• Diabetes Diet

    Nutritionists consider medical nutrition to be the most important curative factor in diabetes mellitus.
    Modern treatment of diabetes mellitus includes:
    1. Therapeutic diet( diet).
    2. Medicamental therapy( insulin or sugar-lowering tablets).
    3. Active way of life and optimistic attitude.
    All listed components of the treatment of diabetes mellitus act in a complex way, providing the optimal( in conditions of diabetes mellitus) metabolism. The latter is necessary for maintaining the disease in the stage of compensation, excluding or minimizing diabetic complications, well-being and in order to be a practically healthy person.
    Last decades have brought a lot of new in treatment of a diabetes. In the last century, this diagnosis for many patients sounded like a death sentence. Young people with diabetes, often died in a few months after the diagnosis.
    The number of people with diabetes is growing all over the world, and it's sad. But it pleases that in many respects this growth is determined by the increase in the duration of their life.

    If in the last century in the newspaper chronicle there were reports of death from people's diabetes at the age of 20 and 30, now it is often chronicled that a very famous and talented person left us for a better world at the age of far beyond 80 years, and, by the way, he was a diabetic.
    Analyzing the current statistics on diabetes, we can conclude that diabetes has become almost curable. But in order to maintain optimism, peace of mind, working capacity, to live a normal life, to travel, to be practically healthy person, one must know a lot about your health and your illness. You can envy a diabetic who in time found a skilled doctor who carefully studied the characteristics of his body and his illness( after all, every person is sick in his own way) and who found the key to normalizing his metabolism. But with diabetes, the most important doctor for himself should be a diabetic himself, who correctly follows the recommendations of the treating doctor.
    Diet, or health food, is the oldest method of treating diabetes. For many centuries before the discovery of the role of insulin in the treatment of diabetes mellitus, its introduction into medical practice( 1921 - 1922) and the widespread use of sugar-reducing tablets( mainly from the mid-fifties of this century), doctors of antiquity knew that diabetics are helped by dietand its certain regulation.
    The use of insulin and the treatment of diabetes with sugar-lowering tablets have shown that the diet remains as necessary in the complex treatment of the disease as it was before their discovery.
    The experience of insulin therapy has created the prerequisites for hundreds of endocrinology doctors and nutritionists in different countries to come to a single conclusion: patients with type I diabetes( insulin-dependent diabetes) should receive basic nutritional substances( proteins, fats, carbohydrates) with diet, mineralsand vitamins in the same amount as healthy people who do not suffer from diabetes. As for some vitamins, their number should be slightly increased. Requirements for caloric intake diabetics are exactly the same as for the diet of a healthy person - in the event that there is no inclination to fullness and excess weight.
    With insulin-dependent diabetes, you need to know the nutritional content of food in order to distribute them for 5 to 6 meals a day, in strict accordance with your chosen dosage of insulin injections.
    In diabetes mellitus type II( insulin-independent diabetes), considering a significant percentage of overweight diabetics, the basic principles of therapeutic nutrition aimed at normalizing weight are built in the same way as for people with overweight who are not diabetics. Such a diet with reduced caloric content leads to normalization of body weight in a significant part of patients, while the blood sugar level and metabolism in general are normalized. Therapeutic nourishment for type II diabetes mellitus is so successful that it often eliminates the need for medication.
    But the therapeutic diet( diet) in diabetes mellitus is not always properly evaluated by some patients. The importance of diet is belittled by some doctors, underestimating its therapeutic effect. The reason for this is that it is easier and faster for a different doctor to prescribe insulin or sugar-lowering tablets than to explain to the patient how to make a better diet, explain the chemical composition of products, the principle of using food replacement tables for specific food substances, etc. All these explanations take time.
    It happens so. A different diabetic believes so much in medicines, especially new ones, that he is ready to forget about the role of diet - a very simple method of treatment. And some patients are stopped by the imaginary difficulties of calculating the diet, primarily on calories and carbohydrates. Because of these difficulties, they sometimes do not adhere to any diet.
    To create a diet for the whole day with the calculation of its chemical composition is not difficult, it is only necessary to learn how to use special tables of the chemical composition of products. In addition, the diet is calculated initially not by the patient, but by a doctor, a specialist-diabetologist or a nutritionist. Dieting at home, a diet that is consistent with insulin injections and taking sugar-lowering tablets, is necessarily taught in a hospital with primary diabetes mellitus. Teach this and in specially organized schools for diabetics.

    Diabetes mellitus is a complex disease. He is given a variety of definitions. One of them sounds like this: diabetes mellitus is a disease caused by absolute or relative deficiency of insulin in the body and characterized by a violation due to this of all kinds of metabolism, and first of all carbohydrate.
    Here is the definition of diabetes mellitus given by the Committee of Experts of the World Health Organization on diabetes mellitus( 1981): "Diabetes mellitus is a state of chronic hyperglycemia that can develop as a result of exposure to many exogenous( exogenous - caused by external causes) and genetic factors supplementing each otherfriend ".
    Hyperglycemia - increased blood sugar is the most important sign of diabetes. The blood sugar content of a healthy person on an empty stomach is 60-100 mg%( 3.33-5.55 mmol / l).Sugar is one of the components of food - carbohydrates. In addition to "pure" sugar, carbohydrates include foods containing starch( potatoes, bread, cereals, etc.), which are digested in the small intestine by digestive juices, turning into sugar, and enter the blood.
    The optimal concentration of sugar( glucose) in human blood is carried out by a special regulatory system, the most important element of which is insulin.
    Insulin is a hormone that forms in a specific area of ​​the pancreas, more precisely - in the so-called pancreatic islets( islets of Langerhans).
    After eating food containing carbohydrates, the blood sugar level increases. If it exceeds 160 mg%, the sugar begins to excrete in the urine. In healthy people, sugar is not excreted in the urine.
    Because of a lack of insulin in the body of a patient with diabetes mellitus, foods containing sugar can not be properly digested. This leads to the accumulation of it in the blood.
    In severe forms of diabetes, not only carbohydrate, but also fat metabolism is disrupted. There is incomplete splitting of fats, and poisonous decomposition products are formed in the body - ketone bodies( acetone, acetoacetic acid) that appear in the urine. This may lead to a serious complication of diabetes - a diabetic coma.

    Diabetes mellitus( or diabetes disease) is known since ancient times. Long before our era in Ancient Egypt, doctors described a clinical picture of a disease resembling diabetes. The disease has been known for a long time in China, Ancient Greece and Rome.
    The name "diabetes"( from the Greek word "diabayano" - "I pass through") was first used in the ancient era by Aretei of Cappadocia. The term is associated with abundant and frequent urination - the liquid taken with food too quickly "passes through" our body.
    Aretei cited and signs( symptoms) of diabetes. This increased thirst, the allocation of a large number of urine, fatigue, a sharp decline in strength.
    In 1674, Thomas Willis first drew attention to the sweet taste of urine in diabetes. The term "mellitus" - honey, sweet comes from the Latin word "mel"( "honey") and indicates the taste of urine in this disease.
    The creation by Canadian scientists of Bunting and Best in 1921 of medical insulin preparations was one of the outstanding achievements of medical science. Since 1922, insulin has been used in medical practice, being a powerful means of preventing and treating such a serious complication of diabetes, such as diabetic coma.
    The history of modern therapy with antidiabetic sugar-reducing drugs, used in the form of tablets, began in the 20s of the XX century.60th years are characterized by wide introduction of these medicines into medical practice( sulfanilamides and biguanides).
    In 1943, SG.Genes and E.Ya. Reznitskoy developed full-fledged diets for diabetics with the inclusion of the optimal amount of carbohydrates.
    1970-th year was the beginning of the application of diabetes treatment of highly purified insulin preparations.
    Since 1985, the introduction of human insulin, obtained by genetic engineering, into the curative practice began.

