Type 1 Diabetes Diet

Type 1 diabetes diet definition and facts In Type 1 diabetes the pancreas can do longer release insulin. The high blood sugar that results can lead to complications such as kidney, nerve, and eye damage, and cardiovascular disease. Glycemic index and glycemic load are scientific terms used to measure he impact of a food on blood sugar. Foods with low glycemic load (index) raise blood sugar modestly, and thus are better choices for people with diabetes. Meal timing is very important for people with type 1 diabetes. Meals must match insulin doses. Eating meals with a low glycemic load (index) makes meal timing easier. Low glycemic load meals raise blood sugar slowly and steadily, leaving plenty of time for the body (or the injected insulin dose) to respond. Skipping a meal or eating late puts a person at risk for low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Foods to eat for a type 1 diabetic diet include complex carbohydrates such as brown rice, whole wheat, quinoa, oatmeal, fruits, vegetables, beans, and lentils. Foods to avoid for a type 1 diabetes diet include sodas (both diet and regular), simple carbohydrates - processed/refined sugars (white bread, pastries, chips, cookies, pastas), trans f Continue reading >>

    Low A1c & heart attacks

    My last A1c was 5.1 and the doctor said it was too low. She wants me to keep it between 6 and 6.5. She says a new study shows increased risk of heart attacks for people with A1c below 6. Has anyone else heard of this? The reference she made was to the Accord Study. I could not find a great deal of information about this study, only some vague references.

    That study was a big topic around the boards a few months ago.
    Personally, I don't think 5.1 is too low, especially for a Type 2 diabetic who is porbably achieving it without too many lows. If it is a 5.1 because of a lot of times in hypoglycemic ranges - then yes, it is too low.

That's gotta be tough on non-diabetics, who's A1c's will be under 6.
