Bread units - why they need to be considered?
August 28, 2011
The fact that the diabetes patient nutrition plays a crucial role, is known to many. Indeed, the regulation of dietary intake of carbohydrates facilitates the selection of the correct dose of insulin, but it is very difficult to calculate the necessary amount of certain foods on a daily basis for many years, and all that hard, people are usually ignored. That is why, and introduced the concept of "bread unit", which facilitated the calculation of power to millions of people suffering from some form of diabetes.
What is bread unit
Bread Unit (BU) - a measure of carbohydrate in foods. One bread unit is equal to twelve grams of sugar, or twenty-five grams of black bread. On the splitting of one bread unit spent a certain amount of insulin
The principles of action of insulin - the science of saving lives
On average equal to two units of action in the morning, one and a half units a day, and one unit of action in the evening.
Figures may vary depending on the individual characteristics of the human body, so it is recommended for all patients at first to keep a food diary in which they note the level of glucose
Glucose: The energy source
fasting insulin dose administered, taking the product, quantity and the level of postprandial glucose. Based on these data, the monitored two - four weeks, one may conclude the number of individual dose of insulin needed to cleave one grain units.
Information about how much grain is contained in a specific number of units of the product makes life easier for diabetics, because it helps to determine the appropriate dose of insulin for each administration.
Determination of the daily requirement of bread units
Determine the normal daily caloric intake using special tables that take into account the age and type of activity. If the weight is above the norm - the result obtained by subtracting ten percent.
Example: we find that a day should be consumed 2000 kcal, if the weight is excessive - subtract 10% (200), and note that you need to consume per day 1800 kcal.
- With carbohydrates must be received 55% of the diet, therefore, 1800 multiplied by 55 per cent and get 990 calories.
- One gram of carbohydrate provides 4 calories, so 990 divided by 4 and get 248 grams. That is a day you can consume 248 grams of carbohydrates.
- One bread unit is equal to 12 grams of carbohydrates, so divide 248 by 12 and get 20 XE.
Given the fact that a person's weight, age and scope of change is rarely - such a calculation is performed too infrequently.
Distribution of bread units during the day
Traditionally, there are three main meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner, so increasing the number of carbohydrate falls on them, taking into account the schedule of the day, the individual characteristics of appetite and principles of good nutrition.
At the same time, you can eat no more than seven units of grain, as it is impossible to introduce at the same time more than 14 units of insulin a short (1 XE introduces two units of insulin). Estimated distribution of bread units during the day might look like this: breakfast and lunch six XE for dinner - five and three HEH HEH distributed throughout the day in the so-called snacks - lunch, afternoon snack and a second dinner.
Knowing how much you can eat bread units, the patient looks into a special table and selects the products that cause the appetite, corresponding to the selection criteria. Thus, the power of the patient will be varied and nutritious.
Tables bread units
There are detailed tables, which indicate the name of the product, the amount in grams and kilocalories bread units. They can be found in clinics doctors - endocrinologists, specialized in books and on the Internet.
According to one unit of bread contain:
- one glass of milk, yogurt or yogurt;
- one regular piece of black bread, and a little less - white, two crackers, five crackers;
- two tablespoons with slide any cooked cereal, three tablespoons of cooked pasta, ten tablespoons of popcorn without sugar, one pancake, two dumplings, four dumplings, half pies with meat, one patty;
- two teaspoons of sugar or honey without slides, one medium boiled potatoes, two apricot, quince one large, one orange, one-eighth of watermelon, half a banana
Bananas: the benefits and harms health
Twelve cherries, grapes ten, one small pear, one large pomegranate, half a grapefruit.
Bread unit is definitely a very important concept for the patient with diabetes
Diabetes - threatening and incurable disease
Therefore it is necessary to use them and lead a full life, eating correctly and diverse.
