A diabetic must always be careful about the diet. Apart from being wary of the sugar intake, one must also be watchful of the fat proportion in meals. Excess fat affects diabetes adversely.

 

Addition of fat to food brings along a high density of calories with it. Due to excess fat, the body becomes less responsive to insulin leading to type 2 diabetes. A lot of fat in the system, further, leads to cardiovascular diseases and hypertension.

 

Thus, obese people are more prone to the risk of having diabetes.

 

There are various measures to prevent and control diabetes due to high fat.

  • Fried food, butter, margarine must be replaced with low fat options such as olive oil, nuts, oats, avocados that contain omega-3 fatty acids that help prevent heart diseases.
  • The diet should be rich in fresh fruits and vegetables that carry with them nutrients needed by the body sans any unwanted fats.
  • A daily cardio-vascular exercise regime, such as a brisk walk or a job would prove helpful in burning down the excess fat and in keeping heart diseases at bay. It also helps regulate insulin level and keep diabetes under control.
