Diabetic Cookbooks

Why write about diabetic cookbooks? The short answer is if someone has a high fasting blood sugar level, they need to reduce their level to avoid the onset of type II diabetes. Diet, exercise and weight loss play a huge role in reducing the level.

High blood sugar is an indication the body is no longer able to produce enough insulin to process the sugar in the blood stream. This brings us to diet. If we eat high glycemic foods, like rice, pasta and bread, then our levels will spike up. The reason for the sugar spike is simple carbohydrates release energy/sugar quickly. So now we’ll review why it’s important to keep blood sugar levels below 100. Then we’ll get into the right foods to eat.

High blood sugar levels negatively impact our health. At the early onset high sugar levels cause you to feel tired and week. You’ll likely notice that you urinate a lot, tend to get sick more often, have blurry vision and get dizzy when you stand up. Continued high blood sugar levels can lead to blindness, kidney failure, amputations, heart disease and uncontrollable cholesterol and blood pressure levels. Clearly a reduction in blood sugar levels has short and long term benefits that are well worth achieving.

This leads us to the challenge of changing our diets, diets we have likely followed for many years. The key is to replace the rice, pasta, breads and other high glycemic foods with low glycemic complex carbohydrates that taste good. Rather than eating simple carbohydrates, we need to eat foods that have complex carbohydrates. Vegetables are an excellent source of low glycemic and complex carbohydrates. This brings us back full circle to diabetic cookbooks.
