Diet Plans For Hypoglycemia

Hypoglycemia means that you have low blood sugar. People with diabetes often experience low blood sugar levels. Certain medications, excessive alcohol consumption, some critical illnesses and hormone deficiencies can also cause hypoglycemia without diabetes. Reactive hypoglycemia is a condition that causes low blood sugar within a four-hour window after meals. Eating food raises your blood sugar levels, but people who have hypoglycemia make more insulin than is needed when they eat. This excess insulin leads to the drop in their blood sugar level. Hypoglycemia is a lifelong condition, but you can help manage its symptoms through your diet. Follow these rules of thumb: Eat small meals every 3 to 4 hours throughout the day, rather than 3 large meals per day. Avoid foods high in saturated fats or trans fats. Choose foods with a low glycemic index score. Reduce or eliminate processed and refined sugars from your diet. Choose complex carbohydrates over simple carbohydrates. Reduce or eliminate alcoholic drinks, and never mix alcohol with sugar-filled mixers, such as fruit juice. Eat lean protein. Eat foods high in soluble fiber. Here are some ideas for a diet plan for people with hypogl Continue reading >>

    Can you use insulin past 30 days? Are pens more cost efficient? Where to buy insulin?

    I was told to date my insulin vials the first time I use them, and throw them away after 30 days, no matter how much is left. I average 1-2 units of Novalog per meal, so I haven't gone through even half of my first vial, and the first month is almost over. The people at Diabetic Ed said that the insulin will start to break down after that and not be as potent. I'm interested in hearing your responses.
    Also, since pens use smaller containers of insulin, are they more cost efficient? (ie/a vial may cost less per unit, but if I'm throwing half of it away, would a pen be cheaper?)
    And lastly, where do you buy your insulin (mostly those of you without insurance)?

  2. John Galt

    I've used insulin past 30 days before. I've only noticed minor differences in the effectiveness of the dose. That's purely anecdotal though, and I'm not sure that my experience with it is valid for you. I have noticed occasionally that the dose I gave with older insulin was even MORE effective (i.e. caused hypos) than I expected...again, anecdotal and the effect could have been due to many other factors.
    I'd say listen to your doctors, but if you happen to be in a situation where your only option is to use older insulin you probably aren't going to die, but it's not ideal.
    If you can lower your total cost of discarded insulin by switching to a pen, then it sounds like it's worth it to me.
    Don't construe any of this as good advice...I'm not a doctor.

    I'm not an insulin user so this is all acquired and not personal knowledge
    Insulin will begin to break down after 30 days and will be less potent. This may make it work less efficiently or more painful when you inject. You can extend the life of insulin by keeping it refrigerated and just warming it back up when you need to inject so it isn't painful.
    I think pens are more expensive as compared to the same amount of insulin in a vial, however studies have shown that people who use pens end up paying less because pens are more accurate, so they waste less insulin, and easier to use so there are fewer problems with insulin resulting in additional costs.
    I don't buy insulin so I can't answer your last question but I hope that helps!

Suggested Meal Plan For A Hypoglycemia Diet

Hypoglycemia is a condition that occurs when the level of sugar in the blood drops to below 70 milligrams per deciliter. The condition causes weakness, sweating, dizziness, confusion and shakiness, but these symptoms can be avoided by following a diet that keeps blood sugar levels stable throughout the day and by planning healthy meals in advance. Many traditional breakfast foods, like processed cereals, pancakes, bagels, fruit juices and jams, are low in protein and high in carbohydrates. Both of these characteristics can create a sharp rise in the level of sugars in the blood, triggering the symptoms of hypoglycemia within just a few hours after eating. To keep blood sugar levels stable, stick to breakfast meals that include eggs, nuts, cheese, smoked salmon, whole fruits, nut butters, plain yogurt, olive oil and vegetables. For example, indulge in a bowl of plain yogurt topped with fresh berries instead of sugary cereal. Skip toast and jam and instead have steel-cut oats with with sliced strawberries or an omelet with mushrooms and Swiss cheese. Lunch Ideas Carb-rich lunches like sandwiches, burgers and french fries can trigger hypoglycemia. To keep your blood sugar levels on tr Continue reading >>

