Patient Education: Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus And Diet (beyond The Basics)

Patient Education: Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus And Diet (beyond The Basics)

TYPE 1 DIABETES OVERVIEW Diet and physical activity are critically important in the management of the ABCs (A1C, Blood pressure, and Cholesterol) of type 1 diabetes. To effectively manage glycated hemoglobin (A1C) and achieve stable blood sugar control, it is important to understand how to balance food intake, physical activity, and insulin. Making healthy food choices every day has both immediate and long-term effects. With education, practice, and assistance from a dietitian and/or a diabetes educator, it is possible to eat well and control diabetes. This topic discusses how to manage diet in people with type 1 diabetes. The role of diet and activity in managing blood pressure and cholesterol is reviewed separately. (See "Patient education: High blood pressure, diet, and weight (Beyond the Basics)" and "Patient education: High cholesterol and lipids (hyperlipidemia) (Beyond the Basics)".) WHY IS DIET IMPORTANT? Many factors affect how well diabetes is controlled. Many of these factors are controlled by the person with diabetes, including how much and what is eaten, how frequently the blood sugar is monitored, physical activity levels, and accuracy and consistency of medication dosing. Even small changes can affect blood sugar control. Eating a consistent amount of food every day and taking medications as directed can greatly improve blood sugar control and decrease the risk of diabetes-related complications, such as coronary artery disease, kidney disease, and nerve damage. In addition, these measures impact weight control. A dietitian can help to create a food plan that is tailored to your medical needs, lifestyle, and personal preferences. TYPE 1 DIABETES AND MEAL TIMING Consistently eating at the same times every day is important for some people, especially those w Continue reading >>

Diabetes is a metabolic disease characterized where the body is unable to regulate blood glucose regulation. Diabetes may be a result of the pancreas not producing insulin (as seen in type 1 diabetes), or the bodys inability to properly use the insulin that is produced (which occurs in type 2 diabetes). In the United States, more than 29 million people have diabetes. Proper diet is essential in maintaining health and energy. Use our simple calculator, and we'll do the math for you! Your BMR is the number of calories your body uses in a given day without any activity. This is basically how many calories you need to stay the same weight while in a coma. Your TDEE is the number of calories your body requires in a given day to maintain the same weight. Your TDEE is your maintenance level. If you eat this many calories every day you will neither gain nor lose weight.

Diabetes may is a result of the pancreas not producing insulin (as found in type 1 diabetes), or the bodys inability to properly use the insulin that is produced(which occurs in type 2 diabetes). In the USA, more than29 million people, or about 9.3 percent of the population, have diabetes and one out of four of those people do not know they have the disease.Most the individuals with type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese. Being overweight or obese makes it harder for the body to utilize insulin produced by the pancreas to shuttle sugar into the bodys cells. In individuals with type 2 diabetes, losing weight helps shrink fat cells, which in turn may enhance the bodys ability to produce and effectively use insulin. Continue reading >>

Should Type 1 Diabetics Eat Carbs With Protein To Build More Muscle?

Should Type 1 Diabetics Eat Carbs With Protein To Build More Muscle?

Quick Summary Glucose and amino acids are both insulinogenic and have the potential to increase blood glucose. When glucose and amino acids are consumed together they require more insulin, than if consumed alone. Adequate medication must be given to accommodate the blood glucose increasing effects of these two macronutrients. Hyperglycaemia is highly detrimental to muscle protein synthesis. Besides focusing on carbs and protein alone, it’s important to see the bigger picture and consider all the other important factors that influence rate of muscle growth, of which there are many. What you’re in for? 600 Words Reading Time ~ 8 minutes SHOULD TYPE 1 DIABETICS EAT CARBS AND PROTEIN TOGETHER IN AN ATTEMPT TO BUILD MORE MUSCLE? Insulin is considered an anabolic (constructive) hormone. When protein is consumed the B-cells of the pancreas secrete insulin to shuttle amino acids into cells for anabolism. Insulin has been shown to play a role in the creation of new proteins across the body as well as inhibiting muscle protein breakdown 1. All the amino acids that make up protein impact insulin secretion differently. Certain amino acids are more potent at stimulating insulin secretion than others, especially leucine 2. This explains why whey protein, one of the richest sources of leucine, increases insulin secretion more than any other protein source 3. And, why the food insulin index considers the insulin requirement for foods as a whole (Inc. protein and fat) rather than just their carbohydrate content 4. The synergistic combo of glucose and amino acids signifies a high energy state (compared to one macro nutrient alone) leading to elevated insulin secretion. This is what promotes anabolism, glycogen storage and synthesis of fat tissue (if excess energy is available). Eatin Continue reading >>

