Cook Right With Noemi

“I took charge by eating smaller portions throughout the day.”

Noemi, treating with Lantus since 2006.

Individual results may vary.

    Title: Cooking Right With Noemi

    Noemi: Hi there. I’m Noemi [Super: (by Noemi) Lantus Mentor], and this is Martha [Super: (by Martha) Registered Dietician]

    Super: Lantus® Mentor

    Noemi

    Taking Lantus® (insulin glargine injection) 100 Units/mL SoloSTAR® since 2006.

    Noemi: And today we’re going to make a diabetes-friendly dinner.

    Super: Consult with your physician or registered dietician before making any diet changes.

    Martha: Making healthy food choices is part of a full diabetes treatment plan. So we’re going to talk about simple ways to make smart food choices.

    Noemi: Today, I want to share with you one of my favorite meals. The main dish is green chili chicken enchilada casserole. First, you need one can of green enchilada sauce. Four cups of cooked and cubed chicken. One cup of low-fat sour cream. One can of green diced chilies. And a cup of grated cheddar cheese.

    Super: This recipe contains ingredients that may cause an allergic reaction in some people. Talk to your doctor about your allergies before you make any dietary changes. For those on a low sodium diet, low salt ingredients may be an option.

    Martha: You really seem like you know what you’re doing.

    Noemi: I may seem like a pro now, but when I was first diagnosed, I had no idea what to eat.

    Martha: So, how did you actually become a pro? What did you do?

    Noemi: I think the first thing I did was portion control. Especially with this meal, you really have to take portion control into consideration because it’s big and it’s really, really delicious. And if it’s in front of you, you’re probably going to eat it all like I would.

    Martha: I totally agree with you about portion control. Most people eat a lot more than they think they do.

    Noemi: One thing I would say to everyone is, “You can’t beat yourself up about it.” You know we all make mistakes.

    Martha: While the enchiladas are cooking, let’s talk about things that you can do to stay on track when it comes to food.

    Title: #1 Make the right portion, #2 Eat small meals, #3 Plan your meals.

    Martha: The first thing is to always make the right portion. The second tip would be to eat several small meals a day instead of one or two large meals. My third tip is to plan out your meals a few days ahead of time.

    Noemi: The fun part of all this is learning to make new meals like the one we’re cooking here today, which leads me to our sweet cucumbers.

    ON-SCREEN:

    • what you’ll need
    • sweet cucumbers
    • rice vinegar 1/3 cup
    • sugar 1 tbsp
    • black pepper ¼ tsp
    • dillweed a pinch
    • sweet onions 1 cup
    • cucumber 1 medium size

    Noemi: It’s refreshing, light, and lots of fun.

    Noemi: Now doesn’t that look great?

    Martha: That looks delicious!

    Noemi: The next thing we’re going to make is my favorite dessert.

    ON-SCREEN:

    • frozen strawberry smoothie
    • what you’ll need
    • low-fat yogurt
    • frozen strawberries
    • vanilla extract

    Noemi: It’s a frozen strawberry smoothie. I love this dessert because it’s also a great snack.

    Super: #1 Martha’s Snacking Tips

    Martha: Snacks can actually be quite healthy. Some of my favorite snacks would be an ounce of low-fat cheese with a small apple. That way you’re getting the combination of some protein fat and some carbohydrates, which is a great combination.

    Super: #2 Martha’s Snacking Tips

    Martha: Another good idea for a snack would be two teaspoons of peanut butter and two whole grain crackers.

    Super: #3 Martha’s Snacking Tips

    Martha: And lastly, half a cup of cottage cheese and three-quarters of a cup of blueberries.

    Noemi: Hmm, sounds yummy.

    Noemi: You know cooking right doesn’t happen overnight. I’ve had diabetes for over 16 years, and it has taken me a really long time to get to this point; to understand good foods and how to make them part of my life. Be patient with yourself; it’s okay to have a bad day. I think our casserole is ready.

    Noemi: And there you have it. Now remember, this dinner serves a family of four plus guests. So here are portions served for one. The sweet cucumbers have zero carbs.

    Super: 0 carbs

    Noemi: The enchiladas are high in protein, low in fat.

    Super: high protein, low fat

    Noemi: And this is our dessert. One serving has 4 grams of fiber.

    Super: 4 grams of fiber

    Noemi: You can’t go wrong with that. Now, doesn’t that look delicious?

    Martha: It looks like an absolutely delicious meal.

    Noemi: I’m Noemi.

    Martha: And I’m Martha.

    Noemi: Thanks for watching “Cooking Right With Noemi.”

    Title: Noemi’s Tips for Lantus® (insulin glargine injection) 100 Units/mL

    1. It’s important to test your blood sugar levels. Your dose may increase based on your insulin needs. Your dose will probably change during your first few months taking Lantus®.
      This is not uncommon. It’s very important to work with your treating healthcare professional to find the dose that’s right for you.
    2. Tracking your blood sugar is a great tool to help make decisions about your diabetes treatment plan.
      Checking your blood sugar helps you know if you’re getting the right dose of Lantus® for your insulin needs. Do not make changes to your dose or type of insulin without talking to your healthcare professional.
    3. Help get the most from your treatment by making healthy choices.
      Remember that Lantus® works best as a part of an overall diabetes treatment plan. This plan includes a healthy diet and regular exercise, as well as other diabetes medications.

