Diet for high blood sugar: ask an endocrinologist. New scientific data about diet for high blood sugar

Diabetes is a systemic violation processing microanalytically substances with subsequent development of instability of a metabolism.

Diabetes affects people of any age and gender, and is characterized by the severity of the exhibited symptoms and many complications, because life is to serious danger.

In addition to specific treatment, it is important to choose for the patient the optimal power supply system.

General nutrition guidelines for high blood sugar

For starters, it should be noted that not always the rise of blood sugar indicates the presence of diabetes. The pancreas may reduce activity in the period of prolonged stress, depression etc. In this case, increased sugar in the blood can be a normal variant. The diagnosis can only endocrinologist on the basis of the diagnostic results.

Diabetes is a terrible disease. Therefore, in no case can not neglect the diet. Almost everyone knows that diabetes is of two types: 1st and 2nd, but the difference between them can name only a few.

The difference is quite clear: the diabetes of the first type is associated with the disruption of the pancreas by organic reasons (comorbidities such as pancreatitis, genetic disorders, etc.). Type II diabetes is almost always associated with obesity and is a result of. The pancreas simply can not withstand the load and fails.

Therefore, the approach to nutrition must be especially careful, taking into account their form of the disease.

You: watermelons, apples, citrus, pear, cherry, pomegranate, plums etc. Vegetables can be consumed without fear, except, perhaps, potatoes. The excess starch in the potato imposes certain limitations. As you know, in the body, starch is hydrolyzed to glucose, and that means would again be elevated blood sugar. Potatoes are best consumed in the form of puree. When cooking of starch «falls» into the water, and the concentration of a substance in the tubers falls.

The principles of nutrition and preparation of diet for high blood sugar

Food must be fractional. Portion should not exceed 150-300 grams. The frequency of meals should be 4-6 times. Meal times should be calculated on the basis of the standard human biorhythms adjusted for individual characteristics: the first —8.00-9.00, the second — 11.30, third — 13.30, fourth — 15.30-16.00, fifth — 18.00, sixth — 20.00.

Biochemical composition of the diet should be as follows: 23-24% fat, 20 protein, and the rest should come from carbohydrates.

For persons suffering from diabetes of the 2nd type, the main treatment is to reduce body weight. The main recommendation for these patients is to reduce caloric intake by 1/3 — ½ (usual food intake). Sharply refuse food cannot.

Substitute products banned for high blood sugar

The harmlessness of diabetic products is a moot point. A number of experts adopted the traditional opinion that we should completely abandon sugar and products that are prohibited if you have diabetes and go to their substitutes. Others point directly to the harmfulness and danger of their consumption.

Indeed, fructose is not able to substitute glucose, especially not capable of it sorbitol. The lack of sugar will lead to serious consequences. On the other hand, diabetic products, according to research by the foreign scientists do not only contribute, but also exacerbate the disease.

Therefore, to minimize or to completely refuse from food-substitutes.

A diabetic can eat sweets and honey. But only in minimal quantities (for example, 1/3 of candy a day, 1 teaspoon of honey per day). A surplus, of course, to what good will not result.

1) Candy on the sorbitol and fructose.

2) Syrups and juices.

3) Pasta.

4) Sausages.

In most cases, everything said about them is a total fraud and sham, or insufficient qualification of the doctor.

The only one who will benefit from the consumption of this «food» manufacturers.

The diet of the diabetic must consist only of natural products.
