Diabetes has been our focus all week. 1 in 12 Americans has diabetes and 1 in 4 is prediabetic – that’s over 100 million of us! If diabetes is not taken seriously NOW- it will cripple our nation with health care costs. Luckily, it is possible to reverse the growing diabetes epidemic by Feeding Your Body Royally! Diabetes occurs when the body is unable to regulate the level of glucose in the blood, resulting in too much glucose being present. Over time, high blood glucose levels increase the risk of heart attack, stroke, impotence, and foot problems; and may cause serious complications, such as damaged eye blood vessels, nerve cells and kidneys. Prediabetes means that your blood sugar level is higher than normal, but it’s not yet increased enough to be classified as diabetes. Still, without intervention, prediabetes is likely to become diabetes in 10 years or less. For more information about the disease visit the World Diabetes Foundation's site.
Luckily a healthy lifestyle, such as eating nutritious foods, being physically active and maintaining a healthy weight can bring your blood sugar level back to normal. Carbohydrates make your blood glucose level go up. The more carbohydrates you eat, the higher your blood sugar. Therefore people with diabetes and prediabetes should count carbohydrates and eat a low-carb diet.
