Living With Diabetes

Lifestyle Changes For People Suffering From Diabeties

Diabeties is defined as a group of disorders of the human body to produce enough Insulin to regulate the breakdown of the blood sugar in the human body. It's normally categorized in two main categories– Type I, Type II diabeties. Type II diabeties is also called adult onset or non-insulin dependent diabeties and it starts occurring when most of the muscles and other organs of the body stop utilizing Insulin to breakdown sugar. It's caused by obesity and environmental factors. In most cases, it's quite dangerous because it can lead to Type I diabeties.

There is no cure for diabeties except for leading a healthy lifestyle so that it may prolong one's life. After being diagnosed with diabeties, certain necessary changes must be incorporated in one's life starting with the type of diet. Gone are the days when eating fatty, high cholesterol and high protein foods was considered to be healthy. Instead of those types of foods one must take fiber-rich foods in the form of whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables and also limit the intake of salt.

Only a balanced diet will not have an effect until its not combined with a weight control and daily exercise regime. For a diabetic, being overweight is a call to have numerous health problems later-on in life. Exercise helps in maintaining the weight but it needs to be done carefully as complications can occur after a heavy workout. But, it's absolutely not advisable to become a couch potato.
