Non-modifiablefactors are things that we cannot change such as age, race, gender and heredity. Modifiablefactors are things we can actually change if we are determined enough to stay away fromdiabetes. And these factors are our ways to combat diabetes mellitus affecting our lives, naturally.1. Know your risk factors.Is anybody in your bloodline has diabetes? Are you overweight and middle -aged? Do you alwaysfind yourself vegetating in front of television most of the day? If these sounds like you, then youare increasing your chances of acquiring the condition. Thus this will serve as a wake up call foryou to do something.2. DietYou are what you eat. Since we are talking about a metabolic disorder, and blood sugar-thismeans food that we are taking in into our bodies. All that we eat, meat, rice, vegetables will all gothrough a process that will eventually yield glucose as a source of energy.The three basic food groups sound so elementary. But for diabetics, the ratios are essential. Whatyou actually need is 40 - 50% from carbohydrates ( taken from fruits and vegetables, 20-30 fromprotein (meats, fish and chicken) and 20-30 from fats. Proteins and fats are advisable from grassfed and cage free, they are healthier compared to grain fed or animals raised from slaughterhouses.The most important aspect of diabetic diet is moderation, variety and balance. Moderation meanseating the right quantity of foods, choosing a wide variety of food items and eating the correctportion sizes.Small and frequent feedings are highly recommended than eating 3 large meals to preventsymptoms of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).Now you know the ratio of food items, you should also be familiar with the plate method by heart.Imagine a plate, ½ of your plate must go for vegetables, a quarter of it to protein rich foods suchas chicken and fish and another quarter for the carbohydrate rich foods or the rice, bread andcereals.In addition, there are terms and food items that every diabetic and those at risk for diabetes shouldknow.
    • a. Glycemic IndexWikepedia describes glycemic index (GI) is a measure of the effects of carbohydrates on ourblood sugar levels. In simple terms, it gives us the idea which foods increase our blood sugarfastest and the highest. Carbohydrate rich foods are the main concern in managing diabetes. Thisgroup yield 100 percent of glucose, proteins only gives 50-60 percent of glucose whenmetabolized, while fats provide 10 % of glucose.Carbohydrates, even if they belong to same group, are not created equal in terms of their effectson blood sugar. Experts in nutrition, recommends to decrease consumption of high GI foods. HighGI foods increase ones blood sugar rapidly. Low GI foods are foods with GI index of 55 and belowsuch as fruits except for water melon and potatoes. Medium GI foods are from 56 to 69 and highGI are 70 and above.Here are the common snacks which are known for having a high glycemic index that should be onyour watch list.Water melon 103Potato baked 93Potato mashed 86Donut 76Bagel 73Pretzels 83Glucose or table sugar 100You dont need to be a mathematician to be expert with GI index, just simply switch your carbs tolower GI and follow these simple principles.Switch potatoes to brown rice.Use breakfast cereals from oats and bran.Include vegetables and fruits. Minimize watermelon.Enjoy salad with vinaigrette dressing.b. Bitter melon or Bitter GourdBitter melon is a popular Asian vegetable which is gaining popularity in the world of herbalmedicines to treat diabetes. Studies suggest that Bitter melon or Ampalaya helps in controlling theproduction of insulin which promotes blood sugar control. The blood sugar lowering effect ofampalaya are observed to be more effective if consumed in greater quantities. There are alsodocumented studies which show that ampalaya enhances the uptake of blood glucose into ourcells, thus lowering the sugar levels in our blood.However, there is only one catch for ampalaya, true to its name, it taste bitter. Many people couldnot tolerate the taste of ampalaya. Many companies in Asia are actually distributing ampalayaextracts in capsule form to address this concern. However, nothing compares to the natural way,eating the real thing is always better than the processed ones.
    • 3. ExerciseThe benefits of exercise in our body are enormous. For diabetics, exercise causes our body to useup glucose faster, thus, lowering our blood sugar level. Exercise greatly help individual because ofits effects in insulin sensitivity.One of the major causes of diabetes mellitus is obesity; adipose tissue or the fats are believed tocause insulin resistance. Exercise burn fats.The minimum requirement that our body needs is only 20-30 minutes of exercise 3-4 times aweek. If your time permits, daily exercise is more beneficial. Exercise need not to be tooexhausting or too tiring for you. Brisk walking tops the list of simple exercises. Incorporate exercisein your daily life by not actually changing your daily activities such as working in a garden on weekends, enjoying stairs than elevators or walk instead of driving sometimes.Exercise reduces the severity of diabetes mellitus and reduces the risk of life threateningcomplications.4. HydrotherapyHydrotherapy is also one way in controlling blood sugar level the natural way, coupled with dietand exercise. Hydrotherapy is the use of water to revitalize, restore and maintain health.
