Hello all I am new to this site..


The reason of joining is to now about information related to diabities patient and what they do to remain fit and live like a normal person.


the tips which I know related to food for diabitics are:


Diabetes and diet tip#1: Be smart  about sweets


Eating for diabetes doesn’t mean  eliminating sugar. But in order to get the most enjoyment out of sweets


Diabetes and diet tip#2: Balance your  carbs


Carbohydrates have a big impact on your  blood sugar levels, but you  don’t have to avoid them. You just need to be smart  about what types of  carbs you eat and how you balance them in the rest of your  diet.


Diabetes and diet tip#3: Establish regular eating habits


Regular eating habits are especially  important for diabetics. Your body  is better able to regulate blood sugar  levels—and your weight—when you  maintain a regular meal schedule. Aim for  moderate and consistent  portion sizes for each meal or snack.


 


If some one else want to share some tips for diebetic patient then reply definately , I love to see your lovely suggestions

Hi all,
I am new to this site, I have been looking for a good forum to join for diabetes moral support and I think this is a really good one from what I can see.  My concerns are my eyes, just started noticing problems and had to have laser treatment. Don't think I'm out of the woods yet but am hopeful.  Testing more often is becoming easier but I still fear the terrible lows.  This condition is quite hard on the emotions and psyche as you all know and am hoping this site will help me feel less alone.  Hope everyone had a great day


G'day and welcome


I understand your concerns about your eyes. They are my primary motivator too.


As others have mentioned, keeping your blood glucose levels as close to non-diabetic as you reasonably can is very important for the eyes. Are you type 1 or type 2? If type 2, please read this; it may help you use those extra tests more systematically (click on it): Test, Review, Adjust

 The best thing I can say is get and keep your bs in order.    Keeping them in a good range around 80 to 120 is the best treatment you can do.    Many years ago and without meters my mom eventually lost her eyesight.    The sad thing is it didnt have to happen,   her doctor   did not control or monitor her the way it should have been.
