The Prediabetes Diet Everyone Should Follow

Skip the sugary sodas and processed food, and opt for whole foods like fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, low-fat dairy, and healthy fats like olive oil and avocado, Experts believe the number of people living with diabetes will rise dramatically over the next 40 years. If current trends continue, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as many as one in three adults could have the disease by 2050. And about 79 million American adults now have prediabetes, a condition marked by above-normal blood sugar levels that aren't high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. If there's a silver lining to these alarming statistics, it's that there's plenty you can do to prevent the disease or slow the progression, including eating a balanced diet. Everyone can benefit from a healthy eating plan aimed at containing prediabetes, regardless of whether you're at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes, says Barbara Borcik, RD, a certified diabetes eductor at the Diabetes & Nutrition Center at Northwest Hospital in Randallstown, Md. 7 Golden Rules of Healthy Eating Here are seven sound diet principles that can keep your blood sugars from creeping upward Continue reading >>

    I recently have discovered I have a gluten intolerance after suffering for many years and been mis-diagnosed with other ailments. I have been gluten free for about 6 months now. After a colonoscopy was told I have developed diverticula, but have not actually had any problems with that (not yet). This week I had an acute pancreatitis attack. A CT scan showed an enlarged pancrease. Can the pancreatitis and the diverticula be related to my gluten-free diet? I did not have these before. Now, I've been told to eat a high carbohydrate diet for my pancrease while staying on a seed and nut free diet for the diverticula. How can I manage this high carb diet while managing a gluten free diet? I though that gluten foods are carb foods. What choices do I have left? I'm confused!!

    Gluten FREE baked goods (bread, buns, pizza crusts, cookies, cakes, bagels, etc) are HIGH carb foods---- so are potatoes and rice, ice cream, etc. You will have NO trouble finding HIGH carb foods. They are everywhere !

    I JUST read something about this....and now I can't remember where. I think it was in the GIG Quarterly magazine (put out by the Gluten Intolerance Group). I don't know if you can call them (or go to their website, www.gluten.net, and request a copy). I have a yearly membership, so I got it in the mail.
    Anyway, if you are eating gluten-free pancakes, cake, cookies, bread, etc, you are probably getting a very high carb diet!
