Nhs Diet Advice For Diabetes

Tweet In the UK, current 2016 NHS diabetes diet advice is that there is no special diet for people with diabetes. Many people with diabetes focus on the carbohydrate content of their meals and prefer a low-carb diet for tight blood glucose level control. The NHS (and Diabetes UK) recommend a healthy, balanced diet that is low in fat, sugar and salt and contain a high level of fresh fruit and vegetables. This guide reviews the diet advice the NHS gives to people with diabetes and discusses to what degree the advice is sensible. What does the NHS advise?

    A1C and pre diabetes

    I got my first A1C this week after getting several finger tip 12 hour fasting results that were at 109 for the past couple years.
    My A1C was 5.8. I am 47, male, slim and excercise alot.
    Please advise if my 5.8 level is pre diabetic and cause for concern?

    In my opinion, Evergrean, it's in the very early stage. I don't really believe in the concept of "pre"diabetes, because people are sometimes apt to use that as an excuse to ignore it. If you have elevated blood glucose (and your A1c converts to average blood glucose of about 107), then you have early signs of diabetes and would be well advised to take measures to prevent its advance.
    If you don't have a meter already, you might consider getting one and taking a few tests around your meals. That will give you a better idea of how your metabolism is coping with carbs. Take a test before you eat, so you know where you started (keep a log of your readings, and keep a food journal too - what/when/how much you ate). Eat your meal and test one hour after the first bite; this tells you roughly how high the meal raised your BG. Then test again two hours after the first bite, and you should be dropping back down close to your starting level.
    There is much good information and explanations at Blood Sugar 101,
