I need help from readers of Diabetic Connect. I have been Type I diabetic since childhood (50 years) on Levemir and Humalog injections.
I recently spent two weeks in local hospital following severe abdominal pain. I was diagnosed with Severe Ischemic Colitis and have been placed on a low residue (low fiber diet). During hospitalization, I received lots of fluids with magnesium and potassium, and am presently deficit in protein and albumin.
I know no one with colitis. I would like to hear from readers with colitis about what they eat, how to combine the low fiber diet with low carb diet.
At this time, I am eating baked fish without skin, chicken baked without skin, very lean hamburger baked, pork chop baked with non spicy barbeque sauce, and low fat cottage cheese.
The allowed vegetables are green beans, squash, carrots, asparagus - mostly canned. I am concerned about too much carb with adding mac and cheese and potatoes without skin which are allowed . I was advised to use white bread only but the gastro staff are saying wheat bread without much fiber/grain would also be okay? I am confused.
Would appreciate any feedback from your readers or your staff.
