How Does Protein Affect Blood Sugar In Diabetics?

Approximately one out of every 10 people in the U.S. has diabetes, a disease that affects how the body uses sugar, also known as glucose. Careful blood glucose control is essential to manage this condition and reduce the risk of complications such as nerve damage, blindness and heart disease. Adding more protein-rich foods to your diet -- and few carbohydrates and fats -- may help balance blood glucose levels. Video of the Day Improved Blood Glucose Balance A 2003 study published in the "American Journal of Clinical Nutrition" concluded that a high-protein diet helped lower blood glucose levels after eating and improved overall blood glucose control in people with Type 2 diabetes. Test individuals on the high-protein diet had a ratio of protein to carbohydrates to fat of 30:40:30, compared to 15:55:30 for the control group. Both groups consumed the diet for five weeks. Despite the positive results from this research, longer studies are needed to gauge the long-term effects and any possible adverse effects of a high-protein diet on diabetics. Direct Effects of Protein Many protein-rich foods contain minimal or no carbohydrates and only have a small effect on blood sugar levels. Thes Continue reading >>

    In January this year I had my fasting blood glucose checked, and after 16 hours of fasting it was at 113. This was the same number from a year earlier when I had it checked. So, even though I had been eating primally since August 2009, and had lost fifty pounds, my fasting blood glucose was still at 113.
    My doctor didn’t even mention it as a concern when she mailed my lab results to me, instead choosing to focus on the cholesterol levels, which I wasn’t even concerned about.
    Since that test, during the entire month of March, I have maintained an average daily intake of 1,138 calories, consisting of an average of 78 grams of fat (62%), 13.6 grams of carbs (4%), and 91 grams of protein (34%). On 2/26/11, I was 202 lbs, and on 3/27/11 I was down to 192 lbs, so I lost ten pounds in one month.
    I felt great during March, and realized that cutting out dairy for the month had really helped me to lose more weight. But, I kept having nagging worries about my blood sugar levels. I felt sure that I could reverse the damage I’d done to my body during the years of obesity and yo-yo dieting by going primal, but even after losing over fifty pounds my body wasn’t healing itself. Having such a high fasting blood glucose level meant that I was prediabetic according to everything I was reading online. Here’s an excellent source of such information: Insulin Resistance and Prediabetes.
    So, I purchased a blood glucose meter a week or so ago in order to get an idea of what my fasting blood glucose levels would be after a month of such tight control. If anyone else is thinking of buying a blood glucose meter, the one I purchased is very simple to use and only costs $7.99. It’s the Bayer’s Contour Blood Glucose Meter.
    My results have been very interesting, to say the least. Every morning, I had a homemade espresso and then drove 15 minutes to work. I then tested my blood glucose at work, so about one hour after getting up in the morning, and after at least 10 hours of fasting. Here are the results:
    Tuesday 3/29: 131
    Wednesday 3/30: 117
    Thursday 3/31: 110
    Friday 4/1: 133
    By yesterday, I was feeling deeply disturbed by these high numbers, so I decided to conduct an experiment that closely mimics the Oral Glucose Tolerance Test that I would get at a doctor’s lab.
    Using 133 as my fasting glucose level, I drank two high sugar drinks (Odwalla Strawberry Mango Banana Smoothie 38g sugar, and Odwalla Mango Tango 44g sugar), so within a five-minute period I consumed 82 grams of sugar.
    I waited one hour and then tested my blood glucose: 191. I waited one more hour and tested again: 116. I waited another hour so a total of 3 hours since consuming all that sugar: 96.
    I am really not sure what to make of the results. I know the fasting levels are consistently too high. I know the one hour level after all that sugar was too high. I also know that the two and three hour levels were too high, but I am bewildered about how my body responded during the interval between one hour and three hours, as the numbers went down fairly quickly. This morning, after a ten hour fast, my blood glucose level was 107.
    After consuming all that sugar yesterday morning, I was absolutely starving after three hours. Hungrier than I have been in recent memory. Had a splitting headache, too. I then ate six dolmades, half a cup of hummus, and eight black olives. I haven’t had dolmades and hummus for a long, long time. For supper, I had a chicken thigh and went to bed. This morning, I weighed 197.6 pounds. Yesterday I weighed 191.6 pounds. So, I gained six pounds overnight.
    I’m glad I have conducted this experiment, even though I am unsure about the results. But, I have drawn the conclusion that while I might not be diabetic, I am definitely pre-diabetic, probably even mildly diabetic. This is the information I have, but I don’t know what I’ve learned:
    · My fasting blood glucose levels are consistently too high.
    · My fasting oral glucose tolerance test shows that my levels over the next 3 hours are far too high.
    · I can gain six pounds overnight.
    My doctor, who I’ve been seeing for the last 13 years, is retiring, so I made an appointment with a new doctor, Ruby Farooqi, MD, for next Tuesday. Her profile suggests that she may be better informed than my previous doctor: “She is also interested in diabetes, hypertension, and management of other chronic diseases.”
    Meanwhile, as you may imagine, I am feeling quite anxious about my health. If anyone wants to comment on my results, I’d appreciate hearing from you.

