I was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes and put on Metformin on June 26th, 2019. I started some diabetes diet and followed it 100% for a few weeks and could not get my blood sugar to go below 140. Finally i began to panic and called my doctor, he told me to get used to it. He said I would be on metformin my whole life and eventually insulin. At that point i knew something wasn’t right and began to do a lot of research. Then I found a diabetes website http://www.wellhealthplans.com/diabetestreatmentvideo I read that article from end to end because everything the writer was saying made absolute sense. I started the diet that day and the next morning my blood sugar was down to 100 and now i have a fasting blood sugar between Mid 70’s and the 80’s. My doctor took me off the metformin after just three week of being on this lifestyle change. I have lost over 30 pounds and 6+ inches around my waist in a month. The truth is we can get off the drugs and help myself by trying natural methods
e no real examples of diabetic menu side effects with diabetes right now, except with the damn metformin. Anyone with suggestions?
My meals are low carb, but not super low.. breakfast and lunch 10 carbs or less.. dinner between 20 and 40
All ya need to do is avoid carbs and fruit including candy juices.
The woe works low to no carbs is key to getting better
Thank you I am still learning and I like this group.
Its a combo between sugars nueropathy and the heat. It lessens the healthier ur body becomes
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day………….to skip
Never lose hope, nothing is impossible… We have become too dependent on meds for diabetes, wishing you all the best
Potatoes no, pumpkin yes. No honey. eggs are good. what else can you get?
$300.00 seems extremely high. Where did you get this number? A 2 week sensor at Costco how many grams of carbs per day for diabetes type 2 is $85.00 bringing a monthly total to $170.00.You don’t need to buy the reader either if you have an iPhone or “smart” examples of diabetic menu phone.
I am new in this group. I am diabetic type 2 since 16 years, I am on metformin 850 mg twice a day. I do walk regularly for an hour 6 times a week. My fasting blood sugar is 130 to 165 mg some days 110 mg not same everyday. I am thinking of starting intermittent examples of diabetic menu fasting, so want to know while doing intermittent fasting should I take metformin tablet? Or no. Kindly advise me anyone.
I’m new to all of this. Where should the number be, to be in a healthy range? I’m trying to figure out how high this is for someone with diabetes so that I have an idea.
I see the “cornstarch” cops are out here in full effect lol
Simple Girl Southern Blend has 1 carb per 2 diabetic snack recipes all low-carb tablespoons, no sugar. I think I bought it on Amazon. G Hughes bbq sauce, 2 carbs per 2 tablespoons, no sugar.
I try to vary how I prepare them. Maybe once a week, I eat some other form of protein.Not cereal though!
Is this a choice? Or something that you have been told?
I agree, zero carbs are good. My blood glucose spikes if I have oatmeal etc. Have you tried scrambled egg with salmon? It’s awesome or ham in an omelette? I love eating low carb pancakes with blueberries.
I miss oatmeal examples of diabetic menu very much. Plain, steel cut. I haven’t tried them since diagnosis and I’m a little scared to!
Hate eggs so I don’t eat them . only eggs I like are deviled eggs
There are so many ways to prepare them, that i rarely get bored. But honestly, if you want breakfast with plenty of protein, you can make whatever you want. It doesn’t have to be “breakfast foods”. There have been days i have been in a rush and reheated dinner leftovers for my breakfast. In japan, they often have fish for breakfast.
hey Allision Johnson : many things out there besides eggs for breakfast ! love You !! haha but true more variety out there on breakfast ok friend lol !!
Try Avacado egg salad – chia pudding – 90 second bread with a little sf maple syrup – drizzle scrambled veggies and egg with sf syrup – just have to get creative
I don’t normally eat much at all for breakky, nearly anything spikes
