Fruits For Diabetes: All You Need To Know

Fruits For Diabetes: All You Need To Know

Home Health Fruits for diabetes: All you need to know Fruits for diabetes: All you need to know Many patients with diabetes suffer because they are ignorant of the exact diet to take. Experts, in this report by Sade Oguntola, say that it is necessary for patients to understand what, how, when and why they should eat fruits. Eating fruit is a healthy way to satisfy hunger and meet daily nutritional needs. However, most fruits contain sugar, which raises questions about whether they are healthy for diabetics. Is fruit unhealthy for people with diabetes? Certainly, fruits consumption is healthy and it should be part of everyones balanced diet to provide enough energy and help to maintain a healthy weight. Some fruits such as mangoes are high in sugar, but can be part of a healthy diet as long as not too many are eaten. But, the consumption of some fruits is restricted in persons with diabetes whose blood sugar control is bad. Fruits for people with diabetes to eat or avoid Not all fruits should be consumed by persons with diabetes, especially those with very sweet taste, because of their glucose and fructose content, said Dr Adebowale Adewunmi, a consultant nephrologist, Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH). This is not saying that they cannot take a whole orange or apple a day because they equally need vitamin C and other nutrients present in these fruits. But we do not encourage intake of fruits like pineapple that has very high sugar content, he said. He said diabetics with poor sugar control are always asked to stop consuming fruits with sweet taste such as oranges and banana, till they achieve a good blood sugar level control. Dr Adewunmi, however, said there is no restriction in amount of fruits such as African garden egg, cucumber, carrot and grapefruit that c Continue reading >>

No Special Diet For Diabetes Expert

A Nigerian newspaper and Online version of the Vanguard, a daily publication in Nigeria covering Nigeria news, Niger delta, general national news, politics, business, energy, sports, entertainment, fashion,lifestyle human interest stories, etc Debunks significance of beans and unripe plantain WORRIED that many Nigerians living with diabetes are restricted to a diet of beans and unripe plantain, an endocrinologist, Dr Ifedayo Odeniyi, has stated that there is no special diet for diabetes and that persons living with the disorder are free to eat any locally available and culturally acceptable food. Odeniyi, who is a Senior Lecturer/Honorary Consultant Endocrinologist, of the Department of Medicine, College of Medicine, University of Lagos/Lagos University Teaching Hospital, said it had become expedient that persons living with diabetes know their status in order to seek treatment promptly. Speaking ahead of World Diabetes Day, November 14, at a capacity-building workshop on diabetes organised by Sanofi Aventis Pharma Nigeria, Odeniyi said the idea of a diabetes diet was a myth. We have often heard that the diet of diabetics should be beans and unripe plantain, but that is not correct. There is no special diet for diabetes, and there is nothing like diabetes diet. A diabetic can eat everything, he avowed. Noting that diabetes is not a death sentence and not as deadly as it is often being portrayed, Odeniyi argued that a lot of people have been put in bondage and sentenced to a life of beans and unripe plantain. They are even denied meat. Unfortunately, some doctors say diabetic patients should be on beans, but beans is not protein, it is actually 60 per cent carbohydrate, while even plantain is 70 per cent carbohydrate. The diabetic should eat everything in moderation. Wh Continue reading >>

Find the best Nigerian food recipes for diabetic patients you can follow to fight, prevent and stop Type 1, Type 2 or Gestational diabetes in your body. Diabetes describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate or because the body’s cells do not respond properly to insulin or both. It is a long-term condition that causes high blood sugar levels. There are three types of diabetes, namely: Type 1 diabetes: in this case, the body does not produce insulin. It is referred to as insulin-dependent diabetes, juvenile diabetes, or early onset diabetes. People usually develop type 1 diabetes before the age of 40, often in early adulthood or teenage years. Type 1 diabetes is nowhere near as common as type 2 diabetes. Approximately 10% of all diabetes cases are type 1. Type 2 diabetes: this is whereby the body does not produce enough insulin for proper function, or cells in the body do not react to insulin (insulin resistance). Approximately 90% of all cases of diabetes worldwide are type 2. Some people may be able to control their type 2 diabetes symptoms by losing weight, following a healthy diet, doing plenty of exercises and monitoring their blood glucose level. Type 2 diabetes is typically a progressive disease –it gradually gets worse and the patient will probably end up having to take insulin, usually in tablet form. Overweight and obese people have a much higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes compared to those with a healthy body weight. The risk of developing type 2 diabetes is also greater as we get older. Men whose testosterone levels are low have to be found to have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Gestational diabetes: this type of diabetes affects femal Continue reading >>

