Shopping List For Diabetics

Control Type 2 Diabetes, Shed Fat Our Shopping List for Diabetics is based on the Pritikin Eating Plan, regarded worldwide as among the healthiest diets on earth. The Pritikin Program has been documented in more than 100 studies in peer-reviewed medical journals to prevent and control many of our nation’s leading killers – heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, metabolic syndrome, and obesity as well as type 2 diabetes. If you’ve recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, pay special attention. Research on newly diagnosed type 2 diabetics coming to the Pritikin Longevity Center illustrate how profoundly beneficial early intervention can be. Scientists from UCLA followed 243 people in the early stages of diabetes (not yet on medications). Within three weeks of coming to Pritikin, their fasting blood sugar (glucose) plummeted on average from 160 to 124. Research has also found that the Pritikin Program reduces fasting insulin by 25 to 40%. Shopping List for Diabetics – More Features Here’s another big plus to our Shopping List for Diabetics.

    Balloon Stomach

    I've been trying so hard to lose weight. 1st they put me on Levemir and I was tired but handling it but I think I gained belly fat. Now they switched me to Humulin N Pen and it feels like I've eaten a turkey dinner all of the time and all kinds of clothes aren't fitting. I'm so tired from the fat. Why do they make a medicine which makes diabetics gain weight. It's ludicris. It completely defeats the battle. I don't know what to do. My system has slowed down and it feels like I have to go to the bathroom all of the time. But nobody cares. All they say is "calories in calories" out -- well, what are you doing chemically to my body????? I'm so frustrated. I was trying so hard to lose weight and instead of going down my stomach has probably doubled in size, I'm just beside myself.

    Judith Ann, the insulin is doing what it is supposed to do -- ushering glucose into your body's cells. How much glucose depends on what your are eating.
    If you eat a lot of carbs, the insulin will usher a LOT of it into your cells.

    Awww, sorry to hear that Judith. I've been there, done that, and am in the process of conquering it.
    You are soooo right about it being ludicris that these dang meds make you gain weight. My Doc had me on Levemir. I gained 20 pounds from that stuff. She kept harping at me to lose the weight and I would need it anymore. It wasn't doing anything for my bg's either.
    She then switched me to Victoza injection pen. It's fairly new here in the US. FDA only aproved it a year and a half ago. My doc & the pharmacist BOTH told me I would see significant weight lose on that as well as my bg's being lower....WRONG! I lost maybe 2 pounds and no change in my bg's.
    I found this website AND I am now seeing an Endochrinologist. From the website I found that I am Carb Sensitive. The dietician told me only what she knows and that is 60 carbs a day or whatever. That happens to be too much for me. My new Endo has me ONLY on 1000mg of Metformin 2x/day. Since I joined here I have lost 5 pounds already AND for the first time in a loooong time my bg's after a meal today was 130! For me that is good.
    You do need some carbs, but not processed carbs. But between the carbs and the Levemir and the Humulin, you will gain weight in your belly.
    Walking and doing an exercise called "The Plank" help get rid of it, but being on certain meds kind of defeats the purpose.
    How long have you been on the medications?
