April 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 118

Due to fast life and unhealthy food habits, diabetes is no more a disease which can be seen mostly in elderly people above 50 years of age. Today due to urbanization even people as young as 35 years can be seen suffering from this dreadful disease. Diabetes, as such, is not dangerous if it is managed properly, it is unmanaged diabetes which is really fatal and can lead to many health problems which at times are irreversible.

How can you manage your diabetes, the answer lies in the right food intake and matching exercises? Eating food is not bad, but burning those extra calories is very important. You will have to maintain the right body weight matching your height and physique. Today with the help of right food and matching exercise you can keep your blood sugar under control.

As we all know that there are two types diabetes, type one, and type two. Type one diabetes is normally seen in children. The pancreas does not release sufficient amount of insulin. The type two is normally seen in the adults; even though insulin production is good but the utilization is not adequate. Food intake plays a vital role in the management of diabetes. The intake of right food keeps the sugar level under control and bad eating will increase the sugar level.

There are many foods which can help you in the management of sugar level; the first one is to include sufficient fiber in your daily diet. Fruits which are good in diabetes and have rich fiber contents are papaya, orange, apples and strawberries. You can also include dry fruits in your daily diet like apricots and raisins; these are known sugar regulating agents. If possible reduce the intake of sea salt, if possible shift to rock salt which contains less quantity of sodium. Garlic, onions and leeks are known to be good in diabetes. You can have raw garlic early in the morning. Fenugreek is another important spice which can be added to your daily diet, you can have it as such and also use it as spice in your food regularly.

Broccoli is full of antioxidants; you can increase the intake of broccoli and garlic. Some people may not like to have juice of bitter gourd, but the juice is quite beneficial in regulating the sugar level. Reduce the intake of dairy products; whenever possible go for fatless dairy products. You must totally avoid the aerated drinks; these drinks in any case are harming. Eat small meals, may be after every two to three hours; this will keep your calorie intake in control. There is no substitute to exercise, do whatever exercise you enjoy most, it can be anything from jogging, running, cycling, swimming and even walking.
