Jeff, I posted something in the parents room. Looks like the stomach bug is elsewhere and high evening BG's are part of the problem. I'll check back here in a bit. BYE

Robyn, what's the most common question you get from peopl with diabetes about meal planning?

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:03:25 Eastern US
Doreen (Type I, dxd 1977, Pumping) from 63.160.17.92
My problem is... I seem to be using the same foods over and over again. Sometimes meal time is somewhat boring... but at least I know what the carbs are going to be!! Hello Everyone :-)

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:04:51 Eastern US
Heidyn (19,dx'98) from 164.106.22.59
Robyn,do you think its necessary for every diabetic to have a certain carb-counting,fat counting system or just to eat healthy?

robyn webb (chat host) from 168.191.22.12
I know that same ol' feeling! Sometimes the familiar is comfortable, but oh so boring. My suggestion is to try at least one new food a month. Try a new fruit you never had before or a new grain. Or another simple way to keep things exciting is to serve the same food in a new way. For instance serve your salads warm instead of cold ( make a dressing and heat it briefly before adding to the salad)or serve food on different plates than you do now.

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:08:25 Eastern US
robyn webb (chat host) from 168.191.22.12
heidyn. Great question. It is one i get everyday!!! I think each person with diabetes faces a different set of challenges. What I htink is most important is maintainig good glucose control. there are many ways to do this. Carb counting is a very good way as you know becasue carbs is what effects our blood glucose the most. If you are counting carbs, chances are you are also eatinghealthy at the same time. Remember, your dietician is the best at helping you to design a food plan that best works with your lifestyle

Hi Robyn. It seems that my teenager craves such high fat food. Suggestions?

Brenda H. (Marissa, 13, dx'd 9/89) from 10.0.1.3
Hi Robyn. I like to make new things sometimes, but I have a problem getting my family to taste something that's a little different (I'm Jeff's wife, by the way). Luckily, our daughter will eat ALMOST anything. She won't eat most types of rice or pizza.
I was wondering if you have tried cooking with Splenda yet? Moms on our listserv have been talking about trying it. At least one said her food item (I don't know what it was) was dry.

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:10:44 Eastern US
Heidyn (19,dx'98) from 164.106.22.59
Hi Amy,if you want to go to another room let me know..

Tigerlily (21yrs) from 129.252.101.42
I was just wondering for anybody who has the pump what you think about it

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:11:36 Eastern US
Sue, CT (Evan 10,dx@7,inhaling; Casey,5, dx@2, pumping) from 205.188.200.156
My problem is that, well, I hate to cook. Like Heidyn, I repeat all the time. I have a very small time to prep meals after work and that time is shared with the kids. Since my son will now eats spaghetti, I have pasta at least 2ce a week and usually fast food on the day's we need to rush to an evening activity. Talk about a rut.

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:12:04 Eastern US
Amy in VA from 207.172.11.147
Tigerlily, for pump info try www.insulin-pumpers.org..I'm on it and love it

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:12:06 Eastern US
robyn webb (chat host) from 168.191.22.12
Cheryl, i think your teenager is like most!!! They all like the high fat foods. first, I would limit them at home as much as you can because chances are as a teen he or she will get them elsewhere. Next is to prepare foods that taste "fattening". Learn to prepare baked french fries, fried chicken 9 the low fat way), creamy puddings and luscious cakes , all the diabetes way!!! Use some of the books from the American Daibetes Associationand I hope you'll look at a few of mine! Take a few cooking classes if you feel you need to ( you are probably a great cook already!)

I use my crockpot a lot.......you can toss everything in in the morning and just about forget it until dinner

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:13:52 Eastern US
robyn webb (chat host) from 168.191.22.12
For Lynn, The maount of carbs for your child should be determined by the dietcian. I would love to give you a pat answer, but there are variables such as weight, activity level, etc. It would be wise to see a dietician at least once for some guidance

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:14:27 Eastern US
Heidyn (19,dx'98) from 164.106.22.59
Well,I have got to go-goodnight and great chat!

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:15:57 Eastern US
BettyB (RD, Tempe, AZ) from 152.163.207.189
Yep, Sue -- how are you doing?

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:15:59 Eastern US
robyn webb (chat host) from 168.191.22.12
for Mandy. This is probably normal. Every day we do different activities, may hold a differetn schedule and so the way our food will work for us will vary. It is great you are keeping a close eye on what happens with the food. Keep track and discuss with your dietician if there is anythingout of the ordinary happening. for now if her blood glucose is kept in tight control, you both are doing a good job!