    DON'T PANIC!
    I've just been reading all about this - go here ... Hyperlipid: Physiological insulin resistance the crux of the matter explained!
    If you want to show how good your system now is you need to carb load for three days in a row around 150 g then do a fasted test, that shows the real picture. Anyway read Peter's post above, and you will worry no more, I hope!

  3. Kelda

    And PS, there are other markers which are much more important as you will read in his blog post. I would say those readings you achieved completely support the fact that you are now working properly :-) and congrats on the weight loss thus far and yes, isn't it amazing how bad sugar makes you feel, hard to imagine how we ever lived on such diets eh!

Protein And Diabetes

Tweet Protein is one of the three main energy providing macronutrients, along with carbohydrate and fat. It helps the body to grow new tissue, therefore helping to build muscle and repair damage to the body. Protein is also a constituent part of each cell of our bodies and makes up approximately a sixth of our body weight. Protein and blood glucose In addition to helping the body grow, protein can also be broken down by the body into glucose and used for energy (a process known as gluconeogenesis). Protein can be broken down into glucose by the body and the effects are more likely to be noticed if you are having meals with less carbohydrate. Protein is broken down into glucose less efficiently than carbohydrate and, as a result, any effects of protein on blood glucose levels tend to occur any where between a few hours and several hours after eating. People with type 1 diabetes, or type 2 diabetes on insulin, may need to bear the effects of protein in mind if having a largely protein based meal. It’s best to learn how your sugar levels react to such meals so that you can judge the right insulin requirements. How much protein should I be eating? The UK Food Standards Agency has a s Continue reading >>

    apple cider/vinegar capsules

    does anyone here take apple cider /vinegar capsules which are supposed to help regular blood glucose?

    ACV is a good digestive aid. I think it is usually 1-2 tsp to 6-8 oz. water. Be sure & rinse after or tooth enamel can take a hit. Some folks make a tonic with the acv, water & sweetener of choice over ice
    The ACV with the "mother" is really good (Braggs is one).
    Never did anything for my b.g., but it is good on a salad or spinach
    Maybe rather than getting capsules, you could get the ACV and it would be something you could use - then you wouldn't have a bottle of capsules to dispose of if it isn't something that works for b.g. (for you).
    Try it & test....some have claimed success.,

Too Much Protein?

Within the diabetes community, it often seems that protein is the forgotten macronutrient — getting less attention than the other two, carbohydrate and fat. Carbohydrate is scrutinized, of course, because of its effect on blood glucose levels, while fat is often viewed as a source of unwanted calories — or, depending on your perspective, as a good source of energy that doesn’t raise your blood glucose level. To the extent that protein gets any attention, it’s generally thought of as a good or neutral dietary component. But a prominent doctor is warning against consuming too much of it. Last week, The New York Times published an opinion piece by Dean Ornish, MD, a clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. Ornish writes that high-protein animal foods such as meat and eggs are responsible for many of the ills plaguing Americans, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, and Type 2 diabetes. He cites a study published last year that found a 400% increase in deaths related to cancer or Type 2 diabetes among participants who got 20% or more of their calories from animal protein. This increased risk of disease and death, he writes, may be due t Continue reading >>

    What is normal for a non-diabetic?

    For fun, I decided to test my non-diabetic boyfriend's blood sugar. He's usually in the low 80s, but tonight I tested him at 54 mg/dL. He had dinner about two hours before I tested him, but his dinner was very small and contained virtually no carbohydrates. I know that non-diabetics can go into the "hypo" range all the time and not necessarily feel any symptoms, but how low is too low? He only complained of being very hungry. He wasn't shaky or dizzy. He did seem a little tired, but it was late. So, I'm just wondering if this number is concerning. He was a 67 mg/dL two days ago.

  2. bluecanary81

    As long as he's not symptomatic, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Mention it at his next doctor's appointment (if he even has a doctor) and they might want to do some fasting labs on him to get a baseline. Even non-diabetics go a little low sometimes, but they are better able to rebound from it from the release of glycogen by the liver.
    I would say too low for a non-diabetic would be symptomatically low.

  3. snusnuMV

    Thanks. I thought so. He was a little cranky, too, but that's typical. I am trying to get him into the doctor for blood work because I suspect his cholesterol is high, and I'll make sure his doctor tests his fasting BG, too.
