A question for the dietitians if I may
debs_bears posted:
Not sure if I can ask but I will.

I have been on this board for 7 yrs, I am a type 2 diabetic in remission. My last A1c was 5.4% April this year. I am not on diabetes meds since 2010 and can only walk for exercise, due to many physical disabilities.

Here's my problem:

I had to have an permanent ileostomy done (2013) and I can no longer eat fiber, wheat products, nuts, fruits and veggies. My diet is high protein, low carbs, and little to no fiber. That doesn't leave much to eat without causing ones sugar to go up.

So are there foods I can eat safely to keep my A1c where it is? Thanks for your help in advance. Debbie

Debbie, I know it can become frustrating to have to limit your food choices for medical reasons. Your best source of information will be to ask your doctor for a rerferral to an RD in your area. That way she'll be familiar with your medical history and can help you develop the best food plan for your individual needs. It sounds like you're doing really well overall, and I can give you a lot of credit for wanting to maintain optimum health. ~Lynn @Glucerna

You may find that you will be able to eat some veggies if you cook them longer-yech. However, cooking will break down fiber significantly, so you may be able to eat them. Check with the RN about this.

debs_bears replied to betatoo's response:
Thanks Beta,

Right now I can tolerate very cooked carrots - I do like the raw ones better but I should never eat raw ones again.

I will check into cooked veggies to see which ones I can eat. Debbie
