Diabetes And Soda Pop?
I’m 15 years old and was diagnosed with diabetes just a little while ago. We’re still waiting for my blood work to come back from the lab to see what type I am. Anyway, before I was diagnosed I had a specific routine any time I bought a “Junk Lunch”. I would get a Crush Cream Soda, Original Skittles (the regular package) and a bag of Crunchy Cheesies (not sure of the company or brand). I was not overweight when diagnosed with Diabetes, I was average. (Just saying that I didn’t get it because of weight problems) I am and always have been completely in love with the taste of Crush Cream Soda. Now, suddenly I can’t drink it anymore because where I live I can’t get the diet version. I know that they do make Diet Crush Cream Soda, but I can’t find it anywhere in my province (NL). My meal plan is the hardest part about my chronic disease, I don’t mind having to prick my fingers, or give myself insulin needles, but not being able to have your favorite snack or drink anymore when you’re 15 and always hanging out with friends who buy “Junk Lunches”, pretty much sucks. It’s so hard. Does anyone know where I could possibly order the Diet Crush Cream Soda online, or anywhere I can get it in NL. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I’d really appreciate the help. Thank you :]
Get over it girl. There are so many things you are going to be deprived of that living just don’t seem worth it. At 15 you will have to grow up faster that your counterparts. Sorry to put it this way but This is a deadly disease. Nothing to fool with. 1/3 of type 1 diabetics die before age 55. And Type 2 diabetics lose 10 to 13 years off their lifetime. So forget the sodas theere are a lot more important things to worry about.. TIN
Ok so I flunked my 3 hour glucose tolerance test and I have gestational diabetes?
I’m bummed out but what can one do. My glucose readings were almost 300 after that nasty glucola drink, even 2 hours and 3 hours after I drank the stuff. I have a question, and I’m a nurse so I feel stupid for asking this and my diabetes class is next week, but I deal w/ adults who have like insulin dependent diabetes, not gestational. If I’m supposed to test 2 hours post prandial after meals, what If I have a snack an hour after I eat a meal? Do I then test 2 hours after the snack? One hour? I’m confused about this. Also, can I eat fruit in small amounts here and there or do I need to nix it completely. I really don’t want to go on insulin or glyburide, and am trying to do this diet only. What are some good meal plans or websites?? Thanks
Gestational diabetes is often treated on a case-by-case basis. Some cases can be treated simply by diet modification and exercise, some cases need pills, some insulin injections and monitoring of the fetus. The only person who will be able to answer your questions is your doctor. You should call your OB’s office and ask the nurse what the proper treatment would be for you. Good luck!
Does my diet and exercise regimen sound good?
Okay, just so you know I’m thirteen. But my family has a history of obesity and problems relating to obesity. I don’t want to be over weight, I want to be as fit as I am now. And I don’t want diabetes, or high-blood sugar when I get older, I want to be fit. So don’t say I am too young to be worrying about things like this. Because I think I’m doing this for a good cause. But I have to give up my addiction to sweets and soda and ice cream, don’t I? Here’s what I’m thinking of doing as soon as I get better from this cold: Diet; Breakfast; 1 cup of fruit. A tall glass of water or orange juice. A muffin with a thin spread of butter Snack: A vegetable Lunch; A grilled chicken salad with lots of water. And a cup greek yogurt Snack: A fruit Dinner: Grilled chicken, steak, and rice. I also drink a glass of milk every night because it helps me sleep (P.S. I didn’t add too much to the food because I don’t like to eat too much. I feel sick if I eat too much XP) Exercise plan for the week Monday; Ballet, a mile and walking/running with my dogs. Push ups and crunches/side crunches. Tuesday: A sport like basketball, soccer and walking/running with my dogs. Push ups and crunches/side crunches. Wednesday: A mile and walking/running with my dogs. Push ups and crunches/side crunches. Thursday: A sport and walking/running with my dogs. Push ups and crunches/side crunches. Friday: A mile and walking/running with my dogs. Push ups and crunches/side crunches. I’m open to any suggestments. Did I include all of the food groups in my diet? Do I have to give up sweets, soda and ice cream altogether? Do I have enough exercise? And I won’t stick to the meal plan like that, I’ll mix it up. But thats what I will most likely eat. Also is what I’m eating too little? @Tyson Which exercises should I use? I can’t do anything hard, because I’m still a pre-teen.
Ooooh, someone did her homework! That’s great, girl! Very good plan. I hope you stick to it. I suggest eating lots of watery fruits like watermelon and cucumber. Make your juice as natural as possible. Freshly squeezed orange juice? Watermelon, apple, and honey shake? Avocado yum! Lots of fish will do too! Lowers your bad cholesterol. Stay away from fried fish though. Good luck!
