Control The Type-2 Diabetes By Changing Diet And Lifestyle!

Ph.D(Clinical Nutrition), M.Sc(Foods&Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
Control The Type-2 Diabetes By Changing Diet And Lifestyle!

Diabetes is a lifestyle disease, with the incidence mainly increased by changing lifestyles including food habits and sedentary way of life. How does it happen? The sugar that is consumed is metabolized by a hormone known as insulin. Diabetes can occur due to two reasons:

  • Reduced amount of insulin production
  • Increased amount of sugar levels beyond what the produced insulin can metabolize.

Risk factors: Diabetes can be genetic, but in most cases, it is acquired and the following are risk factors for the same.

  • Ethnicity (Hispanics, Latino Americans, Afro-Americans, etc.)
  • Dietary habits including excessive consumption of sugar(s), refined foods, processed foods
  • Impaired glucose tolerance
  • Developing resistance to insulin (thereby increased sugar levels)
  • Decreased amount of dietary fiber

Symptoms:

Management through Lifestyle changes:
Diabetes 1 which requires insulin is not preventable but type 2 diabetes is easily manageable through lifestyle changes. This can prolong the onset of getting diabetes and reduce the severity of the disease. It also helps reduce complications. This would require a combination of diet, lifestyle changes, and healthcare.
Diet:

  • Sugars are the main culprit, and refined sugar consumption should be reduced.
  • Oils, white rice, refined flour, processed foods, packaged foods, canned foods, etc. also to be reduced.
  • Increase the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables. This helps reduce calories and also increase fiber consumption.
  • When it comes to fats, increase consumption of unsaturated fatty acids and reduce saturated fatty acids.
  • Sufficient hydration ensures the toxins are washed off and the tissues are well hydrated.
  • Pack the diet with essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Diabetes is considered a chronic inflammatory process, and including antioxidants in your diet ensures that the buildup of toxins is reduced and inflammation is controlled.
  • Avoid eating large portions at any meal. Small, frequent meals ensure the body receives an even spread of calories.
  • The size of the meal should reduce as the day goes along.

Lifestyle:

  • A routine exercise regimen helps in weight management, improved insulin function, and reducing fat accumulation. Pick what works for you - jogging, cycling, running, swimming, brisk walking, etc.
  • Quitting smoking has multiple benefits, and improved diabetes control is just one.
  • Weight management: Weight needs to be constantly monitored for deviations and immediate course corrections to be done
  • Stress management: Stress is a risk factor for diabetes and controlling stress helps improve diabetes control
  • Vigilance and Monitoring: Sugar levels need to be constantly monitored. Higher sugar levels or missed doses should be immediately corrected.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?

Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?
Hello, When T2 diabetes goes on for very long time say 25 to 30 years or longer, then because of persistent hyperglycemia and lipotoxicity beta cells get affected and. Over the years cell mass is lost and most of the T2 patients end up on insulin in later years of their life. Thanks.

I'm a sugar patient, frequently I'm getting (every month) acidity. How do I get rid of it?

Mr. Lybrate-user, hyperacidity may be occurring either due to food habits, smoking, alcohol, excess tea or coffee. At times remaining on empty stomach for long time also can cause that. To reduce acidity you may take small quantity of food more frequently (every 2 - 3 hrs), total intake not exceed the recommended daily allowance. Plus avoiding all the above mentioned triggers. Exercise also helps in controlling acidity. There are antacids and other drugs which may be useful. Some times a bacterium h pylori could be also responsible. Plus good control of diabetes is also very important.

I am 74 years. I had long history of uncontrooled diabetes and it is under control with allopathic medication for 2 years. I am unable to slep at night due to tingling in both legs-caugh and thighs. When I have gas due to constipation even during day I have the tingling pain in both legs. I feel comfort when I massage in back of hip at sciatic nerve centre. I need advise how to have naturopathic or alternate medicine cure. I am afraid of neuro surgeons as the medication will spoil my health.

You apparently have peripheral neuropathy due to diabetes. There are good vitamin tablets which will control your tinging. Obviously naturopathy will not help. Diabetes affects food toe to head all or organs. Read my article in health tips. Take neurobion forte tab 1-0-1 and dulcolax for constipation. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.
