Q: 

I would like a simple diabetic diet plan to follow for a couple of weeks so that I can get into the routine. I know there is one that exsists...

A: Dear fairygodmother, Your best bet is to make an appointment with a Registered dietitian. You don''t say enough about your background and activity level to properly order the amount of calories you should be eating. I often have nurses provide a temporary handout to newly diagnosed people with type 2 diabetes until they can be scheduled to see me. I tell them to avoid the obviously high sugar foods, desserts, candy, regular soda, etc. I advise them to include plenty of salads and low calorie vegetables in their meals. I suggest they keep their meat portions to about 3-4 oz per meal and to not fry or bread the items. I emphasize eating more white meats such as fish and poulty or soy protein sources. If the person is a big eater of meat and...


Q: 

Diabetics diet plan

A: My husband most certainly is not allowed to eat any sugar. He will get whipped if he does. :) Just kidding. But seriously if you have diabetes then avoiding sugar at all costs is essential. If you eat sugar then you are likely to cause some damage to yourself. High levels of blood sugar can even cause death in some cases so don''t take any risks. But if you are not suffering from very high levels then you might be allowed to take little bit of sugar. Consult your doctor to confirm. You can use one of the many sugar substitutes that are available. Not at all. Sugar is 1st enemy for diabetes, the body normally coverts all kind of sugar to glucose. As blood glucose raise, the pancreas secrete the hormones insulin to carry glucose to body to...

Q: 

i have been on a strict diabetic diet for 3 months. why have i not lost any weight.

A: Hello vjvj5990 Weigh is a result of intake and output. There is no secret about it. The calories eaten and the calories burned determine whether you will gain weigh, lose weight or stay the same weight. I applaude your loss of 30 lbs. I wish I knew what your BMI or what your waist circumference is. If you are still attempting to lose weight and the doctor feels you are not at a healthy weight, then try to increase your activity level or try to trim some calories from your diet or both. Are you walking or doing any aerobic exercise? 30 minutes 5 times a week is recommended. If you have achieved this, but stopped losing weight, just add a few extra minutes each day. Be sure you ask to your doctor about exercise and a healthy weight for you!! We have great recipes on...


Q:

A: Hello,     Sorry for my late reply.               Many maturity onset diabetics (M.O.D - Type 2 diabetes - Non Insulin Dependant diabetes Mellitus) are obese.

Insulin resistance is a pervasive feature of obesity. Insulin resistance is more strongly linked to intra ? abdominal fat then to fat in fat...

Q: 

I have diabetes type ll and take oral medications. I also have IBS so the required foods for my diabetic diet conflict s.ie:fruits/veggies mainly

A: Thanks for writing dLife. Your question is a very good one and this is a good example of how diabetes does not happen in a vacuum- people with diabetes can also have other medical conditions at the same time and one diet is not right for everyone. Certainly a diet that aggravates your IBS will not be sustainable or desirable no matter if it is one that in theory is right for diabetes. Your medication also may need adjusting if low blood sugar episodes occur on a regular basis. Do be sure to meet with a registered dietitian again- perhaps a different one- who is open to listening to your food preferences and tolerances, eating patterns, weight...
