A lot of people living with diabetes have been misinformed on what to eat and what not to eat.
Eating carbohydrate meals is like committing suicide. So they totally avoid it, while some choose other forms of dieting such as keto diet. Let me clarify you: blood glucose is the body's primary source of energy and it's chiefly gotten from break down of carbs.
When the body doesn't get enough, muscle protein and fat stores are broken down to produce glucose, this is known as gluconeogenesis. Hence, eating carbohydrate spares getting glucose from non-carbohydrates sources.
In managing diabetes, dietary intervention is one of the effective ways to delay progression of disease, relieve symptoms and maintain near normal blood glucose levels.
Ignorance and restrictive eating can only do more harm than good. This is why you need to see a dietitian for a tailored nutrition plan and other medical team members for effective management.
