proved that this is basically because people are so into technology and work that they don’t take of their

This leads to improper storage of glucose in the body causing an unexpected rise in blood glucose in
one’s body. There are two types of diabetes:-

A. Type 1 Diabetes

It is also called Juvenile Onset diabetes when one’s body stops producing any insulin, a hormone which enables the body to use glucose found in food for energy. People with Type 1 Diabetes need to take
insulin daily in order to survive. This type of diabetes can be seen in minors and middle age people
generally.

It is also called adult-onset or non-insulin dependent diabetes in which the body is not able to use
insulin properly. This type of diabetes can be generally be seen in people who are above 40, overweight

People with diabetes have a higher risk of heart disease and are at great risk of developing mental
health disorders such as depression. So one needs to take some steps or bring some changes in lifestyle and food that you eat though that doesn’t mean that you need to live your life in deprivation.
It means having a tasty, balanced diet which will not only boost your energy but it will also help in
curbing this disease and improve your mood. In order to curb this disease, you need to follow a diet and
health chart such as:-

of lower blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Losing weight and having a proper diet can
improve your mood, give you energy and sense of wellbeing.

2. Having a disease like diabetes doesn’t mean that you can’t have sugar ever again rather you can
enjoy your favorite treats as long as they are taken in measure quantity and has limited sugar quantity.
You don’t need to put a stone on your heart by completely saying goodbye to desserts as long as they
are a part of a healthy meal plan. The principles of healthy eating are the same whether you are
diabetics or not. Expensive diabetic food generally offers nothing but just a burden on your pocket.

causes insulin resistance a key factor in diabetes. A good pocket-friendly and healthy diet include the
proper amount of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Our body requires all three to maintain a good
healthy body.

them on a daily basis can increase the chance of diabetes by 15%. Instead, you should try sparkling
water with a twist of lemon or lime instead. You should also try having black tea or coffee and avoid
adding creamers and sweeteners in them.

5. One of the biggest misconceptions is that many people think that replacing saturated fat such as
whole dairy milk products with refined carbs will be healthier. Low fat doesn’t mean healthy when fat is
replaced by refined sugar.

6. You should go for unsweetened iced tea, plain yogurt or unflavored oatmeal and you should prefer
adding sweetener yourself a majority of times you would be adding less sugar than the manufacturer.

Diabetes is a common disease these days but we shouldn’t take it lightly instead we should change our
