Stop Diabetes

Stop diabetes

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.
