For diabetics, a low carb flour is best Saba. Hi jedha, I visited my doctor a week ago for my type 2 diabetes. My A1c went up. I eat oatmeal every morning, which is probably the culprit. What about steel oats cereal? Are the better to lower my A1c? Carbohydrates are the nutrient that influences blood sugar and A1C the most Sherrie, so you need to monitor your intake and identify the problem foods.
Oatmeal could definitely be one of them. Read this info over here on oatmeal. As for steel cut oats, no, they will not be any better. They had a very similar carb content.

I was pounds and blood sugar was I started eating the paleo diet, eating only meat,fish,nuts,coconut milk low fat and vetables non starchey. Also no grains or dairy for me and walking every day.
Never took meds or went to a doctor. Now I lost 20 pounds, blood sugar is to , feel great weight Now I think some people can eat brown rice, oatmeal, grains they cook themselves. Thought I would share this if it helps someone. Here at Diabetes Meal Plans we virtually use a paleo diet. Our philosophy is based on a natural whole foods approach to lowering blood sugar because it works. However, making low carb bread is fine and choosing a bread is easier for some to manage, too.
Also, people have been processing food from wholefood ingredients for years, including making bread, without getting sick. There are a ton of additives and chemicals in food and it really is a disgrace. Good for you, but be careful, are still pre-diabetic numbers.

Contrary to some statements, sadly once you have the disease, it is NOT Reversible by diet or medicine, you just maintain it at a normal level. But while it is not reversible from a diagnostic standpoint, it IS reversible from a physiological standpoint.
People can reverse every single symptom, eliminate medication and live a normal life. Since diabetes is a hormonal and physiological condition, the disease is not cured but reversed. Buy coconut flour you can also order it on line. I make bread with it but simple coconut flour pancakes taste like bread. I mix coconut flour, egg,nutmeg, or cinnamon, you can add milk,and they taste like bread. Can have one three times a day with vetables and protein.
Keep blood pressure and blood sugar level low for me. Hi Jedha, I was diagnosed with type 2 a couple of years ago. My A1C had a high of 9. I am now down to 9. I have started to exercise and have lost pounds. My question is there are days that I eat very healthy, oat meal for breakfast with a tablespoon of brown sugar, lunch I will have a salad bar and for dinner a hamburger patty with green beans and cottage cheese. When I do eat a sandwich it is with pumpernickel bread, I have even changed my diet to having very little salt, no soda not even diet.
My God I have even started eating fish and turkey which neither is my choice. I am knocking on 60 and I want to lower all of my levels. Oatmeal and brown sugar all carbs!! Pumpernickel bread high in carbs. Try swapping out high carb foods for more fiber rich vegetables. Also, what about stress and sleep?
Those can influence levels too. So oatmeal for breakfast is not good for t2 diabetics? What do you recommend then? Oats and most other grains are high in carbs and can make it a struggle to regulate blood sugar levels.
We have some info on oatmeal here Elle. And a few breakfast ideas here. I have been told rye bread and sourdough is OK for pre diabetes.
My A1C is 6. I am finding it difficult to find something on how many carbs are recommended. Hi Carolyn, All the info on bread is laid out for you above.
You might find this post on how to lower blood sugar interesting, and this one on carbs. Plus I love bread with a runny over easy egg on top, smeared with grass fed butter in the morning — the best!! I am reversing my type 2 diabetes by cutting carbs — you can do it to!! This site is great for people who have been told so much bad science and misinformation probably from their doctor!!
The insulin is the cause of the disease!! Lower your carbs drastically and you will be healed naturally!! I tried for my 15 years old orange juice for breakfast in the morning instead of milk. Stopped giving her rice only one time she was taking for lunch and put her on brown kaboos.
To my surprise today she said she even stopped taking her regular meds for the past two days. I was little worried so checked her fasting sugar and found it is in the morning. All this within 3 days.
