Dietary Management For Diabetes
DIETARY MANAGEMENT:
Your blood sugar level in your blood is closely connected to what you eat, so good and balanced nutrition is most important for living a healthy life with diabetes. Correct choice of food and in appropriate amount will help you to control your blood sugar levels, thus further preventing or delaying the complications. There is no particular diet that will suit everyone; it depends on the treatment, individual sensitivity and on the complication of the disease. So consult your physician before implementing any diet plans.
 
DO'S:

- Consume bitter gourd (karela), string beans (Chaulee), cucumber (kakadi), onions and garlic which are very beneficial for diabetics.

- Consume protein more from plant sources then animal sources.
- Prefer fresh fish or soy protein to poultry or meat; consume fish not more then 2 servings per week.

- Consume Polyunsaturated fats (PUFA), and monounsaturated fats instead of saturated fats and cholesterol.
- Monounsaturated fats are mostly present in olive, canola, and peanut oils and in most nuts.
- Consume not more then 5gm of fats, as PUFA, monounsaturated fats or saturated fats they all provide same amount of calories, though they are different in kind.
• Consume 3-4 nuts regularly as they are high in proteins, fibers and also PUFA
• Consume bitter gourd (karela) or have ½ cup or more of bitter gourd juice every day.
