Whether it’s to reduce the risk of diabetes or to stay healthy with diabetes, diet plays a critical role to determine the amount of sugar we take in.

If you are a diabetic; or you have a family member or friend with diabetes, insulin or other medicines can sometimes cause low blood sugar. Identify your HbA1c test score, mean blood and glucose level to know if your blood glucose is in the optimum level. For instance, carbohydrates get digested to sugar or glucose and enter the blood stream, thus becoming a primary source of energy for body cells, particularly brain and muscles. In fact, it’s recommended that half the diabetic diet plate of each meal be fruits and vegetables. The ones rich in simple carbohydrates are called high glycaemic index fruits, and these can increase our sugar levels. You may either be allowed a smaller portion of high glycaemic index fruit or a relatively larger portion of low glycaemic index fruit. Let our healthcare team help you with how to recognize such episodes and give appropriate immediate care.

The importance of diet for a person with diabetes is not only limited to carbohydrates or fats, but extends to fibre, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, etc. A balanced diabetic diet is having right amount of food which meets your body’s nutritional demands.
