14 Foods That Could Change A Diabetic's Life

Print Font: When you think of managing blood sugar, odds are you obsess over everything you can't have. While it's certainly important to limit no-no ingredients (like white, refined breads and pastas and fried, fatty, processed foods), it's just as crucial to pay attention to what you should eat. We suggest you start here. Numerous nutrition and diabetes experts singled out these power foods because 1) they're packed with the 4 healthy nutrients (fiber, omega-3s, calcium, and vitamin D) that make up Prevention's Diabetes DTOUR Diet, and 2) they're exceptionally versatile, so you can use them in recipes, as add-ons to meals, or stand-alone snacks. 1. Beans Beans have more to boast about than being high in fiber (plant compounds that help you feel full, steady blood sugar, and even lower cholesterol; a half cup of black beans delivers more than 7 grams). They're a not-too-shabby source of calcium, a mineral that research shows can help burn body fat. In ½ cup of white beans, you'll get almost 100 mg of calcium—about 10% of your daily intake.

    So yesterday i forgot to take my Lantus shot which i take at night. Of course i woke up with a high BG (255), and i stayed high most of the day (although i took a couple extra units of novorapid). 40 minutes before lunch i finally came back to normal, i was 118. My BG before lunch was 77 =]
    i was wondering if anyone has ever forgotten to take his/her lantus shot before?
    what did u do to get your BGs back to normal?

    Thanks
    The lousy and careless diabetic, Sarah

    Hey..hey..hey...don't be so hard on yourself. I used to hate that night time insulin (Levemir)...I'd fall asleep w/o taking it on more than one night. Most of the time I'd wake up and take it...not always though. You did the correct thing...proably the only thing that you could do. The important thing is that you got your numbers back in line reasonably soon.

    that's why I take my Lantus when I wake up , at 7 in the morning. Sarah, was it too late to inject less of Levemir when you woke up?
