Diabetes Management

You’ve been diagnosed with diabetes so what do you do next?  

Maintaining your blood sugar under control can be a difficult and tiresome task.  However, with proper planning and discipline this can be achieved.  There are a few main things to consider when structuring your new life with diabetes:

MEDICATIONS & SUPPLEMENTS

Oral diabetic medications and/or insulin are designed to lower your blood sugar levels when diet and exercise alone aren't sufficient for managing diabetes.  It is important to keep the same daily routine when taking your medications.  Adding CinnaLife to this routine is essential to aid in the maintenance of not only your sugar levels but of other debilitating ailments that accompany diabetes such as high blood pressure, cholesterol and more.

Diabetes ManagementPROPER DIET

Eating right is necessary to maintain a healthy lifestyle, but if you have diabetes it is now a vital part of managing your health and can make a huge difference in keeping your blood sugar levels under control.

The 4 main areas to focus on when building a healthy diet include: carbohydrates, fats, fiber, and salt.  Below is what you need to know about each one.

Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are the most important source of energy for your body and are your main source of fuel. They affect your blood sugar faster than fats or protein.

Carbohydrates are mainly found in the following food groups:

  • Fruit
  • Starchy vegetables such as peas, potatoes, squash, sweet potatoes, corn and beans
  • Milk & yogurt
  • Bread, cereal, pasta and rice

Fats

Diabetes makes you more likely to acquire heart disease, therefore limiting fat, especially saturated fat and artificial trans fats is pivotal.

The main sources of saturated fats are red meats, and dairy products.

The following are tips for choosing and cooking low-fat foods:

  • Choose lean cuts of meat.
  • Bake, grill, broil, roast or boil foods instead of frying foods.
  • Choose dairy products that are low in fat or are fat-free. 
  • Use liquid vegetable oils instead of solid fats.
  • Use low-fat vegetable cooking spray.
  • Use low fat margarines, salad dressings and gravies.

Fiber

Most Americans don't consume enough fiber. The best way to get more fiber from your diet is to eat more of these fiber-rich foods:

  • Berries and vegetables (the crunchier, the better)
  • Nuts
  • Cooked dried beans and peas
  • Baked potato with skin
  • Whole-grain breads, pasta and crackers
  • Brown rice
  • Bran cereal
  • Oatmeal

Salt

Diabetes makes you more likely to acquire high blood pressure. Consuming too much salt in your diet can add to that risk. In order to decrease your risk of developing high blood pressure you should consider limiting or avoiding the following:

  • Salt seasonings
  • Canned foods
  • Cold cuts and cured or processed meats
  • Salad dressings, Ketchup, mustard, steak sauces, canned sauces or other spreads
  • Boxed mixes of potatoes, pasta and rice
  • Pizza
  • Packaged soups, sauces and gravies
  • Olives
  • Pickled foods
  • Monosodium glutamate (MSG)

 

EXERCISE

Diabetes ManagementGetting motivated is half the battle if you aren't in the habit of exercising. Once you are on the right track to more activity, you'll find that it isn't as hard to keep going. You’ll actually have more energy and feel better as time goes on.  Physical activity is another main factor in the management of diabetes.  When you exercise, your muscles use sugar (glucose) for energy. Exercising regularly, also helps your body use insulin more efficiently.

These factors work together to lower your blood sugar levels. The more strenuous your workout, the longer the effect lasts. Even light activities such as walking, housework, gardening or being on your feet for extended periods of time can improve your blood sugar levels. The American Diabetes Association recommends at least 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous aerobic exercise 5 days per week.

STRESS

When your body is under stress it works overtime to help you cope. One of the ways it does this is by releasing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol. In addition to these hormones, your body also releases glucose (sugar) from your liver, stored fat reserves and muscles.

The following are some simple ways to help your body cope with stress and keep your sugar levels under control:

  • Exercise raises levels of endorphins and serotonin. These are two brain chemicals that influence mood and overall sense of well-being. Exercise is an invaluable stress reliever with many of other health-related benefits.
  • Get enough sleep. Inadequate rest can make stress worse and lower your ability to cope with it. Conversely, healthy sleeping habits can increase energy and improve attitude. If you struggle to get enough sleep at night, a restorative short nap during the day is recommended.
  • Spending time outside. Fresh air, sunlight and nature tend to have soothing effects.
  • Yoga, breathing exercises, meditation and a massage.
  • Progressive muscle relaxation that includes learning to tense and relax major muscles groups.
  • Behavior modification by emptying distracting thoughts from the mind and replacing unhelpful thoughts with helpful ones.
