Diabetes and Nutritional Biochemistry

Nutrition is a critical part of diabetes care. Adjusting the appropriate measure of sugars, fat, protein alongside fiber, vitamins and minerals causes us to keep up a sound eating regimen and a solid way of life. Individuals who have diabetes have excessively sugar in their blood. Overseeing diabetes is dealing with your glucose level. What you eat is firmly associated with the measure of sugar in your blood. In particular, appropriate management of cardiovascular risk factors such as smoking, physical inactivity and poor diet is important for the prevention of macro vascular disease. Micro vascular complications may also be affected by adverse lifestyle factors, e.g. smoking. However, helping patients to modify certain behaviors should take account of other factors such as the patient’s willingness to change, their perception of their diabetes, and factors which may be indirectly related to their diabetes, such as depression and adverse effects on quality of life.
