Diabetes is the disease which is related with the level of glucose and it affects the level of consumption of glucose in our body. The food we eat is break down into glucose and other nutrients which are needed by our body to fuel our bodily functions that are absorbed into the blood stream from the gastrointestinal tract. As soon as we take meal the level of glucose in the blood increases and triggers the pancreas to produce hormone insulin and release it into the blood stream. But if anyone is diabetic then he or she is unable to make or respond to insulin properly.
There are two types of diabetes condition type I and type II. In both the condition the level of glucose in the blood becomes higher than the normal but in different ways. Type 1 diabetes is usually known as insulin dependent diabetes. And type-2 diabetes is usually called non-insulin dependent diabetes. In type-2 there is a production of insulin but the body doesn't respond to it normally. Due to this the level of blood glucose increases which makes the pancreas to produce more insulin. Due to this condition the pancreas can wear out and may no longer remain in this condition to produce enough insulin to keep their blood sugar levels in the normal range.
To prevent type-2 diabetes it is necessary to keep a regular check on your weight, you must be active enough and it is also necessary to eat a healthy diet.
For diabetics fiber is the important part of the eating. Increase in the intake of fiber will reduce the level of glucose in the people with diabetes. Though fiber is considered to be a carbohydrate it doesn't raise the level of blood glucose.
The recommended amount of the fiber which must be intake varies but the minimum amount of the fiber to be undertaken from all the sources must be 25 grams in a day. Some experts recommend a range of 25 to 50 grams consumption of a fiber in a day.
Especially the people who don't like to take the fiber foods, it is strictly recommended for them. You can increase the intake of fiber by increasing the intake of high fiber foods like cereals and pastas, whole-grain breads, brown rice, fruits, vegetables and nuts, lentils and beans. These foods will help you to reach you goal effectively and easily. In addition to the intake of fiber always remember to intake 8-10 glasses of water.
