Are Oranges Ok To Eat With Gd?

I just got a call today I didn't pass my 3 hour test. I meet with the nutritionist and endocrinologist next Wednesday but am going grocery shopping tonight. I tried looking up foods/fruits that are safe to eat, but am more confused than ever. I'm 36, was a size 0-2 pregnancy, and never had an issue when I was pregnant with our son (he's now 19 months). What fruits are ok to eat? TIA Apples (size of tennis ball), two small clementines, peaches...all these would be one serving of carbs. Can pretty much eat any fruit if paired with protein (peanut butter, cottage cheese etc) Citrus gives a lot of us higher readings, as do bananas, and potatoes. It doesn't hurt to experiment and try to balance them with protein, but I hope you are lucky! I miss oranges! Berries! All kinds but especially strawberries. They have nowhere near the effect on your blood sugars that other fruits do. They are they only fruit I've eaten since my diagnosis and I never have any trouble with them. I can eat an entire punnet of strawberries with full fat greek yogurt and a sprinkle of cinnamon and my levels 2 hours later are great. They're delicious too. It's coming into warmer weather in Australia now so the stra Continue reading >>

    I have never had a problem with the granny smith apples. Oranges are another thing. Eating an orange will throw my numbers to high. Because of that, I don't eat them or drink orange juice. There are plenty of fruits I love and apples are among them.
    How did it go with the mandarine oranges?

Can Diabetics Eat Oranges

Lisa Rivera | August 14, 2017 | Fruits for Diabetes | No Comments If our blood sugar levels are out of control, its time to consider our diet as a means of managing our blood sugar levels. You should take a look at the GI. Fruits that come with higher GI are best avoided temporarily while you are trying to regular you blood sugar levels through diet. Oranges are fruit from the citrus family as well as one of the more popular fruits around the world. They can be incorporated into your diet in many ways as long as you dont eat too many even if you have diabetes. Foods that contain carbs include vegetables, fruits , starches etc. Most people with diabetes have to stick to eating no more than 45 to 60 grams of carbs per meal. For people with type 2 diabetes, it is critical to look at what foods are made of so that your blood sugar level can be more easily controlled. But memorizing the exact amount of carbs in all the fruits that we eat would be almost impractical and impossible. The exact amount of carbohydrates that should be eaten will vary depending on a few factors such as goals, metabolic health and physical activity levels. Carbohydrates are every bodys primary source of energy Continue reading >>

Oranges.....good Or Bad ?

Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community Hi, I have taken to eating oranges again, after not eating them for years, after I had gout and doctor advised giving them a miss......are oranges good or bad for someone with type 2, controlled with metformin ?.........Del. Oranges are tropical fruits which are very high in sugar, the only way to see if you are tolerating them is to test your bs before and after eating one which is what I myself am about to do. I can't resist them & they are at their best just now. Beware: oranges bananas, pineapple, grapes magoes, peaches necterines plums etc I don't currentley test myself........what is the best way to do that ? I don't currentley test myself........what is the best way to do that ? Well, first you will need a meter. The most popular one that people here use seems to be the SD Codefree which is available from Home Health online, delivery is free and arrives within a few days. For around 12.99 you get a meter, about five test strips and lancets, (so best to also order strips 6.99 and lancets 5 lancets last ages as you can multiuse. ) all three items come in a z Continue reading >>
