Eating Right is a Must if You Have Diabetes
Perhaps the most challenging part of finding out you have Type 2 Diabetes is changing your diet, but it doesn't have to be life altering in a bad way. By remembering to eat more vegetables, fruits, and lean meats, avoiding foods high in sugar, and eat fewer carbohydrates you will be amazed at how your body will respond. It is important to try to eat at the same time every day. Some great ideas for delicious diabetes friendly meals in fewer than 30 minutes can be found by visiting our recipes page.
Unfortunately, many people with diabetes do not test and maintain proper blood sugar levels. According to a study from the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, more than two-thirds of the over 157,000 people with diabetes were not sufficiently managing their blood sugar. The American Diabetes Association recommends an A1C target of 7%, adding that levels need to be personalized based on the patient's age, and other medical conditions, such as how long they have had diabetes or whether they are even aware they have it.
People with Type 2 Diabetes Need to Be Active
Although some people with diabetes need to use insulin pumps or take oral medications, sometimes, making simple diet changes and becoming more active can effectively treat people with diabetes. Exercising can be tough at first, but is greatly rewarding. It is a chance to change the quality of your life forever. One of the most important things to remember when newly diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes is that consistency is very important in order for you to live in harmony with diabetes. The key is to make everything routine- exercise, diet, and blood sugar levels.
