Diabetes Type I and Type II

Diet is the most important part of the treatment and control of Diabetes type I and II. The main goal with the treatment is to have a fasting blood sugar below 5.5 mmol/l and to maintain a stable blood sugar during the day. Medication without a meal plan is not effective. Each Diabetic person needs their own individually composed eating plan. A constant high blood sugar damages blood vessels and leads to the complications of Diabetes. The eyes, kidneys, heart and nerves are all very vulnerable. Complications can be avoided with blood sugar control. A diabetics diet is planned with the goal to have a stable blood sugar throughout the day. To achieve that low GI carbohydrates need to be divided in the correct way throughout the day. The composition of meals and type of carbohydrates that you eat is also important.
