Since I am a diabetic (under good control), just thought I would share with you a few things most diabetics should do to keep healthy and active. Make your day ia good one.
1.Eat only the type of foods that are suggested by your physician and /or your nutritionist. Your meals should typically contain foods with low fat, low carbs, and no added sugars. Instead, try to maintain a healthy high fiber diet.
2.Be sure to consume all meals on time, and stick to the amount of calories aloud. Include healthy snacks for consumption during the day.
3. Test your blood sugar at the recommended times- (usually before the am, and pm meals)
4.Make sure medications are stored correctly, is not outdated, and is in an adequate supply.
5.If you take insulin injections, don’t throw uncapped needles into the garbage. It can lead to someone getting stuck by the needle accidentally.
6.Stay well hydrated. Remember: No sugary drinks, or over consumption of fruit juices. Drink more water and green tea.
7.Exercise regularly. This will help keep the blood sugar level in good control
8.Maintain your medical appointments as scheduled.
I hope this list is helpful to all diabetics. There is no reason for a diabetic not to live a long and productive life. Comply with the above suggestions, and anything else the physician suggest, and there should be very minimal consequences to your health.
Healthy trails to you.
