS will fluctuate constantly throughout the day due to the filling/empting of the stomach and food. To find out if you are diabetic you need to have a Glucose tolerance test taken which is a 3hour test. You are underweight for your height. Recommend a Heart Healthy diet which is a moderate fat diet to help you stay healthy and gain weight. You need approximately 1800-2000 calories per day which is spread across 3-5 meals a day with snacks between meals.
Avatar n tn I don't believe that PATM can be transmitted from person to person. I've had this for much to long for people around not to acquire it. Yea they react to it but they don't get it.
878888 tn?1319637644 So you take synthroid.......your doc should have given you a thyroid antibody test for auto immune thyroid, that is the standard next step. Hoshimotos disease is hypothyroid caused by antibodies. You really need to know this. It needs to regulated closer than just a slow thyroid. And since its an auto immune disease other autoimmune diseases have a greater chance to happen- so you need to pay attention to your body more and play it safe. Did you know Diabetes is an auto immune disease?
Avatar f tn Before turning to food products for answers (except for the obvious ones such as nicotine), one of the best things you could do is to go back over your genealogy when studying your own health issues. Before Aspartame was invented my ancestors still had these same symptoms and problems that current family members have in relation to Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. Not too odd considering that Nutrasweet was first put into a very few products in 1974.
1327431 tn?1327075704 I do have the odd 'binge' every now and then and will have a McDonalds cheeseburger but I dont enjoy them like I used to a few years ago and the same goes for Pizza. I put it down to not having take away food , changing my diet 3 years ago and the 'change' stuck with me. Graves and Hyper foods to avoid strictly is Soy and Iodine. They 2 foods will set your levels sky high. If you find Methimazole has made you super HYPO...eat a can of tuna everyday for a few days...
Avatar n tn pudding,doughnuts,hot dogs,cream cheese with pineapple,etc.Thats it for fat for me.I will continue to eat regular food and I'm sure at the end of the day it may add up to 20 grams of fat.But to eat just heavy fatty foods would be painful to me trying to digest that,especially before bed.I wouldn't be able to sleep from the digestive pain.
251922 tn?1193786078 do you want the break down of mixing bac water to hcg ratio for 5000IU? or the actual mark on the syringe for injection of 125?
256349 tn?1189759437 Take it from a former starving diet fool who lived on 600 cals for lengths of time...I have NEVER had the fat deposits come off in this manner. You girls just keep at it. The fat on our bodies will hurt us way more than HCG ever could from a medical standpoint. SO who cares if it does or doesn't work as they say.
Avatar n tn chris2989, is your mom needing to lose some weight, is that why you want her to try the hcg? Well here was the diet I've been on. I was drinking a slim fast drink for breakfast, apple for a snack, slim fast bar for lunch, and then for dinner 1 boneless, skinless piece of chicken grilled with 1 cup of veggies (no butter or anything) and a half a cup of brown wild rice every other day. That's it.
Avatar n tn There is a newer insulin regimin called Lantus which doesn't require a person using it to eat at prescribed times as does the other long-acting insulins. For a person using Lantus, they would take that injection 1 or 2 times each day to cover their basal rate of insulin. Then when they eat, they calculate how many carbs they'll be consuming and given an insulin-to-carb ratio provided by their doctor, they would deliver the proper amount of insulin.
Avatar m tn I Getting back to your original question, there are cases of people diagnosed in their childhood surviving into their 70s and 80s. With regular check ups, correct diet, medicine and exercise, you as a newly diagnosed person should have near normal life expectancy.
232342 tn?1192700320 Does he really need to get into medication for diabetic or exercise and food habit can decrease teh level.he had gone through teh test 6 montsh back where he had diabetes in bit higher side and tryglyceride as 300( where the max should be 150). As per the doc we didn't get into any medication as taht time he was going thorugh alot of mental stres for his work. Even now a days he is quite stressed but is that impact diabetes ?
Avatar n tn If you go searching about life expectancy and diabetes, you will find that manyn type 2 diabetics do die younger than other adults, but this is largely because of obesity. For the type 1 diabetic, obesity is rarely an issue.
733939 tn?1231776955 I'm sorry, but it doesn't work that way! For a Type II diabetic the correct step for you and your doctor to take is to start you on some oral medications and help you to learn the right way to eat. I agree with the person who said not to think of it as a diet but as good nutrition. Please don't be afraid to eat! As a diabetic, you need regular meals to stay balanced. I like to think of it that way....balance; you don't want to be too high OR too low. So don't skip meals!
Avatar m tn Most of these are very processed foods and can contain lots of starches and sugars which (diabetic or not) is pretty bad for you. This include obvious fast food- but also hamburger helper, generic white bread, and lean cuisine frozen dinners. Also do your best to avoid canned foods. Meats, soups, and veggies can have tons of sodium added to them and a lot of their nutrients kills- really you just don't need that.
Avatar n tn Ever since he was in about 1st grade (age 6) he has had frequent urination, sometimes going every half hour. Our doctor did urine cultures and everything came out normal except for acetone in his urine. He had one spell in first grade of extreme confusion where according to the teacher he was acting strange and sat down on the floor. He is now in fifth grade and has not had anything like that.
