Keeping the blood glucose level in control is the main target of a diabetic patient. For that, what all can a diabetes patient do? A diabetes patient must strictly follow a diet plan.
A diabetic diet plan doesn’t mean you have to follow a boring meal plan. To maintain the blood sugar in control, following a proper diet is essential. It is not a difficult task to come out of diabetes when you have a clear plan.
Regular exercise and fitness have a key role to play here. So, along with diabetes medicine, focus on diet and fitness. You can control diabetes to some extent by stopping certain food intake.
But sorting out the best diet for diabetes is not simple. Thus it is better to consult your physician to know about diabetes nutrition. Get help, to know what to eat, when to eat and, how much to eat.
Before beginning your diabetes nutrition, understand the fact that it is not fasting or completely avoiding your favorite food. To keep your blood sugar in control, you need to limit the quantity of what you eat. But the right knowledge and information are crucial before you begin. We are here to help you with that.
You don’t need to worry thinking you can’t eat what you like. As a diabetic patient, reducing your sugar level is crucial to get saved from other complications. So, keep your mind ready to adapt to the best diet plan.
As per the suggestion from your dietitian, prepare a good list of a meal plan. Do some research to know more about how to prepare tasty meal plans. In a nutshell, you are going to be on a happy and complete diabetic diet.
Keep a close check on your carbs intake.
More intake of carbohydrates is a risk for patients with diabetes. The carbs get converted to glucose and more intake increases sugar level. But it doesn’t mean you have to completely avoid it. If the glucose level goes low, then it is a harmful situation. Thus, know what kind of food and how many carbs to intake in a day.
The most important thing to check is that consume carbohydrates that are nutrient-rich, fiber-rich, vitamins, etc. Avoid those that have sugar, unhealthy fats and sodium. Depending on your ‘carbohydrate/carb counting’, your physician can prepare your best diet for diabetes.
Beware of low glucose levels & be safe when it is high!
The diabetes nutrition plan strictly suggests checking the glucose level. There are chances for a condition called hypoglycemia, where your glucose level lowers. Thus a diabetic patient must keep the right balance. It happens after tiring workouts, insulin injections, skipping meals, etc.
Also, a patient with type 1 diabetes must avoid physical exercise if they have ketones in their body. Because at this time, the glucose level can go high. Thus it is advised to perform periodic monitoring of your blood sugar level.
