Diabetes Cannot Harm You !! If You Keep A Close Eye On These 3 Things

Diabetes is a complicated disease and has often been termed as a silent killer. It needs to be kept under close watch at all times. This can be achieved by proper monitoring and making necessary lifestyle changes. Diabetes cannot harm you, if you do these 3 things.

 

1. Proper intake of food and water – Diet plays a major role in individuals suffering from diabetes. It should focus on striking the right balance. Carbohydrates affect blood sugar much more than proteins or fats. There are two kinds of carbohydrates namely, simple and complex. Simple carbohydrates break down easily and instantly raise blood glucose level. On the contrary, complex carbohydrates alongside having sugar also contain fibre, vitamins and minerals. Therefore, they take longer time to digest causing less immediate impact on blood sugar. Hence, in case of diabetes it is better to lower the intake of simple carbohydrates and increase complex carbohydrates in a balanced way. Reduce consumption of roti/rice and take more fruits and vegetables. Diabetic’s should choose vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, bitter gourd, cucumber, tomatoes, beans, onions, etc. Intake of fruits like apples, oranges, grapes, peach, cherries, strawberries, pears and plums is recommended for people suffering from diabetes. Either of these fruits are to be taken thrice a day in moderate quantities. Alongside food, water intake plays a major role in diabetes control. Drinking at least 8 glasses of water daily is vital. One should in fact begin the day by drinking a litre of water in empty stomach before brushing. The process is by taking 3 gulps of water at each set interval and completing the process within 10 minutes. The day should end with the intake of a cup of lukewarm water.     
    
2. Physical activity – Engaging in physical activities like walking, jogging or playing helps to keep diabetes under check. Exercising increases heart beat and makes breathing heavier. Muscles use more glucose in the blood stream. Overtime, this lowers blood sugar and also enhances the functioning of insulin. Begin your exercise regime by doing early morning walk for about 15 minutes. Avoid sitting for too long and take 2 minutes walk every 1 hour throughout the day. 30 minutes of exercise at a stretch on a daily basis would complete the regular physical activity process.
 
3. Regular monitoring and yearly check-upDiabetes can be very erratic. Hence, regular monitoring backed by maintaining a healthy lifestyle will minimise the risk factors associated with the disease. Twice a week check-up of both Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS) and Post Prandial Blood Sugar (PPBS) with the help of a glucometer is recommended by eminent endocrinologists. FBS (Fasting Blood Sugar) should never exceed 110 mg/dl. PPBS (Post Prandial Blood Sugar) should not go above 150 mg/dl. HbA1c test needs to be conducted every 3 months. HbA1c occurs when haemoglobin in RBC, bonds with glucose in the bloodstream. RBCs exist in the body for around 3 months, therefore HbA1c levels generally reflect a person’s blood glucose real level over the previous 8-12 weeks. HbA1c level should be under 6.5%. Alongside this, yearly health check-up of organs like heart, kidney, eyes, etc is necessary to abate the occurrence of potential diabetic complications.
