Common Questions and Answers about Type 2 diabetes diet food list


Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with Type 2 last year. I moved to rural Pennsylvania and do not have access to a diabetes specialist or center and I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out what I can eat. I only drink diet soda, milk, tomato juice and tea and have cut out cake, ice cream, candy, etc. I eat low sugar cookies when I need something sweet. I'm at a loss as to what to eat for breakfast.
8369322 tn?1397830269 He has been curing a number of diseases at his Patagonia ranch for decades mainly with food. He gets many type 2 diabetics off insulin in 21 days. The program seems to work for most that stick with it, though some do not.
Avatar n tn While I may be able to shed some light on the whole food thing for you, this forum focuses on type 1 diabetes and not type 2. One of the things you stated is that your mother had stopped all sugars and was eating three meals a day consisting of wheat breads, salads, veggies and fruit and some sugar free cookies. You are puzzled why her blood sugars are not dropping even though she's eating this way. The problem is (and most people don't realize this!
798555 tn?1292791151 Prediabetes is usually seen as a precursor to type 2 type diabetes, which is not the autoimmune type. Type 2 diabetes, was known as adult onset type, has a strong genetic component and is often associated with insulin resistance. This forces the pancreas to work harder and eventually it can't produce enough insulin. Type 1 is autoimmune type. This happens when the insulin producing cells of the pancreas are attacked by antibodies which destroy them.

Avatar n tn I am 24 years old and have had type 1 diabetes since 1 1/2 years old. I have been on the insulin pump for 4 years now and have experienced much better control....still not where it could be, but way better prior to the pump. Recently I have found myself wondering what is wrong with my memory. I have trouble remembering most of my childhood or even events that happened months ago. I can only truly remember portions of conversations I have. My boyfriend tells me all the time....
Avatar m tn Dreamfields has 65% less digestive carbs than other brands making it much safer to consume FOR Type 2 diabetics. Dreamfields targets the Type 2 diabetic community NOT neither Type 1's nor Type 1.5/LADA diabetics.Those in the latter group may encounter inconsistencies.
Avatar f tn Just like anyone with diabetes, you can control or prevent it by eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly. Many people just assume sweets are what causes surges in blood sugar, but most of it is actually from carbs. Watch the amount of carbs you consume and have the same amount daily. Eating multiple small meals a day can keep your blood sugar levels even. Also eat less carbs in the morning at breakfast than any other time of day because insulin resistance is greatest in the am.

