November is National Diabetes Month. This is a good time to pay attention to diabetes within your family, and your community.
There are 2 types of diabetes. People with type 1 diabetes must take insulin. People with type 2 diabetes can often manage their health through diet and exercise, and may benefit from medication. Most people in the United States who have diabetes have type 2.
All of us could learn from people who manage their diabetes through diet, as it primarily involves following a sensible eating plan with regular meals. Being active, getting adequate sleep and managing your stress levels is part of the program as well. Who couldn’t benefit from this?
Fish oil, providing essential omega-3 fats, can be part of a healthy diet for people with both types of diabetes.
