Is It Possible To Manage Your Diabetes Through Diet?

In a word, yes!

Diabetes can be a difficult disease to manage, especially for the elderly or caregivers of the elderly.

But you may also be able to help your body maintain normal blood sugar levels by eating a healthy, balanced diet:

  • Choose snacks and foods that fit into the recommended food groups.
  • Enjoy exercise and physical activity to keep your weight in optimal ranges
  • Select fiber-rich fruits, vegetables and whole grains over empty calories and sugary snacks.
  • Avoid monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and decrease intake of saturated fats and trans fatty acids.
  • Limit alcoholic beverages to two drinks for men or one drink for women.
  • Get physical for at least 30 minutes a day!

 No matter what state of health you or your elderly loved on are in, a healthy, well-rounded diet that energizes and sustains you is a key part of every day.