Also if you are going to get tested for food allergies, don't cut out the foods for a prolonged period before the test or a reaction may not occur; especially in celiacs/gluten testing in which the antibodies will not be present during the test if you have been gluten free for a period before the test.
Avatar n tn As far as hunger went, I was only slightly hungryfor the first 2-3 days, but after that I wasn't hungry again. I did use the 2 apples a day between meals as my snack. I drank alot of water, I live in Texas and it is really hot here so I am use to drinking lots of water. I worked out hard. It took my mind off the diet. What really impressed me about his protocol is the way my body was being reshaped. My waist got very small, mu stomach very flat. I have nicely defined arms and legs.
Avatar n tn Hi critcrit! I am the mom of an 18 year old girl who was diagnosed at the age of 21 months. I am not a medical professional, so any information passed on to you is based solely on my personal experience in dealing with type 1 diabetes. All suggestions should be verified with your son's healthcare team. I can totally relate to where you are right now with both the adjustment to living with diabetes and the hunger/snacking issues.
Avatar n tn Besides optimising thyroid hormone levels so your metabolism speeds up, the low carb high fat diet is something to consider. High-fat ketogenic diet fuels rapid weight loss, say obesity experts... "But Westman says rapid weight loss isn't the only benefit of a ketogenic diet, which has been found effective in treating epilepsy, reverses type 2 diabetes, and preventing heart disease. New research indicates the low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet fights depression and bipolar disorder.
Avatar n tn I am Type ll diabetic taking metformin & Januvia. My levels are climbing and the Dr. is considering insulin for me. I do not want to be insulin dependent. Trying to lower with diet changes but have other health issues that restrict what I can eat. I have high cholesterol (can't take any statin drugs to lower), diverticulosis,irritable bowel, fibromyalgia and now a mouth full of braces so am unable to eat many things because my teeth do not hit together to chew.
Avatar f tn Hyperinsulinism is prediabetes. Insulin causes the body to store fat. PCOS is a separate issue, but they both cause weight gain/inability to lose. With preidiabetes and PCOS, I'd have to wonder if you've also had your thyroid tested to make sure you don't have hypothyroidism, since it's basically the thyroid that controls metabolism, specifically, a hormone called Free T3. With prediabetes, you need to eat foods that are on the low glycemic list.
Avatar f tn //www.webmd.com/diabetes/features/five-ways-to-control-type-2-diabetes#1. Cutting down on carbohydrates, eating a heathy diet are important as is getting to a good weight that is within healthy BMI. But do note that simply working on it and losing 'some' weight is better than nothing and you will impact your health in a positive way by doing this. As for hypertension/high blood pressure. Again, there are life style things to try.
Avatar n tn Just off the top of my head, I would suggest an avocado ( if, of course, you love avocados. like I do) . It has very healthy fat and many great nutrients. During tx we need to eat healthy whole foods and this fits the bill. Nutritional info below. According to this, we would need to eat almost a whole med size avocado, but one could tweek that. (it also gives us some good calories for those that don't want to lose weight) @somuchmore2....
Avatar f tn Trans fat can raise bad LDL cholesterol and lower good HDL cholesterol. Food companies must list trans fat on their food labels. Many companies have stopped using trans fat in their products. A food with 0.5 grams or less of trans fat is listed as “0 grams” of trans fat on the label. If you eat more than one serving of that food, you may still be getting trans fat in your diet.
338920 tn?1195643836 My wife will be seeing our doctor tomorrow (11-21-07) He's going to discuss with her starting tx. My wife is Type 1, Stage 4 and her Viral Load is over 2 million. She also has high blood pressure and diabetes. Does anyone have any advice for us? Will diabetes make tx harder for her and should she do different things during tx? I know the doctor will answer these questions, but I'm so worried about my wife, that I'd like to hear some words from people who have been there.
Avatar f tn I did a quick search online and found a couple articles linking hep c infection to diabetes type 2, which is what my hubby has. My questions are, has anyone else been dx'ed with diabetes 2, and do you have any advice for us? And, had anyone tx'ed for hep c with diabetes? Are there any special complications? Thanks!
251922 tn?1193786078 I am no expert but I would recomend A day of 2 big fiber drinks, some type of natural collan clense and only 6 apples and water all day. see if it helps. ( you need the fiber to give the colan something to push ) . Please don't get discouraged.
Avatar f tn I enjoy shopping for my food and finding new ways to make it. It is a great diet for diabetes too. My daughter, who has ADHD (never on meds for it) has calmed down with just changing our food choices...so added bonus!!! Not everyone will agree with me but I know how I feel..I feel like I am in my early 20's ( I will be 40 in Dec)...and my skin looks great, too.
Avatar f tn I agree as well, raw fruits and veggies are our natural diet so it makes since we feel better on a natural diet. Although, I am curious as to how arsenic getting into anyones food now a days?
733939 tn?1231776955 Hi I just got diagnosed type 2 diabetic this past weekend. i was started on glucophage immediately and given menus and diets to follow. even though i have these menus i am so afraid of eating now....i managed to get through the weekend pretty good and my numbers have come down...they were 330 and over the weekend i ranged from 275 to 307.

Avatar f tn I too have type 2 diabetes, and fibro, and also throw in degenerative osteoarthritis. At one time I was seeing a phusical therapist, for the fibro. I had lots of fatty lumps as you describe them. The PT said they were from myofascial spasm syndrome. He would exert hard pressure to break them up. Stripping up and down my arms, legs, ribcage, exc. Left lots of bruises. Over the years they have come back.
Avatar n tn It worked good for me. As far as diet I started with the Swank diet but think the Paleo Diet has shown more success in threating neurological diseases. As far as the dental thing I had 10 root canals and an assortment of fillings. My gums were bleeding and that was clearly a problem in my case. Everyone must decide this issue for theirself because this is a major decision. I have some information concerning this issue that I will post.
Avatar n tn Get a GTT + insulin levels - find out if you have IGT, IFG, type 2 diabetes and/or insulin resistance, or even an very early type 1. Also get complete blood work, cortisol, hormones, etc - they may be overlooking something.
Avatar f tn This is related to insulin resistance/pre-diabetes and if left untreated can become full blown type II diabetes. Insulin resistance is also related to a condition called Metabolic Syndrome, which is a cluster of conditions, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high trigylcerides, high blood sugar, obesity (excess fat around the middle). The components of Metabolic Syndrome are often present with hypothyroidism.
1666434 tn?1325265950 My husband's grandmother has Type II diabetes and we are now living close enough to her where we can have her over for dinners and to visit. My question is I don't want to serve her something that would not be good for her and I have no experience with diabetics at all. Can anyone suggest a good resource or food list that I should use?
