• Type 2 diabetes mellitus

    Diabetes mellitus is a disorder associated with a metabolic disorder. Therefore, the main thing in the treatment of the disease is diet and properly adjusted nutrition. To put it more simply, it should be remembered that in diabetes mellitus, as a result of pancreatic disease, insulin production - a hormone responsible for the digestion of sugar by the body - is reduced. This leads to increased blood sugar and serious complications. Currently, there are about 150 million diabetic patients in the world, including 8 million in Russia. According to forecasts, these figures can be doubled in 15 years.

    Treatment for diabetes should begin with the organization of dietary nutrition. If you choose the right diet, then with mild, and often with an average form of type II diabetes, drug treatment can be minimized, and even completely dispensed with. But the patient alone can not decide how and what to eat, only the doctor can determine the required number of individual foods in his diets.

    The food of a patient with diabetes should contain the necessary amount of high-grade proteins, the source of which are meat and fish, milk and eggs. Proteins are necessary for building cells, but their surplus is nonetheless contraindicated. A diabetic patient should receive 1-2 g of high-grade protein per 1 kg of body weight per day. This rate is variable and depends on the total number of products in the daily diet of the patient. Read more about choosing the best diet on a specialized site for people with diabetes.

Therefore, limiting the use of fatty foods in diabetes is no less important than restricting sweets. It is necessary to exclude from the diet fatty varieties of meat, fish, fatty cheeses and whole milk.
