Diabetes is a metabolic disease that occurs because the body does not secrete enough insulin, or the insulin that is secreted is not absorbed by the body's cells. Although this metabolic disorder can cause damage to all organs, such as the skin, heart vessels, kidneys and brain, it usually does not cause any symptoms or only causes mild symptoms such as increased thirst and hunger and urination frequent.
Diabetes can cause impotence, heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, blindness, infections, premature aging and premature death. The coexistence of factors such as smoking, high cholesterol, high homocysteine and hypertension can significantly increase the adverse effects of the disease.
Scientific studies have shown that a poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle can contribute to the development of the disease. High-calorie foods and excessive consumption of fat, alcohol and sugar are associated with the development of diabetes. In addition, excess weight, especially when the BMI exceeds 26, can worsen the situation. Other contributing factors are: having a family history of diabetes, suffering from high blood pressure, having high cholesterol levels and suffering from metabolic syndrome.
Most people suffer from the metabolic syndrome before developing diabetes. Metabolic syndrome X is actually a precursor to diabetes. It is estimated that up to 25% of the population suffers from this syndrome. Specifically, the metabolic syndrome is characterized by three or more of the disorders listed below:
* Excessive storage of fat in the thorax and abdomen.
* High levels of triglycerides in the blood
* Abnormally low levels of "good" HDL cholesterol
* High blood pressure or blood sugar limit
* High blood pressure or normal limit.
As you can see, diabetes is a multifactorial disease. One way to treat this disorder is by modifying your eating habits. More specifically, here are the foods you should eat and the foods you should not eat, if you are diabetic:
* The consumption of carbohydrates should come mainly from fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains and low-fat dairy products.
* Eat fiber-rich foods
* It would be a good idea to use the glycemic index and glycemic load of food as a way to choose which foods to eat and which foods to avoid.
* Sweeteners are safe, when consumed in small quantities.
* Restricts dietary cholesterol
* Limit saturated and trans fats
* Two or more servings of fresh fish per week can be very beneficial, as they contain omega-3 fatty acids.
* Avoid diets that contain excessive proteins.
* Restrict protein to approximately 10-20 percent of your daily calorie intake.
* Up to 1 glass of red wine for women and up to 2 glasses of red wine per day for men is allowed.
* Do not drink alcohol on an empty stomach.
