The condition of diabetes is a serious one that more and more individuals
are coming to have to face. You can be born with diabetes or else it can develop later on in life, with more and more instances being a case of the latter. Sadly, this is often due to less than optimal dietary practices.
Diabetes is a condition where the body does not secrete insulin in a proper manner therefore this person really has to monitor their carbohydrate intake. The factors that will all have to paid attention to are the types of carbohydrates eaten, when these foods are eaten, what they are eaten with and how much of them are eaten.
The most effective way to deal with this is to consume moderate amounts of slow digestion carbohydrates along with protein or fat to help slow the digestion even further. If you can time these around the parts of the day when you are most active it is even more beneficial because that's when your body is going to 'soak' up the carbohydrates the most.
Depending on the form of the disease you have, you may also be required to inject yourself with insulin (if the body currently does not produce enough/any). If this is the case then you will need to speak to your doctor about the specific guidelines he or she wants you to follow.
Keep in mind as well that exercise has a tendency to increase insulin sensitivity by the body, particularly if you lose weight over time (being over weight makes someone insulin resistant to begin with), so being sure to get yourself moving every day is another great way to manage this condition.
