Diet can directly affect the onset of diabetes and the maintenance of it. Not all culinary practices provide the best means to eat nutritiously and control diabetic symptoms.
This video demonstrates how making small eating changes can significantly improve nutrition without impacting cultural traditions. Older individuals may have the most difficult time transitioning to newer cooking methods, as they have eaten the same foods for many years. Yet simple alterations such as taking the skin off chicken and adding more vegetables to each meal can keep blood sugar levels under better control. With consistent blood sugar maintenance, individuals can enjoy healthier futures with fewer diabetes-related complications.
