Regular Dietary & lifestyle Intervention
A diabetic person has a strong appetite and has issue controlling hunger. It becomes very difficult for diabetics to help with this situation. When they are hungry they try grabbing on to some of the easy to eat and make foods. There are also some myths like you can eat a chocolate or candy when you feel hungry or get stressed. But there are some thumb rules:
- Always wear a hand band or a label on your wrist so that people know you are a diabetic and may need help & assistance
- Carry your glucometer and food and water in your bag so that it will help you in knowing your sugars and also you may eat if they are really low
- Go for fructose rich fruits or dry fruits when feeling hungry or feel blood sugars going low
- Drink ample water and stay hydrated
- Eat your meals on time
- Try to have a great physical health routine: indulge in safe “at home” sports activities, trying doing yoga, mindful stress management activities