She takes insulin at night 15 units. I need to check on that as well. I have noticed brown bread never elavated her sugar levels. It may also be a good idea to consult with her doctor or health care team about the meds and insulin. You should discuss the dietary changes and share her blood glucose results in case they need to make any changes.
I messaged her doc last night about her meds and insulin because last evening her sugar was that is because I had told her to have rice for lunch and see how her sugar was rising. After her workout, before dinner at 8. Can someone believe this! Her doctor said avoid rice completely and continue only with night time 15 units Lantus. Today her sugar was before breakfast. I got the trick now. We will keep a close watch on her sugar levels and perhaps stop lantus if required. Clara I am prediabetic and have been monitoring how exercise affects my blood sugar levels.
I have seen my blood sugar drop dramatically after a workout, but in the next hour it can rise again and stay there for awhile. You might consider checking her levels on each hour for the next several hours and make sure it stays down. Corn seems to raise mine and keep the level up, so I avoid it. Never drink OJ if diabetic! Like drinking pure sugar, It will blow up your blood sugar. Agree, any sugary drink, even homemade juice is just like a fuel injection of sugar. On the East coast.
The white has 6 grams net carbs and 6 grams of fiber only 40 cals. The wheat is the same but 7 grams of fiber. It taste good and is filling. Is this a good bread?
And even whole wheat has a higher GI and spikes many people. The question is, how does it influence you Pam? That is the only real measure of truth. Also, what are the total carbs Pam? Your calculations seem a little odd. Can some one please tell me which brand of ready made bread is most suitable for type 2 diabetes, I am currently unsure which to buy making life some what difficult. There is a whole list there Mr J w bucklow, is there one that stands out to you?
Here in the U. It has 7g of carbs and is very tasty! I had a doctor who never did blood work after I refused to continue taking Lipitor or Crestor because of extreme side effects even when I was in the office for another issue.
Dumb me never insisted either; Mrs. One day last February, I went to him because of a four day digestive upset. No bacteria or parasites showed up but my fasting blood sugar was He sent me for more tests. My A1c was 7. He did not provide me with a glucose meter. I struck out on my own and attended a single session class given by a hospital dietitian. She provided me with a meter and taught carb-counting. She did not want me to test more than once a day which is all Medicare will allow if one is not on medication or insulin.
I bought an OTC meter with affordable strips but there was a wide variation in readings. She chastised me for doing that.
Next I took a county health department six-week broad spectrum class. They too discouraged more testing. In meal planning exercises they pushed for 60gs. I have a new doctor that I have seen once. My A1c has gone from 7. Even though I told her the micro-albumin test was done with what I feel was a used container and may have been contaminated, I will not be able to have it checked again until December. After much reading, I have chosen on my own to go much lower carb.
Finding your site has helped me a lot to feel that I am on the right track finally. I have always avoided artificial sweeteners as much as possible and yet that is what they push. I was not a candy and dessert gal but because of the cholesterol issue I did eat pasta and bread and drank milk.
Look where that got me. I try to be under but am usually to say I have now found a generic strip for my One Touch Mini meter so I can test more often. I think that helps me to stay focused. It proves these test strips via Rx are grossly overpriced. If they want people to be healthier, why is it so hard to get more testing.
Thank God for Amazon! Micro-albumin can be high for other reasons than high blood glucose and usually a variety of tests to measure Glomerular Filtration Rate GFR , which shows you how well the kidneys are working. Have uyou got our free blood sugar chart? I look forward to hearing about your results.
Ann, your story caught my attention. I have the Verio machine as well. Hi Jeff, thanks for your rant. Hi Jedha, thank you for replying to Jeff. I wanted to reply but you did it spot on!
Please forgive the caps at the beginning of each word, not sure why my tablet is doing that. My dad was a diabetic. He had to take insulin every day. In the end it was his heart that gave out and he passed at the age of 63 when I was very young. My worry is that I am him.
