Top 10 healthy food items that regulate blood sugar

World Diabetes Day is marked worldwide by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) on November 14, every year. But what is it exactly and what are the difference between the two types?

According to him, as at 2015, it is estimated that 415 million adults have diabetes and it is expected to rise to 642 million by 2040. Diabetes is a disease in which blood glucose or blood sugar levels are too high over a prolonged period.

Below is a list of five such foods that can help you bring down your blood glucose levels.

A diabetes diagnosis means changing the way you live in multiple ways.

Statistics provided by American Diabetes Association prove that, women with GDM, are at high risk of facing miscarriage and have increased chances of developing type 2 diabetes in the future. "Adult-onset" type-2 diabetes occurs when the body can not use insulin produced efficiently because of metabolic reasons, forcing the pancreas to overwork and finally stop production.

What are the signs to look out for with diabetes?

Insulin is responsible to extract glucose from food to make it reach into your cells and used for energy. "Family history is strong and obesity, metabolic syndrome and acanthosis nigricans (dark, velvety skin patches) are usually seen in young patients with type-2 diabetes", says Dr Tanvir Kaur, deputy director general, ICMR.

Comprising hundreds of campaigns, activities, screenings, lectures and meetings, the aim of World Diabetes Day is to spread information about diabetes and raise awareness of the condition.

Women with type 2 diabetes are nearly ten times more likely to have heart disease and those with type 1 diabetes have an increased risk of suffering a miscarriage or having a baby with malformations.

Here are 10 healthy foods to include in one's diet for those who are taking baby steps towards avoiding diabetes. If the disease is left untreated it can cause many further complications.

"When it does that, the channel is opened for the insulin to go into the body cell for them to be broken down into energy, carbon dioxide and water".

He noted that some people might be producing insulin but it is either it was not enough or was not working well enough to allow the glucose to be absorbed into the blood stream. Diabetes is where the body can not properly use insulin, causing blood sugar levels to riseWho is at risk from type 2 diabetes?

In people from southern Asia the disease can appear as early as 25.

Experts suggest the rising rates of type 2 diabetes is due to the obesity epidemic - a key cause of type 2 diabetes. Moreover the plight of many women with diabetes is becoming grimmer year by year.

In an appraisal, she was told she needed "to manage her health anxiety". So many myths are associated to diabetes and its lengthy treatment.

Type 1 can develop at any age, but often begins in childhood.

Every person diagnosed with type 1 diabetes will have to take insulin via injection or a pump.

Those diagnosed with type 2 diabetes will sometimes need to take drugs, alongside living a healthier lifestyle.

And then there can be hypos - when blood sugars drop dangerously low.

In spite of the fact that so many US citizens have type 2 diabetes, there are still alarming misconceptions about the condition.

Diabetes UK is calling for more provision of psychological support for people living with the condition across Scotland.
