Learn About Diabetes

Diabetes is a disorder characterized by excess amount of blood glucose or blood sugar. This occurs due to lack of the hormone insulin in the body or because he insulin that is present in the body is not absorbed by the body. 

Before your diabetes was diagnosed, you may have been more thirsty than usual. It is a good idea to avoid sugary drinks and fruit juices as a way of quenching thirst. They can put blood glucose levels up very high and very quickly, and can make you gain weight in the long term. Instead, drink water, sugar free and diet soft drinks. Tea and coffee are still OK to include, too.
Avoid foods labelled ‘diabetic’ or ‘suitable for diabetics’. These foods contain similar amounts of calories and fat, and they can affect your blood glucose levels. They are usually more expensive and can have a laxative effect. Stick to your usual foods. If you want to have an occasional treat, go for your normal treats and watch your portions.

 There are two types of diabetes: 
 Type 1 diabetes called insulin dependent diabetes that usually affects children and teenagers.
Type 2 that was previously called non-insulin dependent diabetes and usually affects adults. If left untreated, high glucose levels can damage blood vessels, posing great health problems in the long run.

What should I eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner?


Having diabetes doesn't stop you from enjoying your usual foods but it's important to make healthier choices more often. Why not try one of these?

Breakfast

  • a bowl of cereal with semi-skimmed milk
  • 2 slices of wholegrain toast with spread and/or jam
  • a fat-free yogurt and fruit.

Lunch

  • a chicken or ham salad sandwich...
  • a small pasta salad...
  • soup and a roll...
...with a piece of fruit and a diet or fat-free yogurt

Dinner
