Too Much Fat Intake Can Be Related To Rising Levels Of Sugar

By Jane Withers

A healthy diet is an important part of overall health and well-being. Generally, a healthy diet is also a low-fat diet. Consumption of too much fat can lead to unhealthy weight gain and to heart disease. For diabetics, the need to limit fat intake is even more pronounced, because consumption of too much fat can also have a negative effect on blood sugar.

There are different types of fats, with some being less healthy than others. It's important to limit fat intake regardless of type of course. But, there are good fats and bad fats, as well as saturated and unsaturated fats. Different fats affect the body in different ways.

Interestingly, the effect of fat consumption on blood sugar is not immediately obvious. When you eat a high-fat meal, your blood sugar will not necessarily spike right away. Fats slow down the digestion of carbohydrates, however. Hours after you have eaten, you may experience elevated blood sugar as a result.

Managing this delayed elevation in blood sugar can be tricky. Most of the time, foods that affect blood sugar do so much more quickly.

Be sure to carefully read labels on foods, to ensure that the majority of your fat intake is healthier unsaturated fat or oil. These are the healthier fats, although you should still consume them in moderation.

If you do consume too much fat, even healthy fat, you will gain weight. Excess weight also affects blood sugar. When you have too much body weight, this taxes your body systems and impacts its use of insulin.

You can find healthy fats in a variety of foods: sesame seeds and oil, olives and olive oil, peanuts and peanut butter, avocados and avocado oil, salmon. Peanuts and peanut butter, and salmon, are also excellent sources of protein.

For more detailed information on types of fats and correct portion size, consult your family physician.
