    •As there is no ideal percentage of calories from carbohydrate, protein and fat for all people with diabetes, the macronutrient distribution should be based on individualized assessment of current eating patterns and preferences, while keeping total calorie and metabolic goals in mind.

    •In select groups such as the elderly, pregnant or lactating women, strict vegetarians, or those on calorie- restricted diets, a multivitamin supplement may be needed. A diet that is low in sodium ( less than 2300 mg per day ) can help manage blood pressure.

    •A daily 3 meal pattern with in between low calorie and low carbohydrate, high protein snacks can be advised.

    •Types of carbohydrates - more of carbohydrates must be given as complex rather than simple sugars as they break down more slowly to release glucose.

    •The distribution of carbohydrates, fats and protein in the diet should be such that it maintains the blood glucose and reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

    •Food to be avoided- glucoese, cake and pastries, sugar, honey, chocolates and candies, all sweets, fried food, alcoholic beverages, potatoes, mangoes, banana, sweet potatoes, yam, arbi, poories, pakoras and deep fried vegetables.

    Foods allowed- green leafy vegetables, tomatoes, cucumber, lemon, clear soups, black coffee, tea without sugar, buttermilk.

    It is rather difficult to cut out sugar totally. As we know white sugar is harmful to the body. Not only to diabetic patient but also others. Instead we can use coconut sugar which has less glycemic index. Coconut sugar is more expensive compared to white sugar.
    Another option is to use raw sugar ( made from sugarcane). This is not so costly.

"A life without sweets is not much worth living." But what a dilemma when there's diabetes to deal with? A condition in which the pancreas becomes a lazy head in producing or responding to the hormone insulin, resulting in metabolic disorder. It can be treated with artificial insulin and disciplinary diet. We underestimate the benefits of balanced diet as messed up eating patterns is where we get all the troubles from. Let diabetes teach you discipline in life. There might not be a permanent cure at the moment but there is always a way to not let diabetes overrule your life.