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:17:35 Eastern US

robyn webb (chat host) from 168.191.22.12
for Brenda. hi there!!! Your are a lucky duck! Most children are terribly picky. There are so many things to eat, I would not worry about her not taking a liking to rice or pizza. yes, I like splenda very much and I think it works great. I would recommend it to anyone looking to create yummy things with a lower carbohydrate count!

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:19:02 Eastern US
Brenda H. (Marissa, 13, dx'd 9/89) from 10.0.1.3
Robyn, how important do you feel it is that we meet with a dietician? How often? Personally, I don't think we have seen one for 3-4 yrs. We didn't care for one particular woman who suggested a calorie count that left Marissa feeling starving and the other one didn't get the word I'd made an appointment with her (via the clinic). Seems she didn't have us on her schedule that day.

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:19:20 Eastern US
Cheryl (Mom of Denise, 14 dx'd X 6 yrs.) from 216.128.25.233
Robyn, Thanks for the advice. I do need to get less lazy and try for some low fat creative cooking. I do cook low fat foods, but they are boring (like stir-fried veggies, pastas, etc) and the teenagers just won't eat them.

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:19:40 Eastern US
mandy (mum of Brooke 9) from 202.167.27.75
her control is not good even though we have tried many differnt things

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:19:51 Eastern US
BettyB (RD, Tempe, AZ) from 152.163.207.189
Mandy, in addition to Robyn's comments, I'd like to add that vriable blood sugars are just part of the game with type 1 -- perfect blood sugars just aren't possible with the tools we've got today -- you do the best you can and keep smilin'!

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:19:51 Eastern US
Brenda H. (Marissa, 13, dx'd 9/89) from 10.0.1.3
How do we calculate the carb count if we use Splenda? Hmmm, not sure I can do it using reg. sugar either. LOL

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:20:07 Eastern US
Sue, CT (Evan 10,dx@7,inhaling; Casey,5, dx@2, pumping) from 205.188.200.156
Doing well, thanks.
I'm finding that I can't fill my 10 year old. He'd eat 24 hours a day if I let him. I've been watching his weight over that last couple of mos. and I'd think he's preparing for one of those growth spurts, but it isn;t coming. His love handles are growing more than I think they should. With his new regimin, he does not have to 'feed' his insulin at bedtime - yet he pitches a fit if I try to take withhold. You'd think I just refused to feed him for a week! Food is so much of an issue with diabetes.

mandy (mum of Brooke 9) from 202.167.27.75
i have actually replaced butter with low fat yoghurt in a mud cake and it was yummy

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:21:39 Eastern US
robyn webb (chat host) from 168.191.22.12
For Sue, I know what a time schedule can bring!!! It is hard and you are not alone! since the kids are with you during prep time, let them help if they don't already now. also try to do ahead as much prep as you can. and I know this sounds funny coming from a cookbook author who would urge you to eat more at home, but sometimes eating out can work too. It allows you more time witht he kids ( very important!). Try a combination of eating and eating out. Use the Restaurant Eating Guide by Hope Warshaw, ADA. Great book as a guide to eating out with diabetes.

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:22:17 Eastern US
Brenda H. (Marissa, 13, dx'd 9/89) from 10.0.1.3
Our bigger problem is that Marissa often comes home from school and eats a ton; it's not always healthy stuff either. Then, at dinner, she eats very little, maybe 40 carbs or less.

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:23:40 Eastern US
Kristy (Drew 7yrs dx @ 3) from 199.174.151.136
Why do kids come home from school so famished? We have that with Drew also..

Cheryl (Mom of Denise, 14 dx'd X 6 yrs.) from 216.128.25.233
Sue, Food was such a big issue for my daughter from ages 10-12. We struggled through it. It seems that things got better when I stopped stressing about how much she was eating. She eventually controlled it on her own.

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:24:05 Eastern US
robyn webb (chat host) from 168.191.22.12
For Brenda. sorry to hear of your unfortunate experience, but I know there are wonderful, caring dieticians out there. I would almost interview a few to see who you feel comfortable with. Yes, meeting with a dietician is important and should be done when you are diagonosed and updated frequently. they are your source for good information on eating plans. Try it again and I wish you best of luck!

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:24:19 Eastern US
Brenda H. (Marissa, 13, dx'd 9/89) from 10.0.1.3
I think most people, esp. those with younger kids, have difficulties with having to say "no" when the child wants a piece of fruit or so and it's not "time" or part of the snack.

BettyB (RD, Tempe, AZ) from 152.163.207.189
Sue, have your read Sweet Kids? There's a lot of stuff in there on dealing with hunger and getting out of the "food police" mode

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:26:13 Eastern US
robyn webb (chat host) from 168.191.22.12
For Sue, Betty B's recommendation is an excellent one. It is hard with chicldren and all the food you need to calculate, but a few resources like Betty's book will be helpful, I know!

