Diabetic Diet Plan

About Diabetes:

A healthy eating diet plan provides a well-organised, nutritious way to reach your goals safely.

– Type 1 diabetes occurs when there is no insulin production in the pancreas.

– Type 2 diabetes occurs when high insulin resistance develops, which results because of high insulin production over a period.

High Glycemic Index (GI) foods stimulate high insulin production. Incorporating low GI foods into a balanced diet can be beneficial for maintaining healthy blood sugar levels and overall health.

Diary products, legumes, pasta and some fruits are usually low GI foods (<55 on the 100 point glucose scale)

Bread, breakfast cereals, rice, savoury snacks and potatoes are medium GI (56 to 69) to high GI ( >70) foods.

About Diabetic Diets:

A diabetic diet is a diet that is used by people with diabetes mellitus to minimise symptoms
and complications of long term elevations in the blood sugar. It is a healthy eating meal plan
that is naturally rich in nutrients and low in calories. The plan helps to control blood sugar
(blood glucose), manage weight and control heart disease risk factors like high blood
pressure and high blood fats.

When you consume extra calories and carbohydrates, blood sugar levels rise. If the blood
sugar level is not controlled, it can lead to hyperglycemia. Persisting high blood sugar levels
may lead to kidney, nerve and heart damage. For most people with type 2 diabetes, weight
loss also can make it easier to control blood sugar levels.
