Diabetes Mellitus is a condition where the body is unable to process glucose (a form of sugar).
The most prevalent form of Diabetes is Type II Diabetes which occurs mainly in adults but because of childhood obesity, there is an increasing trend in type 2 diabetes developing among children.
You are at risk from this form of diabetes if you have a generic predisposition to it (i.e. it’s in your family history), if you are overweight, and/or are aged over 40.
In Type II Diabetes, the pancreas still creates insulin, but not enough, – or the insulin does not function correctly (insulin resistance).
This form of Diabetes can be managed (to some degree) with the right diet and exercise, but also with diabetes pills, insulin, and a Dexcom glucose meter.
Some have even reversed their type 2 diabetes with diet but it usually depends on the severity of the condition whether or not this is possible.
A healthy eating plan for a Diabetic person is a traditional low fat diet. This diet would have a ration of 25-30% fats, 50-55% carbs, and 20% protein.
It also eliminates simple carbs in exchange for those that are complex and digest slowly.