New Diabetes Nutrition Recommendations: Macronutrients And More

New Diabetes Nutrition Recommendations: Macronutrients And More

New Diabetes Nutrition Recommendations: Macronutrients and More Last week I touched upon some of the updated nutrition recommendations that were recently released by the American Diabetes Association. I appreciate all of the comments, and I can understand why guidelines can seem vague and, yes, occasionally frustrating. Its interesting to learn about different viewpoints regarding eating with diabetes, and doing so further affirms, at least for me, that guidelines are just that they serve as a basis or a guide from which to draw upon. But by no means are they a mandate or an ultimatum that tells people exactly what to eat. So, back to some of the highlights of these recommendations. Protein. Guess what? For people with diabetes who dont have kidney disease, theres no ideal amount of protein that helps to improve glycemic control or helps lower the risk for heart disease . Now, several studies have shown that higher protein intakes (28% to 40% of calories) have favorable effects on blood glucose and A1C levels. But different studies have shown otherwise. And some studies have shown improved LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels with a higher protein intake. But again, other studies did not show improvement. When there isnt consistent evidence, its hard to recommend a specific amount. The good news is that people who have kidney disease dont need to follow a very-low-protein diet. Too little protein can lead to malnourishment and doesnt seem to affect the rate of progression of kidney disease. Fat. You might be surprised to hear that no ideal amount of fat exists for people with diabetes. However, the Institute of Medicine suggests a fat intake of between 20% and 35% of calories for the general population. Whats more important is the type of fat that you consume. Monou Continue reading >>

Type 1 Diabetes Nutrition

Type 1 Diabetes Nutrition

If you have type 1 diabetes , it is important to know how manycarbohydratesyou eat at a meal. This information helps you determine how much insulin you should take with your meal to maintain blood sugar (glucose) control. Carbohydrates are the main type of food that raises blood sugar. The starch, fruit and milk groups of the Food Group Pyramid for Diabetes are high in carbs. Foods in the Other Carbohydrates and Combination Food groups are also high in carbs. The vegetable group has a small amount of carbohydrates. The meat and fat groups have few or no carbs. The amount of carbohydrates you eat at each meal will determine how high your blood sugar rises after the meal.The other two major nutrients, protein and fat ,also have an effect on blood glucose levels, though it is not as rapid or great as carbohydrates. Most people with diabetes can control their blood sugar by limiting carbohydrate servings to 2-4 per meal and 1-2 per snack. A delicate balance of carbohydrate intake, insulin, and physical activity is necessary for the best blood sugar (glucose) levels. Eating carbohydrates increases your blood sugar (glucose) level. Exercise tends to decrease it (although not always). If the three factors are not in balance, you can have wide swings in blood sugar (glucose) levels. If you havetype 1 diabetesand take a fixed dose of insulin, thecarbohydratecontent of your meals and snacks should be consistent from day to day. Weight and growth patterns can help determine if a child with type 1 diabetes is getting enough nutrition. Changes in eating habits and more physical activity help improve blood sugar (glucose) control. For children with diabetes, special occasions (like birthdays or Halloween) require additional planning because of the extra sweets. You may allow your ch Continue reading >>

