Diet Tips For People With Diabetes And Kidney Disease

Diet is one of the most important ways to manage diabetes and kidney disease. If you’ve been diagnosed with kidney disease as a result of diabetes, you’ll need to work with a dietitian to create an eating plan that’s right for you. This plan will help manage your blood glucose levels and reduce the amount of waste and fluid your kidneys have to process. Which nutrients do I need to regulate? Your dietitian will give you nutritional guidelines that tell you how much protein, fat and carbohydrate you can eat, as well as how much potassium, phosphorus and sodium you can have each day. Because your diet needs to be lower in these minerals, you’ll limit or avoid certain foods, while planning your meals. Portion control is also important.

    If not, maybe it was high before drinking the soda? I'm a pre-D and I have been successful at controlling my bg with a low carb diet. I don't normally test my bgs if I have been eating the same foods. But there is no reason to suspect my bg was high prior to the Diet Coke. Emotionally, I was the same as usual. I was in a weekly meeting that always starts at noon and ends at 2:00. I just didn't have time to have lunch this time prior to the meeting. At 1:30 I was feeling hungry so I grabbed a can of Diet Coke provided at the meeting. Sometimes, seeing other people drinking soda gave me the false impression that soda would be ok for me too.

    Maybe I am off here but 30 pts I sneeze at. If it repeats over and over then that is a trend. What you saw was one test, anything could have caused it, meter, nerves, food on finger and so on. I spike to me is 100 pts yup that is what my bg does and has for 36 yrs its been a real blast.

The study sample size is small but if I were in that study, I would be one of those whose bg went up. Aspartame changes the gut bacteria! And my gut bacteria after two months of healthy eating are for sure not used to the aspartame I drank, even in low amounts, not to mention I haven't consumed aspartame for years.