    Super: Consult with your physician before starting any exercise program.

    Today, Ted and I are going to take you through the home and show you a bunch of different exercises you can do with stuff already around your house. No gym required, and no equipment either, Ted.

    Ted: That's great. I'm ready. Anything to beat that gym equipment. Let's get started.

    Jim: All right, Ted, let’s go.

    Title: House blueprint: “The Kitchen”

    Jim: Ah, Ted, the kitchen. Normally we eat in the kitchen, but today we're going to exercise, Ted.

    Ted: Exercise in the kitchen? What are we going to do, Jim?

    Jim: We're going to do shoulder raises.

    Super:

    • Strengthens shoulder
    • Helps with lifting and raising

    2 TO 3 SETS

    12 TO 15 REPS

    Jim: Do you have any soup cans available?

    Ted: Yeah, I think I do have.

    Jim: Great.

    Ted: Right here's a couple.

    Jim: Ted, why don't you take this one?

    Ted: Thank you for the light one.

    Jim: Sure, no problem. We're going to stand with our feet about shoulder-width apart. Your knees are going to be slightly bent for me, and your back is up nice and tall. We're going to raise that weight straight out in front, nice and slow and controlled, and return back to the starting position. Let's continue that for 12 repetitions.

    Ted: Feels good, Jim.

    Jim: Very good, Ted. Nice job. What do you say we continue on throughout the house and find more things that we can go ahead and exercise with?

    Ted: Okay. Let's go.

    Jim: All right. Let's do it, Ted. Come on.

    Title: House blueprint: “The Laundry Room”

    Jim: Ted, can you ever guess what exercise you'd be doing in the laundry room?

    Ted: No, I can't Jim, but I bet you got an idea.

    Jim: Well, it's bicep curls. Let me show you.

    Title: BICEP CURLS

    Super:

    • Strengthens upper arm
    • Helps with lifting

    2 TO 3 SETS

    12 TO 15 REPS

    Jim: Bicep curls work your biceps, the muscles at the front of your upper arm. I call them your beach muscles.

    Ted: Bicep curls?

    Jim: That's right. I'm going to hand you one of these and we'll get started.

    Ted: You mean I don't have to go out and buy one of them big expensive dumbbells?

    Jim: No. We're going to place our elbow right at our side for me, and then our feet are about shoulder-width apart, knees are slightly bent. I want you to take it all the way up to your shoulder and then slowly lower down. Good.

    Ted: It's already burning, Jim.

    Jim: All right.

    Ted: Feels like I've done a hundred of them.

    Jim: All right, let's move on.

    Title: House blueprint: “The Bathroom”

    Ted: Lead the way, 'cause I'm sure you'll find something else.

    Jim: Now we come to the bathroom, Ted. This is a great place for exercise.

    Ted: Come on, Jim. The bathroom? I'm not over the laundry room yet. What are we going to do in the bathroom?

    Jim: Oh, this is awesome. I'll show you the best one. It's calf raises.

    Title: House blueprint: “The Living Room”

    Jim: All right, let's continue on in the rest of the house. There's plenty more.

    Ted: What else you got up your sleeve?

    Jim: I’ll tell you. Look here. It's a couch.

    Ted: A couch? What are we going to do here, take a nap?

    Jim: Oh, we can do couch dips. It's a great exercise.

    Ted: Really?

    Jim: Yeah, let me show you.

    Ted: Well, let's get started.

    Title: DIPS

    Super:

    • Strengthens upper body
    • Helps with pushing

    2 TO 3 SETS

    12 TO 15 REPS

    Jim: Dips work your triceps, which happen to be the largest muscle in your upper arm. They also work your chest and shoulders.

    Jim: Just have a seat here with your hands right on the edge of the couch, with your feet right underneath of you. I just want you to slowly push up and return back to the starting position. Great job, Ted. Fifteen repetitions for me.

    Jim: So, how’d you enjoy the workout?

    Ted: Oh, great. I didn’t realize there’s so much you can do in the house. You know, I do walk Katie Dog every day.

    Jim: Aw Ted, that’s great. It’s a great motivator to walk with a buddy and it also keeps you committed to your workout. What do you say we go take that walk now, Ted?

    Ted: That’d be great. Let’s go.

    Jim: Thank you for joining us with “Get Fit with Ted.” We’re going to go and take that walk with Katie Dog now.

Circle of Support With Loretha

“I rely on others to help make me stronger.”

Loretha, treating with Lantus since 2007.

Individual results may vary.

    Loretha: Diabetes is a lifestyle change. And it certainly helps you to know that you’re not alone on the journey. I call it a journey. I started 27 years ago and I’m still on that journey. But certainly the support that you have from your family and friends can make such a difference.

