Hi i had gestational diabetes and the nutritionist gave a list of food ideas. I dont eat like that. What can I do?

Become more active

Diabetes
You will likely have the same problem with each pregnancy, so in between increase your aerobic activity level and loose weight if possible. Meet with the dietitian to discuss your specific dietary concerns - unless you really just want to eat lousy foods there are usually healthy alternatives. Otherwise you;ll have to take pills or use insulin shots

gestational diabetes and the nutritionist gave a list of food ideas for breakfast lunch and dinner. what if i dont like them?

Count carb content

Diabetes
The major goal of gestational diabetes is to control the post-prandial (after-meal) sugar levels. The greatest predictor of the degree of post-prandial glucose rise is the person's carb intake at that meal. So if you don't like the nutritionist's suggestions, you may want to substitute other types of carb intake while maintaining the same total # of carbs. Ask them for other food possibilities.

I'm diabetic with gastritis what's a list of foods I can eat?

Eat Healthy.

Gastritis
No specific foods to avoid. As a diabetic eat a healthy diet with general avoidance of high simple sugar intake. There is no prohibition on any food, but you should use common sense and measure BG to get an idea of which foods are reasonable and which are not. If gastritis is due to medications, treatment is to avoid those meds or add additional protective treatment not avoid foods.

What is the best fast food restraint for a diabetic?

Fast food can be OK

Water
Tips include getting junior burgers, skipping the fries and getting fruit or a salad, drinking water or tea, and walking in to order and eat instead of driving through. Don't fall for the "Value Meals"; they are not good deals nutritionally. Remember you've got a carb/calorie budget to stick to!

Dr. Kathleen Hands answered:

What type of diabetic food is harmful for the kidneys?

Poor glucose control

Calorie
No food is harmful, poor diabetic control is harmful! . A diet of protein and vegetables with low glycemic fruits are best for good control. Deserts and sugar substitutes should be avoided. As a non diabetic, I never eat desert, aside from being unhealthy, there is no nutritional value. A pointless waste of calories other than pure indulgememt discipline necessary for all, not just diabetics
