How to manage blood sugar levels
A healthy diet and keeping active can help keep blood sugar levels in check.
The NHS advises: “There’s nothing you cannot eat if you have type 2 diabetes, but you’ll have to limit certain foods.
“You should eat a wide range of foods – including fruit, vegetables and some starchy foods like pasta, keep sugar, fat and salt to a minimum, and eat breakfast, lunch and dinner every day – do not skip meals.”
And when it comes to keeping active, it says: “Physical exercise helps lower your blood sugar level. You should aim for 2.5 hours of activity a week.
