Avatar n tn org I hope you find this information helpful ~ my best advice is to work with your mom's doc to get the answers and treatment you need for your mom.
72351 tn?1281996142 We cannot offer medical advice, and frankly, we are folks whose experience is with insulin treatment of type 1 diabetes instead of type 2 diabetes (which is your condition since you are not taking insulin). However, the common sense answer is that if you only take one tablet per day, you certainly want it doing most of its work while you are awake and eating fairly often than at night while you are not.
1286779 tn?1400016406 Sometimes patients are undertreated, which makes losing weight much harder. Best diet for thyroid is generally lower carb type diet. Avoid junk food, highly processed foods, and sugars. Don't eat too much fruit, or drink fruit juices. Some people with thyroid conditions do much better following gluten free diet. Would be good if you can be tested for celiac. Sometimes celiac and thyroid occur together. Hope this helps. btw, all caps means you are "yelling".
1028452 tn?1537452084 Does Your Blood Type Reveal Your Personality? According to a Japanese institute that does research on blood types, there are certain personality traits that seem to match up with certain blood types. How do you rate? TYPE O You want to be a leader, and when you see something you want, you keep striving until you achieve your goal. You are a trend-setter, loyal, passionate, and self-confident. Your weaknesses include vanity and jealously and a tendency to be too competitive.
Avatar n tn The difference in the diet for Type 2 is that you do not have to eat on such a strict schedule. Please be careful to check your blood sugars often. You should not have more than 3 servings of carbs per meal as recommended by the ADA. I did not take my diagnosis seriously and now I am on 3 different meds and headed toward insulin therapy. PLEASE get all the info you need from your doctor and if he/she seems uninterested or unknowledgeable about your condition get another doctor.
Avatar f tn There is also a book by Dr. D'Adamo called Live Right for Your Blood type To Moonpanda - I know the diet might not be genetically accurate but for me it is so interesting. My mom is type O too and she had to have thyroid surgery and she suffers from ulcers just like the book says. To ILADVOCATE: It may not be accurate according to the book there are thousands of people that have tried the diet with success, but like Paranoid_catacylsm said it's kinda fun to find out about.
1230912 tn?1273496370 It had me wondering because the negative factor actually triggers a response after the birth of a positive blood baby-when the blood mixes into your blood stream it causes an auto immune response to fight the baby's blood mixed into yours. So that on top of having issues (infections) with my first birth I figured is what triggered the MS, but why it is just showing up now after the birth of my son so many years later????
Avatar f tn and how big a impact those words of change your diet would have !! The last couple of days I have been walking around a lil stunned not really knowing what the heck to do. I'm afraid to eat !! instead of wheat bread the say white :( it is 25 mg of Phos. Barley 1/2 cup 40mg piece of salmon 279mg. a apple 15mg. this is just a example It is in everything we eat ! we drink ! I have a list of what is bad and what is better for me..but the better for me is in very small portions..
Avatar n tn may have been the result of your body literally starving while all the sugar in your foods remained in your blood (DKA & a reading of 700 is dangerous and simply a sign that diabetes had been uncontrolled). Your appetite for sugar was the result of your cells literally starving, becuase without insulin, sugar cannot get to our muscles or organs or other cells to nourish them.
Avatar n tn If you have developed a significant insulin resistance as shown by the need to take higher doses of insulin to maintain blood sugars, you might also want to talk to your endo about putting you on metformin. Usually a type 2 medication it is often used in type 1's to combat IR and it can help keep weight down/lose weight as well. Other than that I don't recommend some of the fad diets people talk about as they can be really not good for people with diabetes.
Avatar n tn nor do I know much about the blood type diet. I know there are some on it. No matter what your blood type, there are always certain things we should and should not eat; for instance, we should not eat refined sugar, etc, but we should eat lean proteins, dairy, whole grains, etc -- unless, you have an allergy that prevents you from eating certain foods. I'm sure someone will chime in on this particular diet.
Avatar n tn Try the blood type diet. worked for me. lost 60 lbs in six months. Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo has a book out that makes a ton of sense called "eating right 4 your type". It works!
Avatar n tn Clearly, a low-carb diet keeps your blood sugar under control, so.... yeah, avoid high-carb meals, including breaded meats, high-sugar marinades, and high-sugar desserts. And for the love of yourself, eat some leafy veggies, up your fiber intake, and seriously, see a nutritionist for a consult about how to eat to help manage all your current medical conditions and help avoid developing diabetes.
