Resources for Diabetes Sufferers
Learn To Manage Your Diabetes
Diabetes is a disease that will take your life if it is not controlled. Learning to manage your diet is a long term project that wears on the mind and body. Every day it is important to find the right foods that will keep your glucose levels on an even keel. If you are over fifty you are set in your ways and this change will be very hard to make.
Every change comes with a change of attitude. The first thing you must do is decide that you will change your eating habits! You must do this because your diabetes is not going away. Every day you wait to make that change you will find more symptoms of your diabetes. Neuropathy is a danger and painful. It will creep up on you before you know it and the longer you wait to make the right changes, the worse it will be for you.
I found a slow carb bread for diabetic lifestyles from Alvarado Street Bakery. This bread has a glycemic index (GI) of 5 per slice. This is amazing when you consider that a typical slice of bread has a GI of 71. Low GI foods are important to the diabetic because they are slow to digest and absorb in the digestive system making them affect the blood glucose less. You may also find this Diabetic LIfestyles bread in health food stores as well as in some grocery store freezer sections.