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:26:26 Eastern US
BettyB (RD, Tempe, AZ) from 152.163.207.189
Cheryl, hit the nail on the head - less forcing means less resisting

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:26:50 Eastern US
Brenda H. (Marissa, 13, dx'd 9/89) from 10.0.1.3
Hopefully this is my last question: what is the best resource that lists "free foods?" Is there an on-line source of this info?

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:27:32 Eastern US
BettyB (RD, Tempe, AZ) from 152.163.207.189
Thanks, Robyn

Sue, CT (Evan 10,dx@7,inhaling; Casey,5, dx@2, pumping) from 205.188.200.156
Haven't read sweet kids, I will put it on my "get list". Betty, it's your book?
As far as letting him police his intake on his own, we were at a resturant with his grandparents last week and he Literally ate himself sick. I do try to involve him by asking him what he thinks he needs, but he usually says he doesn't care about his BG's - he;d rather have his snax.

robyn webb (chat host) from 168.191.22.12
For Brenda, I have not met your daughter so I am not sure of her habits during the day, but her hunger may be from her meals are not balanced. Also, remember that kids are not always hungry when we are and I know this is hard too. I also would seek counsel from a dietician to help Marissa. A list of free foods is available from the american Diabetes Association. Betty B may also have an online resource for you.

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:30:17 Eastern US
BettyB (RD, Tempe, AZ) from 152.163.207.189
Well, guys, it's dinner time in Arizona and I need to leave the office. Robyn, thanks again for coming to share your expertise. Have a great chat -- and I'll see you guys next week - topic is "Fat Free Foods," but we'll talk about whatever comes up! Ta Ta

lynn (hannah 8,dx'd 3, pumping) from 152.163.204.32
food is a big issue with us also, hannah having celiac disease has made it even more so, how do you not be a food police?

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:31:34 Eastern US
Sue, CT (Evan 10,dx@7,inhaling; Casey,5, dx@2, pumping) from 205.188.200.156
I should be able to.
Thanks Betty.

BettyB (RD, Tempe, AZ) from 152.163.207.189
I'll post a page this week about the "food police" thing -- so go ahead and pick Robyn's brain some more and I'll get something up before next Monday;s chat.. night all.

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:33:49 Eastern US
robyn webb (chat host) from 168.191.22.12
For Lynn: Having to deal with diabetes is tough enogh, it must be more of a challenge for you with both diabetes and celiac too. i do not need to tell you how to raise your children, I am sure you do a fine job. There is a fine line between being the food police and letting them find their way. I think meeting with a dietician should help. Have you been to one recently?

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:35:58 Eastern US
Sue, CT (Evan 10,dx@7,inhaling; Casey,5, dx@2, pumping) from 205.188.200.156
Robyn, is there such thing as a low fat pizza? my son loves pizza but I have never been able to properly dose him for it. (I have a great fear of nighttime lows from too much insulin) He often wakes up high, no doubt from the fat.

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:39:08 Eastern US
lynn from 152.163.204.76
yes we saw one in june at diagnosis of celiac, she just didn't know much about it so she gave me some info and left me to figure it out

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:40:33 Eastern US
robyn webb (chat host) from 168.191.22.12
for sue, I would recommend you can mae a piza with whole wheat flour ( at least half, as the whole wheat has more fiber, thus helps keep blood sugar from surging). Then add a small amount of low fat cheese and ask him what veggies he likes. you can even use some low fat sausage too ( the protein inthe cheese and sausage should help too). tomato is not high in fat and is a good source of vitamin C. then monitor the portion size and see what happens with the blood sugar. you can also make individual pizzas with whole grain english muffins or whole wheat pita bread, but I am sure your son kinda likes the real look of pizza! If you need a recipe I woudl suggest the recipes for pizza in the Snack,nibble and Nosh cookbook from ADA written by Ruth Glick. Awesome recipes!

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:42:29 Eastern US
robyn webb (chat host) from 168.191.22.12
for lynn, sorry to hear of your less than stellar visit. but try again and don't settle until you are satisfied. I am not an expert in celiac otherwise I would help you right here and now. I would also ask Betty Brackenridge on next week's chat room for her advice. But don't settle, your child is numero uno!!!!!

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:42:44 Eastern US
Cheryl (Mom of Denise, 14 dx'd X 6 yrs.) from 216.128.25.233
Robyn, I've read some of your food ideas in Diabetes Forcast. Really looks good. If I would just get organized and try some of the recipies!!

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:45:17 Eastern US
robyn webb (chat host) from 168.191.22.12
Fro cheryl. Thank you for the lovely compliment! If I could reach in and organize it for you I would!!! Take a few of the ideas and place them in a notebook. i also write online at diabetes.org. All of my columns from Forecast also appear there and maybe that would be easy to print out and save. Try one of my ideas each month and then you will have a year's worth of new things to try!

