Maintaining your Diet is called good healthy life
Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood glucose, also called blood sugar, is too high. Blood glucose is your main source of energy and comes from the food you eat. A lot of people around the world still believe that sugar is a major cause of Diabetes. Diabetes has emerged as a global health crisis affecting 425 million people and if the trend continues, the number of people suffering from diabetes is expected to reach 629 million by 2045. Even with millions of people suffering from the disease, it is disconcerting to see a number of myths surrounding it.
Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, helps glucose from food get into your cells to be used for energy. Sometimes your body doesn’t make enough or any insulin or doesn’t use insulin well. Glucose then stays in your blood and doesn’t reach your cells.
In order to effectively manage the disease, it is important to understand how different types of sugar can affect one’s body and how to accommodate them in one’s diet. Ultimately, almost every food breaks down into the same compounds, which is glucose, but it is the speed of metabolism that matters. Foods with simple carbohydrate (the most refined forms of carbohydrate like sugar, all-purpose flour, potatoes and others) take less time to be broken down by the body, which leads to rapid spike in blood sugar levels, while those with complex carbohydrate (millets, green leafy vegetables, high fiber fruits) take longer time enabling the gradual spike in blood sugar. Therefore, it is a good idea to include complex carbs as part of your diet.
