How To Manage Your Diet If You Have Diabetes

By Richard Horowitz

For a variety of reasons, including the modern diet, more people than ever are suffering from diabetes. While diet and nutrition is important for everyone, it's especially critical if you have any type of blood sugar problems, including diabetes of course. You can get expert advice from your doctor, who is familiar with your medical history. Even when you know how you should be eating, however, it's not always easy to stick to that diet. The right diet, however, can make a big difference in your health, and it can even help to control diabetes. Diabetes is serious disease, but you can lessen many of its symptoms by making some modifications in your diet, as we'll be covering in this article.

One factor you should always be looking at before you eat anything is the glycemic index. This index gives you an easy system to find out, at a single glance at the number, if something is safe for you to eat. If you want to know how a food will affect your blood sugar (and you have to know this as a diabetic), you'd use the glycemic index. The main consideration has to do with the kind of carbohydrates the food is composed of. You can ask your doctor, nutritionist or other medical practitioner for more information about this. If you want to eat as healthy as possible, you should always consult a glycemic index table when shopping or cooking your meals.

At one time, diabetics were usually told that they should stay away from sugar as a strict rule. Depending on your doctor, you may have permission to consume a certain amount of sugar, although it's something that you have to be careful with. Carbohydrates (or starches) and sugar really impact the blood sugar in the same way, so one isn't any worse than the other. Foods that are carbohydrates or starches will raise your blood sugar level the same way sweets do. A little bit of foods containing sugar won't harm you, as long as you don't eat large portions of them or too frequently. The best diet for you is an individual matter, and your medical practitioner can tell you how much sugar it's safe to consume right now.

One diet that's often recommended for diabetics and anyone with high cholesterol is the TLC diet. By following this diet, you can bring your cholesterol under control, which is especially important for diabetics. While you're watching your diet, of course, you should also be making other changes that will support this. By exercising consistently, you can help to reduce your weight as well as your cholesterol levels and blood pressure. You don't want to decrease all types of cholesterol, only the "bad" kind, or LDL. There's also a good kind of cholesterol, HDL, which you want to increase.

Diabetes can take a few different forms, and your doctor will advise you regarding the best approach to take. Having diabetes is a challenge, but it can be controlled with a combination of medicine and diet. It's crucial to monitor your diet at all times, as this can be a major factor in how well you manage your illness. Whether you cook for yourself or eat out, you need to be conscious of everything you're eating. The specific diet you follow isn't really the issue, though some may work better for you than others. What counts most of all is maintaining a healthy blood sugar level at all times.
