I had a piece of cake (very very small the other day) but everytime I feel horrible. Like sick to my stomach, nausea. Anyone else have this?

Yep sometimes London, you know you were wrong LOL!!! Leave it along, we do get a little weak from time to time so do I. It was good going in but once in it did a dance. LOL!

I have a dumping syndrome when I eat concentrated sweets (cake, ice cream, candy bars, sugary cereals in milk). The concentrated sweets go rapidly into my small intestine where the rapid absorption causes nausea, vomiting, rapid (I mean RAPID) heart rate..I am not a pretty site. This has done more than anything to convince me to stay away from concentrated sweets.

I am so sorry for your condition, I couldn't even imagine, you take care of yourself and stay well.

Sometimes things that are richer than the foods I normally eat cause my stomach to get upset and maybe that happens when you eat the cake. Regardless, be aware for the next time and ask yourslef if it is worth it!!

As I have been recently diagnosed, I find that I am still in the throes of enthusiasm for all of the ways I am changing my life to control my disease, so it's still kind of easy for me to maintain control at this point. In tandem with this although my physician didn't request that I keep a food journal, I chose to do it anyway as a way of keeping myself in check. I find there is nothing quite like the brutal honesty of documentation to quell even the slightest yearning for "bad" things. As I mentioned to my physician at a recent appointment "Diabetes cures cravings". But, like I said, that's how it is now…I know I will eventually 'slip', and I accept that, I will just not allow something so minor to completely derail me, and none of us should…
'cuz that's how the sugar wins! LOL!

I was diagnosed 5 mo ago. It felt really nice at first but the cravings are starting to arrise. I have to give myself some hard discipline because my family is totally clueless and are junk food junkies. LOL Good luck on your adventure with this disease, you can do it!

"To err is human, to forgive is divine." We are not perfect any one of us and I personally don't believe that there is not one diabetic out there that hasn't had a piece of cake or candy or whatever the sinful delight is. I had a dietician tell me one time not to deny myself the "sweeter" things in life, but to do it in moderation. Don't feel guilty because of the little piece of cake, forgive yourself instead and move on from there. Hang in there hon, we are all in the same boat.

i feel like that when i eat something sweet. i think that we just get used to not eating it like we used too and the stomach doesnt accept it that much no more. just a thought.

London 2010-01-21 21:38:55 -0600 Report

I had that same thought. I'm guessing that is what it was, although I have to admit I was feeling a little guilty! LOL

I'm wondering if the cake made you sick or the guilt of eating this did. If it was the latter, we all eat things we shouldn't, and I for one refuse to feel guilty. I vow not to do it again, and try hard, but if I fail, oh well, "tomorrow is another day."
