Dietary amendments for type 2 diabetics

It’s not just what you eat that affects your blood sugar levels, but how much you eat and when you eat it. Eat small, frequent meals instead of large ones. Also, include more complex carbohydrates (low/medium glycaemic index foods) in your diet. This will help keep your blood sugar levels steady. Diabetics should eat more foods like fruits, vegetables, seeds, oats and whole-grain products which improve glucose tolerance.

Focus on exercise
Most people just focus on diet to manage diabetes which is wrong. An all-round approach with focus on exercise is also needed. Studies have shown that glucose is metabolised better in the body when you exercise. More glucose is forced out of the blood stream and into the cells where it is used for producing more energy. Exercise increases the body’s efficiency because it increases the tissue sensitivity to insulin in patients suffering from type 2 diabetes. When you are exercising, your muscles are in use, so they use up more blood glucose, helping to reduce blood sugar levels. Also, you lose calories when you exercise which helps in weight loss, and helps improve insulin sensitivity. more
