Controlling type ii diabetes involves diet, exercise, medications and insulin. Discipline in diet and medications can keep your blood sugar under control in most cases, unless you have a severe case. If you have an advanced case, you will need insulin injections.
Controlling type ii diabetes with diet requires discipline and attention to detail. Its as simple as knowing what is supposed to go in your mouth and monitoring your blood sugar on a regular basis. Eat at regular intervals, eating the right food and portions. Know the warning signs of hypoglycemia, that is low blood sugar, such as sweating, weakness, hunger, headache, for if it is too low, you can lose consciousness and die. Bring some hard candies or orange juice, take them when you feel the symptoms of hypoglycemia.
Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. They will keep you full and energetic. Eat lots of protein to help your muscles for your workout schedule, and drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated. Eat several small meals throughout the day. By eating more small meals, you will keep your blood sugar at a more steady level, rather than having the ups and downs associated with large meals followed by gaps in eating.
You will need to educate yourself in reading labels and measuring your food intake. Remember, when you see ingredient that ends in “ose” like fructose, glucose, sucrose and the word corn syrup, they are sugar. Staying away from sugar is an important part of controlling diabetes. You will have to cut out all of the sugar from your diet.
Controlling type ii diabetes with exercise requires commitment and motivation. If you want to get better quick, exercise is the best way. Consult first with your doctor. According to the studies, aerobic exercises (walking, running, swimming, biking, treadmills) are the best and fastest way in controlling type ii diabetes. They help in keeping the blood sugar in the normal range. Remember to bring your hard candies/orange juice with you and also some sort of identification tags saying that you are a diabetic. This is very important.
Controlling type ii diabetes through insulin is the hardest of them all. Pricking yourself with a needle for the rest of your life is not a fun thing.Talk to your doctor about using an insulin pump. This maybe more convenient with diabetics requiring more than one insulin injection per day, and who have trouble controlling their blood sugar levels.
