Care in diabetes/Treatments for all types of diabetes
An important part of managing diabetes — as well as your overall health — is maintaining a healthy weight through a healthy diet and exercise plan:
- Healthy eating. Adherence to a diabetic diet is a critical aspect of controlling blood sugar in people with diabetes. When considering an ideal diabetic diet, a number of factors must be taken into consideration, including the amount and type of carbohydrates consumed as well as the amount of fiber, fat, and protein contained in foods. Fruits, vegetables and whole grains-foods that are high in nutrition and fiber and low in fats and calories should be important parts of diet. Glycemic index and glycemic load are further considerations. Foods with low glycemic index and load raise blood sugar more slowly than high glycemic index/load foods. Glycemic index refers to a standardized measurement, while glycemic load takes a typical portion size into account.
It’s a really challenging condition what and how much to eat. For healthy goals, food preferences and lifestyle you should concern with a registered dietitian, who can create a meal plan.
Diet should be
- nutritious, and
- low in fat, cholesterol, and simple sugars.
- Physical activity. People with diabetes needs a regular exercise in which their blood sugar level remain normal. Because exercise helps to use up the glucose or sugar in our body cell to fulfill energy’s needs. A regular exercise also lower down the need of body for insulin. It is important to make exercise a part of your daily routine. For the sake of this purpose choose activities you enjoy, such as walking, swimming or biking. What’s most important is making physical activity part of your daily routine. At least 30 minutes walk should be a part of daily routine. If you have physical activity on daily basis, you will have feeling of no diabetes.
