Diabetes is on the rise in America. It is a condition where
the body is unable to regulate blood sugar (glucose)
levels, resulting in too much sugar in the blood.
Type 2 diabetes is most commonly diagnosed in
overweight people or those with a non-active lifestyle.
Today, it is of great concern to see a growing number of
overweight teenagers and children being diagnosed with
type 2 diabetes.
Over time, if diabetes is not well controlled with a healthy
lifestyle and the right medication, it can have serious
health consequences. Many of these problems can be
delayed or managed with treatment and a balanced
eating pattern that contains appropriate amounts of
carbohydrate rich foods, including sugar in moderation.
Food and your blood sugar level
If you have diabetes you should aim to keep the level of
sugar in your blood as close to normal as possible - not
too high (hyperglycemia) or too low (hypoglycemia).
Keeping active and choosing nutritious foods will help
manage your blood glucose levels and your weight.