    1. Feeling of thirst, much more pronounced than those around them. While you can usually quench your thirst with a few sips of water or a drink, be it juice or beer, you may need 1 to 2 or more glasses of liquid to quench your thirst for diabetes. Patients drink in a day 2.5 - 4 liters, and sometimes more.
    2. Increase in the amount of urine( polyuria).Patients excreted in the urine for a day about the same amount of fluid that they drink( 2.5-4 liters and more).
    3. Progressive weight gain in some cases( with non-insulin-dependent diabetes), weight loss with good appetite and high-grade nutrition in others( with insulin-dependent diabetes).
    4. Dry mouth.
    5. Severe itching, mainly in the genital area.
    6. Furuncles, pustular and other poorly healing skin lesions.
    7. Severe general weakness and decreased performance.
    8. Increased blood sugar( hyperglycemia).
    9. The appearance of sugar in the patient's urine( glucosuria).
    10. Decreased sexual potency( in men).

    Many scientists consider diabetes mellitus to be a predominantly hereditary disease. It has been established that diabetic heredity really predisposes to diabetes mellitus. If both parents are sick, the child's risk of developing diabetes is very high;if one of the parents, brother or sister is sick, the risk is much less.
    Genetic factors, a genetic predisposition to diabetes, play a significantly greater role in young people than in the elderly.
    The long-term abuse of foods containing easily digestible carbohydrates( primarily refined sugar, jam, confectionery), systematic overeating, obesity, nervous system overload, mental trauma, infectious diseases are risk factors contributing to diabetes mellitus with a genetic predisposition to this ailment,, atherosclerosis, hypertension, acute and chronic pancreatic diseases( pancreatitis).
    It is suggested that the development of diabetes mellitus is possible under the influence of some viruses capable of causing selective damage to the beta cells of the islets of Langerhans located in the pancreas and responsible for the production of insulin.
    Hereditary predisposition to diabetes mellitus may remain hidden for a long time and do not manifest itself if you lead a healthy lifestyle, observe a diet and not be addicted to sweets, do not get fat.
    We can assume that by inheritance only a predisposition to an ailment is transmitted, and not diabetes itself.

    Among diseases of the endocrine system, diabetes mellitus ranks first in prevalence( more than 50% of all cases of endocrine diseases).Currently, the prevalence of diabetes mellitus in the world ranges from 2 to 5%, and in the age groups over 60 years it reaches 8-10%.The incidence of diabetes is steadily increasing. According to American authors, the annual number of patients with diabetes mellitus is increased by 100,000 people. This trend is also observed in Russia.
    As in other countries of the world, we have non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus occurs in only 10-12% of patients. One of the reasons contributing to reducing the number of diabetics is successful treatment with insulin and sugar-lowering tablets, prolonging the life of patients. In connection with the high prevalence and increasing incidence of diabetes mellitus is considered to be socially significant diseases.

    With strict adherence to the recommendations of the physician on therapeutic nutrition and drug therapy( insulin, sulfanilamides, biguanides), there are no threats to the life of the patient, complications occur less frequently and are less pronounced.
    The issue of complications looked quite different before the appearance of insulin in medical practice;with insulin-dependent diabetes, the metabolism was sharply disturbed, a diabetic coma, often leading to death, came.
    Currently, with diabetic coma can only be seen occasionally - in patients who miss insulin injections and grossly disrupt the diet, abusing products containing easily digestible carbohydrates. Sometimes diabetic coma occurs with newly diagnosed diabetes, when the patient did not know that he was suffering from this ailment.
    In the absence of insulin in the body, the concentration of sugar in the blood rapidly increases, and as a result of intense combustion of fats, toxic ketone bodies are formed. Therefore, in no case should not be missed prescribed by the doctor injections of insulin, and reduce its dose is allowed only on the instructions of the treating doctor.
    Diabetic coma usually develops gradually. Comatose state begins with a feeling of strong weakness, fatigue, indifference, drowsiness, headache. Later, disorientation of the patient, confusion of consciousness occurs. The patient is not able to answer questions, soon he loses consciousness, does not react to words and touches.
    In the case of diabetic coma or pre-coma, the patient needs immediate medical attention and urgent hospitalization. The initial signs of a coma may be not drowsiness, but nausea and vomiting, pain in the abdomen. So, the most terrible and dangerous complication of diabetes is a diabetic coma that requires urgent hospitalization.
    Other complications appear, usually after many years of illness and are therefore called late( late) complications of diabetes mellitus.
    The fate of diabetic patients depends primarily on complications from the vascular system. These complications can lead to: visual impairment, kidney disease, diabetic gangrene of the lower extremities, myocardial infarction and other diseases.
    There are two large groups of vascular lesions in diabetic patients: diabetic macroangiopathies and microangiopathies.
    The first group includes all forms of atherosclerosis, which in patients with diabetes mellitus develops earlier and is more pronounced.
    The second group includes, first of all, specific lesions of the vessels of the eyes and kidneys.
    The most common macroangiopathies are coronarosclerosis with myocardial infarction, cerebrosclerosis with cerebral ischemia, atherosclerosis of vessels of the lower extremities and vessels of the kidneys.
    Microangiopathies are expressed in the development of changes in the smallest blood vessels - capillaries. With changes in the small vessels of the fiber on the fundus( diabetic retinopathy), hemorrhages in the eye fundus area, leading to visual disturbance and even blindness, are possible.
    When diabetes is particularly insidious violations of peripheral circulation, mainly the lower extremities( cold feet, spasms of gastrocnemius muscles, pain in the legs during physical exertion).Sclerosing the walls of the arteries in combination with diabetic capillary damage can lead to gangrene - one of the gravest complications of diabetes. Even minor injuries of the skin in the area of ​​poorly supplied with blood of the toes( skin rubbing, trauma of haircutting) in diabetics should be carefully treated, or even better, do not allow these injuries. It is very important to monitor the purity of the skin, given that diabetics slowly heal various skin lesions( boils, etc.).
    Of the acute complications most common in diabetics, it should be called hypoglycemia - a condition that develops as a result of lowering blood sugar levels below normal. Hypoglycemia also occurs when taking an excessive dose of sugar-lowering tablets in patients who do not receive insulin.
    Predisposing factors to the hypoglycemic state are delayed intake of food, the use of alcoholic beverages, especially on an empty stomach. Intensive physical activity also helps reduce blood sugar levels.
    Hypoglycemic reaction can manifest itself as general weakness, hunger, palpitations, sweating, trembling of the hands. Some people have a feeling of double vision, memory impairment, inhibition, drowsiness. Reducing blood glucose for a long time can cause a violation of brain nutrition. Symptoms of hypoglycemia may differ for different diabetics, but the typical early signs of this condition are general weakness, sweating, chills.
    If you have symptoms of hypoglycemia, you should immediately eat or drink something sweet. The best is 3 to 4 pieces of sugar or 3 to 4 tablets of glucose. You can drink a glass of fruit juice or a sweet fizzy drink containing sugar. Any products containing fast-digesting carbohydrates, such as chocolate or honey, will bring relief. Remember: a diabetic must always carry a few pieces of sugar.
    When hypoglycemia, do not use sweets and drinks containing sugar substitutes, they will not help in this situation.
    Regarding the prevention of hypoglycemia, in addition to compliance with the diet and the prescribed dietary regimen, regular monitoring of blood sugar and consultation with the attending physician on the dose of sugar-lowering tablets and insulin is important.
    The late complications of diabetes mellitus include:
    1. Macroangiopathies( obliterating atherosclerosis of the aorta, coronary, peripheral arteries and cerebral vessels);
    2. Diabetic retinopathy;
    3. Diabetic neuropathy;
    4. Diabetic foot syndrome.
    In diabetes mellitus, the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases, such as stroke, myocardial infarction, obliterating arterial disease of the lower limbs, is 4 times higher than in people with diabetes mellitus. With diabetes, unfortunately, 50% of all limb amputations are associated, 15% of all cases of blindness.
    Timely normalization of carbohydrate metabolism, reduction of body weight, if it is excessive, adherence to all dietician and dietary advice can prevent the development of complications of diabetes, significantly delay the timing of their appearance or significantly soften their severity.

    The basics of practical dietology should be familiar to people who need to follow a diet, and with the first three positions - everything.
    These are the rules:
    1) eat a variety;
    2) comply with the diet;
    3) Do not overeat;
    4) correctly prepare food;
    5) to know the calorie content and chemical composition of the daily ration as a whole;
    6) to know the features of the chemical composition of the main products;
    7) understand that with the help of a diet they treat "not a disease, but a patient".
    By giving individual recommendations to a specific patient, the doctor will undoubtedly highlight the most important link in dietotherapy, its quintessence. For example, in some diets, culinary processing of products( say, a complete ban on all fried foods) is placed at the forefront, in others, the composition of nutrients( increase or decrease of proteins, restriction of table salt, etc.) is emphasized. But in all cases it is necessary to take care of the diversity of the diet and the observance of the diet.