Avatar f tn I'm assuming you are a Type II diabetic since you're posting here. In order to control your blood sugar you need to limit your carb intake. Unfortunately there is no exact number of carbs to eat. Some people, especially Type 2's have good results with controlling their diabetes by eating very low carb like 30 a day. Others do well with "lowish" or moderate carbs like 100. To control your blood sugar, what you need to do is "eat to your meter".
Avatar f tn I switched to an Atkins-like lifestyle about a year ago after being told I had be become a type 2 diabetic. I reduced my carbohydrate intake to less than 50 grams per day. I found that my overall heart rhythm improved and noticed a reduction in the number of PVC's.
Avatar m tn If you must, do so with a meal as your trying to prevent a raise in your insulin levels which will through your blood sugar off like crazy. Now all this being said, do they know the cause of your blood sugar? On pasta, I use a whole grain one and I look at which one has more protein. Also, if you don't cook it as long it is better for you ( 7 minutes instead orinserince in cold water to stop the cooking process...heat it up when needed.
Avatar f tn If you have cut your calories drastically, youur blood sugar is going to stay low and, I wouldn't be surprised at you feeling tired, light headed and weak. In addition to that, if your are doing some type of very hard exercise that you aren't used to, it could be more than your body can take all at once. This is not a "lifestyle" change.
Avatar n tn Also keep an open mind that you may also need additional medication to control your sugars while you eat a balanced diet. Try to get daily exercise as this will also help tremendously. Good luck and take care!
1346724 tn?1282326504 If you plan on getting your child tested for that (if he has strange bm's, diarrhea, etc) you'll want to wait until after you get the test to start the diet. They can't do a blood test for celiac if you're already gluten-free. Good luck!
Avatar n tn Fruits are good for you but in small quantities and if your blood sugar isn't controlled, you have to be very very careful with these. Aim more for fruits with less natural fructose in them. Besides that I'm unsure what will set off her tummy issues. It might help her to keep a food diary and not what, when, and how much she's eating and the reaction to it.
Avatar m tn Try to make an appointment with a diabetic nutritionist to educate you about foods you should eat and what foods to avoid. Ask your doctor for a referral. "need other tips so that my a-1c gets better. any ideas?" Diabetes control is simple and requires a lifestyle change. Proper nutrition, physical exercise 5 times a week and maintaining proper body weight all play a key role, especially the physical exercise. Hope this gave you some ideas.
307500 tn?1302119746 0 is good, but it's a little higher than a non-diabetic should be. If you've managed your diet by consuming fewer carbs, you can positively affect your blood sugars and a1c that way. In fact, prior to the discovery of insulin, the treatment regimen for diabetes was to eat absolutely no carbs. If you're having problems with high blood sugars, the best way to treat that is with insulin. However, your question is about the cause of the highs.
Avatar f tn POTS and the autonomic disorder can cause her to pass out from level changes (for example-if she runs track and takes a starting position and then jumps up to run or if she is on cheerleading and has to go from standing to kneeling). The blood doesn't travel to the brain quick enough. My doctors have all but told me not to exercise, particularly cardio. They especially caution not to do it unless someone is around. Anyway, I hope it helps.
Avatar n tn Before that I was the blood type diet (type A) so I did not eat meat for the most part on that scenario and I was actually never hungry. Type A does not get to eat meat on that plan but I didn't miss it much surprisingly. So for me, before I ever started the HCG, I made some major lifestyle changes by deciding to go on the blood type diet. so when I did go on HCG I was already a bit prepared I supposes. There were days when I would gain a pound but then lose 2 pounds.
Avatar n tn If you are still concerned about not losing weight or trimming inches off, see your MD and get blood-work done including your thyroid, which regulates your metabolism. Hope this helped.
Avatar n tn A1C measures the average blood sugar for a period of a couple months; OGTT measures your body's reaction to glucose by giving you a sugary drink and then measuring over two hours for your response. As far as losing weight to reduce chance of type 2 diabetes that relates to people who are overweight and developing insulin resistance. This is not you. As far as preventing diabetes those "tons of sodas" which I assume are the kind with sugar are what you need to work on!
Avatar n tn i would recommend that at your next doctor appointment you ask to be referred to a dietician to go over the proper diet aspects for a diabetic.
