For the newly diagnosed with Diabetes I have started a series of “mini” articles about Diabetes and some of the things that you need to know or learn.
Since I am using information from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, I’ll follow their guide and give you a link to where you can find more information instead of searching!
Here is an excerpt:
Eating and Diabetes
You can take good care of yourself and your diabetes by learning
- what to eat
- how much to eat
- when to eat
Making wise food choices can help you
- feel good every day
- lose weight if you need to
- lower your risk for heart disease, stroke, and other problems caused by diabetes
Healthful eating helps keep your blood glucose, also called blood sugar, in your target range. Physical activity and, if needed, diabetes medicines also help. The diabetes target range is the blood glucose level suggested by diabetes experts for good health. You can help prevent health problems by keeping your blood glucose levels on target.
A good guide except it doesn’t have any details!
So here is some help. For the What, When and How Much to Eat just Click Here.…go read and close the page and you will come back here to continue on!
Now for some interesting information.
If you read and found out what you needed to know and got started
(you have to do it yourself because no one else bends your elbow and puts things in your mouth!)
then You have begun your journey to feeling better, losing weight and lowering your risk for all those wonderful diseases brought on by uncontrolled Diabetes.
I’ll be writing more “Mini Articles” so if there is something you want to know more about, ask in the comment box and I’ll do my best to get you an answer.
