Hi littlered,
Having teeth pulled is no fun! I understand your concerns about elevated sugars with high carb soft/liquid diet. I would recommend you continue to follow your usual carb managed meal plan and include protein foods such as blended cottage cheese, yogurt, blended scrambled eggs and maybe even some purreed chicken and meats from the baby food section of the store! Try blending peanut butter and banana for a protein and carb snack or add to some milk or yogurt for a smoothie. Again, keep track of your carbs! Increasing protein foods help with the healing process, you may also want to be sure to get plenty of sleep. Check out our chat archive for our 5/21/13 chat with Dr. Gajendra, Clinical Chief of Community Dentistry at the Eastman Institute for Oral Health for additional information re: good dental hygiene tips and preventive care for people with diabetes.

hello again just had two teeth pulled on thursday the 16 they put me on a liquid diet wow my sugars dropped they also made me take antibotics longer than other people im hoping this will also help me have better control of my sugars . ill have a partial in for two too three months is there anything i can do to speed my recovery time till i get my implants besides keeping my aic down? i cant eat much and my mouth is sore from my partial. i realize this takes time andi have dissolving stiches does high sugar make them dissolve quicker? and can you recomend any soft foods/ liquid that i can eat they recomended mashed potatoes and milk shakes lol oh to have a milk shake lol my sugar would be over three hundred i couldnt take that much insulin my pump would hollar at me