    The first rule.
    If the food is diverse, if it includes products and animals( meat, fish, eggs, milk, cottage cheese), and vegetable origin( vegetables, fruits, cereals, bread), then you can be sure that your body will receive everythingnecessary for life without special efforts on your part.
    It is possible to single out the main groups of food products that should be presented in everyday nutrition:
    The first group is milk and dairy products( milk, kefir, curdled milk, cottage cheese, etc.).
    The second group - vegetables, fruits, berries( cabbage fresh and pickled, potatoes, carrots, beets, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, pumpkin, radish, apples, pears, etc.).
    The third group is meat, poultry, fish, eggs( sources of animal protein).
    The fourth group - bakery and pasta, cereals.
    Fifth group - fats( butter and vegetable oil, lard, etc.).
    Sixth group - sweets( sugar, honey, confectionery).

    The second rule.
    Observe the diet - means to eat regularly, at the same time. Then you will develop a conditioned reflex: at the set time, gastric juice will be most actively excreted and the best conditions for digesting food will arise. This rule is universal.
    Your body( especially if you are engaged in intensive physical or mental labor) is not indifferent at all, get food in 3-4 or 10 hours.
    It is widely believed that a fat person, if he wants to lose weight, should eat less and less, say 2times a day. This is not true! Rare food causes a feeling of severe hunger, and such a regime eventually leads to overeating. A person eats more in two doses than with a 4 to 5-day diet, because with a strong sense of hunger it is difficult to control one's appetite. If you began to grow stout, go to frequent, fractional food!
    In any case, eat at least 3 - 4 times a day. For lunch, do not forget about the bowl of soup. Food in the dry, "sandwich food" from day to day invariably lead to diseases of the stomach and intestines. Have dinner try at least an hour and a half before bedtime: an abundant meal before bedtime contributes to obesity and makes sleep restless. But do not go to extremes and go to bed hungry. A glass of yogurt or curdled milk before going to bed is what you need.

    The third rule.
    Body weight is one of the important health indicators. Excess body weight increases the risk of diseases such as diabetes mellitus, coronary heart disease, cholelithiasis. Finally, overeating significantly decreases efficiency.
    The fact that it is harmful to overeat is known to everyone, but statistics say that the number of people suffering from obesity and overweight increases year by year, and it becomes more and more obese among young people. Do not be greedy for food.

    The fourth rule.
    One French cook noticed that cooking is the key to health. The doctor should know himself and be able to explain to the patient himself that if an accompanying disease, such as a peptic ulcer or chronic gastritis, accompanied by increased secretion of gastric juice, is exacerbated in a patient with diabetes mellitus, the rich meat and fish broths are excluded from the diet: they contain too many extractives that servechemical irritant of the gastric mucosa.
    Patients are prescribed a diet that is as gentle as possible for the stomach;the products are advised to either cook or cook for a couple, recommend milk, soft-boiled eggs( or steam omelet), semolina and rice porridge. It would seem nothing special. But very often the patient noticeably improves his well-being, heartburn and pain in the epigastric region disappear due to a single adjustment in the diet: the exclusion of broths and fried foods.
    In the case of diabetes mellitus without concomitant gastrointestinal disease, the culinary processing of foods can be very diverse.

    The fifth rule.
    Caloric content and chemical composition of food are of paramount importance in many ailments, but above all with obesity and diabetes( which, incidentally, are often combined).Correctly selected for the composition of the products play a truly healing role, which, of course, does not exclude other forms of therapy. With mild forms of diabetes, you can often do without drugs, just strictly follow the prescribed diet.
    As well as with obesity, in diabetes, first of all, easily digestible carbohydrates, i.e. Sweets that promote the increase of blood sugar and the formation of excess fatty tissue;they are replaced with xylitol, sorbitol and the like. With excessive body weight, such low-calorie foods as cucumbers, cabbage, zucchini, pumpkin, low-fat cottage cheese are useful.

    The sixth rule.
    It is necessary to consider the caloric content and chemical composition of the main products and dishes in order to develop a therapeutic diet.
    Ancient vaults of traditional medicine, various manuals contain information on how many foods were used in the treatment of diseases. And nowadays, nutrition experts recognize the medicinal properties of honey, koumiss, kefir, beets, carrots, vegetable oils, vegetable and fruit juices, and so on. However, in order to properly use specific products in medical diets, you need to know the characteristics of their chemical composition and effects on the body. So, vegetable oil - sunflower, cottonseed, corn, olive - is famous for its good digestibility. In addition, vegetable oil contains polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E - curative drugs for atherosclerosis. Polyunsaturated acids stimulate protective mechanisms, increase the body's resistance to infectious diseases. Along with vitamin C they help prevent the progression of atherosclerosis.
    Vegetable oils have a pronounced cholagogue action, which hinders the development of cholecystitis. Heat treatment weakens these useful properties, so you should often use vegetable oils not for roasting, but for dressing salads, vinaigrettes, first and second dishes.
    Rosehip is the record holder for vitamin C. Infusion of dog rose is useful for increased fatigue on the soil of hypovitaminosis C, as well as choleretic and antisclerotic.

    The seventh rule.
    This rule is universal for medicine: to treat not sickness, but sick. The current system of "tables" is by no means an absolute recommendation, but only an indicative scheme of dietary treatment. When it is used in each specific case, a significant adjustment is necessary. An experienced doctor will take into account the form and stage of the disease, the characteristics of metabolism, body weight, concomitant ailments, and, not least, the habits and tastes of the patient, if they are reasonable and do not damage the health.
    It is necessary to take into account intolerance and food allergy to certain foods. Do not include in the diet, even very useful in terms of chemical composition, if the patient does not tolerate them well due to a variety of circumstances. And with infectious diseases, after the operation interventions, balanced in composition, enriched with vitamins and necessarily delicious varied food always speeds up recovery.

    Health food is a component of complex therapy, it is applicable for all diseases. Sometimes this is an auxiliary method of treatment, against which the medication is more effective. Sometimes - almost the main medical factor. And very often - a reliable preventive tool, preventing the aggravation of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, gout, peptic ulcer, etc.
    It is not easy to use diet therapy at home - and not only because you need to be able to prepare dietary dishes, but also because the fulfillmentprescribed by the doctor of dietary recommendations requires effort of will. However, care for one's own health should not be shifted exclusively to the shoulders of doctors who care for you.
    Many centuries ago the great Hippocrates wrote: "Life is short, the path of art is long, the opportunity is short-lived, experience is deceptive, judgment is difficult. Therefore, not only the doctor himself needs to use everything that is necessary in the case, but the patient and others, and all external circumstances should help the doctor and his activities. "

    The dietary requirements for diabetics have significant features.
    1. Adherence to diet is especially important for diabetics. The daily ration is divided into 5 to 6 meals. This is done in order to reduce the degree of food hyperglycemia by reducing the amount of food for each meal. And also frequent meals prevent the possibility of hypoglycemic conditions. The recommendations of the attending physician, which accurately indicates the time of ingestion and sugar-lowering tablets or injections of insulin, are being followed.
    2. Exception( and in some cases - restriction) of easily assimilated carbohydrates( sugar, jam, cakes, other sweets).
    3. Use of sugar substitutes.
    4. Reducing the caloric content of the diet in the presence of excess body weight.
    5. Anti-atherosclerotic orientation of the diet( restriction of consumption of animal fats).