    Just after some advice please, and I know it's very difficult. I've just had a call from my dad's care home. My dad is 84 and has Alzheimer's but is not diabetic. He has been injected with another patient's insulin by mistake. The carer I spoke to knew that it was 17 units but was not clear if fast acting or background insulin.
    Paramedics are with him and will be taking him into hospital, which is obviously the right thing to do.
    I'm just wondering what the likely outcomes are, if anyone knows? I think I pretty well understand the potential outcome of a novorapid overdose like this, but I'm less sure of how serious it is if it was Lantus. Can anyone help?
    My 6 year old son has type 1 diabetes, diagnosed 6 months ago, which is how come I'm a member of DUK forum.

    The hospital will put him on a glucose drip. I would imagine. Insulin can be dangerous for everyone, diabetic or not, but the important thing is that this mistake was spotted and your dad is getting the care he needs. The paramedics may also have been able to give him immediate treatment to counteract the insulin.
    That's a positive thing.
    Sending you my best wishes and I hope your dad is stabilised very soon. X

    Thank you. Yes, I understand insulin overdose is always dangerous. I feel helpless and I know there's nothing I can do. I'm trying to manage my expectations I think.

I DO NOT ENDORSE THE SUPPLEMENTS ON THE VIDEO, THIS IS NOT A PAID ENDORSEMENT OR A PRODUCT PITCH. THE SUPPLEMENTS IN THIS VIDEO WERE FOR BRANDING FOR THE CHANNEL IN WHICH THE VIDEO WAS CREATED. BONUS VIDEO- Oldie But Goodie! Here are some Cheat Meal Tips! This was originally built for another channel, but now I'm sharing it with you! Http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com As always, I have plenty of other topics on my site, but this is a bit more information for you! I have done a similar video, but this video contains a couple more exclusive tips that weren't on my other cheat meal video :) There are 4 Rules For Cheat Meals in This Video: The Fourth Rule: Since most of the cheat meals is focused around carbs you get to capitalize on that increase in insulin production. You also get to capitalize on the glucose uptake within the muscle. What that means in simple human terms is that the carbohydrates are going to allow the protein to be utilized properly. They're going to help you build a little bit more lean muscle and we all know that a little more lean muscle tissue leads to a lot faster of a metabolism. The other thing that protein is going to do is it's going to help keep you satiated. It does tend to fill you up and it does tend to make it so that you're less apt to eat more of the carbohydrates on your cheat meal. There's a two-fold benefit to adding protein to your cheat meal. The Third Rule I want you to follow when you're having a cheat meal is to have a glass of lemon water about 15 minutes prior to your cheat meal and to sit down when you eat. I know it's kind of a two part tip, but they go hand in hand-in-hand. I want you to drink the lemon water because it's going to help you digest some food that you're probably not used to right now. It's also going to help curb the appetite because that lemon water is going to help stimulate a few gastric juices so that when you do eat it breaks it down and you assimilate it better. Sitting down is going to simply allow you to eat a little bit slower. A lot of us have a tendency when we have a cheat meal to sort of just raid the fridge or raid the pantry which can lead to all kinds of impulse eating which really wasn't fitting into the parameters of your cheat meal to begin with. Drink a little bit of lemon water, sit down, and relax and enjoy your cheat meal. That leads right into rule number two which is eat slowly. Thee number one rule when you have a cheat meal and this is very important. When you have a cheat meal make sure that you orient it around your workout and try to make it your post workout meal if at all possible. The reason is simple. When you're done working out, your insulin sensitivity is high and your body is much more apt to absorb the nutrients that you eat. It's going to withdraw some of the positive nutrients out of that, possibly not-so-healthy cheat meal, and at least give you a little bit more of a benefit that might even allow you to burn some fat in the process. The trick is, when you do your workout, it has to be a resistance training workout and possibly some cardio that's at least 70% of your maximum heart rate. The reason that you do that is you want you body to utilize carbohydrates when you're working out. You see, if you just do traditional cardio, your body isn't really running on carbohydrates, but if you do some resistance training, or maybe a little bit higher intensity cardio, that means that your body has been utilizing carbohydrates for that workout. Which means when you're done with your workout you can get away with a little bit more in the way of a cheat meal. The other reason, and this is the most important reason why you want to workout before you have your cheat meal, is to not stir up old habits. So many of us got in the habit of eating cheat meals or eating junk foods and then sitting around and doing nothing. Honestly, that was how I ended up at 280lbs. I would eat the food like I was working out, but then never workout. The goal here is to start a new pattern and to convince yourself, and train yourself, that if you're going to have that cheat meal you're going to work for it or vice-versa.

