People with diabetes need a total revamp of their lifestyle and diet. Daily exercise like an hour spent at the gymnasium or an hour of walk per day is a must. People with type 2 diabetes, who are also required to focus on reducing their cholesterol levels, should go for a high-fiber, high-protein, and low-fat diet. Some of the foods recommended for people with type 2 diabetes are oat bran, broccoli, tofu, and soy-based products. It is very important to quit smoking and alcohol to manage all types of diabetes in an effective manner. Experts also advise periodical monitoring of blood pressure levels to manage diabetes effectively.Diabetes happens when your body can't process the levels of glucose your blood needs. Your body turns sugars and carbohydrates into glucose for energy. People with Type I diabetes can't process the glucose at all because their body doesn't produce enough of the insulin to deal with it. Type II diabetes happens when your body still produces insulin, but it can't process all the glucose.
When your blood sugar counts become too high because your body is incapable of handling it, and continue to stay high then you likely have Type II Diabetes. It can only be diagnosed by a doctor, and there are certain criteria that must be met. That includes more than one fasting blood test with high glucose readings, as well as high A1C numbers. Type I diabetes is generally diagnosed in childhood. Type II diabetes is generally diagnosed later in life, in middle age. However, these days we are noticing that it is being diagnosed earlier and earlier.
