There are many myths about diabetes, especially related to what you can eat and what you can’t. Lots of people think that diabetics shouldn’t eat sweets at all. This is not true. Similarly, all carbs and fats are not bad. A high protein diet is also not required and there are no special diabetic meals. So, what should you as a diabetic, eat to combat diabetes? Read on to find out:
- Low glycemic index foods: Complex carbs are best for you as they limit the amount of sugar released into your blood stream and are digested more slowly and prevent your body from releasing too much insulin. These are also called low GI foods as well as slow-release carbs and are also high in fibre. Processed carbs like white bread, pasta, and rice, as well as sodas, packaged meals, and snacks must be junked. These are all called high glycemic index (GI) foods and spike your blood sugar.
- Manage sugar wisely: Diabetes doesn’t mean that you can’t eat sugar or desserts. It means you have to be smart with sugar, like
- Take smaller servings of your favourite desserts as they are best eaten in moderation.
- Reduce the sugar in your diet slowly rather than at once. This will give your taste buds some time to adjust, reducing sugar cravings.
- If you want to eat dessert, hold back on carbs in a meal. Balance out meals so that you don’t eat too many carb-heavy foods.
- Add some healthy fat to your diet, as it slows down the digestive process, which means that your blood sugar levels don’t spike as quickly.
- Eat sweets along with a meal and not alone: Sweets eaten alone can spike your blood sugar levels a lot.
- Don’t drink alcohol: Alcohol is full of calories and carbs and cocktails are loaded with sugar. Alcohol can interfere with diabetes medication and insulin, as well.
- Avoid junk, soft drinks, soda and juices: They are all packed with sugar.
- Avoid processed or packaged foods: These are loaded with hidden sugars. Eat food cooked at home.
- Remember high protein diets are not always good: Studies have shown that if you eat too much protein, especially animal protein, you may become insulin resistant. A healthy diet for diabetics includes protein, carbohydrates, and fats for the body to function properly.
- Eat more of these
- And avoid foods like
Remember, your overall eating patterns are very important. It’s also important to eat at regular intervals and avoid missing meals.

Today my topic of discussion is regarding diabetes mellitus. Diabetes is one of the most talk about disease across the world, especially in India. WHO estimated that 80% of diabetes occurs in lower and middle income guys. India has more great result 50 million in term Type-2 diabetics which is called diabetes mellitus. And this is increasing in all mainly incidence in India. Now let me know what is diabetes, diabetes is a disease creates by hypoglycemia and glycosuria that means increase in blood sugar level and appearance of sugar in urine. It occurs due to deficient production or deficient absorption of insulin which comes in the pancreas. Now what are the types of diabetes, there are 4 types of diabetes, one is Type 1 Diabetes which is naturally called insulin-dependent diabetes, it occurs insulin childhood, it is insulin dependent, it usually asymptomatic, it is due to pancreas not able to produce sufficient insulin. Second is type 2 diabetes mellitus, it is a most common, it occurs in adulthood, it occurs due to deficient absorption of insulin, secondly, it also occurs due to change in lifestyle, not adequate exercise and diet patterns. Third is gestational diabetes, gestational diabetes is the diabetes increase in blood sugar level during pregnancy and such cases are likely to go into type 2 diabetes mellitus in the letustis, if they are not already suffering from diabetes before these. Last is pre-diabetes, Pre-diabetes is a condition in which blood sugar level is not that much high enough to be classified in Type 1 and Type 2. What are the symptoms of diabetes? Diabetes symptoms are usually classified as a track Polyuria, Polydipsia, Polyphagia which means increasing urination, increase in thirst and increase in appetite. Secondly, patient complaint of blurring of vision, they complaint of high blood sugar level, wound is not healing despite taking treatment. They may come with the nausea, vomiting, loss of weight, fatigue and where is may come with Sexual problems, may come with infections and they may come with skin problems. Secondly Dash investigate a case of diabetes there are three tests, four tests, mainly fasting blood sugar and postprandial blood sugar, fasting blood sugar is taken under is everybody knows, postprandial Dash 2 hours after breakfast heavy breakfast or after taking glucose Dash, which is normally 120 to 160 milligrams. Next is Oral GTT which is positive grade control the milligrams and continuous to this further and the last is HbA1C test which is the most important test then insulin which is like it Hemoglobin level, this gives the level of blood sugar level for the past 2 to 3 months that is 8 weeks to 12 weeks. How the diabetes is transmitted? Diabetes transmitted by genetic, due to recently due to change in Lifestyle, fat, diet, and poor exercise and family history, due to hypertension patient with hypertension, cardiovascular diseases also likely to develop diabetes. Now next is how will you prevent or control the diabetes, prevention starts with changing Lifestyle, diet pattern, exercise and taking care of body, taking care of skin and all other things and what are the complications of diabetes, complications it can affect major target organs like eye, kidney, liver, skin, nervous system and also causes hypertension and cardiovascular diseases and strokes. Is diabetes is curable everybody ask, unfortunately there is not any cure for diabetes but maintaining good exercise, healthy lifestyle, diet and taking medication on regular time you may lead a normal healthy life in diabetes. It is such a big topic, difficult to cover everything in short time.
