Healthy Tips for Diabetes

Diabetes mellitus, or diabetes, is an illness in which there is an abnormally high level of glucose in the blood. Depending on how high your glucose level is and how long it has been high, you may feel fairly well, or you may be so sick that you require hospitalization. Usually, your doctor will test you for diabetes if you have symptoms such as thirst, frequent urination, weight loss, blurred vision, and fatigue. Here are some tips to control your diabetes in natural and Yogic ways:
  • Eat food at fixed hours.
  • Do not overeat.
  • Never eat immediately after a workout.
  • If you are on insulin, ensure you take three proper meals with light snacks in between.
  • Never eat fast; rather masticate and munch your food properly prior to you swallow.
  • Drink a lot of water that will help flush the toxins off your system.
  • Make sure the gaps between your meals are short. Avoid fried foods and sweetmeats.
  • Include fresh vegetable salad in every meal.
  • Have at least 20 to 25 grams of raw onion daily.
  • Do at least one hour exercise daily. Yogasans with Pranayams will be better to control your diabetes.
  • Add wheat bran to your wheat flour (50% wheat flour + 50% wheat bran) as this helps to increase fibre in your diet.