Effects Of Type 1 Diabetes On Cells & Metabolism

Every year in the United States 13,000 children are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, according to KidsHealth, a website published by the nonprofit Nemours Foundation. More than 1 million American children and adults will learn how to deal with the disease every day. Type 1 diabetes is a chronic condition for which there is no cure, but there are significant benefits to following treatment protocols designed to keep the disease under control. Video of the Day Type 1 Diabetes Type 1 diabetes was once called insulin-dependent diabetes or juvenile diabetes. Diabetes is a disease that ultimately affects how the body uses blood sugar. Blood sugar is derived from the food that we eat and is a necessary source of energy used to fuel all of your body functions. If you suffer from type 1 diabetes it is likely that your own immune system attacked and destroyed the cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. Insulin is required for cells to use blood sugar for fuel and energy. Type 1 diabetes cannot be prevented and there is no real way to predict who will get it, but scientists believe that there may be a genetic link in combination with an environmental factor, such as a virus. How Damage is Caused A high amount of blood sugar in the bloodstream is the cause of damage done at the cellular level. When these blood sugar levels rise beyond acceptable levels, the excess sugar can attach to proteins within the blood vessels, altering their normal structure and function. In this way the arterial blood vessels become thicker and less elastic, which makes it more difficult for blood to flow through. This reduction in arterial flow also reduces the amount of oxygen available to the tissues and can cause damage over time. Controlling blood sugar levels is the key factor to reducing the amou Continue reading >>

Original Research Protein And Fat Meal Content Increase Insulin Requirement In Children With Type 1 Diabetes – Role Of Duration Of Diabetes

Original Research Protein And Fat Meal Content Increase Insulin Requirement In Children With Type 1 Diabetes – Role Of Duration Of Diabetes

Highlights • Calculation of mixed meal insulin need in type 1 diabetes children is challenging. • This home-based study demonstrated that for a typical cooked dinner: fat required double the amount of insulin than protein when consumed in a mixed meal. • Fat and protein did not significantly increase post-prandial glucose excursion. • Fat and protein significantly increased the duration of post-prandial hyperglycaemia. • Abstract Hyperglycaemia remains a challenge in type 1 diabetes since current regimes used to determine meal insulin requirements prove to be ineffective. This is particularly problematic for meals containing high amounts of protein and fat. We aimed to determine the post-prandial glycaemic response and total insulin need for mixed meals, using sensor-augmented insulin pumps in children with type 1 diabetes. Twenty-two children with type 1 diabetes, aged 4–17 years on insulin pump therapy completed this home-based, cross-over, randomised controlled trial. Two meals with identical carbohydrate content – one with low fat and protein (LFLP) and one with high fat and protein (HFHP) contents – were consumed using normal insulin boluses. Blood glucose monitoring was done for 10 h post-meal, with correction bolus insulin given two-hourly if required. The HFHP meal required significantly more total insulin (3.48 vs. 2.7 units) as a result of increased post-meal correction insulin requirement (1.2 vs. 0.15 units) spread over a longer duration (6 vs. 3 h). The HFHP meals significantly increased the time spent above target glucose level. Duration of diabetes and total daily insulin use significantly influenced the post-prandial blood glucose response to the two meals. When consuming carbohydrate-based mixed meals, children with type 1 diabetes on in Continue reading >>

As has been supported by a substantial amount of evidence in nondiabetic subjects, ad libitum intake of diets restricted in fat predicts modest weight reduction ( 2 ). A similar result was found by Gerhard et al, but their subjects had type 2 diabetes, a condition that enabled novel application of the hypothesis. Each participant served as his or her own control under a design in which subjects were randomly assigned to a 6-wk diet with either 65% or 45% of energy as carbohydrates, which was followed by a washout period of 6-12 wk ( 1 ). It is important that the additional fat in the low-carbohydrate diet was mostly monounsaturated fat, not saturated fat, and that the high-carbohydrate diet was not adjusted to match the fiber content of the low-carbohydrate diet. Thus, a real-life setting (not that of a metabolic ward) was examined. Because high-carbohydrate diets typically are l Continue reading >>

