  • Kidney diet for diabetics

    I've been reading the book that so many of you have mentioned in your posts, but very worried about limiting protein ( I cave in with hunger with lo protein amounts in a meal, and even more concerned about all those carbs!! I have managed my diabetes with diet and few carbs. Eating pasta, rice , or potatoes is out of the question unless I ignore the large spikes in blood sugar.
    How do those of you with diabetes deal with this?
    Thanx, Sunny

    Sunny I have had no luck finding specific web sites limiting protein and carbs I do eat potatoes ,pasta and breads in small amounts and this still keeps my blood sugar down , my fasting blood glucose in the am runs 107-118 at this tiime,I was on Tradjenta 10 mg daily, and stopped taking it 1 1/2 months ago and have not had any increase in my am blood glucose.corn is my enemy so I avoid it.

      I would love any direction on a renal diabetic diet. I can't find any recipes online where I know what all ingredients are. I have a list of what not to eat that runs a mile long but need some recipes for what I can eat for both diabetes and kidney disease.

        It's a tough thing to try to manage low protein and eat lower carbohydrate. You can eat a higher fat diet, especially if it's unsaturated fats, which will help keep you feeling fuller. Some of the items, like beans and whole grains, can be good for you both as a diabetic and as a renal patient as long as you are not limited on potassium. The fiber in them keep you feeling full without as much protein. You have to keep yourself healthy and eat nutritious foods, even the little amounts of protein.
        How much protein are you taking in per day? You didn't mention what stage you are, and each stage has a little bit different diet. Another thing is that you should possibly try to walk a little after every meal to assist with keeping your blood sugars down if you can. Sometimes simple changes, like eating salads and using beans on them with an oil/vinegar dressing is a good way to get full without the carbs and protein.

          Dear Sunny,
          High carbs are out of the diet for a diabetic. Meat and low potassium vegetables are in. One favorite of mine is to cook cauliflower and make it like mashed potatoes with a little butter and rice Dream (orignal). Wilted lettuce also is a good side dish. Oli e and vinegar are ways to dress up vegetables and salads. Buy a turkey breast and slice it thin, put it in the freezer one-4 slices per bag and take it out during the week to munch on. Another idea is to Gramma13,
          use Sspaghetti squash instead of pasta for your meat sauces. If you have an Oriental store near you, in the cold section they may carry yam noodles that are low in carboydrates. Make a sukiyaki dinner with beef or chicken and v egetables and tofu(avalable in most grocery stores. Hope thi helps you out. I have had diabetes for 52 years and spend my carbs on special things I enjoy. I finally got an insulin pump. It is expensive, but worth every penney. May the good Lord bless you as you learn to deal with kidney disease and diabetes.

            Hi, my kiodneys do not work, they only work at around 22% and I have problems with high potassium and high phosphorous. Do you know where I can get recipes for the kind of diet that I should be following? Thank you.

              Well! A diet chart works when a diabetic follow a planned dietary fiber in his day to day meal.When it comes to type-1 diabetics starchy foods are recommended which can balance sugar fasting .This includes rice, pasta, bread, potatoes etc.

                    Ths is the exact question I have. My mother has rcently been diagnosed and I take care of her so it would really help me if there were some recipes for me to follow, instead of a list of do's and don't's .

                        Hi Sunny - the fact is you will need to limit your protein. However, in regards to eating pastas, rice, and potatoes you will be much better off eating the whole grain pastas. Unlike regular pasta, whole grain pasta has unsaturated fats, fiber, protein, and the healthy B vitamins. Whole wheat also contains the endosperm which are the starchy carbohydrates that give you energy. Regular four is refined and eliminates all the necessary nutrients. The same with rice. Make sure to eat brown rice and for the potatoes try sweet potatoes. They are a little more rich in fiber. I really hope this helps.

                          This is not so much a reply, as it is a question. What happens when you eat too many carbs, does your GFR go lower, and does it stay there? Just in the last 3 months we have been following my renal labs closely as my creatinine had spiked at 2.3. It is now down to 1.7 and seems to be holding steady, but I worry that with my diabetes not being well controlled, that it may start climbing again.

                            can you tell me the book you are reading? I have both Type 2 Diabetes and stage four kidney disease. I am trying to understand how to eat well for both diseases. I am finding it difficult because the two diets contradict each other. For example, you are told to eat whole grains for diabetes and white bread and white rice for the kidney diet. Thanks!