Hypoglycemia For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Hypoglycemia is a condition you definitely have to pay attention to, but once you get in the habit of choosing healthy foods and avoiding processed foods that can wreak havoc with your blood sugar levels, you can enjoy a healthy lifestyle without too much thought. Making the transition can lead to cravings for the “old, bad” foods, but you can come up with strategies to deal with those and find that the cravings weaken over time. Foods to Choose if You’re Hypoglycemic You can help manage your hypoglycemia, often referred to as low blood sugar, by choosing foods that improve your condition. You can enjoy a variety of foods, and the foods in the following list are tasty and healthy: Organic meats (grass-fed, if possible), vegetables, and fruits whenever you can High-quality protein (fish, poultry, lean meat, free-range eggs) Fresh fruits, preferably with a meal or half an hour before. Eat blueberries and raspberries often; stone fruits, such as peaches and nectarines, are also good. You may not be able to tolerate fruit initially. If that’s the case, wait several months before trying again. Fresh vegetables, especially dark, leafy greens, lightly cooked or, as much as possibl Continue reading >>

    1 Speaking in terms of relationships, I understand that insulin effects K+. I also understand that with increased insulin production or administration you can have a state of hypokalemia. I just don't understand why, on an intracellular level why and how does insulin production or administration decreased serum K+?
    I appreciate any insight and help!

  2. medicrn16

    Hey Standout...we JUST had a test on this two weeks ago, lol. Hardest dang test I ever took.
    Basically, insulin reduces serum K+ from ECF to ICF mainly because insulin increases the activity of the famous sodium-potassium pump. However, this is only a temporary fix and monitoring for the hypokalemic/hypoglycemic effects would be necessary. You would have to give glucose with the insulin as part of the regimen. It depends on whether the person has an actual total body excess of K+ or the K+ has moved from ICF to ECF as to how well this will work and for how long.
    Causes of movement from ICF to ECF would be tissue damage, acidosis, hyperuricemia, and uncontrolled DM.
    Causes of excess total body K+ would be too much potassium foods, salt substitutes, transfusions of whole blood or PRBCs, and decreased K+ excretion from the kidneys due to K+ sparing diuretics, renal failure, or Addison's disease.
    Hope this helps. For me to pass this test (fluids and electrolytes) I made a chart with similarities/differences. Thank God for this. I escaped the doom of much of the class with a B. Hoo-ray. :wink2:

    potassium levels are decreased by insulin. hypokalemia suppresses insulin release leading to glucose intolerance. this was the best explanation of why it happens that i could find and seems to be tied to atp activity:
    http://www.uhmc.sunysb.edu/internalm...ges/part_d.htm - insulin is the first-line defense against hyperkalemia. a rise in plasma k+ stimulates insulin release by the pancreatic beta cell. insulin, in turn, enhances cellular potassium uptake, returning plasma k+ towards normal. the enhanced cellular uptake of k+ that results from increased insulin levels is thought to be largely due to the ability of insulin to stimulate activity of the sodium potassium atpase located in cell plasma membranes. the insulin induced cellular uptake of potassium is not dependent on the uptake of glucose caused by insulin. insulin deficiency allows a mild rise in plasma k+ chronically and makes the subject liabel to severe hyperkalemia if a potassium load is given. conversely, potassium deficiency may cause decreased insulin release. thus plasma potassium and insulin participate in a feedback control mechanism.