Macronutrients & Diabetes

Macronutrients & Diabetes

Advanced Nutrition: Macronutrients, Micronutrients, and Metabolism The macronutrients referred to in human diets are the three food groups that provide us with energy, namely: carbohydrates , fat and protein. The three major nutrients are more than simply providers of fuel for our bodies. Fats and protein are both vital for building cells and helping the cells carry out their duties. Each of the macronutrients are versatile allowing the body to break them down into a number of uses. Carbohydrate can be stored as fat and fat and protein can both be converted into glucose for example. Why Carbohydrates Are So Important in Diabetes Counting carbs at meals and snack time is one method used to control blood sugar. Carbohydrates are sugar-based molecules found in fruit, vegetables, whole grains , and dairy products. The make up about 45% to 65% of calories in a healthy diet (the exact percentage is hotly debated); the rest come from fat and protein. Youll find carbohydrates in the healthiest foods you eat, and in the least healthy. Check the food label to find out exactly how much is in your favorite foods. Diabetes Diet: 7 Day Well-Balanced Diabetes Diet Meal Plan At 1600 Calorie Level-Choose Healthy Foods And Understand How Different Foods And The Amounts Affect Your Blood Sugar Choosing the right kind of carbohydrates and spacing them out evenly throughout the day can keep blood sugar from rising too high, too fast (90% of the carbohydrate calories you digest end up as glucose, so they have a much bigger impact on blood sugar than fat or protein). The goal is to take in enough carbohydrates to nourish ourselves, but never so much that it causes high blood sugars, says Linda Sartor, a diabetes nutrition specialist at the Penn Rodebaugh Diabetes Center at the Hospital of th Continue reading >>

Tweet Nutrition is a critical part of diabetes care. Balancing the right amount of carbohydrates, fat, protein along with fibre, vitamins and minerals helps us to maintain a healthy diet and a healthy lifestyle. Getting the balance right can help the body to stay in prime condition, but what is the right balance of nutrients? People have been arguing over the ideal mix for generations and the discussion still rages today. For people with diabetes, there is at least one extra consideration for our nutritional needs and that is the question of how our blood sugar levels will respond to different diets. Macronutrients The macronutrients referred to in human diets are the three food groups that provide us with energy, namely: carbohydrates, fat and protein. The three major nutrients are more than simply providers of fuel for our bodies. Fats and protein are both vital for building cells and helping the cells carry out their duties. Each of the macronutrients are versatile allowing the body to break them down into a number of uses.

Macronutrients And Type 1 Diabetes

Macronutrients And Type 1 Diabetes

The ideal macronutrient composition for optimum glycaemic control is yet to be defined. Carbohydrate causes the majority of variation in glycaemia however it is known that protein and fat also play a significant role. Carbohydrate Carbohydrates are an important source of energy. The term carbohydrate encompasses both starches and sugars. Guidance from the Department of Health in 1991 recommended that we should consume 50% of our daily energy requirements from carbohydrate.[1] In June 2014 the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) released a draft report suggesting that we should continue to advocate this, with people choosing wholegrain varieties where possible (SACN, 2014). [2] The majority of this should come from the starchy form and only a small portion from sugary sources. The brain requires 130g carbohydrate per day but the reference nutrient intake is 260g per day, to allow for daily physical demands.[1] Diabetes UK found that consuming over 50% of daily energy from carbohydrates was not appropriate for everyone. In 2011, their nutritional guidelines were revised to state that there is not an ideal percentage of energy which should come from carbohydrate for optimal blood-glucose control. [3] Prior to the discovery of insulin in 1922, dietary restriction was the only treatment available for Type 1 diabetes mellitus with intakes of less than 10% energy from carbohydrate advocated. In the 1940s and 50s the suggested percentage energy from carbohydrate had risen to 25-30% and exchange lists came into use. Eventually in the 1980s restrictions were lifted with the initiation of carbohydrate counting programmes such as DAFNE. The use of low carbohydrate diets for the treatment of diabetes mellitus is a controversial topic. The term “low carbohydrate diet Continue reading >>
