    Help! I am allergic to nuts (think instant botox) but almost everything I see suggests that snacks on nuts etc is the best way to go when it comes to quick manageable carbs... Not for me it isn't. Any other ideas other than fresh fruit?
  2. Diabetes Diet and Nutrition
    :)As I have diverticulitis (an inflammation of the intestine) I need to eat a high fibre diet. Unfortunately, the same foods that have lots of fibre - deriving from plants - are the same foods that are high in carbohydrate. How do other LCHF people deal with this? Do you generally ignore fibre...

    My wife was diagnosed with type 2 about 2 weeks ago. I always thought that I would beat her to the diagnosis. Alas, my last checkup, (last month) the doctor said I didn't have it. I was really relieved, with my family history (Dad and older sister), I was sure I was screaming down the type 2...

    Would like to know why my Dr. tells me that I will gain weight if I switch to Insulin. I would rather be on Insulin + metformin instead of the Janumet XR 50/1000mg x 2 each morning. He tells me that I will gain weight, is that really true? Will I be able to eat LCHF & keep the 60 lbs I lost...

    Hello, This is my first post here and I was hoping for a little help. Our daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 last year at the age of 5. She is now on a pump and doing great. However my wife and I seem to view the approach on her meal plan differently. I know she can still eat what normal...

    Hi, my screen name is Romance (an anagram of my real name), and I do not have diabetes, though everyone else in my family has type 2 diabetes and high BMI, as well. I believe I’ve avoided it by regular exercise, avoiding sweets (sodas and sweetened drinks especially), portion control, and...

    Hi D-Friends, I'm new to the diabetes forum world, but I read a lot of diabetes sites like Six Until Me, BittersweetDiabetes, and A Sweet Life. Right now I'm having a very hard time sticking to my diet. In the past it hasn't been difficult for me to turn down a cookie or a doughnut, but...

    I have a pump for my T1 and I completely turn it off when I rollerblade but my blood sugar will go from 200 to 60 in 20 minutes. I have an inline half marathon that will take me about 60 minutes to complete. What can I take that is small and will help me keep me from crashing too low during...

    So here it is, 4 months after my first proclamation that I have diabetes under control, and about 5 months since I first received a 128 fasting glucose score from a testing facility. Rather than choose the LCHF diet option, which I felt was too restrictive and not something I could do for very...

    It's been a year since I found this forum and began the journey I am on today. Here's a report of how I'm doing and how I got there. The purpose is to mark a milestone, share with new people who are where I was last year, and to thank the forum members for their valuable, usable information...

    Hi I'm Stefanie. Found out I am Type 1 diabetic 2.5 months ago. I am fairly fit and eat quite healthy so it was a bit of a shocker. Now that my dosages are set and my BG levels are good I feel so grateful I found out out and have another chance to live life with energy again. My biggest...

    Hi, I'm Phil and I am a Type 2 Diabetic. I was diagnosed in 2009 after being told I was Prediabetic in about 2006...which I basically ignored much to my detriment. I had the relatively rare opportunity to start with an A1c of about 13.0 - not the highest I have read about, but still way too...

    I've had type two diabetes for around tweleve years. It's been a roller coaster ride and I'll tell you why. I've been on different medicines before and right now I'm on 2000 mg of Metformin a day and 5 mg of Glispizide per day. When I started to take the Glipizide, I started gaining weight. On...

    How can I go by the exchange list when the nutrition labels for my foods aren't even in the same ball park?
