Diet at diabetes

Diabetes – a dangerous disease and to trifle with its treatment — a big mistake. The illness can provoke damage of other vitals.

Diet at diabetes: that is possible, and that it is impossible

The reason of diabetes is considered a lack of insulin and a surplus of glucose of blood. The illness can be hereditary and acquired as a result of the wrong way of life, etc.

Diabetes can be divided into types:

  1. The first type is connected with a lack of insulin and the people suffering from diabetes need to enter insulin to avoid such illnesses as a hyperglycemia and ketoacidoz. As a rule, this type is characteristic for young people (till 30 years).
  2. The second type, unlike the first is characteristic development of enough insulin or even a surplus. Is more characteristic for elderly people with an excess weight.
  3. Gestational diabetes – intolerance of glucose develops at pregnancy and vanishes after the birth of the kid.
  4. Other types which are caused by various genetic diseases, as a result of reception of certain preparations, an infection, food violation.

How to define harmful products?

To deal with the list of the forbidden products it is necessary to know an indicator thanks to which it is possible to make it, namely a glycemic index. It shows glucose level in blood after the use of these or those products. The index, the worse for the diabetic is higher, that is the product is very harmful thanks to the high content of sugar and other substances that negatively influence glucose level.

Types of food on a glycemic index:

  1. With a low glycemic index – the indicator makes to 40 units;
  2. Average glycemic index – fluctuation of figures from 40 to 70 units;
  3. With a high glycemic index – index figures from 70 to 100 units.

The people suffering from diabetes need to eat products which belong to the first type (with a low glycemic index).

Exactly thanks to this indicator any diabetic will be able to regulate the food itself. After all it is necessary to adhere to a diet all life, and it is very important that the person didn't feel to himself limited in food. The knowledge of a glycemic index is also necessary for those who wishes to grow thin.
