Diabetes is a serious medical condition that affects more than 30.3 million people in the US alone. This deadly disease is associated with a person’s high sugar level in the blood. We rely heavily on insulin to digest glucose in our body, hence why the body’s inability to produce insulin leads to diabetes.
Since many people are suffering from this disease, we should all educate ourselves about this condition. People with this condition often suffer from fatigue, high appetite yet their weight drops, wounds that do not heal, numbness, and blurry vision. The only way to ensure that you have it is to get checked by a licensed medical practitioner.
If you or someone you know is diagnosed with any type of diabetes, then you must be aware that affected people have a strict diet to follow. Today, our trusted professional, Dr. Willie Ong, will show us food to consume and what to avoid when you have diabetes.
The ‘Doktor ng Bayan‘ enumerated the do’s and dont’s when you are diagnosed with this condition. If you have it, here is a list of food that won’t trigger your condition and can be beneficial for your body:
- Green leafy vegetables such as okra, water spinach, bitter gourd, and malunggay
- Fruits such as pears, pomelo, and apples
- Wheat bread and brown rice
Let’s move on to foods you should avoid. Take a note of them below:
- Dairy products, ice cream, foods with icing, and cakes
- Pastries such as chocolates, donuts, and pancakes
- Iced tea, soft drinks, sweetened coffee
- Food or beverages that contain high levels of sugar
