DIABETES MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
"No fad diets, No fancy diet, No fat burners, Only home cooked food"
WHAT DIETRIFIT IS OFFERING
India is facing an epidemic of diabetes, with high prevalence in urban areas. Over the past 30 years, the prevalence of diabetes has increased to 12-18% in urban India and 3-6% in rural India with significant regional variations.
Significant determinants of diabetes are age, body-mass index (BMI), waist-hip ratio, low physical activity, and family history of diabetes. The driving forces behind the epidemic are urbanization, sedentary lifestyle, western diet, and fast food diet on a background of genetic susceptibility.
Diabetes can be managed or prevented from deteriorating by incorporating good eating habits and a healthy lifestyle.
We at Dietrifit, deal with Prediabetes, Type I, Type II, Gestational Diabetes with Therapeutic nutrition.

Blood Glucose Level
HOW DAILY ROUTINE AFFECT BLOOD SUGAR?
Diabetes management requires awareness. Know what makes your blood sugar level rise and fall — and how to control these day-to-day factors.
Keeping your blood sugar levels within the range recommended by your doctor can be challenging. That's because many things make your blood sugar levels change, sometimes unexpectedly. Following are some factors that can affect your blood sugar levels.
Healthy eating is a cornerstone of healthy living — with or without diabetes. But if you have diabetes, you need to know how foods affect your blood sugar levels. It's not only the type of food you eat, but also how much you eat and the combinations of food types you eat.
WHAT TO DO:
Learn about carbohydrate counting and portion sizes: A key to many diabetes management plans is learning how to count carbohydrates. Carbohydrates often have the biggest impact on your blood sugar levels. For people taking mealtime insulin, it's important to know the amount of carbohydrates in your food, so you get the proper insulin dose.
Learn what portion size is appropriate for each food type. Simplify your meal planning by writing down portions for foods you eat often. Use measuring cups or a scale to ensure proper portion size and an accurate carbohydrate count.
Make every meal well balanced: As much as possible, plan for every meal to have a good mix of starches, fruits and vegetables, proteins, and fats. Pay attention to the types of carbohydrates you choose.
Some carbohydrates, such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains, are better for you than others. These foods are low in carbohydrates and have fiber that helps keep your blood sugar levels more stable. Talk to your doctor, nurse or dietitian about the best food choices and the appropriate balance of food types.
Coordinate your meals and medications: Too little food in proportion to your diabetes medications — especially insulin — may result in dangerously low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Too much food may cause your blood sugar level to climb too high (hyperglycemia). Talk to your diabetes health care team about how to best coordinate meal and medication schedules.
Avoid sugar-sweetened beverages: Sugar-sweetened beverages tend to be high in calories and offer little nutrition. And because they cause blood sugar to rise quickly, it's best to avoid these types of drinks if you have diabetes. The exception is if you are experiencing a low blood sugar level. Sugar-sweetened beverages, such as soda, juice and sports drinks can be used as an effective treatment for quickly raising blood sugar that is too low.
There are three main kinds of exercise—aerobic, strength training, and flexibility work. You should aim to have a good mix of all three.
Aim to get at least 30 minutes of cardio (aerobic) exercise most days of the week. If the thought of finding 30 minutes too difficult, you can break up the exercise into shorter periods, say 10 minutes here and there, aiming for a minimum of 30 minutes at the end of the day.
Try to build up to 30 minutes gradually by adding a few minutes to each walk or exercise every other week until you can manage 20-30 minutes at a time. But don't stop there—try to keep adding a few minutes over time to reach 60, even 90 minutes, a day to keep building your duration and fitness.
Also, stretch your creativity when it comes to fitting in exercise. Take a walk at lunch, or get the whole family out after dinner for a game of basketball. Remember that walking your dog is a form of exercise. Taking the stairs is exercise. Walking from your car and into the store is exercise—so park farther away.
Strength training helps you to achieve lean, efficient muscles. These resistance-type exercises, adding to walking or jogging, also support strong, healthy bones. Building more muscle in place of fat, is particuarly beneficial when you have type 2 diabetes because muscles use the most glucose, so the more you use your muscles, the more effective you can be at controlling your blood glucose level.
Weight training is one of the most used strength building techniques, although you can also use your own body weight to build up strength—think of pull-ups and planks. When you’re starting a weight training program, make sure you know how to use all the equipment. Ask the staff at your gym how you should properly use the weights, or consider getting a personal trainer to learn the best exercises for you. Lifting weights for 20-30 minutes two or three times a week is sufficient to get the full benefits of strength training.
Menstruation and Menopause:
Changes in hormone levels the week before and during menstruation can result in significant fluctuations in blood sugar levels.
Look for patterns:
Keep careful track of your blood sugar readings from month to month. You may be able to predict fluctuations related to your menstrual cycle.
Adjust your diabetes treatment plan as needed:
Your doctor may recommend changes in your meal plan, activity level or diabetes medications to make up for blood sugar variation.
Check blood sugar more frequently.
