What You Can Drink, Besides Water, When You Have Diabetes

No doubt: Water is the perfect drink. It doesn't have calories, sugar, or carbs, and it's as close as a tap. If you're after something tastier, though, you've got options. Some tempting or seemingly healthy drinks aren't great for you, but you can make swaps or easy homemade versions of many of them. These tasty treats can fit into your diabetes diet and still satisfy your cravings. 1. Chocolate Milk This treat may remind you of the school lunchroom, but it’s a good calcium-rich choice for grown-ups as well. Low-fat chocolate milk can be a good post-workout recovery drink. The bad news: Ready-made brands come packed with sugar. Try this at home: Mix 1% milk, 3 teaspoons of cocoa powder, and 2 tablespoons of the zero-calorie sweetener of your choice. It saves you 70 calories, 16 grams of carbs, and 2 grams of fat compared to 1 cup of store-bought, reduced-fat chocolate milk. 2. Sweet Tea A 16-ounce fast-food version might have up to 36 grams of carbs. That’s a lot of sugar, especially when there are carb-free choices, like sugar-free iced tea or iced tea crystals, that are just as satisfying. But you can also easily make your own: Steep tea with your favorite crushed fruit (rasp Continue reading >>

    Hi ladies,
    My name is Mandy, I'm 26 and I am new to the board and was just diagnosed with PCOS. I had been tracking my temps and CM since March and noticed that my cycles lasted from 35-46 days. I also noticed that my luteal phase was only 9 to 10 days long. To make the long story short, when i saw my doctor this month, he ordered me to take blood tests and see how it comes back. Well he told me all the tests were fine except the AMH test and that it was elevated, telling us that I have PCOS. I could not stop crying yesterday when i got the news. I am so sad about this and hope that I can have children.
    My doctor told me to try Clomid 50mg first because I have a period every month, just long cycles. I'm not overweight, I work out almost everyday and I eat healthy so maybe that's why I have not had any symptoms really, except a little acne. I just finished my last Clomid pill last night so now I'm tracking my temps and using OPK's. Fingers crossed I get a positive OPK and get pregnant this month.
    I have read alot of posts of women taking metformin with Clomid... Have any of you gotten pregnant with just Clomid? I'm trying to be positive but I can't stop crying... I just wish I knew that everything would be okay.
    Sorry for the long post

    Hi Mandy!
    Sorry about the recent pcos diagnosis. That is tough news to hear.
    I am a little perplexed because I had thought the AHM test was usually used as a predictor of egg reserve? It can be elevated in women with pcos, but that alone shouldn't give a pcos diagnosis, if I am correct. PCOS usually shows high LH, string of pearls on ovaries as seen via ultrasound, high prolactin levels, high insulin, high testosterone - usually one of those.
    Clomid can and does work alone for women with pcos, though for thin women with pcos it seems to not be as effective. I ovulated before while on it, but didn't conceive and carry to term. That doesn't mean it won't work for you though. Lots of women have great success with it. Clomid is often given for unspecified infertility as well. So in short, yes it can work for you! Are you seeing just a regular obgyn? I would perhaps second guess the pcos diagnosis if all you have is elevated AHM. I guess I would be curious about diminished ovarian reserved. I'm sorry, I am not trying to make you feel worse. I hope the clomid does work for you and hopefully someone else here will have more information they can tell you to help you out. Hang in there!

    I'm so sorry that you're going through this. I'm also curious about the accuracy of your diagnosis. I'm a case of thin PCOS. My cycles range from 29-39 days typically, though have been as long as 6 months. My blood work showed low estrogen and my ultrasound showed polyfollicular ovaries. Add in symptoms and there you go. I don't think I've ever heard of AHM alone being used for PCOS diagnosis? I'd definitely question that.
    To answer your question about Clomid, my third is a Clomid baby. I was on 50mg CDs 5-9 and after 13 cycles our 2nd round of Clomid got me my beautiful baby girl. It can absolutely work without Metformin and it can help thin women as well. I truly hope that it works for you and please don't feel the need to hold in any of the frustrations you feel while on it. Women can feel very abnormal on Clomid (often called the Clomid Crazies) and it helps to talk about it. If you feel fine, that's great, but if not please don't feel alone.
    Good luck!
