The Good, the bad and the ugly: Sugar and Diabetes

By Eva A. Greene

Diabetes has struck many people all over the world. The worst bit of this disease is that most people wouldn't even know that they have it because most of the symptoms are not regarded as serious until it's too late. But the field of medicine has made many advances in treating this dreadful disease and one of which is the help of food.

Sugar or glucose is the body's primary source of energy. It helps the body move, digest food, think; it basically keeps us alive. Good as sugar may be for our bodies, too much of the stuff can make us sick and can even kill us. But the body controls it with insulin. Unfortunately, diabetics have trouble making insulin or are unable to use it well which leaves the blood rich in sugar. There are many ways to help treat it though like medications and insulin injections. But simply changing one's lifestyle habits can greatly help in preventing or delaying the symptoms of diabetes. And following a diabetic meal plan is one of those simple changes.

A contributor in preventing or delaying diabetes is proper nutrition. One diet plan people recommend is the low glycemic diet. Glycemic index or Gi is how carbs in food affect sugar levels in the body. Basically, a low glycemic diet is very favorable for diabetics because sugar fluctuations are very minimal and also body fat index would also be low allaying the risk for heart disease. But following a diet plan can get tiring especially with so much temptations outside the home.

A diabetic diet plan is not something that any diabetic would like to follow because it can be intimidating to create and even harder to follow and with the so many processed foods and restaurants out there, diabetics can easily stray away from the right path. But there are ways to make dieting fun and here are some tips on how. One way is to modify your favorite recipes according to your diabetic needs. This method encourages creativity and can even involve the family. Another is creating your own dishes which allow you to find alternatives for certain ingredients and cook up really good food. However you see it dieting should not be taken as a burden but treat it as a fun activity with loads of benefits.

It is important to note that as of now, there is no cure for diabetes. Many medical advances have been made but the cure still eludes us. But that doesn't mean that we cannot prevent the disease. We can. Diet is just one aspect in treating and preventing the disease. Lifestyle changes are also important like proper consistent exercise and stopping smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. Not only can these prevent diabetes but also other diseases like cardiac problems and even cancer.

Diabetics can still live a happy normal life. Sacrifices are to be made but everything good thing in life requires that and the payoff is totally worth it.
