While physical exercise is important and medication may also come into play; the key to managing diabetes is diet. No amount of exercise, medication, and insulin can help you if you do not make significant changes to your diet. If anyone of your loved ones is suffering from diabetes then you should get medical id bracelets for their safety.
 
First, it is important to understand that diabetes is a condition where the body cannot tolerate carbs very well. So, you can not manage diabetes well by feeding your body more and more carbs.
 
To manage diabetes, the first thing to do would be to ignore the conventional advice given by doctors which is to eat Oats, finger millet, fruits, popcorn, etc. with some servings of salad and vegetables.
 
First of all, it is important to understand that diabetes is a metabolic condition where our body cannot tolerate carbohydrates. So, trying to manage it by eating more and more carbohydrates is like trying to cure a drug addict of addiction by giving him/her more drugs.
 
Note the diet that can manage diabetes with NIL medication or a medication far lesser than the usual amount on a high carbohydrate diet is Low Carb High Fat or simply LCHF.
 
It works on the simple logic that since your body has a carbohydrate intolerance, you should restrict its intake. To replace the restricted amount of carbs, you use good fats. Ideally, your daily intake of good fats should be 60 percent of your calorie requirement. The other 40 percent should be half protein and half carbohydrate.
 
Below is the list of the items which you should and should not eat on this diet.
 
Eat-in Plenty: All vegetables growing above the ground (except peas). Some examples are bottle gourd, bell peppers, capsicum, avocados, spinach, fenugreek seeds, zucchini, string beans, bitter gourd, tomato, etc.
 
Onion, ginger, and garlic grow below the ground but are not on the restricted list.
 
Nuts like walnuts, almonds, and pine nuts.
 
Dairy items like soft cheese, cream, cheese, eggs, butter. Avoid milk and if he/she wants to eat curd, use only hung curd.
 
Generous amounts of Coconut Oil. It is best if you cook food in it. It can also be used for direct consumption.
 
Coconut and all its derivatives like Coconut flour, powder, and milk (except Coconut water).
 
For sweetening beverages and other eatables, liquid Stevia is the most preferred option as it contains zero carbohydrates, and does not impact blood sugar.
 
Low Carb fruits like black plum, strawberry, raspberry, etc.
 
Eat-in moderation: Pulses and legumes. They contain a generous amount of carbs with protein so they result in blood sugar spikes.
 
You can also safely eat peanuts. Just be careful not to eat too much as 100 grams of peanuts contain 16 grams of carbs. You can also use cocoa powder to make chocolates and some delicious drinks.
 
Avoid Sugar, honey, jams, jellies, artificial sweeteners like Splenda, sugar-free, or equal, grains, flour, pasta, bread, high carb dry fruits like cashew, dried or candied fruit, refined oils like soy and rice bran, soya in any other form, starchy vegetables like potato, peas, carrots, etc., Fruits.
 
LCHF is the key to good health. Also, please note that the above list is not exhaustive and you will be able to learn along the way once you start following it.

Description

Stage one is the earliest or beginning stage. Many people at this stage are undiagnosed. This is a time family members start to notice that their loved one is a little forgetful. Most people at this stage are still living alone or with a spouse.

 

The next stage is stage two. It is at this stage many people are initially diagnosed. Spouses and other family members notice more forgetfulness, and more difficulty with daily tasks; ie balancing the checkbook, following directions, etc. At this stage you have some people who can continue living at home with the help of spouses, family, and home health agencies; but you also have people who qualify for assisted living residences. People at this stage often need only cueing or reminders to perform most tasks. While people at this stage repeat questions and tales multiple times they usually do not wander away from the location where they are living. Though they may need reminders for activities of daily living because they are not yet wondering they do not yet require a locked residence.

 

Both stage one and stage two are considered mild dementia and it is at these levels that medications are of the most benefit. That is because the medications available now only slow the progression of the illness. There are currently no known medications to completely stop or reverse the progression of the illness.

 

The middle stage is also known as stage three is the beginning of moderate Dementia. In this stage, people have begun to wander off. Most are still mobile though balance could be an issue. Incontinence often begins at this stage. People require instruction and guidance worded in simple steps provided one step at a time to follow instructions or cues. It is at this stage that memory loss becomes the most obvious, as they begin to fail to recognize family and friends. Nutrition can become an issue as people are likely to forget to eat or get up and wander away from the table before finishing their meal. Because of the tendency to wonderful people at this stage need constant supervision or a locked unit in a Dementia Care Residence.

 

Stage four is the end of moderate Dementia. For most mobility and balance have become an issue, as has their ability to follow even the simplest directions. At this stage, people often do not recognize their closest family members. This stage is often compared to a toddler, no seems to be one of their favorite words. That could be because they can no longer understand much of what you say to them, or because that is one of the few words they still know.

 

The last stage of Alzheimer's is known as stage five or severe Dementia. By this stage most all reasoning has been lost, they have lost the ability to communicate, and are no longer mobile. Most develop swallowing problems and need either pureed foods, often with thickened liquids, or tube feeding At this stage caregivers must be extra careful to monitor positioning and swallowing to avoid pressure ulcers and aspiration pneumonia.

 

For such situations whether mild or severe medical id bracelets are very beneficial for your loved ones. As you can find them anytime and anywhere. You don’t have to worry about them being lost.
