The 25 Foods You Must Eat and Avoid : Diabetes
People with diabetes, regardless of type, should always take special care with food. These are allowable and ‘forbidden’ foods.
Talking about diabetes does not always mean talking about lifestyle. Although it is the most common type 2 diabetes in the world – and one that is directly related to poor diet and physical inactivity – there are other types of diabetes that have nothing to do with the daily choices that people make.
It is the case of type 1 diabetes (or insulin-dependent diabetes), which is the rarest and has a higher incidence among children and young people. The cure is not yet a reality for this autoimmune disease.
But talking about diabetes also means talking about gestational diabetes , which occurs during pregnancy and can even affect women who had no clue of the disease before they became pregnant. This type of diabetes tends to disappear but, when not treated properly, can boost the onset of type 2 diabetes.
Paying attention to the signs of pre-diabetes is the best way to prevent a progression of the disease. The prevention of pre-diabetes (or the final diagnosis of diabetes) involves weight control, which should be maintained at a healthy level and without large accumulations of fat, especially at the abdominal level.
Therefore, as the website Eat This, Not That! Highlights, food plays a key role not only in prevention and treatment of disease, avoiding drastic changes in insulin levels and possible diseases associated with diabetes, such as blindness and obesity .
Avoiding foods rich in sugar, salt and fat or that have been extensively processed is one of the first steps to take. Then choose the foods that best help control appetite and blood sugar levels, while providing a wide range of nutrients that make the immune system more strengthened.

However, it is important to point out that the impact of food varies from organism to organism and that therefore it is always important to seek advice and help from a doctor and nutritionist, because only then will you know which are the most suitable options for each case. When in doubt, speak to your doctor.
