Types of Diabetes

There are three major types of diabetes.

Type 1 Diabetes -results from the body’s failure to produce insulin, and presently requires the person to inject insulin. (Also referred to as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, IDDM for short, and juvenile diabetes.) (Wikipedia)

Diet is important to all three types of diabetes. Eating healthy balanced meals and balancing carbohydrates, sugars and proteins, along with your insulin shots, will prolong your life and make the quality of that life much better. A good diabetes diet is low in carbohydrates.

Here at Diabetic Meal Programs, our commitment to quality helps us provide nutrition in every diabetic meal we serve. Our diabetic meals are nutritious, delicious and ready when you are. All of our meals are planned by our culinary team and certified by our Registered Dietitian to meet or exceed the daily reference intake’s nutritional requirements.

Type 2 Diabetes -is a metabolic disorder that is characterized by high blood glucose in the context of insulin resistance and relative insulin deficiency. Diabetes is often initially managed by increasing exercise and dietary modification. As the condition progresses, medications may be needed. (Wikipedia)

Exercise and proper diet have been known to significantly decrease the symptoms of diabetes 2, allowing the patient to live a normal, healthy life .

One of our customers gives us a stirring testimonial:
As a diabetic who lives alone in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Jim Furth knows firsthand the value of Diabetic Meal Programs diabetic meals. “Shopping for all the “right” things is not something I look forward to doing each week, [and] cooking for one is no fun,” he writes.

Diabetic Meal Programs has brought a bit of convenience back into Jim’s life, not to mention the fun back into his meal time. Now, Jim chooses his favorite menus from the web site, using the glycemic index and nutritional statistics to pick meals that are right for his dietary needs. Then, much to his delight, they arrive at his front door ready to warm up and enjoy.

“When I chose Diabetic Meal Programs, I’ve made the right choice. It’s like I could afford my own nutritionist, dietitian and chef! Having the confidence that real pros have designed each meal that not only do the meals taste good but are good for me. Besides, there is so much choice.” he writes. “I worked hard and got my health 100% in check and then went into the hospital for hip replacement surgery.” While in the hospital recovering Jim ate a poor diet of meals consisting of mashed potatoes, spaghetti, and white rice, even though these meals were part of the hospital’s diabetic and non-salt meal program. The doctors had to put Jim on insulin for the first time in his life.

Only when he was back home and eating his regular diet of carefully chosen MagicKitchen.com meals could Jim stop using the insulin. This only confirmed his belief that the program fit his nutritional needs. “The Diabetic Friendly meals helps one grasp what is necessary then, with the use of the website, one can proceed to choosing meals that are even more exciting and more restaurant quality and have Diabetic Meal Programs there to do all the ‘messy’ work and drudgery,” he writes “I like the choice of having Diabetic Meal Programs, and I like choosing the way I cook my meals either in the microwave or conventional oven. The hard parts are taken care of for me, and it is all delivered to my front door on a schedule I choose. What a company!”

Type 3 Diabetes, or Gestational Diabetes-occurs in about 2%–5% of all pregnancies and may improve or disappear after delivery. Gestational diabetes is fully treatable but requires careful medical supervision throughout the pregnancy. About 20%–50% of affected women develop type 2 diabetes later in life. A 2008 study completed in the U.S. found that the number of American women entering pregnancy with preexisting diabetes is increasing. In fact the rate of diabetes in expectant mothers has more than doubled in the past 6 years.[7] This is particularly problematic as diabetes raises the risk of complications during pregnancy, as well as increasing the potential that the children of diabetic mothers will also become diabetic in the future. (Wikipedia)
