Diabetes, as defined by medical practitioners, is a body-condition where the pancreas fails to secrete insulin in the required amount for it to let the sugar be absorbed by the cells of the body and be used as energy. Nutrition, therefore, plays a vital role in conditioning the inner system for an overall development.

 

A diabetic patient must follow a lifestyle to maintain a healthy heart and kidney. The following dietary tips might just come handy:

  • Eat in moderation and at regular intervals. This would maintain the sugar-levels in the body. Increase the intake of nutritional food items like whole grains, vegetables, sprouts, skimmed milk, protein, etc. to avoid unnecessary weight-fluctuations. The best way is to consult a doctor suitable for your own body type.

  • Avoid carbonated drinks, alcohol, egg-yolk or items high in saturated fats. Substitute these with unsaturated fats found in nuts, olive oil, avocados and omega-3 fatty acids that fight inflammation and help to keep the brain and the heart healthy.
  • Always remember, for a diabetic, the consumption of food is directly proportional to the amount of sugar in the blood. It is, therefore, necessary to regulate the diet to suit the blood sugar level.
