Diabetic Sugar Free Desserts and Candy

Having a sweet tooth accompanied by a medical condition that prevents you from eating sweets can be quite a maddening combination. Our experts have put together an article that mitigates the problem through sugar free desserts and candy. Read on.

Children and adults, teenagers and grandmas, almost everyone loves desserts and candies. Candy satisfies your craving for sweets. But the main ingredient in candies – sugar – is something that isn’t exactly good for your health. Sugar causes cavities and tooth decay.

But, for all those candy lovers and for those who are diabetic, there is still hope. Sugar free desserts and candy is great for those sweet cravings while avoiding the dangers of sugar and maintaining a healthy diet.

Here are a few recipes for sugar free desserts and sugar free candies that will not only help you maintain a healthy diet, but will also satisfy your sweet cravings…

Sugar Free Chocolate-coated Fruits

Now, this is one of my favorite sugar free desserts that give you a healthy serving of fruits while satisfying your sweet tooth.

You need a few chunks of unsweetened chocolate or baking chocolate, fruits of your choice and some raspberry or orange flavoring. Melt the chocolate chunks on low heat. Cut up fruits of your choice, apples, bananas, pears, etc. and dip into the melted chocolate. Coat the fruit pieces with the melted chocolate and set to dry on wax paper. You might add a bit of flavoring to the melted chocolate to make this sugar free dessert more interesting.

Sugar Free Candy Cubes

You’ll need
3 oz. size boxes of sugar free Jello, 3 boxes
Boiling water 4 cups
Knox unflavored gelatin 4 packets

This is a quick candy recipe that is easy to make and can be served as a sugar free dessert at lunch. Mix all the powders and dissolve in the hot water. Stir for about five minutes until the powders are completely dissolved. Pour the mixture into a flat tray and chill in refrigerator. Once cooled, cut into bite-sized pieces and serve.

Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cups

You’ll need
Unsalted Butter ½ cup
Unsweetened baking chocolate 1 ounce
Splenda Granular 1/3 cup
A tablespoon of cream or half-and-half
Peanut Butter 4 tablespoons
Chopped walnuts or nuts of your choice ¼ cup

Melt butter, chocolate and Splenda in microwave on ‘High’ heat till melted. Heat for about a minute or minute and half, but do not boil. Into the chocolate and butter mixture, add the cream and stir. Line ten muffin tins with cupcake paper and sprinkle nuts at the base. Divide and pour the mixture among the ten muffin tins and freeze the Peanut Butter Cups until firm. You need to store these in the freezer compartment as they melt quite quickly. If you don’t like to use Splenda, you could substitute it with honey.

How to Manage Adult Incontinence?

Incontinence in adults is a common effect for those who suffering from diabetes. Incontinence is a frustrating condition for many in which a sufferer has a difficult time controlling his or her urinary bladder. In such cases, individuals suffering from adult incontinence will lose control of his or her bladder when least expected, such as during the night or throughout the day, in such cases one should always use medically protected incontinence pads for men and women.

Adult incontinence productFor people who have been diagnosed with diabetes for more than 8 years, add a urologist or urogynecologist to your medical team. Bladder dysfunction resulting from nerve damage (autonomic neuropathy) effects 40% to 80% of the diabetic population. You may not even know your bladder is not operating properly.

Get to Know Your Unrinary System. The better you understand it the easier it will be for you to protect your urinary system. If you do not control your glucose levels using digital Blood Pressure Monitor, the sugar may damage your urinary system which includes:

The 2 kidneys – cleans the blood, controls the pH (acidity/alkalinity), controls the amount of sodium, potassium and calcium in the blood (electrolytes)

  • The 2 ureters – tubes that carry urine down to the bladder.
  • The bladder – a muscular container that stores and pumps out urine.
  • The urethra – a tube that allows urine to leave the body.

The chance of damaging the urinary system increases with the of years of poorly controlled blood sugar. The kidneys are damaged when:

  1. Glucose attacks the blood vessels that feed the kidneys thereby reducing the blood flow to the kidneys.
  2. The overly filled bladder is not emptied often enough resulting in bacterial growth in bladder. Then the bacteria moves up through the ureters from the bladder to the kidneys.

The enlarged bladder can be asymptomatic (AY-simp-toe-mat-ick). That is – as you lose the ability to sense a full bladder, the bladder is emptied less often. As you know, many diabetics drink a lot of liquids to ease their great thirst. The liquids and blood pass through the kidneys for filtration then deposit into the bladder as urine. The bladder stretches to hold more urine.

When the bladder fills but doesn’t expand, you will begin to accidentally leak urine in your clothes due to: Stress incontinence — your bladder leaks urine when you sneeze, cough, or strain. Urge incontinence is frequently feeling you need to urinate – but only a small amount of urine is released each time. At this stage adsorbent pads or adult diapers will have to be worn at all times. The worse case is when your bladder becomes paralyzed. Either the nerve damage is so severe the brain’s message to contract does not reach the bladder or the muscle of the bladder can no longer contract. At this stage, the bladder will have to be drained by a catheter (a device that enters the bladder through the urethra.

Use Adult incontinence product

There are many adult incontinence products available for individuals who suffer from the condition. These incontinence pads for men products vary a great deal depending on the need and application. For example, if individuals suffer from adult incontinence at night, they may prefer to use a bed pad. However, if individuals suffer from adult incontinence during the day, they may turn to bladder control pads or disposable briefs.

Adult incontinence products are designed for both men and women – though the designs may vary based on gender. It may be helpful for individuals to try several different adult incontinence undergarment styles before selecting the product that works best for them and their comfort levels.
