Patients having diabetes often tend to break their rules of dedicated medicine intake and proper diabetics diet as they heavily feel forceful in following the rules. However some ‘Do’s’ and ‘Don’ts’ are still recommended as it will only take some consistent and dedicated efforts to follow them. Once correctly followed I’m sure they will laud the benefits that each of them holds and keep away from any further associated problems.
Plan a diabetic diet:
Lets first cover up the ‘Don’ts’
1. Say ‘No’ to alcohol avoiding it by all means. Artificially sweetened beverages, juices or even energy drinks should be restricted and could be replaced with a non-sweetened natural orange juice. Replacing such alcoholic or soft drinks with citrus or herbal freshly prepared juices preferably those with low glycemic index such as apples or pineapples would suit the cause.
2. Diabetic patients should by and far avoid having red meat. Also do not eat liver or any other organ meat as might shoot up your blood sugar levels more.
3. Do not eat fried food more especially fried potato chips or anything that contains too much of oil. The ‘oil’ factor here needs a primary concern as its best to avoid groundnut oil or any sweetened oil which is harmful for diabetic patients.
4. Stay away from any food which contains sodium something like Chinese food which use MSG’s as their main ingredients.
5. While you may feel that everything with you is running fine even then Do Not delay in getting your blood sugar levels regularly checked up Do Not be complacent in meeting a diet nutritionist if a need be so.
6. Strictly avoid condiments and foods that are high in calorie content. Watch out for foods such as ketchups or sweetened chilly sauces instead go for a mustard sauce in your snack list if you so desire for one.
Now here are some helpful ‘Do’s’ as well
1. The very step to the Do’s in your list is having a healthy and a ‘sugar-free’ diet especially fruits with low glycemic levels and green leafy vegetables rich in minerals and iron.
2. When it comes to eating non-vegetarian diet go for baked or steamed fishes and rotisserie chicken especially the ones having leanest cuts. Try having more of baked stuff than the fried ones. You can find a many diabetic recipes for that.
3. Get in to the habit of in taking freshly prepared fruit and herbal juices such as a mixed fruit and vegetable juice that are easy to drink such as a concoction of carrot, spinach, apples, bitter gourd and basil. Bring in more variety in your fruit and vegetable intake such as healthy salads and snacks.
4. Chappatis made out of wheat, soybean and gram flour could add in to your routine as it is rich in iron, minerals and proteins assimilating the increased blood sugar levels.
5. Even if it costs a bit try meeting your doctor or nutritionist regularly for your satisfaction and a risk free life.
These are some of diabetes treatment that should be apply.
