Pre diabetic snacks

Common Questions and Answers about Pre diabetic snacks


Avatar f tn said I don't have diabetes but when I went online I saw that the ADA considers a FBS between 100-126 pre-diabetes. This really upset me because my Dad was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 44. I inherited his skinny genes and have been underweight all of my life . My question is I want to do what the ADA recommends which is watch my carbs , exercise more and do everything I can to avoid getting full blown diabetes. How does a skinny person deal with pre- diabetes?
872485 tn?1240607162 I had an A1C test and it came back at 6.4%. He said he wants me to follow a diabetic diet and exercise and have retest in 6 months. My fasting BS was 88, so that's good. I was told in college (I"m 34) that I had hypoglycemia and both my grandparents (one on each side) has diabetes. Does 6.4 mean I'm prediabetic? diabetic? Thanks!
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 f tn I recently read that low sugar levels during the night can cause terrors.Are pre diagnosed diabetic spells frequent or a slow process like my dd's symptoms?Are these hypo symptoms? Can it lean toward diabetes now,or in the future?I sincerely thank you if you can maybe give me some validation about my fears or helpful insight.Hoping to hear similar stories and outcomes.
798555 tn?1292791151 Will an endo do this 'preprandial' test willingly on a pre-diabetic patient? How many foods do I need to do this test on?
15298662 tn?1439720697 I would be the first one it has skipped. Also my dad's dad and his grandpa had it as well. So I am worried that I may be pre diabetic but I am not exactly sure. So of course given my family's history it worries me.
Avatar f tn she is a pre-diabetic with islet cell antibodies in her system. She's having abnormal high scores, but nothing too high. She's having lows, and that's where your concern is based. From that summary, as a non-medical professional, I'd have to say that your daughter is likely to be developing type 1. Ketones, moderate highs, and severe lows are the symptoms on which I'd base that. That being said, she may never actually develop diabetes.
1663743 tn?1302920003 Diabetes is usually serious, and the blood work would show you to be a pre-diabetic years before you turn to a diabetic. so don't worry too much. Look at your HDL level and triglyceride level to see if they are normal in the lab results.
Avatar m tn nothing is wrong with you. If you have been diagnosed as being pre diabetic, then it is psychology that I have as well. Try to eat a snack every two hours even if you have some almonds or any kind of seeds. Always balance your meal (carbs & protein). So if you have an orange, then add some almonds to it, Never have a protein or carb by itself. With chicken, have a salad. The more you do this, your symptoms will go away.
667829 tn?1297981723 I've been insulin resistant for about 3 years now so I don't think it was a big surprise to my OB that I'd have gestational diabetes already...... (pre-diabetic, mother has type 2 diabetes) I did kind of feel like an outsider at the initial meeting though - the other gals were "normal" around 24-28 weeks.
Avatar f tn Yes, that is a bit high for a fasting. Normal fasting blood sugars should be under 100. 100-125 is considered pre-diabetes and 126 and over is considered diabetic. I would take her in and have her tested so you know where to go from here. Also if she is diabetic, be sure they find her Type by antibody testing.
Avatar f tn My son's bloodwork came back with high triglycerides, very high bad cholesterol and very high insulin. He is apparently pre-diabetic, definitely insulin-resistant. I visited and discovered that what I always though was psoriasis on his elbows and palm is probably acanthosis nigricans. His dad has Type II diabetes so my son is predisposed to it. We've immediately changed his diet and increased his exercise regimen.
900662 tn?1469393905 Bump anyone else out there pre-diabetic ? The diet is going ok.
Avatar n tn In general, the recommendation is 30-60 grams for meals, and 15-30 for snacks, but again- talk to your doctor about your situation specifically.
Avatar f tn I have been having problems with LOW BLOOD SUGAR. I am NOT a diabetic. Example: this morning i was dizzy, glucose was 115. I had a cup of yogurt, 30 mins later my level dropped to 95. After eating breakfast { 1 egg, 2 pcs whole wheat toast and 1 Tbsp peanut butter it dropped to 78. I can not seem to maintain my level and have been dizzy, nausuous and all the other symptons. It is hard to eat 6 meals a day as I work. I try to eat whole grains, and don't use sugar. I just can't keep my level up.
Avatar f tn You need to ask your doctor to tell you what your A1C is and determine if you are pre-diabetic or diabetic. A1C's of 5.7-6.4 are prediabetic and 6.5 is diabetic. In general the side effects from Metformin are gastrointestinal and often pass after a couple weeks. Some people are not able to tolerate it and need to be changed. The best way to control blood sugar is through weight loss, exercise and carb reduction. You also want to get a meter and test your blood sugar.
