BEST CARBOHYDRATES AND DIABETICS.

Carbohydrates, proteins, and fats are the most essential nutrients in every diet, with carbohydrates being the most important in terms of quantity because it is the primary source of energy in the body. Moreover, plasma glucose levels are determined by the levels of carbohydrates and insulin in the blood. Therefore, carbohydrate intake

BEST FRUITS AND DIABETICS

The prevalence and severity of diabetes and its resulting metabolic complications are rapidly increasing, hence a major challenge to health care providers. Fruits are widely used in the control of diabetes to prevent these complications. They contain many bioactive constituents such as minerals, vitamins, fibers, and phytochemicals which have proven to be

Which Foods Should Diabetics Avoid?

Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder that leads to persistently high levels of blood glucose(hyperglycemia). When not properly controlled, complications such as glaucoma, heart disease, kidney disease, and diabetic wounds may arise. Diabetes control involves the use of insulin and medications, eating healthy, and exercise. Thus eating wrong can lead to poor

What’s The Best Diet For Type 2 Diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes occurs when there is little or lowers insulin production and insulin resistance at the level of insulin receptors of cells in the body. This results in a permanently increased blood glucose level. Inadequate physical activity, inappropriate diets, and obesity are risk factors attributed to type 2 diabetes. Thus having

TYPE 2 DIABETES AND FACTS-Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment.

Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a complicated metabolic problem that is characterized by persistently high levels of sugar in the body. This situation is also known as hyperglycemia. Diabetes either results from the inability of pancreatic beta cells to secret insulin (type1) or failure of the insulin response mechanism (type 2). Type 2

KETO DIET AND DIABETES TYPE 1

Type 1 diabetes ultimately leads to a complete loss of insulin production. Without treatment, blood glucose levels remain elevated, which over time may cause complications such as glaucoma and diabetic wounds. There is, therefore, a need to regulate glucose levels in type1 diabetics and control of glucose intake plats a major role

TYPE 1 DIABETES AND DIET-EAT HEALTHILY.

  Beta cells of the pancreas are destroyed in DM1, thus there is a decline and subsequent absence in the secretion of insulin. This leads to a high blood glucose level (hyperglycemia) due to failure in the regulation of glucose. Once diagnosed with diabetes, patients start making necessary adjustments to help keep
