Many people have diabetes and not know how to deal with them and how to live with them. Here are some ways on how you can deal with diabetes and carry on with your daily lives and schedules:
- Take your medication-
It is so obvious that there is no need to mention it, but it has the biggest impact on anyone who has diabetes. Insulin, whether in injections or a pump for type 1 diabetics or pill form for people with type 1 diabetes is life-saving. Take your medication on time, and you can live a long, healthy, happy life with diabetes. Do not take your medication and you can get very ill, very fast.
- Eat a healthy diet–
Eating healthy food is a crucial aspect for anyone with a diabetic condition. People with diabetes do not have to eat any special ‘diabetes diet,’ but they have to eat a healthy diet that we should all be eating including little to no fast food, fizzy drinks, junk food, sweets, and cakes. Along with lots of fresh vegetables, good quality proteins, some fruit, the right kind of fats and a small number of whole grain carbs. We all know that refined carbohydrates like pasta and white rice and doughnuts and cookies are bad for our health as diabetics, it is vital to understand this and respect it. That is not to say there is no room for any treats in life.
- Exercise regularly-
Moderate exercise three times each week is the way to a stable life with diabetes. We can always discover 30 minutes three times each week to go for a walk, or complete a yoga class, or run around the square. What’s more, in the long haul, that will be greatly improved for your wellbeing than one major gym session once every week.
- Manage your stress-
Stress is terrible for everyone, but it is particularly bad for those people suffering from diabetes because it releases the hormone called hormone cortisol, which inhibits the effects of insulin which means the high blood sugar, which makes you feel tired and crank as well as stressed. You can always prefer to find out that short meditations (five minutes or less) work wonders for many stress levels.
- Get enough sleep-
It is really important for people with a diabetic condition to get enough sleep. Not only they have the mental and energy clarity to deal with life along with a chronic illness on top of everything else in your life, but due to the fact while you sleep your body clears out the cortisol from the system. As we already know that too much cortisol is bad for blood sugar.
