Quinoa And Type 2 Diabetes: Is It A Yes Or No Food?

We've recently had a number of similar questions, for example: “Is quinoa a no no for type 2 diabetes or is it okay? I know that technically it is a seed not a grain, so I was wondering where you stand with that.” It's true, quinoa is technically a seed but there is a lot more to this little seed than meets the eye. If you want to lower (or maintain) your blood sugar and A1C levels, we generally don't recommend you eat quinoa and here's why… What is Quinoa? Often claimed as a “superfood,” you see this stuff everywhere in magazines and health food stores. But what is it? Quinoa is often referred to as an “ancient grain” but the part of quinoa that we eat is actually the seed of the goosefoot plant. This plant is native to regions in South America. When cooked, the seeds become soft and are often used as a more nutritious alternative to white rice or wheat pasta. Quinoa is more nutritionally dense than a lot of grains, plus it is a gluten-free product, which has quickly made quinoa become such an “ideal food” for healthy eating. However, while quinoa is a fairly nutritious choice for a healthy person, for diabetics there is more to the story… Quinoa Nutrition Fact Continue reading >>

Kids get at least a third of their calories from snacks. You want to make sure you choose healthy snacks that are nutrient rich. Megan Robinson, a registered dietitian at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, compares snacks and explains which ones are the best.

Diabetes-friendly Snacking Options

Today’s Dietitian Vol. 12 No. 9 P. 12 Grabbing a quick bite between meals isn’t off-limits for people with diabetes. “Snacking can really contribute to a healthy diet. It ensures that our body gets the fuel that it needs regularly throughout the day—and that’s true for everybody, diabetes or not,” says Beverley Manganelli, RD, BS, CDE, manager of community nutrition services at Hunterdon Medical Center in Flemington, N.J. “What’s different for someone with diabetes is, obviously, what kind of medications they’re on and their blood sugar control. Snacking can definitely impact that, so you need to pay a little more attention to the things that you choose. Although there are no ‘never’ foods, you do want to get a nutritious bang for your buck.” Because carbohydrate is the nutrient that impacts blood sugar the most, monitoring intake is crucial. “Generally, snacks can be between 15 and 30 g [of carbohydrate], but that’s based on individual needs and what that patient works out with their registered dietitian,” says Manganelli. Caloric intake needs to be addressed as well, especially since many people with type 2 diabetes need to lose weight. However, a pa Continue reading >>

    I recently had a physical and since diabetes runs in my family they ran a A1C on me. I think 6 was the cut off for being normal and mine came right in at 5.9, is this something to be worried about??

  2. katolb90

    Ditto this question. I had an A1C value of 6.2. I have never had a fasting glucose over 100. Should I be concerned? What is the official test for diabetes? I do have some episodes of excessive hunger, but not necessarily daily. I urinate often, but I have had that problem for years so its hard for me to tell if it is worse now. My hand gets numb at night, but only on one side and my doctor attributed it to a disc problem in my neck (this is before the A1C test). I haven't lost any weight. I have had episodes of what I think is hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) where I have a sensation of pounding in my chest (usually after I eat a heavy meal or have a drink). What should I do next?

  3. SamQKitty

    ][/FONT]According to the Joslin Diabetes Center, the goals for no-diabetics are as follows:
    Before breakfast (fasting) 100 or less
    Before lunch, dinner and snack: less than 110
    Two hours after a meal: Less than 140
    Bedtime: Less than 120
    A1c: Less than 6.0

Can I Eat Sushi If I Have Diabetes?

Wildly popular sushi may not be the healthiest option for people with diabetes. Those beautifully-arranged combinations of fish (raw and cooked), sticky rice and seaweed can have surprisingly-high carb counts. Here's how to have your sushi and eat it, too. When you think about sushi, you might picture nigiri, slices of raw salmon, tuna, or mackerel, resting on beds of pressed and seasoned white rice, wrapped in a band of seaweed, and arranged in look-alike rows on a white plate in a Japanese restaurant or in a black plastic tray at the supermarket, garnished with plastic grass, a ball of wasabi paste, and a rosebud of pickled ginger. Or maybe you picture maki, the traditional rice, seaweed, and fish combination, rolled together into a log and sliced into bite-size rounds. While both count as sushi, neither dish completely or even accurately defines the word. What is Sushi? The word sushi is not synonymous with raw fish, but rather with the seasoned vinegar—typically, rice wine vinegar flavored with a little salt and sugar—used to flavor any number of ingredients rolled into or sitting beside or atop a sticky mass of similarly flavored starchy, medium-grain white rice. Though co Continue reading >>

    Pounds lost: 18.0







    For normal folks, the blood sugar level rises rapidly after eating and peaks in about 30 minutes, then decreases gradually back to normal fasting levels (less than 100) within 2 hours. This is the reason for the testing at 2 hours after eating.
    For folks with diabetes, the peak can be much higher than normal and the length of time for the bs level to decrease back to fasting levels can be much longer. Also if your fasting level is higher than normal -- your peak will tend to be higher and it will take longer to decrease.
    What you are attempting to measure is how close to normal you are -- that is, how much under control your diabetes is. You are close, but still need to work on it.