    With food, the human body receives the proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals necessary for life.
    The role of proteins is exceptionally high. They serve as the basic material for building cells and tissues of the body, being the source of continuous renewal. Proteins are involved in providing the energy balance of the body, in the formation of enzymes and hormones. A sufficient protein content in the food contributes to the regulation of the functions of the cerebral cortex, increases the tone of the central nervous system.
    The value of proteins is determined primarily by a set of interchangeable and irreplaceable amino acids included in them. Irreplaceable amino acids in the body are not formed and must necessarily come from food. These include: tryptophan, leucine, isoleucine, valine, threonine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine. Replaceable amino acids can be synthesized in the body. Proteins are considered the most valuable if they contain all the essential amino acids. It is known that animal products are much richer in essential amino acids than vegetable products.
    Usually, meat is replaced with fish at the rate of 100 grams of meat per 100 - 120 grams of fish. When you replace meat with curd( if it is fat) or egg, you should consider the presence of fat in these foods and on the days of replacement, reduce the appropriate amount of fat in the diet.
    When diabetes is not recommended to replace meat with milk, as the amount of milk corresponding to the protein content will contain a certain amount of fat, and most importantly - a significant amount of relatively easily assimilated carbohydrates.
    Equivalent products containing animal protein: 30 g of boiled beef, 50 g of veal, 65 g of lean pork, 48 g of chicken, 46 g of turkey, 46 g of rabbit, 77 g of cooked sausage, 85 g of sausages, 54 g of fish,35 g of Dutch cheese, 53 g of low-fat cottage cheese, 1.5 eggs. Equivalent: 200 g of kefir, 200 g of milk, 200 g of yogurt.
    Substitution of products containing predominantly proteins is not at all difficult not only for the doctor, but also for the patient with diabetes. The product - the source of animal protein is replaced by a product of animal origin, the source of vegetable protein - a product of plant origin.1 g of protein gives the body 4 kcal.

    Fats are also an important component of our nutrition. They are part of the cells and tissues of the body, participate in many vital processes. With fats, we get biologically valuable substances: unsaturated fatty acids, phosphatides, some fat-soluble vitamins, in particular A, E, K.
    The qualitative composition of fats entering the food ration is of definite importance. The stimulating effect on the body's defense mechanisms is provided by unsaturated fatty acids. They, as well as some amino acids of proteins, are irreplaceable, i.e.to components not synthesized in the body. The need for them can be satisfied only at the expense of food, primarily due to vegetable oils( sunflower, cottonseed, olive, corn, etc.).
    Fats in comparison with proteins and carbohydrates are the most high-calorie foods( 1 g of fat will give the body 9 kcal).People with diabetes should remember that the excess amount of fat in the diet, especially animal fats( butter, cream, sour cream, lard) is the way to obesity and atherosclerosis.
    The daily amount of fat in the diet of a diabetic patient can be depending on body weight and physical load from 50 to 100 g. Adult patient with a normal body weight not performing heavy physical work, it is necessary to include in the diet 50 - 70 grams of fat.
    The human need for fats is not as specific as the need for proteins, since a significant portion of the fatty components of the body can be synthesized in the body primarily from carbohydrates. Therefore, it is not accidental that if you are addicted to overweight, nutritionists recommend limiting in the diet not only fats, but also carbohydrates, especially easily digestible.
    When preparing a diet, it should be borne in mind that a significant part of food products, including meat, fish, milk, eggs, contain so-called hidden fats, which provide about half the need for an organism of a diabetic patient in fats. Thus, if the dietitian included 70 grams of fat in the day menu, then 35 g( butter and vegetable oil) can be used to dress the salad, prepare a sandwich.
    Vegetable fats( sunflower, corn, olive oil) should be at least half of the fat quota of a patient with diabetes mellitus( and in old age - 2/3).Vegetable oils should be used primarily for filling salads and vinaigrettes, and not for roasting. When diabetes is to avoid very fatty foods, fatty sausages, pork, poultry, fatty cottage cheese and sour cream. It is necessary to limit the use of animals of refractory fats( mutton, beef), as well as products containing a lot of cholesterol( brains, egg yolks), which contribute to the development of atherosclerosis. Usually it is allowed to include in the diet 1 an egg or a protein omelet( without yolks).
    In order to vary the diet, special tables can be used that show the quantities of products containing equal amounts of fat. For example, butter can be replaced with sour cream or cream( corresponding to fat content).Vegetable oils are replaced only with vegetable oils( sunflower oil - olive or corn oil).5 g of butter are equivalent to 4 g of vegetable and melted butter, 6 g of mayonnaise and 16 g of sour cream.

