Diabetes 'Living in health
Many people are already starting to catch up with the knowledge that your energy is directly proportional to what you put into your body (A.K.A. food).
Studies have shown that if you eat a high "raw" vegetable diet, your energy will increase tenfold and you will have more vibrant health in your life. It is recommended to eat as most vegetables as you can. Once you have tried this, and once you have felt the improved wellness of following a healthy diet, it will be hard to go back.
When people say they are tired, that they have back or neck pains, when they say they caught a cold, this are all sympthoms of having your PH balance lowered. In return, your body starts to accumulate more and more cholesterol as a defense mechanism to "trap" the acidity of your body. This in return starts to cause diseases.
This is when diabetes comes in. 80% of the diabetic population are obese. One of the main goals in the diabetes diet is to lower your weight and maintain it. You must keep this is mind.
In addition to bringing you to your ideal weight, the purpose of your diet is to maintain regular glucose levels in your body, to protect your heart by maintaining healthy lipid (cholesterol and triglyceride)levels, and to control blood pressure.
These are the basic guidelines and purpose of a diabetic diet but there are other things you want to consider, depending on what type of diabetes are you treating and the specific conditions of each person.
For example, a simple heart healthy diet can work great for people with type 2 diabetes, but a type 1 diabetes person may require a different kind of diet. These are things your doctor or nutritionist will design specifically for you.
What a person may not know, is that when studies have been conducted on similar people with different diets, the most important factor in getting great results was not the diet itself. The biggest most important factor in maintaining good health lies in being attentive and focused on the diet itself. In other words, any healthy diet works if patients work at it.
Intricate dietary methods are available for control of blood sugar in type 1 and more severe type 2 diabetes. If one of these approaches works in controlling glucose levels, there is no reason to choose another. Each of them can be effective, but because regulating diabetes is an individual situation, everyone with this condition should get help from a dietary professional in selecting the best method. You must start to live in health.