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:46:20 Eastern US
lynn from 152.163.204.76
thanks robyn, i will try again, going to our first support meet next week, will ask there for help

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:49:17 Eastern US
robyn webb (chat host) from 168.191.22.12
Balsamic vinegar is my favorite vinegar of all time. just a splash on salds even without oil make a salad so much more exciting. A good tip about balsamic, buy one that is relatively thick, almost like syrup. It is richer and your foods will just taste divine. the longer balsamic is aged ( like wine) the better it is too.

Mon Oct 2 2000 21:50:16 Eastern US
Sue, CT (Evan 10,dx@7,inhaling; Casey,5, dx@2, pumping) from 205.188.200.156
Brenda, balsalmic vinegar is awesome!!!
I have a great recipe. Saute chicken in italian dressing you make with balsalmic. By the time the chix is cooked, the vinegar is sort of carmelized. serve with whatever side you like. Even my kids eat it.

Sue, CT (Evan 10,dx@7,inhaling; Casey,5, dx@2, pumping) from 205.188.200.156
Sarah, yes, he's in a clinical trial at Yale New Haven. He's only been doing it 3 weeks now. it's like learning management all over again (like when my daughter started pumping) He injects Lente at bed and used the "puffing" like a bolus when he eats. But it is not quite the same as a basal/bolus thing like the pump.

Fro Brenda. Grilling is a great way to get flavor. I would also recommend using flavor chips in a pan beneath your grill rack to add flavor to the foods. Mesquite and chardonnay are my favorite. Just make sure when grilling, you use lean cuts of beef or pork so as to prevent too much fat hitting the coals. Try seafood more and more and don't forget the veggies! do you need more grilling recipes???

Brenda,I imagine it would work with balsalmic vinegrette, I like to make good seasons italian with the balsalmic, but when I don't have any, I user bottled italian. This is about the most "gourmet" meal I ever make.

Sarah, how's it working. Tell me there's hope that we will eventually acheive the control we had with 2-3 shots a day. Our CDE tells me that the kid's she's had usually take about 4 weeks or so to 'equalize'. I really want Pfizer to come out with a 1/2 mg blister. (or 1/3)

Well, we have a gas grill and I'm not sure how to do the flavors. As I said 45 min. ago, my troops won't eat too many new things. I love grilled shrimp and some types of fish, as well as some veggies, but I am in the minority here. I tried salmon steaks a couple of months ago and I was the only one who really liked it.

To all who need good grilling recipes. Here is simple one that is so good. Peel and core a fresh pineapple. cut the pineapple into 1 inch thick slices. place over medium hot coals. Brush with melted lite butter and grill both sides for 4-5 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from the grill and serve as dessert or as a side dish. yummy!!!!

Hello =) I realize this chat is probably almost over but I wanted to stop in. Sue, I am from CT as well

Hi Emily. Where do you get your care? I bet the pump is just right for the schedule (or lack of schedule) of a teenager.

robyn webb (chat host) from 168.191.22.12
Brenda. you can still add flavor chips in a pan underneath your racks. Also don't despair over the lack of cheers for seafood or veggies. Grilling is easy enough to make what everyone enjoys. but keep introducing the seafood and veggies, you may be surprised in alittle while. I can give you more recipes to make veggies and fish appealing. Just e mail me at robynwebb@aol.com, anytime for anything!!!!

Somewhere (maybe Southern Living), I found a recipe for chicken and pineapple kabobs. I loved them.

Sue, I go to Yale. How about you? The pump is wonderful-- It helps with giving me the flexibility I need. Between school, working 5 days a week, extracurricular activities....

robyn webb (chat host) from 168.191.22.12
Sue, e mail me the complete recipe, I might be able to publish in forecast magazine 9 no promises, but I have a bit of control over my own column)

well sue i would like to talk to you more about the inhaler study so if you want to you can email me at Davean123@cs.com or something...i have never talked to anyone else with the inhaler

Sue, CT (Evan 10,dx@7,inhaling; Casey,5, dx@2, pumping) from 205.188.200.156
Thx Sarah. I look forward to him levelling out. How do you manage food portions that may not require a whole 1 mg. Do you 'correct' for high BGs with a puff? What if you don't want to eat and 1 mg is too much?

Robyn, I am a "recipe-aholic." I must have about 80 cookbooks and it takes great restraint for me to go to a bookstore and not buy more, but I will keep your e-mail address if I find I need something in particular. I have tried other recipes from Forecast in the past. Maybe I should go through the 40 or so old issues I have and make sure I didn't miss any good ones!