    Carbohydrates are the main source of energy. They provide more than half the calorie content of a daily diet.1 g of carbohydrates gives the body 4 kcal.
    Some components of carbohydrates are an integral part of the cells and tissues of the body. With an excess of their consumption, it is possible to convert carbohydrates to fats. The need for an adult who does not suffer from diabetes in carbohydrates depends to a large extent on the nature of the work performed and the motor activity( energy expenditure) and on average is 400 to 450 g per day. The question of carbohydrates is the most important in dietology for a patient with diabetes mellitus. It is known that carbohydrates consist of monosaccharides( simple carbohydrates), oligosaccharides( more complex compounds that are divided into disaccharides, trisaccharides, etc.) and polysaccharides.
    For human nutrition from simple carbohydrates, glucose, fructose, galactose, oligosaccharides - sucrose, maltose, lactose are the most important( the last three carbohydrate compounds are disaccharides).
    Let us dwell on polysaccharides. They are divided into digestible and indigestible. To digestible polysaccharides include starch and glycogen, to indigestible - cellulose( cellulose), hemicellulose and pectin substances.
    Monosaccharides and disaccharides have a taste, so they are also called "sugars".
    In our everyday life we ​​distinguish the following compounds from all carbohydrates:
    1. Glucose.
    2. Sugar( sugar beet sugar and cane sugar).
    3. Lactose( milk sugar).
    4. Fructose( fruit and fruit sugar).
    5. Starch.
    6. Fiber( vegetable fibers, or, as they are often called, dietary fibers).
    Glucose is rapidly absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract and enters the bloodstream, and then into the cells of the organs and tissues of our body.
    Fructose is absorbed more slowly in the intestine than in glucose. In addition, the enzymes involved in fructose conversions do not require insulin to manifest their activity. This explains the better tolerability of fructose in patients with diabetes mellitus.
    Sugar( sugar beet and sugar cane) contains both glucose and fructose.
    Lactose( milk sugar) is found in milk and dairy products.
    Special attention is paid to the so-called "pure" sugar - beet and cane nutrition - when dieting a diabetic patient. He plays a significant role in the nutrition of a healthy person, and from the diet of a patient with diabetes mellitus is most often excluded.
    The fact is that "pure" sugar is quickly absorbed in the digestive canal, very easily absorbed by the body and promotes a rapid increase in the sugar level in the blood of a patient with diabetes mellitus. Therefore, all types of "pure" sugar, with the exception of fructose, are in most cases excluded from the diet of a patient with diabetes mellitus. As for fructose, in an insignificant amount( about 30 g), the attending physician can allow inclusion in the diet for diabetes, provided it is well tolerated and under the control of the patient's blood sugar level.
    The most important carbohydrate in our diet is starch. In the digestive canal, starch gradually turns into sugar, which enters the blood and tissues more slowly than glucose and "pure" sugar. Vegetables, fruits, berries contain fiber, which
    is practically not digested and not absorbed by the body. At the same time, the fiber( in other words, vegetable fibers or dietary fibers) contributes to the fact that the carbohydrates contained in these plant products are absorbed and absorbed by the body more slowly, without causing a sharp increase in the level of sugar in the blood. The source of fiber, in addition to vegetables, is rye bread, containing dietary fiber.
    We list products containing a significant amount of fast and easily assimilated carbohydrates, which are strictly forbidden to include in the diet of a patient with diabetes:
    - "pure" sugar and glucose;
    - confectionery products containing sugar( cakes, cakes, muffins, waffles, etc.);
    - jam made on sugar, jam, marmalade, syrups;
    - sweet drinks( liquor, sweet wine, lemonade);
    - sweet condensed milk;
    - ice cream.
    Vegetables and fruits are divided into 3 groups by their carbohydrate content.
    The first group consists of vegetables, 100 g of which( we are talking about raw vegetables) contains no more than 5 g of carbohydrates. These are cucumbers, tomatoes, cabbage, white and colored, zucchini, pumpkin, eggplant, lettuce, sorrel, spinach, asparagus, radish, dill, celery( greens), green onion, chicory leaves. Few carbohydrates are found in mushrooms. And also lemon and cranberries.
    All these products can be included in the diet at each meal, focusing on the appetite( but, of course, in a reasonable amount).With regard to these products, you can not engage in calculations of their nutritional value( in terms of the limit of carbohydrates).
    Vegetables and fruits of the second group contain 100 g of fresh weight from 5 to 10 g of carbohydrates. This carrot, onion, radish, beetroot, rutabaga, beans, parsley, celery( root), citrus( oranges, grapefruits, mandarins), strawberries, currants black and red, cranberries, raspberries, apricots, pears, quince, peaches, melon.
    This vegetable, fruit and berries without allowance in the carbohydrate quota of the diet is allowed to eat up to 200 g per day.
    To the third group with more than 10 grams of carbohydrates per 100 g of product include potatoes, green peas, and from fruits - bananas, grapes, pineapples, sweet apples, dates, figs.
    Equivalent: apples - 100 g, apricots - 110 g, cherries - 100 g, pears - 105 g, plums - 115 g, cherries - 90 g, orange - 135 g, strawberries - 140 g, gooseberries - 115 g, raspberries- 125 g, currant - 130 g.
    Vegetables and fruits of the third group must be taken into account( in terms of carbohydrate content) in the daily ration. Some nutritionists do not recommend the inclusion in the diet for diabetes dates, grapes, bananas because of the high content of carbohydrates in them.
    Potatoes containing up to 20% carbohydrates are allowed to be included in diets in the amount of up to 200 - 250 grams per day with an accurate account of the amount of carbohydrates.
    The daily rate of carbohydrates entering the body with fruits is limited to 50 g( this refers to 50 g of carbohydrates, and not about the weight of fruit).In this case, it is mainly necessary to use fresh fruit, since they contain more vitamins.
    This recommendation applies to vegetables. The most useful in terms of the content of vitamins namely vegetables - the same carrots and cabbage. Vegetables are most useful to use in salads, there are raw. In stewed vegetables, a few more vitamins are preserved than in boiled ones, so they should be given preference. Once again, about the benefits of vegetables: carbohydrates from vegetables stand out slowly, gradually, without causing a sharp rise in sugar in the blood of a diabetic patient. Carbohydrates of vegetables create a feeling of relative satiety, do not "mock" the appetite( compared to "pure" sugar).
    Milk and dairy products deserve special mention.
    Without carbohydrates, you can drink up to 0.25 liters of milk. Everyone drunk over 0.25 liters contains 12 grams of carbohydrates taken into account.
    Cottage cheese and cheeses contain such a small amount of carbohydrates that it can be ignored.
    With diabetes, you can eat rye bread containing B vitamins, as well as relatively slowly splitting carbohydrates.
    White bread or rolls are allowed to eat in exceptional cases, for example, patients with concomitant diseases of the stomach.
    Grits and flour products should be consumed in precisely calculated quantities. Only with accurate calculation of all components of a diet, a diabetic patient is allowed to eat cookies or cakes without sugar, on substitutes or saccharin.
    To answer the question, what exactly amount of carbohydrates can be resolved for inclusion in the diet of a patient with diabetes mellitus, is unambiguously very difficult and even impossible. Specific recommendations can be only individual, taking into account age and sex, height and body weight and, what is especially important, energy costs. It should be borne in mind and the tolerance of the body to specific foods and dishes, their effect on the blood sugar in a particular person.
    On the recommendation of experienced German specialists-diabetologists, the total amount of carbohydrates allowed for use in diabetes can be 200-260 g per day. For patients with excessive body weight, this amount is reduced to 120-170 g in order to normalize body weight( of course, for a certain period, depending on the body's tolerance to a particular diet of the
    diet).Patients with insufficient body weight, as well as performing relatively heavy physical work, naturally, should receive more carbohydrates. The upper limit of the daily norm for these specialists is set at 300-360.
    It is important to note that the daily amount of carbohydrates in a diabetic patient is divided into small portions and is taken 5 to 6 times throughout the day.
    The physician expresses the exact prescriptions for the amount of carbohydrates allowed for 1 reception in grams of a particular food product or dish. It is always indicated how many carbohydrates can be taken in the form of fruits or vegetables. For a variety of ration vegetables are recommended to be replaced only with vegetables, and fruits - only fruits.
    Equivalent: 40 grams( slice) of wheat bread, 50 grams of rye bread, 40 grams of bakery products, 100 grams of protein-wheat bread, 140 grams of protein-bran bread, 30 grams of rusks( 2 pcs.), 20 g of peas( beans).
    From vegetables are equivalent: 50 g of potatoes, 90 g of beet, 140 g of carrots, 170 g of turnips, 75 g of green peas.
    Many authors recommend using the concept of "bread unit" or "XE" with the aim of an equivalent, and most important harmless for the body replacing "carbohydrate" products in the diet.1 XE corresponds to 12 g of carbohydrates, contained, for example, in 25 g of rye or 20 g of wheat bread.
    There are tables on which it is easy to establish how much bread, potatoes, cereals, various fruits and other products containing carbohydrates are more or less equivalent in terms of the amount of carbohydrates present in them.
    So, we emphasize the most important thing. Carbohydrates in our body are split and converted into sugar. Carbohydrates are necessary for a diabetic patient, but due to the disrupted absorption of sugar in this disease, the attending physician strictly limits the allowable amount of products and dishes containing carbohydrates. These foods and dishes are divided into 5 to 6 servings, eaten at a strictly prescribed time( especially important is the diet for those who receive insulin) during the day.
    "Pure" sugar and ready-made products containing sugar, with diabetes are completely excluded from the diet.
    The need for an organism in carbohydrates is provided by products whose carbohydrates are digested gradually and more slowly( in comparison with sugar).This is primarily rye bread, pasta, potatoes, other vegetables, fruits. Often nutritionists divide products - sources of carbohydrates into the following groups:
    1. Bread and bakery, flour products.
    2. Cereals, pasta.
    3. Vegetables( a special line is potatoes).
    4. Fruit.
    5. Milk and dairy products.
    This working classification is useful, as it helps to make a more diverse menu. In this case, the doctor determines how many grams of food from each group of foods containing carbohydrates are allowed to eat during a particular meal.
    Vegetables and fruits containing various vitamins, minerals, vegetable fibers, must be an indispensable part of the diet of a patient with diabetes mellitus. A significant amount of vegetables and fruits should be eaten raw.

    Vitamins and minerals
    When diabetes is a lot of attention should be given to sufficient content in the diet of vitamins and minerals.
    With this type of disease due to metabolic disorders, vitamin C, group B, other vitamins and minerals deficiency is possible.
    Vitamins are biologically active organic compounds that are of great importance for normal metabolism and vital functions of the body. They increase the physical and mental performance of a person, contribute to the resistance of the body to various diseases, which can be considered as an important means of preventing them.
    Most vitamins are not synthesized in the human body, so you need a constant supply of them with food or in the form of drugs.
    With a lack of vitamins in the diet, a person develops hypovitaminosis, characterized by a deterioration in overall health, rapid fatigue, a decrease in the body's defenses. Hypovitaminosis states are more often observed in winter and spring, since it is at these times of the year that many foods contain insufficient amounts of vitamins.
    Vitamins are produced by industry in the form of special preparations. However, it is necessary to give preference to natural sources of vitamins and only if necessary to resort to vitamin preparations.
    Vitamins are divided into two main groups: vitamins, soluble in water, and vitamins, soluble in fats. In addition, a group of vitamin-like compounds is isolated, the degree of irreplaceability of which is not proven.

