diet for diabetes

In India diabetes is not an unknown term these days, the frequency of diabetes is rising at an alarming rate.

A metabolic state wherein the blood sugar levels rise above the average count is one of the easier explanations for diabetes.

However, there is the number of other implications and effects of this disease one of them being a low insulin count.

With a steady increase in the count of diabetics across the globe, the diagnosis of it is a wake up call for most people.

What Is Diabetes?

It is important for a person with diabetes to lead a healthy and balanced lifestyle, and that is where food plays a significant part.

I kept down a couple of dos and don’ts to keep your blood sugar level in check and live a life that is not managed by diabetes. These small things may make a big difference in your life!

Wheat Fiber Foods

Consume fibre rich food such as wheat bran, oats, green peas and bitter gourd to make up for the lack of other types of vitamins and minerals

.Add fruits with less natural sugar in your regular diet. Fruits such as papaya, guavas and also apples are great for diabetics.

Consume small meals at daily intervals as an erratic meal schedules results in erratic blood sugar levels.

Avoid consuming starchy saturated food, packaged food that contain trans fats and foods with high sugar content.

Avoid consuming and smoking as much as possible. However an occasion glass of wine here and there should do fine only if your sugar level allows.

Work out daily and religiously as maintain a slim and fit body is very important to control diabetes.

Never skip your regular dose of medication.

Maintain a food journal and keep track of what you consume and when. This will do you more best than you can think.

The symbol for World’s Diabetes day is a blue circle. The symbol goes superbly well with the message for the day.

In many cultures across the universe, a circle is a representation of life and good health. The colour blue is the colour of the United Nations flag and signifies the sky that unites us all.

Hence this blue circle symbol aims at uniting people worldwide to strongly overcome this pandemic!

Don’t you denounce sugar and rice as soon as your sugar levels shoot up?

    Hi ! I followed this diet for my 20 year old daughter for a week . She was diagnosed with LADA last month after a regular check up for weight loss . No other symptoms of diabetes as such. She was already underweight and has lost 2 kgs more. Doctor has told her to increase her intake for eg 2 chapatis and not cut down too much on fats or non veg. How do I do this balancing calories.

  19. Vybhav says:

    Thank you very much for sharing this diet plan ma’am. This’ll be followed by my mother. The doctor has suggested to follow a very low carb & a very low fat diet & I’m not sure if this plan suits the requirement. Pls let me know if following this plan shall suffice the need or not. Because, sometimes (rarely though) my moms sugar level shoots to 340 level (post food consumption) though she’s following a medium carb & fat diet (traditional south Indian dishes like chapati, dosa, idly, two varieties of water soaked sprouted dal like greengram, dal fry, radish/drumstick/brinjal/leafy/etc. curries) & after taking the tablets, numbers drop. This plan of your’s seems to be the perfect one but still, can you pls update me whether this plan can be followed by her or should there be any further changes made to this plan to fit the bill?? Thanks in advance & appreciate your work here..
