Type 2 diabetes diet sugar

Common Questions and Answers about Type 2 diabetes diet sugar


Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes for several years. The diet is the same diet recommended for Type 1 diabetes. Your doctor or The ADA can give you a copy of the recommended diet. 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.

Avatar f tn Hi Doctor, my mom is a type 2 diabetes patient. she takes 500 mg x 2 glucophage. since diabetes is linked to other diseases as well, what general tests or physical examinations should she have them done. what special precautions she shud take in her diet like taking high fibre diet is good for her. i have told her to take fish oil by pulse (1000 mg) thrice a week. is that good for her.
Avatar n tn So it's important to get started on a weight loss plan as soon as possible after you're diagnosed. What Happens When you have type 2 diabetes, cells that help your body control your blood sugar stop working right. Doctors used to think they were shut down for good, but research shows that certain cells may come back.
Avatar m tn i was diagnosed Diabetes type 2 in december 2010..I want to know that if someone is diabetic,how much he will live ???
Avatar n tn Low carb diet is absolutely the best way to manage diabetes. American Diabetes Association is now also recognizing this. By low carb we mean about 20 - 30 g of carbs per day. Protein should be adequate (can be up to 1.5g/ kg body weight), and healthy unprocessed fats (avoid vegetable oils) for energy balance. HEalthy fats include the fats that come with meats and full fat dairy, nuts, avocado etc.

Avatar n tn You're avoiding extra sugar which is great, but most carbs break down into sugar, so a lower carb diet really helps control blood sugar. The other two big things are portion control and fiber. Start looking at nutrional labels and being mindful of how *much* of any food item you are eating. High fiber diet is great for everyone, especially diabetics and those of us with problems controlling cholesterol.

Avatar m tn My nephew got type 2 diabetes which got diagnosed when he was admitted to hospital last week. He is 25 years and obese BMI is 29, overweight. He was not active and was lazy so far, he is asking everyone that how long he will be alive ;). Wanted to check if anyone has idea how long one can live by regular exercise and diet without medication? His sugar level with fasting is 129. PPBS is 130. Please let me know if anyone of you have got diabetes when you were 20's and controlling with diet.
Avatar m tn I have recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, my fasting blood sugar was 175. I am sure that these are on the higher side of the scale. My doctor adviced me to go retest after 2 weeks of exercise and strict diet control. Hence i completely changed my diet, no sugar, substantial decrease of carbs, relying on vegetables and sprouts or protein contents with additon to the 5-6 KM of walking. After two weeks when i went on re test, it was 140 on fasting. I have not used any medicine.

Avatar n tn With all you have been through, I think God himself is filtering your blood of all the excess sugar.ha You are an inspiration to us all! I probably will be eating twinkies all day once I start treatment,,,haven't had them since I was a child,,but whatever stays down in my stomach, I'll eat. Remember I'm not tx yet,,,easy for me to preach what not to eat...I may wind up being the worst offender! Praying ya Svr!!! Hang in!
Tbd (Of course there are those type 1s that were born this way as well.) Type 1 can be reversed within months with diet. I have reversed pre diabetes (A1C 5.7 down to 4.9) and my brother has reversed insulin dependent Type 2 (A1C now 5.2) and no longer taking ANY medications for diabetes or high blood pressure. It is controversial due to big pharma and the sugar and corn industries. But it works. If you want to learn more check out the 2ketodudes for starters.
Avatar n tn 2 years ago she was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. My Endo told me that all the hormone leves (estrogen, insulin, thyroid) all work together. When one is out of sync, the others eventually will be too. Since the Hyper part of my Graves disease has slowly starting heading toward Hypo T my cholesterol has started going up. The Endo has had me go on a high fiber diet. He checks my cholesterol every 2 months. At this point, he hasn't put me on cholesterol lowering medication.
Avatar m tn The only treatment for type 2 diabetes is weight loss, lowering carbs in your diet, exercise and medication as prescribed by a REAL doctor.
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!
Avatar f tn It is always possible to go from Type 2 diabtes to Type 1 Diabetes but never the reverse. Many times a Type 2 Diabetic will be treated as a Type 1 (on the same medications etc) but will not actually BE a Type 1. Reason being the treatments for a Type 1 are also effective on a Type 2 if that severity of treatment is needed. It is believed that Type 2 can be prevented or delayed in its onset by proper diet and exercise just like you would do if you actually had Type 2.
