If you have been diagnosed with Diabetes ““ check out your doctor! If you find that you are not happy with the care that your doctor is giving you, do not hesitate to shop around for a new one. You need to be confident in your doctor’s skills! If you have any doubts about the care you are receiving, you should find a new one that you trust with your life.

A good tip that can help you manage your diabetes is to start eating foods that are high in fiber. Eating foods that are high in fiber are great because they’ll keep you feeling full longer, controlling your blood sugar. Eating fiber can also greatly reduce your risk of heart disease.

For those who suffer from diabetes there are many alternatives to sugar that can fulfill our sugar craving. These artificial sweeteners are often times 25 to 100 times more sweet than sugar and most the time they have close to 0 calories. Use these artificial sweeteners as a replacement for sugar.

If you’re working to lose weight and keep your Diabetes in check but can’t find any healthy breakfast options with protein that you enjoy, try a smoothie. You can buy protein powder at a health food store (make sure to ask if it has any sugar or artificial sweeteners) and you can put a scoop in to up the nutritional punch!

Checking out international foods is an excellent way of finding new recipes that you’ll actually enjoy eating, even though they’re good for you and your Diabetes. I’d highly recommend trying Tabouleh, a Middle Eastern dish made with herbs, onions, lemon juice, and bulgur. It’s extremely good mixed with hummus and served on a pita!

One of the best things that you can do to help manage your diabetes, along with a regimen of medication and regular consultation with your doctor, is to incorporate exercise into your daily life. Just thirty minutes of exercise five times a week can lower your risk of heart disease, decrease the likelihood of adverse diabetic consequences, and lower your stress levels.

If you’re often too tired in the morning to make breakfast, figure something out that you can do while you’re half asleep. A diabetic MUST eat in the morning, so try something like a protein shake or a muffin and an apple. Pour yourself a tall glass of milk to go along with it!

You are in control of the way your life plays out. Diabetes can be managed if you follow the tips below and really put them into practice. Managing diabetes takes a conscious choice to do the things that you need to do to live as healthy and happy, as possible.
