3 Tips to Reduce Your Blood Sugar Rate


    High blood sugar in the body can cause diabetes. Mainly, the cause of it is due to unhealthy diet habits.

    Chairman of PERKENI Prof. Dr. dr. Ketut Suastika, Sp.PD-KEMD explained that death due to diabetes is the number 3 cause of death in the world. Therefore, we need to pay attention to this disease.

    Endocrine, metabolic, and diabetes division staff, Department of Internal Medicine RSCM-FKUI, Martha Rosana said, when you have diabetes, diet regulation is important. However, that doesn’t mean there are restrictions on the consumption of certain foods. Instead of stopping eating certain foods, reducing them, or keeping from eating anything in excess is what should be done.

    Quoted from CNN, Marta said “The bottom line is that when it comes to food it must be balanced, diets, nutrition, calories must all be balanced,” in a media briefing held by Tropicana Slim virtually, Friday (12/11).

    Martha shares tips for healthy living that diabetics can live so that they can always be healthy and have balanced sugar levels.

    1. Schedule

    Having a regular eating schedule is important for those with diabetes. Starting from the breakfast schedule, lunch to dinner should be regular every day. This schedule should not be violated and should become a routine that is never missed.

    2. Quantity

    In addition to eating schedules, those of you who suffer from diabetes must also pay attention to the amount of food consumed every day. However, it’s best if you don’t count this number yourself.

    Consult your doctor regarding your daily needs and how much you should consume. Doctors can also help make meal planning for daily needs.

    “Later, they will be asked what their usual eating pattern is, what time do they eat the most, do they need snacking or not, they will be distributed. More or less,” he said.

    3. Food Variants

    This relates to the components of the food that will be consumed. For this type, it will be calculated how many calories are needed each day, then what can be consumed and how much to meet the nutritional needs to stay balanced.

    “Here, there will be no ban on certain foods, only the quantity will be regulated,” she said.

    Usually, said Martha, the doctor who treats diabetic patients will introduce the concept of my plate or my plate. Diabetics will be taught to consume more fiber in the sense that half a plate should be filled with fiber from fruits and vegetables.

    “The rest is just carbohydrates, be it tubers, rice or corn, and meat or protein,” she said.
