What is healthy eating for diabetics? For diabetics eating right isn’t a choice but is part of their lives. Without the proper food and health concern the diabetic’s body will suffer damage and their life will be short and very miserable. Diabetes is a very serious non-communicable disease that is currently spreading over the United States and the entire world. Today’s sugary stuffed filled food and sweet dessert foods and the ability for diabetics to live longer lives and reproduce is only gasoline to the already massive firestorm. Diabetes is a non-communicable permanently damaging disease where the person’s body is not getting the required amounts of vital chemical called insulin. This absolutely necessary chemical/hormone called insulin hormones are produced by the main pancreas organ. For some unknown medical reasons the pancreas organ will stop or slow in construction of this chemical/hormone. This chemical/hormone is used by the body’s endocrine systems to transform the blood sugar (blood glucose) in the blood into fuel that the cells are able to use. Without the proper amounts of this necessary blood sugar changing chemical/hormone the blood glucose levels in the blood stream begin to rise to extremely high levels. Once they reach a certain high level the body organs begins to suffer cell damage to most systems. The major cell damage most commonly associated with high levels is severe nerve cell damage, heart cell damage, kidney cell damage, and severe eye cell damage. But this can all be avoided if the diabetic can drop their high blood sugar amounts and keep it at that lower blood sugar level. So what is healthy eating for diabetics?
Healthy eating for diabetes goes by one main rule. Avoid anything that is white. Breads and potatoes are examples of this rule. These foods are stuffed of complex sugar and will drive your blood sugar level skyward. So talk to your doctor about healthy eating for diabetics.
