Treatment of Diabetes with Diet

Carbohydrates are the most important macronutrient in the diabetic diet. Carbohydrates should make up about 45 to 55 percent of a diabetic patient's daily energy intake. The number of carbohydrates in each meal and snack should be consumed in a specific amount and it depends on the type of diabetes and the type of medicine that you use.
The nutritionist recommended using low glycemic index (GI) foods in the diabetic diet plan to control blood sugar.
Consumption of fibre rich food in the diabetic diet plan is recommended and you should eat at least 20 to 35 grams per day. Vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, etc. are the best source of fibre. Eat enough vegetables in your diabetic diet. It is better to eat fresh vegetables instead of a frozen ones. Replace refined grain with whole grain.
The diabetic diet's protein content is arranged in the same way as the diet of normal people. It makes up 15 to 20% of a person's daily energy requirements. Be careful about plant source protein like beans, chickpea, lentil and etc., because they have carbohydrate, and you should count carbohydrate content of them.
In the diabetic diet plan, just like other people, trans fatty acids can cause cardiovascular disease and gene mutations in the patient, so you should restrict fried foods, processed foods, chips, hydrogenated vegetable oils, etc. in your diet plan.
Chromium supplementation
in patients with chromium deficiency can help improve their blood sugar levels. Zinc deficiency in these patients is possible. High or low levels of zinc in the body can affect insulin secretion in a diabetic patient so you should consult with your doctor to use a zinc supplement.
Your diabetic diet should be regular, and you should eat your meals at certain times, Avoid skipping or moving meals without consulting your dietitian.
When hypoglycemia happens, which is accompanied by symptoms of seizures, cold sweats, tremors, blurred vision, weakness and lethargy, and heart palpitations, use a small candy, chocolate, sugar syrup, or half a glass of natural fruit juice.
You should not eat foods high in sodium, high in cholesterol, and simple carbs in the diabetic diet.