    Basic principles of diet therapy for patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes:
    1. Compliance with the diet consistent with taking sugar-lowering tablets( 5 to 6 meals a day).
    2. Restriction or exclusion( according to the recommendation of the attending physician) of easily assimilated carbohydrates( sugar, sweets, etc.).The intake of sugar substitutes, recommended by the attending physician.
    3. The diet should be high-grade in the content of proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals. And also on the energy value( caloric value).
    4. The antiatherosclerotic orientation of the diet is required, which is achieved, in particular, by limiting animal fats and including in the diet a sufficient number of foods containing dietary fiber( vegetable fiber).
    Speaking about the principles of dietetics for non-insulin dependent diabetics, it should be emphasized that on average 85% of these patients( and according to some authors - up to 90%) are overweight. Weight reduction( mass) of the body is the most important method of treatment.
    In a significant part of patients( up to 40%) it is possible to achieve good therapeutic effect and compensate for metabolic disorders with the help of only a diet, without using sugar-reducing tablets. Most often, the treatment of diabetes solely with diet is possible with mild disease.
    Treatment of insulin-dependent diabetes in diabetics with overweight is primarily a treatment for obesity, the desire to normalize the body weight( mass).At the same time, they reduce the energy value( caloric content) of the diet, restrict carbohydrates, fats, but they provide the optimal amount of proteins and vitamins.
    Body weight is one of the indicators of human health. However, the number of full people is constantly increasing. There are two main reasons for this: increased consumption of high-calorie foods and reduced physical activity.
    Those who want to lose weight should first of all reduce the calorie intake and increase physical activity. Physical loads( morning exercises, walking, swimming, running, working in the garden), dosed taking into account human fitness, contribute to the fact that the fatty tissue of the body is actively replaced by muscle tissue.
    To give up an entrenched habit abundantly, to limit oneself daily in food, to monitor the calorie content of food ration is not easy. Success can only be achieved if the need to lose weight is clearly recognized, based on the fact that weight loss will improve health, increase life expectancy( and this has been proved by both statisticians and gerontologists).
    It can be firmly said that the main role in the fight against fatness and in the prevention of obesity belongs not to the doctor, but to the person who needs to lose weight. Willpower, inner conviction of the need for dietary recommendations, physical activity are very important for effective weight loss.
    Having discarded excess weight, we will feel that we are younger and more mobile.
    To lose weight, you need:
    1. Reduce caloric intake by limiting the amount of carbohydrates, especially easily digestible( sugar, sweets), and high-calorie animal fats( lard, butter, fatty meat).
    2. Include in the diet a high amount of raw vegetables and fruits( caloric, but significant, which creates a feeling of satiety) and completely exclude foods and drinks that stimulate appetite( spices, spices, hot snacks).
    3. Observe the diet and the principle of its fractionality. There is an opinion that, in order to lose weight, you need to eat not only less, but also less often, for example 2 times a day. This is not true. Rare food leads to severe hunger. A person eats more food for two meals than for five, because with excessive hunger it is more difficult to control one's appetite. Therefore, full people are encouraged to frequent frequent meals( 4 to 5 times a day).There is a need at the same time - this creates a certain rhythm of digestion. The last meal should be no later than 2 hours before bedtime, as eating before bedtime helps to increase body weight.
    Here are tips on diet recommended by the Salerno Health Code: "Do not ever sit down for food, not knowing that your stomach is empty and free of food that you ate before it. Dinner excessive is not at all useful for our stomachs, so that we can sleep peacefully, we do not need to eat before going to bed. If you want to return health and not to know diseases, you must drive away the burden of cares and consider it unworthy to be angry, modestly have dinner, forget about wines, do not consider it useless to stay awake after eating, avoiding midday sleep. "
    4. Observe the necessary methods of cooking. With a tendency to fullness, you should not prepare fragrant fried dishes, rich broths, exciting appetite. From the same considerations, restrict or even exclude from the diet acute snacks, spices, spices. Meat and fish are not fried, but boiled, cooked with a reduced amount of salt, without spices.
    Table salt is limited not only because malosolenye dishes are less appetizing, but also because it promotes fluid retention in the body and thereby increases body weight.
    5. Use unloading( low-calorie) days in the diet. People who are overweight and who are trying to lose weight, can enter, after consultation with a doctor, unloading days. Recommend no more than one or two days of shipment per week. Unloading days contribute to the restructuring of disturbed metabolism and the consumption of excess fat contained in the adipose tissue of the body. Regular unloading days can reduce body weight, normalize sleep, improve well-being, gain a sense of cheerfulness. Often they are no less effective in influencing the body than medications. Often, it is fair to say that a diet is also a medicine.
    Unloading days should be carried out with some caution, since there may be an acute sensation of hunger, accompanied by weakness and dizziness. To remove these unpleasant symptoms, you need "home ambulance": strong sweet tea with bread.
    It is better to use a day off for unloading. In due course, when you find the menu of a fasting day that is optimal for your organism, it will be possible to spend it on a weekday, if energy costs associated with work are not significant.
    According to the composition of the daily ration products, the following unloading days are distinguished( 5 to 6 meals a day):
    - curd or cottage cheese: 400 g of low-fat cottage cheese is used in kind or for the preparation of cheese cakes;2 - 3 cups of coffee with milk without sugar and a glass of broth of a dogrose are authorized;
    - apple: 1,5 kg of raw or baked unsweetened apples;allowed 2 cups of tea or coffee without sugar;
    - cucumber: 1.5 kg of fresh cucumber, 2 cups of tea or coffee without sugar;caloric content of cucumbers is extremely low( 2 times less than cabbage, and 3 times less than apples);
    - salad from raw vegetables: 1,2 - 1,5 kg of various vegetables( cabbage, tomatoes, radish, carrot, lettuce, cucumber) with the addition of vegetable oil and a small amount of sour cream;
    - watermelon: 1.5 kg of pulp of ripe watermelon;
    - kefir: 1,2 - 1,5 l of kefir or curdled milk;
    - meat: 300 g boiled without salt meat with vegetable, better cabbage garnish;allowed 3 cups of coffee or tea without sugar, 1 glass of rosehip broth;
    - fish: 300 - 350 g of boiled fish without salt( perch, cod, pike, pollock);allowed 2 cups of tea or coffee without sugar, 1 cup decoction of rose hips.
    - fruit-egg: 5 times a day you can eat one egg and 10 g of apples;Required 250 ml of rose hips without sugar. It is carried out only by those people who have no liver disease.
    Being on a low calorie diet with the inclusion of fasting days, you must constantly monitor your weight. To do this, it is useful to keep a graph of the results of systematic weighing.
    Start better with a curd day. The fact is that cottage cheese, like, however, meat, will create a more pronounced feeling of satiety than, for example, vegetables and fruits. Another unloading day( in a week) can be made vegetable or fruit( depending on the season), meat or fish, and maybe kefir. When selecting the menu of a day of discharge, it is also recommended that you consult with your doctor.
    It is known that raw vegetables and fruits in large quantities are poorly tolerated in certain diseases, for example, with exacerbation of peptic ulcer of stomach and duodenum, gastritis with high acidity or chronic pancreatitis. With these diseases, the treating doctor can recommend a curd or meat( with the use of boiled meat) to a patient suffering from obesity, an unloading day. If excess weight is accompanied by hypertensive disease, cardiovascular insufficiency, which is accompanied by swelling, you should use curd, vegetable and fruit days.
    What are the specific foods and dishes should be included in the diet of those who want to lose weight? These products include the following:
    - bread: rye, protein-wheat, protein-bran - 100 - 150 g per day( 3 - 4 slices);in protein bread, about 2 times less carbohydrates, but more protein and B vitamins than in ordinary bread;Crisp breads are allowed;in comparison with the same amount of bread there are fewer calories in them, but they contain useful minerals and B vitamins;
    - milk products: milk, better skim, buttermilk, yogurt, yogurt, sour cream( 1 - 2 tablespoons are added to the dish), cottage cheese( skimmed) in kind or as cheesecakes, cheese cakes, neoprene cheese;
    - vegetables: uncooked uncooked, cucumbers, tomatoes, white cabbage, colored, zucchini, pumpkin;dishes from potatoes, beets, carrots - not more than 150 g per day;from a large amount of potatoes can get better;
    - fruits, berries: mainly sour and sweet and sour varieties - apples, red and black currants, gooseberries, cranberries, lemons, oranges, grapefruits, plums, cherries, blueberries;sweet fruits and berries should not be misused, since they can be replenished;eggs: soft-boiled and hard-boiled( 1 - 2 per day);dishes from meat and fish: lean meat( beef, rabbit, lamb, game), poultry( chicken, chicken, turkey), lean ham, low-fat fish( cod, pike, navaga, hake, ice, pollock), meat dishesand fish in boiled form;
    - fats in limited quantities: butter, margarine, vegetable oil( a total of 20 - 35 g per day for cooking);Preference should be given to vegetable oil;
    - drinks: tea, tea with milk, coffee is not strong( without sugar), fruit and berry juices from sour varieties of berries and fruits, compotes of berries and fruits without sugar, alkaline mineral water.
    For advice on specific quantities of products used in the daily diet, consult your doctor who knows your health status, age, body weight, energy expenditure. Only he can answer the question of how much this or that product is appropriate to include in the menu of a particular person who needs dietotherapy.
    In case of overweight, the following products should be excluded or substantially limited if possible:
    1. Sugar, sweets, chocolate, jam, marmalade, jam, jam, cakes, cakes, buns, ice cream, other goodies and sweets;raisins, dates, figs, sweet fruit waters, wheat bread;
    2. Too fat cheeses, sour cream, cream;fatty goose, duck, beef, pork, fat, fatty fish( for example, halibut), fatty sausages and smoked meat;
    3. Fried dishes, as they contribute to an increase in appetite;for the same reason it is not recommended to include in the diet sharp, spicy, salty snacks and dishes, pepper, horseradish, rich broths, soups with lots of noodles, pasta, dishes from cereals, legumes, pasta.
    4. Beer, alcoholic beverages are excluded completely.
    Where to start the changes in the diet for those who want to lose weight? First of all, it is necessary to reduce the use of high-calorie foods, preferring low-calorie foods. We must try to transfer the "center of gravity" of the daily ration for the first half of the day, observe the diet( eat 4 times a day), make dinner less caloric, do not eat at night. It is necessary to systematically control your weight.

