Having Diabetes Doesn’t Mean You Must Eat Rabbit Food
After being diagnosed with diabetes, many questions arise about the lifestyle changes needed to successfully manage the disease. This is especially true regarding diagnoses of type 2 diabetes and diet suggestions. But, there is a lot of information out there on what to eat, what to avoid like the plague, and what you can sneak in every now and then as an indulgent treat, so it’s completely understandable to become so perplexed that you either wing it or give up and just eat whatever you want.
To be frank, those are the worst possible things diabetics can do, since regular and properly managed meals are key to maintaining glycemic control and reducing the risk for complications for those with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Regular visits with a physician, medication, exercise are all significant ways to reign in blood glucose levels, and a proportioned vigilant diet is crucial, with some meals having more of an impact than others on health.
