• Re: Can't lose weight

    Dear Peachpits, It is important that you do not reduce your calories or carbohydrates too low. When you lose weight the body tries to hang onto calories by slowing the metabolism. If you are eating too little this exaggerates things. It may help you to meet with a dietitian who is also a diabetes educator to help you lose weight while getting all the

  • Re: What do i eat now

    Dear jpatrick: First don't beat yourself up about how you were eating; genetics play a large role in type 2 diabetes. Going forward, until you make an appointment with a dietitian, divide your plate in half and cut one of the halves in half again. Fill the complete half with non-starches vegetables, such as salad or broccoli, tomato and spinach

  • Re: does anyone else have cortisol problems rather than diabetes

    Dear Mr. Grossbard Cortisol is an anti-insulin hormone so it has opposite effects from insulin - a high cortisol state will elevate glucose level whereas a low cortisol state can be associated with hypoglycemia.

    Dear Mr. Heaster: Splenda does not cause an increase in blood glucose values. However, the caffeine in tea can have such an effect. You can see if this is the case for you by taking your blood glucose before you drink tea, drinking plain tea with or without Splenda and then checking your glucose levels each hour for two hours post drinking the tea.

  • Re: Cold cereals and BG

    To all you wrote: Everyone's response to different foods is different. Many people find that cold cereals tend to spike glucose values, but this isn't true for everybody.

  • Re: Can Diabetics Drink Coffee

    Dear List Serve: Coffee is an interesting paradox in that the data indicate that coffee consumption may lower the risk of developing diabetes. At the same time coffee can increase blood glucose levels in some people who have diabetes. This doesn't mean that it needs to be excluded from the diet, only that one needs to be aware of the potential and
