Ten Steps To Improve Diabetic Health

  1. Move. Being active 30 minutes a day slows type 2 diabetic progress.
  2. Fruits and vegetables five portions a day lowers type 2 risk.
  3. Drink smarter, an average soda has 15-18 teaspoons of sugar.
  4. Whole grains give refined fiber and are excellent noodles for pasta.
  5. Be protein smart, less meat more almonds, cottage cheese, and kidney beans.
  6. Always eat breakfast otherwise you’ll overeat at lunch causing sugar spikes.
  7. Limit salt lowering diabetic complications of high blood pressure and stroke.
  8. Understand portion control. Keep your waistline in check.
  9. Always get a yearly eye exam. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in adults.
  10. Cook at home more. Studies show restaurants are higher in sodium, fat, and calories.
