Tips to Manage Diabetes And Live a Happier Life

Tips to Manage Diabetes And Live a Happier Life
By Barbara Ross

TP 202007 NUTRITION 01Being diagnosed with diabetes is never easy. Once you hear those words from your doctor, you get a million questions in your mind.

What now?
Is my life over?
Will I never get to live a stress-free life again?
Will I be living on tablets from now on?

Fear, anxiety, confusion, stress; these are all going to fill your heart and mind.

According to a report published in 2019, nearly 500 million people in the world are reported to be living with diabetes, and 79% of adults with this disease were living in low- and middle-income countries.

Approximately 95% of patients with diabetes in China have T2D, and the rapid increase in the prevalence of diabetes in China may be attributed to the increasing rates of overweight and obesity and the reduction in physical activity, which is driven by economic development, lifestyle changes, and diet.

China, which is the most populous country in the world, ranks number one in the epidemiological trends of diabetes. Over the past three decades, the prevalence of diabetes in China has sharply increased. Nearly one in two Chinese have diabetes or are likely to get it, making this country's epidemic the world's biggest, with around 11% of its population suffering from the metabolic illness and nearly 36% pre-diabetic.

Even though that is not really good news, you can be sure that you are not alone in your journey. Many people around you are leading happy lives despite having the disease, and you can too.

All you need to do is embrace a few lifestyle changes and be more systematic about your eating habits. Also, take care of a few other things to keep track of your health.

Here are a few tips for you to lead a happier life with diabetes.

Eat a consistently healthy diet, and make it a habit

TP 202007 NUTRITION 02We all know that we have to eat a healthy diet, but we cut ourselves some slack here and there, and maybe we compensate with extra exercise. But as a diabetes patient, that will not do for you.

You absolutely must eat healthy food, for the simple reason that what you eat directly affects your blood sugar. Focus primarily on eating only as much as your body needs. It would be good to stick to a single type or course of meal for each time of the day. Even if you are switching up, be sure to stay away from high carbs or high sugar foods and fatty foods.

Find ways to relieve stress

TP 202007 NUTRITION 03The more you stress, the more your anxiety acts up, and the more your blood sugar levels go up. Hence, you should be very mindful of your state of mind.

We know that our mind is our biggest enemy, so you are better off not thinking too much about anything that destroys your peace of mind. And you should find ways to relieve your stress if you find yourself losing your peace. You can do guided meditation or yoga, or even read a relaxing book. You could also find some relaxing hobbies to do that would help you unwind, like painting or drawing.

Keep track of your changes

TP 202007 NUTRITION 04As mentioned before, it is always a great idea to keep track of things and be systematic about your food intake, exercise, bodily changes and the like. It will give you a better sense of control, and in turn reduce your anxieties. Check your blood pressure at regular intervals, keep track of the things you eat, and if possible, also invest in a good quality blood glucose monitor. Making a record of these things will come in handy for your next consultation with your doctor as well.

Exercise

TP 202007 NUTRITION 05It is very important to remain active in your lifestyle. You need at least 20 to 30 minutes of movement that will raise your heart beat and make you sweat. This will help you bring down your blood sugar level and control your diabetes. You could choose something fun to do, like riding a bike, walking with your friends or going for a run. It can also be a stress-buster and a way to lose some extra weight if you need to. Make it a habit to get together with your friends and take a walk a few times a week, and you should be fine.

Get more regular health check-ups

TP 202007 NUTRITION 06Having diabetes unfortunately makes you more prone to having other health problems as well, like heart disease, kidney issues, strokes, eye issues etc., so you should get regular health check-ups covering all your vital organs. Get your eyes checked every year, and consult your doctor every now and then to make sure that you鈥檙e clear.
