Better for you.
Diabetes cannot be cured but it can be managed. If you have diabetes, you should work closely with your healthcare providers to keep your blood pressure, cholesterol, and sugar levels under control. Here is some expert advice from Dr. Swapna’s Diabetic Care, from the Health in Aging Foundation, for older adults with diabetes and their caregivers.
Make the most of Dr Swapna Diabetic Camps. These camps will cover a visit with a diabetes educator and counselling from experts across various departments.
Eating more small meals over the course of the day can help keep your blood sugar levels steadier than eating three large meals.
Whole grains have more fiber, and take longer to digest than white flour and other refined starches. Whole grains, such as whole wheat flour, brown rice, oats, and barley, can help keep your blood sugar levels steadier.
Drink water or unsweetened tea instead of soft drinks or other beverages high in natural or added sugar. Enjoy fresh fruits for dessert. Avoid processed and prepared foods. These often contain corn syrup and are high in fat and salt.
Even small increases in physical activity can help you control your blood sugar and blood pressure levels and can help preserve your ability to live independently. Talk to your Doctor Swapna Reddy about how to get started if you have not been exercising for a while. If your healthcare provider says it is safe, start with at least 20 minutes of exercise at least three times a week.
If you are overweight, losing even 5 to 10 pounds can help make your diabetes easier to treat. You can do this by both eating well and exercising regularly.
Dry fruits seem like a healthy snacking option but for diabetic people it is not really the case. The fructose in dry fruits may spike your sugar level. So, try having fresh fruits instead of dry fruits.