    Title: Loretha’s CIRCLE OF SUPPORT

    Super: Loretha Taking Lantus® (insulin glargine injection) 100 Units/mL SoloSTAR® since 2007

    Loretha: Friends — they are so important, and these past few months have been quite challenging with me. The fact that you all came to see me — I know you don’t have to be here for me to know that you’re thinking about me and that you love me. But the fact that you came here with me, it makes all the difference in the world. So — I just wanted to let you know that I thank you, and I appreciate you, and I love you, and you all look so good. [Laughter]

    Vern: Loretha and I have been happily married for 34 years.

    Loretha: How many years, dear?

    Vern: 34 years. And I’m pleased to say there have been some good ones.

    Title: VERN, “The ONE”

    Vern: Actually, we met at work. I worked for Sears for some 38 years, and she worked for Sears for about 35, and during this time, well, we met, and December 31, 1976, we got married.

    Vern: When Loretha was diagnosed with diabetes it was a traumatic matter for both of us, but considering the fact that we have gone through other hurdles and I assured her that we was going to go through that one too and she had my total support.

    Delilah: Loretha and I get together and we sing through songs that inspire us.

    Title: DELILAH “THE HARMONY”

    Delilah: And she has the most fantastic voice. I can listen to her sing forever.

    Delilah: I’ll sit next to her and then I pretend like I’m singing as well as she does, and it is hilarious, because I feel so small next to her because she’s so great at it, and it’s absolutely hilarious, but I have so much fun.

    Lynda: She says I’m the funny one because if I see something happening, I can look at Loretha and me and her, like, feeling the same thing, and we kind of laugh, you know, laugh at things.

    Title: LYNDA “THE SIDEKICK”

    Lynda: So sometimes when she get a little down, even now sometimes, and she’s, “Oh, I’m tired.” I said, “Well, you can make it; you can make it,” and she said, “Yes, I can, Lynda. Thank you.” She said, “I can … I can make it.”

    Regina: Loretha is one of those people who just gives of herself, and because she gives so much of herself, it’s easy for me to give back to her.

    Title: REGINA “THE SHOULDER”

    Regina: I’m a substitute teacher for Loretha, and also, sometimes I sit in for her whenever she’s not there. I know Loretha has her challenges with her diabetes and she’d never let that get her down.

    Loretha: The one thing I can say when living with diabetes — you certainly need that circle of support. And I’m glad that I found mine.

What is Lantus® (insulin glargine injection) 100 Units/mL?

Prescription Lantus is a long-acting insulin used to treat adults with type 2 diabetes and adults and pediatric patients (children 6 years and older) with type 1 diabetes for the control of high blood sugar.

  • Do not use Lantus to treat diabetic ketoacidosis.

Important Safety Information

Important Safety Information

Do not take Lantus during episodes of low blood sugar or if you are allergic to insulin or any of the inactive ingredients in Lantus.

Do not share needles, insulin pens, or syringes with others. Do NOT reuse needles.

Before starting Lantus, tell your doctor about all your medical conditions, including if you have liver or kidney problems, if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant or if you are breast-feeding or planning to breast-feed.

Change (rotate) your injection sites within the area you chose with each dose to reduce your risk of getting pitted or thickened skin (lipodystrophy) and skin with lumps (localized cutaneous amyloidosis) at the injection sites. Do not use the same spot for each injection or inject where the skin is pitted, thickened, lumpy, tender, bruised, scaly, hard, scarred or damaged.

Heart failure can occur if you are taking insulin together with certain medicines called TZDs (thiazolidinediones), even if you have never had heart failure or other heart problems. If you already have heart failure, it may get worse while you take TZDs with Lantus. Your treatment with TZDs and Lantus may need to be changed or stopped by your doctor if you have new or worsening heart failure. Tell your doctor if you have any new or worsening symptoms of heart failure, including:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Swelling of your ankles or feet
  • Sudden weight gain

Tell your doctor about all the medications you take, including OTC medicines, vitamins, and supplements, including herbal supplements.

Lantus should be taken once a day at the same time every day. Test your blood sugar levels while using insulin, such as Lantus. Do not make any changes to your dose or type of insulin without talking to your healthcare provider. Any change of insulin should be made cautiously and only under medical supervision.

Do NOT dilute or mix Lantus with any other insulin or solution. It will not work as intended and you may lose blood sugar control, which could be serious. Lantus must only be used if the solution is clear and colorless with no particles visible. Always make sure you have the correct insulin before each injection.

While using Lantus, do not drive or operate heavy machinery until you know how Lantus affects you. You should not drink alcohol or use other medicines that contain alcohol.

The most common side effect of insulin, including Lantus, is low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), which may be serious and life threatening. It may cause harm to your heart or brain. Symptoms of serious low blood sugar may include shaking, sweating, fast heartbeat, and blurred vision.

Lantus may cause serious side effects that can lead to death, such as severe allergic reactions. Get medical help right away if you have:

  • A rash over your whole body
  • Trouble breathing
  • A fast heartbeat
  • Sweating
  • Swelling of your face, tongue, or throat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Extreme drowsiness, dizziness, or confusion

Other possible side effects may include swelling, weight gain, low potassium levels, injection site reactions, including changes in fat tissue at the injection site, and allergic reactions.
