diabetesincntrl #diabeteschat A1: look at your carbs
diabetesincntrl Focus on Carbohydrates to start #DIABETESCHAT
strongerthant1d A1Focus on portion control and try to eat as low carb when you can but this doesn’t have to be all the time. #diabeteschat

lowcarbrd A2: Fiber, especially soluble fiber, can reduce risk of developing diabetes and improve blood glucose control #DiabetesChat
maureensrn A2- High fiber diet->fuller feeling last longer, colon health, aids digestive process in most cases. #diabeteschat
laurenpincusrd A2: High fiber diets rich in whole grains, beans, nuts, fruit and vegs help to lower the risk of diabetes. #diabeteschat

diabetesincntrl A2: Fiber plays a minor role, 10% of your blood sugars #diabeteschat
lowcarbrd A2 @koshereye @MaureenSRN Beans, blackberries, avocado, brussels sprouts, and flaxseed are high in soluble fiber #DiabetesChat
rlewis #DiabetesChat what is the average/typical/expected A1C reduction under the Bernstein Diet?
diabetesincntrl #diabeteschat physical activity and reducing carbs is the key component to controlling diabetes
maureensrn High fiber foods- aim for healthy balance of vegetables. Read labels, consult RD for best foods for your specific likes. #diabeteschat
lowcarbrd @MaureenSRN Yes, chia as well! Forgot that one 🙂 #DiabetesChat
alyssaavant @MaureenSRN do chia seeds have any flavor? #diabeteschat
pinkhippo13 A2 Helps with your sugars, I believe. Helps them not spike #DiabetesChat @CDiabetesInfo
doctorsoption @AlyssaAvant @MaureenSRN Don’t expect miracles from chia seeds, reduce your carbs is the most important element #diabeteschat

primetimeparent .@LaurenPincusRD #DiabetesChat love chia #BeatingDiabetes
maureensrn A3- Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish, or poultry. Vegans dont use other animal products and by-products such as eggs, dairy . #diabeteschat
maureensrn A3 Vitamin B12 occurs naturally only in animal foods; may need variety of B12-fortified foods as well as a B12 supplement. #diabeteschat
lowcarbrd @primetimeparent @LaurenPincusRD I like making chia seed pudding by soaking seeds, then combining w/cocoa powder & sweetener #DiabetesChat
maureensrn A3 B12 keeps nerve & blood cells healthy, so deficiencies can lead to tiredness, nerve problems,& depression #diabeteschat
laurenpincusrd I put chia in all my overnight oats- adds great texture and much more filling. #diabeteschat https://t.co/0ttwjOqI4S
