Diabetes is a metabolic disorder characterized by high levels of blood sugar. It occurs especially after a meal high in sugar or a test of glucose tolerance ingestion of 75 g glucose.

Dietary changes that may be helpful Carbohydrates: Eating foods containing carbohydrates, either with a high sugar or high starch like bread, potatoes, processed breakfast cereals and rice, temporarily raises blood sugar and blood insulin. However, diets high in total carbohydrates do not necessarily increase the risk.
Fish: Eating fish may provide some protection against diabetes.
Vegetarian Diet: Vegetarians have a lower risk of type 2 diabetes. In patients with diabetic nerve damage that began a total vegetarian diet no meat, dairy or egg has reported an improvement after a few days. The fats from meat and dairy products may also increase the risk of heart disease, the leading cause of death among diabetics.
Protein: Before opting for a diet high or low in protein should be approved by your doctor.
Fat: Diets high in fat, especially saturated fat, reduce glucose tolerance and increase the risk of type 2 diabetes. Saturated fat is found mostly in meat, fat and dairy products in the skin and dark meat chicken. Instead, it has been that diets rich in monounsaturated fats, like olive oil, improve glucose tolerance. However, overweight people should be careful to consume olive oil, because it is high in calories.
Children avoid milk to preventing type 1diabetes: Most studies indicate that children with type 1 diabetes began to take milk from cow to a younger age than other children. Some children who drink cow's milk antibodies to milk, it has been hypothesized that these antibodies may cause a reaction and damage the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. Preliminary studies have found that early introduction to a formula of cow's milk increases the risk of developing type 1 diabetes; despite some conflicting results also published A good precaution would abstain from dairy products during the first years of life, especially if children have a family history of type 1 diabetes. Recent research also suggests a possible link between milk consumption in childhood and increased risk of type 2 diabetes.
Changes in lifestyle that may be helpful: Weight Loss: Many patients with type 2 diabetes are overweight. Being overweight increases the need for insulin and can even cause healthy people to become pre-diabetic. Excess abdominal weight makes the body less sensitive to insulin. Many studies have found that patients with type 2 diabetes by losing weight improves, so people with type 2 diabetes should achieve and maintain appropriate body weight.
Exercise: Exercise helps decrease body fat and improves insulin sensitivity. Who exercise are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who lead a sedentary lifestyle, and those with type 1 diabetes and exercise require less insulin. However, exercise can induce a drop in blood sugar level and sometimes a high level of blood sugar. Therefore, diabetics should never start an exercise program without consulting your doctor.
Alcohol: Moderate consumption in healthy people may improve glucose tolerance, but some studies have found that alcohol impairs glucose tolerance in elderly and in patients with diabetes. Additionally, diabetics who drink are at higher risk of developing eye problems and nerves. Diabetics should limit their alcohol intake to two drinks a day.
Quit smoking: Smoking Diabetics are at increased risk of kidney problems, heart and other diseases related to diabetes. Smokers are at greater risk for diabetes than nonsmokers.
Note: Diabetics who suffer from undiagnosed renal failure may have serious complications if they consume a diet rich in fiber, and thus rich in potassium. All people with diabetes should consult their doctor before making any changes in your diet.