    There are 2 main forms of diabetes:
    1. Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus( type I diabetes mellitus).
    2. Non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus( type II diabetes mellitus).
    Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus is detected in young people, usually up to 30 years. It occurs when pancreatic cells stop producing insulin.
    Symptoms of type I diabetes mellitus:
    - increased urination;
    - increased thirst;
    - a feeling of fatigue, general weakness;
    - weight loss;
    - a feeling of hunger.
    In type 1 diabetes, treatment includes a specific diet and insulin injections.
    In type II diabetes mellitus( insulin-independent), pancreatic cells secrete insulin, but in insufficient quantities. Non-insulin-dependent diabetes is more common than Type I diabetes mellitus( in about 90% of patients).II type of diabetes is more common in people older than 40 years. Most of these patients are overweight.
    Symptoms of type II diabetes mellitus:
    - rapid urination;
    - increased thirst;
    - fast-onset fatigue, general weakness;
    - irritability;
    - blurred vision;
    - sensation of numbness, tingling in the legs or hands;
    - poorly healing wounds and ulcers on the skin.
    Treatment of non-insulin-dependent diabetes includes therapeutic nutrition, taking sugar-reducing tablets, and in some cases - injecting insulin. In a significant part of cases of non-insulin-dependent diabetes, the only method of treatment is therapeutic nutrition.

    Distinguish between mild, moderate and severe degree of diabetes.
    1. With an easy degree of diabetes, carbohydrate metabolism is compensated by diet alone, there are no serious complications, and work capacity is preserved. More often diabetes in a mild form occurs in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, combined with obesity( obesity).
    2. With diabetes of moderate severity, it is necessary to take sugar-lowering tablets or insulin injections at a dose of no more than 60 units per day. The working capacity is moderately reduced.
    3. With severe diabetes, there are various complications. The insulin doses necessary to compensate for diabetes exceed 60 units per day. The work capacity is significantly reduced.

    A disregard for nutrition, to the interests of one's own health, often ends sadly. In some cases, it leads to hard-to-treat obesity, in others - to gastritis, peptic ulcer of stomach and duodenum, cholecystitis, pancreatitis, etc.
    How should one eat? Can you be guided only by your appetite? And although in many situations it is impossible to draw a clear line between therapeutic and rational nutrition, try to focus on the first, not forgetting about the second.
    Therapeutic diet, or diet therapy, is certainly a method of treatment, but one in which much depends on the patient himself. With medical treatment, the patient, as a rule, follows the advice of a doctor exactly, but dietary recommendations are not always performed in the same punctual manner.
    The word "diet" denotes both the diet and the composition of food. Recommending this or that diet, the doctor-dietician uses not only the data of biochemistry, physiology, nutrition hygiene, but also the centuries-old experience of practical medicine. Hippocrates also wrote: "He who nourishes well, he heals well."However, the doctor is not in a position to regulate absolutely everything, down to the smallest details. The doctor will not stand next to you at the stove and will not stop your hand when you once again go to the fridge.
    A doctor who knows not only your age and body weight, but also your health condition, energy expenditure, tolerability of certain products, can specify the dietary advice of a general nature for you - if, of course, you need dietotherapy.

    Basic principles of dietary therapy for patients with insulin-dependent diabetes:
    1. Compliance with a diet consistent with the administration of insulin( 5 to 6 meals a day).The dosage and time of insulin administration are appointed by the attending physician, which gives specific recommendations for diabetics diet therapy.
    2. Restriction or exclusion( according to the recommendation of the attending physician) of easily assimilated carbohydrates( sugar, sweets, etc.).All sweets contain simple, rapidly-absorbed sugars in high concentration, after intake of which there is a rapid increase in the level of sugar in the blood of a diabetic. Therefore, unfortunately, it is necessary to abandon the sweet. Use sugar substitutes recommended by your doctor.
    3. The diet should be high-grade in the content of proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals, as well as energy value( caloric value).
    4. The antiatherosclerotic orientation of the diet is necessary - restriction of animal fats, inclusion in the diet of a sufficient number of products containing plant fibers( fiber).
    5. The most important dietary rule for a diabetic who receives insulin is to select the foods and meals of the daily ration in such a way that every day to receive with food a strictly defined amount of carbohydrates, which corresponds to insulin therapy. If the doctor allows you to include more carbohydrates in the diet, then accordingly increases the dose of insulin.
    It would seem that everything is very simple: if the food is always the same, then the need for insulin remains the same. However, you need to think about maintaining a good appetite, not forgetting that food and dishes should please us, not only to give strength and energy to our body, but also to improve the mood. And for this it is necessary to take care of the variety of everyday food. Should we completely abandon the food we especially love? Of course not!
    To make food varied and tasty, a system of food substitution is proposed, taking into account the carbohydrate content. It is designed to alleviate the diabetics receiving insulin therapy, a strict balance between the carbohydrate quota in the diet and the dosage of insulin.
    Some diabetics prefer to use this product change system, others - tables of the chemical composition of food. What to prefer - replacement tables based on "bread units" or tables of the chemical composition of products - a purely technical issue, but it is very important to know how many carbohydrates are contained in the food of a diabetic who receives insulin, as carbohydrates of food in the body turn into sugar and increaseits level in the blood.
    Currently, many nutritionists prefer a system of food substitution taking into account the content of carbohydrates. This system was specially invented for those who receive insulin to facilitate their compliance with diabetic diet and replacement of some products by others.