Dobbys Signature: Nigerian Food Blog I Nigerian Food Recipes I African Food Blog: 10 Healthy Food Choices For Diabetes

Hi everyone! It's world diabetes day today and as a sequel to the previous post, i'd be sharing some important things on diabetes. First i'd start by explaining what diabetes is. Diabetes is an illness that consists of high and abnormal sugar levels in the body. A person without diabetes naturally releases insulin to keep the blood sugar from going too high while a person with diabetes cannot release insulin naturally and has to inject it in to control blood sugar because their bodies don't produce or properly use insulin. a) Type 1 Diabetes (formerly called juvenile onset diabetes) This is believed to be a genetic auto immune disease where the pancreas produces very little or no insulin at all. Insulin is a hormone needed by the body to get glucose from the bloodstream into the cells of the body. In type 2 diabetes, the immune system of the body destroys the pancreas cells that produce and release insulin. This makes it impossible for sugar (it's converted to glucose in the body) which is needed by the cells for energy to be absorbed, due to lack of insulin. It's usually diagnosed in young people and is said to be genetic or inherited. b) Type 2 Diabetes (formerly called adult onset diabetes) This is the most common type of diabetes where the insulin produced by the pancreas is not being utilisedthe right way. The insulin needed to enable glucose enter cells becomes insufficient. Overtime as blood sugar increases due to lack of absorption of glucose into the cells, the pancreas begins to produce less and less insulin which later leads to insulin deficiency. type 2 diabetes is usually diagnosed in people who are overweight and inactive. A healthy diet can make it easier for blood sugar levels to be controlled by balancing meals with a healthy amount of carbohydrates, p Continue reading >>

10 Best Foods For Hypertensive Patients

10 Best Foods For Hypertensive Patients

High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a serious health problem. Over time, it causes blood vessel damage that can lead to heart disease, kidney disease, stroke, and other problems. Hypertension is sometimes called the silent killer because it produces no symptoms. If you dont get your blood pressure checked regularly, hypertension could go unnoticed, and untreated, for years. Here is a list of foods for hypertensive patients. Potatoes are high in potassium and magnesium, two minerals that can help to lower your blood pressure. They are also high in fiber, which is necessary for an overall healthy diet. Enjoy a baked potato as the centerpiece of your dinner. Instead of fattening and salty butter and sour cream, try adding plain yogurt or salsa for flavor. High-fiber, low-fat, and low-sodium foods are just what you want for lowering your blood pressure, and oatmeal fits the bill. Oatmeal for your breakfast is a great way to charge up for the day. On its own, oatmeal can be bland. But refrain from adding too much sugar. Instead, you can add a touch of honey. Bananas are a great way to add potassium to your diet. Eating foods that are rich in this mineral is better than taking supplements. Slice a banana into your breakfast cereal or oatmeal, or take one to work every day for a quick, easy, and inexpensive snack. Nutritious and versatile, beans (including black, white, navy, lima, pinto, and kidney) are chock-full of soluble fiber, magnesium, and potassium, all excellent ingredients for lowering blood pressure and improving overall heart health. Add beans to your favorite salads, soups, or wraps; as a bonus, theyre pretty inexpensive. A green leafy delight,spinach is low in calories, high in fiber, and packed with heart-healthy nutrients like potassium, folate, and magn Continue reading >>
