Yes, a 65 year old diabetic should be able to eat walnuts and almonds. The important thing for a diabetic to watch is the amount of sugar and carbs they take in during the day.
You should keep your carb intake below 23 grams of carbs a day to lose weight. This is a very low amount of carbohydrates.
Because the diabetic is unable to process sugar correctly.
Yes it is recommended. But more than low fat a diabetic person should be concerned about carbs. And the types of carbs are very vital. Taking in carbs which are low in GI index is ideal for diabetic.
Every diabetic is different, something that works for one diabetic may not work for another. Diabetes, as I have learned, is mainly trial and error. Find what works for you and don't let others tell you what you should/shouldn't be eating. Control your diabetes, dont let it control you.
That depends on the diabetic and in particular whether or not they use insulin. Some diabetics can tolerate far fewer carbohydrates than others can. .
Vanilla does not have sugar. And there is no problem about putting vanilla extract in diabetic apple pie. And diabetics can have sugar if they use the proper amount of insulin for the carbs they eat.
Diabetic people can eat anything ... IN MODERATION! You must calculate the amount of carbohydrates in the dish and figure out how much you can eat to maintain your total daily amount of carbs. So long as you keep track of your carbs and don't go over, you can eat just about anything. Of course, if you decide to have a candy bar, there's your total daily carbs right there and you can't have any more for the rest of the day ...
yes but you would have to figure out the carbs online.
Well, cheese has no carbs if eaten in moderation, and carbs are what brings up a diabetic's blood sugar, which is bad. So eating things with no carbs is easy and doesn't require a diabetic to take any extra medicine. while cheese doesn't have any medical advantages for a diabetic, it doesn't bring up their blood sugar. I'm diabetic and i eat cheese very often :)
There are several food that do contain carbs. They have whats called a carb counter to allow individuals to eat carbs but limit the amount. The reason carbs should be limited is they turn to sugar.
A 75-year old women should eat close to 300 carbs per day. This is true as long as she is not diabetic or has any other health issues.?æ
Sure, diabetics may eat whatever they wish, as long as they give themselves the proper amount of insulin to cover for the carbs they ate.
Starbucks does have a diabetic diet menu. Items on their menu list carbs as well as calories. There are food and beverage selections which are in alignment with the diabetic diet menu.
Diabetic friendly foods are low in carbs and fat. They should use a no calorie sugar substitute rather than white or brown sugar. Whole grains are better than white bread or pasta.
Rice is a carbohydrate, like potatoes or bread. The body uses carbs for energy. The problem for diabetics is that carbs are digested into a form of sugar, and the body is not producing insulin to break down that sugar. This can result in blood sugar levels rising to dangerous levels. A diabetic will need to monitor their blood sugar levels, and use medication to control them. They CAN eat carbs, but in moderation, with monitoring.
A. the cereal might (or might not) be the cause of a lower cancer rate.
Every diabetic is different. So I would say start at 45 (if you are female) or 55 (if you are male) carbs per meal for three meals a day. Then it is pretty much trial and error from there, just find what works for you and your diabetes. Test frequently to make sure you are on the right track. Good luck!
Just like people without diabetes your body do not require any carbohydrates. So the answer is 0.
It depends on who you ask. Carbs are what gets your blood sugar up, so the less carbs the less insulin you need. On the other hand do you get more sensitive to insulin if you have a low glycogen depot wich can get your blood sugar dangerously low if you're unattentive. Diabetics need the same nutrition as others, but I would say the Atkins diet is optimal for a diabetic IF you check your blood sugar at least twice a day. Much carbs is a bit safer and less carbs is healtier
Diabetic diet guidelines suggest a diet low in sugar, carbs and fat. Whole grain breads and pastas should be eaten over white bread and regular pasta. No calorie sweeteners can be used in place of sugar.
Diabetics should eat a diet that contains foods from the five basic foods groups or the diabetic food chart, which is a modified version of the food pyramid. In a diabetic diet, carbs and fats are an issue, and choices of "good" carbs and fats is imperative. To this end, food preparation has to be modified somewhat. Butter isn't used in cooking, and oils should be used minimally. Fresh herbs and spices take the place of butter, sugar and salt.