    Here are some examples of the interchangeability of foods.
    A piece of rye bread weighing 25 grams, or several crackers weighing 20 grams, contains 10 to 12 grams of carbohydrates. These bakery products have the same amount of carbohydrates( 10 - 12 grams), belong to the same group of foods - bakery products. They are interchangeable.
    Another example for the same group of products: noodles( before cooking) weighing 20 grams or rice( in raw form) weighing 15 g contain 10 to 12 grams of carbohydrates.
    Examples for a group of fruits: interchangeable apple weighing 100 g and grapefruit weighing 130 g( without skin);banana( without peel) weighing 60 g and a slice of melon weighing 130 g.
    10-12 g carbohydrates correspond to 1 XE( one bread unit).For example, 1 XE is contained in 80 g of raw potatoes, in 250 ml of milk( 1 glass).
    You can make a long list of products, in certain amounts of which contains about 10 - 12 grams of carbohydrates. This list is also called a carbohydrate replacement table, or a table for substituting foods to take into account the carbohydrate content.
    10-12 grams of carbohydrates are contained in 25 grams of bread, 20 grams of crackers, 20 grams of raw noodles, 15 grams of rice, 100 grams of apple, 130 grams of grapefruit, 60 grams of banana without skin, 130 g melon, 80 grams of potatoes, 250 ml of milk.
    When replacing products in terms of carbohydrate content, the following should be kept in mind:
    - carbohydrates contained in fruits( these are basically simple sugars - glucose and fructose, ie grape and fruit sugar), are replaced by similar carbohydrates contained in fruits;these carbohydrates are quickly absorbed into the blood from the small intestine and can lead to an increase in the level of sugar in the blood of a diabetic;
    - carbohydrates, contained in products from groups of baked goods and cereals and flour products, are complex sugars, primarily starch;starch as a complex sugar must first, under the influence of enzymes in the small intestine, split into simple sugars that are absorbed into the blood of a diabetic;
    - products containing starch also increase blood sugar levels, but to a lesser degree than glucose and fructose, so they should be replaced with similar products containing carbohydrates in the form of starch: for example, bakery products - other bakery products or cereals;
    - products from the group of vegetables contain carbohydrates mainly in the form of starch. Contained in vegetables and vegetable fibers( fiber), which are not digested. Absorption of carbohydrates under the influence of plant fibers is significantly slowed down. Therefore, almost all types of vegetables in the usual portions of diabetics diet should not be counted. The exception is the potato: it is taken into account by grain units.
    When considering a diet for a diabetic who is treated with insulin, we are talking about replacing foods only "on carbohydrates," since it is established that proteins and fats do not cause a noticeable increase in the level of sugar in the blood of a diabetic. Moreover, proteins and fats somewhat slow down the effect of carbohydrate-containing foods on blood sugar levels.
    Given that diabetics who receive insulin, most of them young, we must ensure that their diet in sufficient quantities included foods and dishes rich in protein. When compiling the diet of an elderly diabetic, it is necessary to remember about its anti-atherosclerotic orientation( restriction of animal fats, enriching the diet with products containing plant fibers).
    In the preparation of a diabetic diet, the main role belongs to the treating endocrinologist, whose task is to find the optimal correspondence between the prescribed insulin therapy and the diet. It is advisable to select and test a specific menu in the conditions of an endocrinological hospital for the newly diagnosed insulin-dependent diabetes. And in the future, the "experienced" diabetic himself with the help of tables of the chemical composition of products and tables of substitution of foods for carbohydrates under the supervision of the attending physician can make up his daily diet.

    Sugar substitutes are used by people with diabetes mellitus to sweeten food, as it is very difficult to give up the ingrained habit of eating something sweet and tasty for dessert. This is especially important for patients because most of them were addicted to the disease and even abused jam, cakes, ice cream, too sweet tea.
    Gradually, the habit of sweets is weakening. We get used to drinking tea without sugar and jam, we do not even look into the confectionery shop. But at first, during the first months and years of illness, we have to use sugar substitutes.

    In a moderate amount, it is absolutely harmless to the body. Saccharin is 400 - 450 times sweeter than sugar, it is very soluble in water. Since it does not have energy value, it can be ignored when calculating the caloric content of the diet. Saccharin can be added to tea, compotes, jelly. In boiled food it is added when it is ready, otherwise a bitter taste may arise.

    Fructose( fruit sugar)
    Fructose is one of the natural sugars. The peculiarity of fructose is that it is more slowly absorbed and less dramatically affects the blood sugar level than glucose or ordinary( beet or cane) sugar. Especially important is that the absorption of fructose by the body occurs without the participation of insulin. With a mild form of diabetes, fructose can be used( 35 - 40 g per day), in this case it does not have a negative effect on blood sugar level. Fructose can be added to tea, compotes, fruit juices. When boiling, the fructose solution becomes less sweet.

    Sorbitol and xylitol
    These are polyhydric alcohols, sweet to the taste, readily soluble in water. The sweetness of xylitol corresponds to the sweetness of sugar. Sorbitol is 2 times less sweet than xylitol and sugar. These sugar substitutes, the use of which is permitted in diabetes, are stable during cooking and baking( thermostable).
    Xylitol and sorbitol do not cause a significant increase in blood sugar levels. Their soft, laxative and choleretic effect is known. In terms of calories, xylitol and sorbitol are equal to sugar( 1 g yields 4 kcal), which must be taken into account when calculating the carbohydrate quota of a diet of a patient with diabetes mellitus. The daily dose of xylitol or sorbitol should not exceed 35 g, since a large amount of sorbitol( xylitol) can cause diarrhea.

    This is a synthetic sweetener consisting of amino acids - phenylalanine and asparagine. It is 100-150 times sweeter than sugar, has no energy value, and therefore is not included in the caloric content of the diet. Aspartame is destroyed at high temperatures( boiling and baking), so its use is limited to sweetening of tea, coffee and other beverages.

    The main meals for calories are distributed as follows: breakfast - 30%, lunch - 40%, lunch - 10%, dinner - 20%.
    The first breakfast should be eaten in half an hour after the injection of insulin.
    The second breakfast is 2 - 3 hours after the first breakfast.

    1. Meat, poultry, fish in boiled, stewed or fried( after boiling) form. It is allowed to fill( jelly, jelly), beef sausages, chicken sausage.

    Cinnamon is an effective natural remedy for the prevention and treatment of diabetes mellitus.
    Scientists from the Center for Nutrition in Beltsville, Maryland, USA, examined the effects of different foods on the dynamics of metabolic disorders in patients and found that cinnamon extract could become a biological medicine against diabetes.
    The experiment involved 22 people aged 25 to 45 years, obese and metabolic disorders. Endocrinologists characterized their condition as "prediabetes", preceding the development of type II diabetes. In such a situation, the tissues have a weak sensitivity to the hormone insulin reducing the sugar in the blood, synthesized by islet cells of the pancreas. Researchers divided the subjects into two groups. The first daily received 250 mg of an aqueous solution of cinnamon extract;participants in the second, control group, along with food, were given a placebo. At the beginning of the study, and also at 6 and 12 weeks, patients from both groups were taken blood to determine the level of glucose in it. Together with this, the indices of the content of antioxidants in the blood were also clarified.
    It turned out that in people taking cinnamon extract, blood sugar level dropped, and the content of useful antioxidants, on the contrary, increased from 13 to 23%.In patients from the control group, no positive changes were noted. Scientists concluded that cinnamon, possessing significant antioxidant properties, is an effective means for normalizing carbohydrate metabolism. This means that it can be used to prevent and treat type II diabetes, and also to use to prevent cardiovascular diseases that often accompany endocrine pathology.
    The effect of cinnamon on the body leads not only to a decrease in blood glucose levels. Also, the amount of "harmful" cholesterol is reduced and the condition of blood vessels is improved. In addition, if diabetes is already available, using cinnamon, you can maintain a normal blood sugar - for this you should eat a small amount of cinnamon( 1 - 6 g) every day.
    Aromatic spice has a sweetish taste and can serve as a substitute for sugar, which is not recommended for diabetics. And for healthy people with being overweight, this is a very valuable quality. Withdrawal from the body of processed products, slags and toxins, cinnamon promotes the recovery of all organs and systems and a gradual decrease in body weight.
    Cinnamon can relieve the course of type II diabetes( non-insulin-dependent).Unfortunately, patients suffering from type I diabetes( insulin-dependent), aromatic spice will not help much.
    Cinnamon can be added to drinks - tea, coffee, kefir, curdled milk, water, diluted with honey. It is desirable for diabetics to give preference to honey with a high content of fructose( for example, acacia).Add it to the drink in small quantities.
    Many of the cinnamon recipes listed below contribute to weight loss, which is very important, because obesity is one of the factors contributing to the development of diabetes. For the prevention and treatment of diabetes, as well as reducing the level of cholesterol in the blood, it is useful to put cinnamon in various foods( the ways of their preparation are given in the section "Recipes of tasty and healthy dishes with cinnamon").If there is no problem of excess weight, you can pamper yourself with delicious cinnamon baked goods from time to time, but it is recommended for diabetics to put in the dough sugar substitute( in the same amount that is required by the prescription for sugar).It must be borne in mind, however, that not all sugar substitutes can be heat treated. For example, aspartame loses sweetness when heated, and saccharin acquires a bitter taste. Preferred xylitol, sorbitol, sucralose, acesulfame potassium and some other drugs.
    To compensate for type II diabetes it is recommended to consume small portions of cinnamon at least 2 to 3 times a week - in this case, it is possible to maintain the blood glucose level in the norm.
