Im pre-diabetic and don’t do well with dairy, any diet suggestions?
I am a 20 year old female and I just got a call from my doctor saying that if in 6 months my diet and excercise do not get my numbers down I will have to go on medicine for the rest of my life to prevent getting full blown diabetes. I usually exercise atleast 3 times a week but my diet isn’t the best. There are alot of things my stomach won’t take. Like cheese, milk( I am able to cook with a little milk) Pasta ( I think its the consistancy of it) Creamy things like ranch dressing don’t stay down. Can’t eat much beef ( the double cheese burgers from mcdonalds are to much so i do a single and sometimes don’t make it through those either. Eggs I can only do them either boiled or baked into something like cake or brownies. I do not know what kind of diet that leaves me so if any one can help or send me to a website I would greatly appreciate it Oh and please be patient with me I will be posting in a few different sections.
You can try switching to a vegetarian or even fruitarian diet. You just need to maintain a protein intake from eggs, pulses and beans etc. (Avocado is a good source of vegetable protein)
I’m on a low protein, high calorie diet and have been told I’m pre-diabetic. Is there anything I can do?
I’ve been in hospital, because of my metabolic disease plus an infection. When they took my blood sugar when I went in – having eaten nothing all day – it was way too high. They took my blood sugar every 2 hours and it was all over the place, so they did the test for diabetes. I haven’t got it yet, but they say I will. With my diet, the dietitian said that there isn’t a lot I can do, it’s unavoidable. Does anyone know of anything I can do prevent yet another complication? Thank you Thanks for the stars Faith and NO NEED FOR A NAME! Not sure I’d call it an interesting question, but regardless stars make me feel good. Sorry. DO I NEED A NAME! 2blest2B – Thank you! I have a lot of difficulty putting on weight so maybe thyroid. I thought they’d tested for it, but will recheck as everything you said makes sense. Thank you again for the info and the prayer. God bless you. Of course I’ll let you know, one way or the other! You are my sister in Christ and that means an awful lot to me. Just Call Me D – Thanks for the advice. I’ll look into it. Buff – I have Propionic Acidemia.
There is something that often coexists w/ diabetes and is metabolic and is more often missed than found…… Have you had your thyroid tested? You need testing for thyroid ANTIBODIES as well as TSH. TSH ‘norm’ should be .3 – 3 (w/ most feeling best at < 2) but, for diagnosis, would not matter if ANTIBODIES are present. Indicative of Hashimoto’s Autoimmune Thyroiditis (cycles between hyper & hypo at start)…main cause of HypOthyroid & is worse (…OR Graves Disease – HypERthyroid). WARNING: Doctors seem not to want to find/treat thyroid disease. You may have to go to more than one doctor before you get the right tests, interpretation, and treatment. Best wishes.

Please let us know what you find out …. Just ask 'anyone know about —-?' I will watch for it.
What can you do to Avoid being Diabetic when you are Pre Diabetic?
My fastning levels is at 100mg, I already started to Diet Low fat low glucose diet and going to the Gym doing cardio 30-40min and 30min weight training, what else can i do to avoid that Serious disease? oh btw diabetes runs in my family. Im 39yrs old 247lbs Male. ive lost 2 lbs this week already. Yes low Carbs
Pregrunto, Pick up one of the editions of “The New Glucose Revolution.” It was written by doctors, nutritionists and other health care persons Like Germany, Canada and Australia that have Socialized medicine. They get paid to keep you healthy. Their approach is to keep you from getting sick. When I was visiting in Germany we stayed at a home in which the husband was pre diabetic. When I saw him eating ice cream etc I expected he’d die before we left. It seemed that he was almost suicidal in his approach to controlling his blood sugar. I challenged his attitude. He gave me a summary that seemed somewhat logical but certainly not we are taught here in America. His suggestion was that I purchase the above mentioned book if I ever developed a sugar problem. A few years later, i began to have a numbness in my extremities. Test after test came back negative. Boy were the doctors making money our system. On a chance, I bought a diabetic test kit from Walmart and checked myself out. Sure enough, my blood sugar was running slightly high. My daughter, a nurse, suggested I contact a practicing doctor who was from India and practitioner of some slightly unorthodox and up to date practices. That was 12 years ago. I told him I had taken preliminary tests and wanted an A1c to check my three month average. It was mildly high. With this in mind I embarked on a routine suggested in “The New Glucose Revolution” book under his tutelage. I was near 250 lb. The book said to lose about 10% as a starter. The studies broke down the carbs into high reaction, medium reaction and low reaction to blood sugar rises. I learned to eat all the low and medium carbs I wanted to help control my sugar. I didn’t have to cut out the foods I had eaten my whole life. It was a diet I could continue without gagging . I limited my daily intake to 2000 calories. I’m at 220 lbs and my blood sugar is normal and has been for the past 12 years. What can I eat? Ice cream is a low carb food…I can eat it. Snickers candy bars are a low carb food..I can eat it. These are just two things I thought I could never eat again when I found I was pre diabetic. Even some of the high carb list can be incorporated to help break the sugar/insulin cycle. Just make sure to keep the calories under 2000 per day. No, I don’t have to run marathons or swim 30 miles a week to control the sugar. Moderate exercised like gardening a game of golf or just a leisurely walk is enough. The authors of the book take a whole book to explain and back up their results. I can’t do it in a few paragraphs. However you can see and check it out for yourself. My doctor just had me take my tri monthly A1C and it was below 100. This after 12 years of following the guidelines. The children had a sleepover last night. This morning we had frosted doughnuts, cheese and a glass of milk. We ran through the a couple of “Cotton Candy” cycles on the home machine. I’ll send the grand kids back home tomorrow morning and get back into my cycle. My blood sugar will be normal in a a couple of days and I wouldn’t have missed the fun of celebrating with the kids over worries about my sugar. I lost my 25 pounds without dieting per se. I eat whatever I want, when ever I want without guilt. When I go off the schedule I know I can go back on it and not worry about my health. Most Doctors and their appointed dieticians and diabetic nurses will poo poo the idea you can control pre diabetes with diets and exercise. When I mentioned that my A1c averaged 98 the nurse became condescending and said it should have read 6.1 or something not 98. I told her look at my lips, I’ll say it real slowly,so she would understand. The scales can be interpolated just like Fahrenheit and Centigrade thermometers. Just like 212F =100C, the scales of the A1c and daily sticks are tied together. You will find a lot of resistance from our doctors because it’s a lot of money out of their pockets if you can beat the results of becoming a diabetic and need all kinds of office visits, amputations and other related illnesses. What do you think they are going to push?
