The fiber and beta carotene content in carrots makes them extremely healthy. Carrots also have a number of other nutrients including Vitamins B8, K, A and C as well as iron, folate, potassium, copper and manganese.
Here are the benefits which these nutrients give to your body:
- Reduces cholesterol: Studies have shown that eating carrots lowers your blood cholesterol level. The most recent theory for why this happens is because carrots have a large amount of soluble fiber. This soluble fiber has been claimed to lower blood cholesterol levels.
- Chances of cancer reduced: Carrots have a lot of bioflavonoids and alpha carotene. Both of these have been said to lower the risk of cancer, especially lung cancer.
- Keeps your vision good: You must have heard from your parents that eating carrots is good for your eye health. While it is not true that they can cure any significant eye illnesses, they can prevent many illnesses caused by a vitamin A deficiency. They do this because beta-carotene which is there in carrots can be converted to Vitamin A. Vitamin A prevents include cataracts, night blindness as well as macular degeneration.
- Prevents memory loss: Beta-carotene is crucial for preventing memory loss. According to a recent study conducted by Harvard University, it was concluded that people who ate vegetables, such as carrots which contained beta-carotene had their chances of suffering from memory loss reduced.
- Diabetes prevention: Beta-carotene is an antioxidant in carrots, which lowers your risk of diabetes. It has been found that people with high levels of beta-carotene had 32% more insulin in their blood than people with low levels of beta-carotene.
- Improves bone health: Carrots also contain vitamin C and calcium, both of which are good for bone health. This is especially important for postmenopausal women who usually have a deficiency of calcium in their bodies.
Self-monitoring of blood glucose (smbg) is very crucial for those diabetics who are on insulin or on certain oral anti-diabetic drugs which can cause hypoglycemia. To achieve best glycemic control it is essential to know how your daily blood glucose levels are fluctuating in an entire day.
It is easier for a diabetes specialist to adjust drugs or to adjust insulin dose if good smbg record is maintained by the patient.
Normally we check fasting and 2 hr post prandial blood sugar levels in the lab for routine follow-up. There is a bright chance of sugar excursions in the other post meal readings which get unnoticed. Even in case of hba1c or glycated hemoglobin test we get an average result of blood glucose of last 3 months.
In practice, I have seen several patients who had to fast and post prandial blood glucose lab tests in the normal range but hba1c levels below 7 is not achieved because they might have high blood sugars in other post meals which have got unnoticed.
To achieve the best blood glycemic control it is important to control blood sugar levels within normal limits during the entire day and not just fasting or post breakfast levels.
Interpretation of smbg chart:
In the above image of smbg chart, I have mentioned 7 point charting system where you can fill your blood glucometer readings which you take on several spots in an entire day.
Seven points includes:
Fasting or before breakfast reading
2 hrs after breakfast
2 hrs after lunch
2 hrs after dinner or bedtime
At mid night 3.00 am
This seven point smbg charting approximately covers entire day glucose fluctuations to some extent (of course not as accurate as cgms).
I have also mentioned a comment column in the above smbg chart where you can note down change in food or change in insulin dose or any other changes that you have made which probably caused unusual readings like for example if hypoglycemia occurs at before lunch reading and you have skipped breakfast or had very little snack at breakfast you can mention that.
You do not need to check daily all the 7 points, you can check any one or 2 points randomly depending upon your sugar control.
More uncontrolled blood sugars require more frequent smbg glucometer monitoring.
Monitoring of blood glucose at home in case of diabetic pregnancy or gestational diabetes is also important where frequent monitoring and smbg charting of glucometer readings helps a lot to the patient.
I hope this article will help you to control your blood sugar levels more efficiently.
If you find that some of the post-meal or pre-meal readings are high or low, please consult your diabetologist with smbg chart to adjust your medication or insulin dosage.
