How A Diabetic Diet Can Help You Manage Your Blood Sugar

By James Steele

Following a diabetic diet does not limit you to only eating certain foods. This diet, which refers to what you’re eating, can be perfect for anyone.

Often, diabetics are told to eat foods that have a lower glycemic rating. Foods that have a low rating on the glycemic index don’t cause a huge spike in blood sugar levels. You want to avoid unstable blood sugar levels.

For those of you that do not know about the ABC component of the diabetic diet, read on. Blood chemistry and cardiovascular functions operating at healthy levels is the focus of this component. The three-month average of your blood sugar levels is measured in a hemoglobin A1c test which is the A factor. What is referred to as the B component measures your blood pressure. The last part, C, refers to your cholesterol profile and will consist of both HDL and LDL cholesterol levels. All three factors will be in the green if you are completely healthy.

It’s important to limit the amount of highly processed foods you eat because they are often high in calories, sugars, and unhealthy, saturated fats. It’s especially important for diabetics to avoid gaining excess weight. Because white sugar is highly processed, it mostly contains empty calories. Empty calories are almost immediately converted into fat and have no nutritional value. Burning them is the only way to prevent that from happening. Be sure you are reading the labels on everything you buy.

People with high cholesterol, as well as those with diabetes are often put on the TLC diet, which can help to control these conditions. The main focus of this diet is to reduce your intake of foods that can raise your cholesterol. You can help the process along by doing other things in your everyday life as well. Exercise can go a long way in helping you to control your weight, and it can also help reduce your blood pressure and cholesterol. As you may know, there are two types of cholesterol, and the kind you want to reduce is LDL cholesterol, the harmful kind. HDL, or good cholesterol, on the other hand, is something you should try to raise. If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, then naturally your doctor will have a lot of information available for you. As long as you watch your diet and follow your doctor’s advice, diabetes can be managed and its symptoms minimized. You will need to ensure that you pay attention to your diet so your condition does not get worse. Your meals must be chosen carefully, and you have to be aware of everything that’s included. It’s not so much a matter of following Diet A or Diet X. The challenge is to discover which foods keep your blood sugar at a safe level.
