I never learned metric, it was way after I was out of school, so maybe you are right.

I learned about grams when my grand daughter was born, premature, she weighed 816 grams, which is around 1#12oz I believe.

grams is used on food labels and I learned to check them to help control my diabetes many years ago.  (sorry, if I confused you, not intentional)

Grams although metric measurement, refers to the weight of the nutrient in the food, rather than the food itself.  Like 100g of protein does not mean 100g of meat ...

I think geminisue explained this somewhere else in the forum recently? ... I think that is what they are talking about a few posts back ...  It all sounds like more complex than it really is, truly, ...  it encourages us to keep on searching, learning ...

AMAZONE please take a look at the new thread.. there is so much confusion worth getting the terms straight..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Frosty, I went through all this with my son when he was 12.  He took the 5-hour glucose tolerance test and we whiled away the time reading books we had brought with us and playing board games.  With hypoglycemia the results don't show up until after the third hour (unlike diabetes).  There can be a definite spike in numbers or there can be a slower rise.  My son did have hypoglycemia.  There are so many symptoms that not two people will have the exact same symptoms.  If you have hypoglycemia then you are not having a jolly good time of it in your everyday life!

I learned to read every single label in order to do away with sugar.  If there was to be a sweetener in a high-protein, homemade smoothie I sweetened it with tupelo honey, not any other kind.  The trick is to figure out in your own mind how you can keep your blood sugar level, that's the key.  Little bits of protein throughout the day is a great way to do this.  My son always had a supply of sunflower seeds in his pocket for snacking but since you're a B you will have to carry something else with you for those quick snack times.
We made sure he had some protein before bed, also.

If you are going to have carbohydrates then eat only the complex carbohydrates since they are slower to process in your body and you don't have that spike of "sugar" that you would have with the simple carbohydrate.

If anything else comes to mind later I'll post again but I hope this bit of information is helpful.

Quoted from geminisue
1. Hypo is what you described
   Hyper-means there isn't enough glucose being made by the pancreas to take care of the amount of carbohydrates, one is putting into there body
That should say insulin instead of glucose!

hypo = below
hyper = above

I.e. a hypodermic needle goes below the skin (derma = skin) and a hyperactive kid is too active!

and the grams are not metric in 3 oz iz 100 grams these grams listed for protein are a 'measure' not convertable to weight..

there are other such grams related to foods.. like carbs .. where you have to eat over 60 gr of carbs not to go into ketoes.. but that does not mean metric grams.. either, just a 'measure'..

Hypoglycemia can contribute to diabetes, according to Dr James D:

"Uncontrollable levels of sugar in the body gradually wear down the pancreas, which is constantly forced to produce insulin to neutralize and balance these levels. For most people, the disposition to hypoglycemia was probably carried over from the grandparents, who either had a significantly weakened pancreas or diabetes. Hypoglycemia is a precursor to diabetes, and if not treated will eventually lead to that disease."


From American Heart Association:

>>>
Hyperglycemia and Hypoglycemia

What is hyperglycemia?

Hyperglycemia (hi"per-gli-SE'me-ah) is an increase in plasma glucose (blood sugar). It can turn into a complex medical condition -- diabetic ketoacidosis (ke"to-as"id-O'sis) and coma -- if it's not treated on time and adequately. Hyperglycemia is usually the first sign of diabetes mellitus. Symptoms of hyperglycemia are
polyuria (pol"e-YUR'e-ah) (excess urine)
polydipsia (pol"e-DIP'se-ah) (thirst)
polyphagia (pol"e-FA'je-ah) (excessive hunger)

What is hypoglycemia?

Hypoglycemia (hi"po-gli-SE'me-ah) is a low level of plasma glucose (blood sugar). It's a dangerous condition because glucose is the major source of energy for the brain. Lack of glucose, like lack of oxygen, produces brain damage or even death if the deficit is prolonged. Hypoglycemia can occur after insulin excess and/or inadequate glucose intake, among other causes. These situations are common in people with diabetes who receive too much insulin or who don't eat enough.

Hypoglycemia starts to cause these symptoms when glucose levels fall below 50 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL):

sweating
tremors
anxiety
hunger
dizziness
headache
cloudy vision
confusion
abnormal behavior
convulsions
loss of consciousness

What should you do if hypoglycemia occurs?
If you're suspected of hypoglycemia, you must eat carbohydrates (starches or sugars) immediately.
>>>


In my opinion, it seems that hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia are two sides of the same coin. They both result in stress on the body which can be avoided through adequate nutrition on a consistent basis.

Dr Peter D' the son's ER4YT and his Geno book's is what we are mostly dealing with here, as that is where our experience is coming from.  

I also know other books inside out and they have some info .. BUT NONE have the completeness of info and explanations so we all can more or less comprehend it.. even if none of us are doctors... and non are so designed for conditions giving us protocols to boot.. collectively we save millions here in money, pills and efforts chasing down doctors.. getting tests that are as harmful as is the cure sometimes..

so  for me its BTD/GENO and all else is just noise..

PC,

Looks like you have become a book junkie too.  I love all the D'Adamo books.  Been meaning to stop at B&N and pick up the diabetic book and Seniors new book.  I have been so busy though.  Perhaps today on my way home I will remember to stop.  I need another good read.  If you don't have the Encyclopedia, GET IT.  I love that book.  I have re-read LR4YT several times and the GTD book a couple of times, they keep me inspired and everytime I read them I get more out of them.  As I evolve with the diet, so do the books for me, I better understand it after practicing it for a while.  Like an AH HA moment after the fact.

I have ER4YT and CR4YT also.  I don't usually refer to them for anything as they are out dated and I can get most of the cooking inquiries here off this forum.  


Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude. - Denis Waitley

Quoted Text
DE_nogent:: Hypoglycemia can contribute to diabetes, according to Dr James D:


I think the issues here are confusing...SO I am going to interprete the writing again.. (my opinion-2 cents)

Hyper as someone pointed out is high blood sugar/insulin levels.. .

WHAT we all might agree is that people with diabetes sugar issues have propensity for HYPO... when the levels are out of whack from insulin administration..

Quoted Text
BUT THE IMPORTANT distinction Dr. Peter D. made is that YOU CAN HAVE HYPO EVEN without having signs of diabetes.. and that it is equally dangerous.. as in young people might have it without diabetes ...


What I might argue with here is not which doctor said what.. I find that questionable ethics.. but to choose a doc and then learn all that we can.. mixing metaphors or facts and viewpoints makes this journey complicated and I feel no need to add to the 'confusion'' ..  

In the end all anyone needs to know that Hypoclycemia warrents attention ..

nodoubt147    SO here I saw your picture all this time and thought you where sitting on a piano..

so how many calories do you get to eat??  

I am wondering how they adjust the calories... as teens we can eat so much more, then comes adulthood and some can still eat a lot more than the 40 year old.. so then by 60 the intake is much much smaller.. so why say everyone can have 2000 or so calories?? why are they never told that by age 90 you can only eat minute portions..

I believe this is the cause of my drowsiness and sore scalp in the afternoons/evenings. I never have a second serving of protein during the day or evening unless it is nuts. Sounds like I don't get enough protein, and am maybe eating one serving too much of carbs   ?
