Diabetes is a chronic, life-long metabolic condition that affects the body’s ability to use the energy found in food. It is said that diabetes has no cure. But, that does not mean it is not manageable. Manage Diabetes by following steps.
1. Know your Diabetes
Diabetes is a metabolic disorder in which blood contains high sugar levels for a long period of time. There are 2 types of Diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is an auto-immune condition where the body’s immune system attacks its own pancreas which leads to decreased insulin production. It mostly affects kids and adolescence. In Type 2 diabetes body is unable to utilize the insulin produced by the pancreas (insulin resistance).
Having a diet low in carbohydrates and sugars is essential in managing diabetes. Consumption of healthy carbohydrates like fruits, whole grains, and vegetables has a beneficial effect on diabetes.
3. Monitor your Diabetes
After discussing this with your doctor you can buy one of the various glucometers available in the market to measure your blood glucose level on regular basis. Your doctor can tell you the routine for measuring blood glucose levels according to your condition.
In today’s world, when most people are moving along with the latest technology and trends it will be peculiar to feel its absence in the diabetic world. There are many mobile-based applications that can track your calorie intake, sugar counts, sleep, or data from glucose monitors and insulin pumps which can be helpful in managing your diabetes.
