When you live with diabetes, it’s essential to put healthy and balanced food choices at the top of your list of concerns.
Diabetes is a disease that is characterized by the body’s inability to appropriately process sugar, which is like fuel for the body’s cells. This results in a rise of blood glucose (level of sugar in the blood). Frequent and prolonged exposure to increased blood glucose (hyperglycemia) is the cause of the medical consequences of diabetes, which are numerous and can be very serious. It is important to do everything possible to normalize blood glucose levels.
Several methods can be used to accomplish this, such as dietary changes, increasing physical activity and weight loss, which are the basis of treatment. These are effective measures in reducing blood glucose levels. In addition to this, there are drug treatments, including oral medication and insulin when non-pharmacologic measures are insufficient.
By choosing a healthy and balanced diet, you will reduce the amount of sugar and fat you ingest, which has numerous advantages. Furthermore, this promotes weight loss, which is particularly beneficial in the case of type 2 diabetes.
If you take insulin or medications to treat diabetes, speak to your pharmacist or healthcare professional before changing your dietary habits, starting physical activity or beginning weight loss. Your medication may need to be adjusted or it may be necessary to closely monitor your blood glucose.