Avatar n tn I am not a physician, but am a long-time type 1 diabetic, diagnosed 34 years ago. I can only answer from my own experience, both as a chld and now as an adult, but several common-sense things come to mind. First, I would give her doctor a call before she leaves in case he has any suggestions for you. It appears that her glucose control is within acceptable ranges from her last ha1c, so the important thing will be to keep doing whatever you are doing now while she is traveling.
296076 tn?1371338074 If you do have any concerns, do speak with your doctor or diabetic nurse. In the UK we do get annual diabetic checks as a routine, but more frequently when the diabetes is not controlled well. We also get our eyes checked annually for any damage to the back of the eye because of diabetes. This test is not the same as going to the optician to check for problems with vision.
Avatar f tn Told i was pre-diabetic based on fasting BS of around 125. Started monitoring and sugars rarely go below 100. Even on days when I work through lunch and forget to eat, I notice my sugar drops very very slowly. Like between 8:30-4:30 one day, i forgot to do lunch. BS started around 110 after breakfast cereal and was still 90 8hrs later. So 90 after about 20hrs without food except that bowl of cereal and milk at 8:30.
Avatar m tn Check your blood sugar levels it sounds like your levels are low.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed at age 25 as pre-diabetic/hypoglycemic... and I was in super shape then. I had come back from France, my meal times were therefore changed and that was enough to give me hypoglycemia. I took a 3 hours sugar/blood test that I failed. My symptoms are dizziness, migraine, sometimes I feel like throwing up. It can last for days. Stress can make it worse.
Avatar f tn I don't have gestational. I've been diabetic for 20 years. All the numbers and info is the same. They want your numbers under 125 2 hr after meals. If you're low (under 70) you may feel clammy/sweaty, shaking, heart racing. If your sugar is high (200 and up usually) you may feel nauseous, extreme thirst, frequent urination. If your numbers are high you need to call your doctor. Mine says 200 is the cutoff to call.
Avatar f tn That's what I focus my meal plans around. That way any extra snacks or indulgences full of sugar or white flour don't throw my diet into carb overload. Easier said than done with morning sickness but really its better for any pregnant woman to eat that way (and it can prevent GD). It's just that people with gestational diabetes HAVE to eat that way. I always think I'll have GD coz too many carbs make me feel sick and dizzy, but it never shows up on my test result.
Avatar n tn My prayers are with you as for your diabetes I can share my story I have been pre-diabetic for a while probably a year and was not eating right like I should and went into full-blown diabetes in December. Welll while on vacation almost 2 months ago I went into hypoglycemia and did not know it. I was urinating a lot and thirsty. When I got home from vacation I tested my blood sugar it was 458. When I went to my doctor my A-1 C was 12.1. I was in denial but after that visit I changed my life.
Avatar n tn What are the best suggestions for handling a day's worth of Humolog and snacks, where your likely to be shaken, splashed, and subjected to temperatures approaching 90 degrees F? I've seen wallets with tiny "cool-packs" of questionable duration, and wondered whether a pre-drawn syringes for the day would do a better job at protecting the main supply back in the hotel room.
Avatar m tn "This Dawn Phenomenon is related to Diabetes?" Yes and no. In non-diabetics some researchers believe it's due to the natural overnight release of stored glucose by the liver and the release of hormones — including growth hormones, cortisol, glucagon and epinephrine — that increase insulin resistance. In diabetics the morning glucose levels are substantially elevated.
Avatar f tn You may be "pre diabetic" or glucose intolerant. In the UK a level of 6.9 is classed as diabetes. You certainly do have symptoms of hypoglycaemia. This is when the sugar level drops too low - hence you feeling better when having something to eat. Ensure that if you are not able to have a meal, have a healthy snack. Always take something with you so that you can have to eat if you know you will be late for your usual meal.
Avatar f tn Starting next week i go for ultrasound every week to keep checking the measurements. I try not to think about it bc then i stress n it makes my sugar high. Bout im a diabetic pre pregnancy.
Avatar n tn in fact, I have the same ones, except I'm not diabetic - I'm pre-diabetic, but I got my levels back to normal and have lost some weight, as well... The first thing you have to do is make sure you thyroid hormone levels are where you need them... that doesn't mean just within the normal ranges; it mean "right for you".
Avatar f tn She certainly does not overeat, and no one in the family ever has. We are all slender. First I thought she might be pre-diabetic, but she isn't. Nor is she hypothyroid. The only thing I can think of is that she has been over-working for five years, was consistently short of sleep, and is exhausted. What I recommended to her is that she rest as much as possible and get a lot os sleep. She seems to be losing some weight, but does not want to get on a scale as yet.
