How to manage the condition
Following a diagnosis, you will be advised to make necessary lifestyle changes to reduce the risks posed by rising blood sugar levels.
A dietary overhaul is an essential part of maintaining a healthy blood sugar level, and, while there is nothing you cannot eat if you have type 2 diabetes, you’ll have to limit certain foods.
The worst offenders are foods with a high-carbohydrate content as carbohydrate is broken down into glucose relatively quickly and therefore has a more pronounced effect on blood sugar levels than either fat or protein.
A useful way to distinguish between high-carb and low-carb options is to refer to the glycemic index (GI).
