High Blood Sugar diet chart: According to the World Health Organization (WHO), diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs either when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin – a hormone that regulates blood glucose – or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. High blood sugar, also called Hyperglycaemia, is the outcome of diabetes that in the long-run critically damages many of the body’s systems, especially the nerves and blood vessels. The WHO also mentions that the number of people with diabetes rose from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014.
The majority of people have Type 2 Diabetes, caused mainly by poor food habits and lack of exercise. Shubhda Bhanot, Chief Diabetes Educator, at Max Super Speciality Hospital, Saket, says that a personalized diet plan is important for diabetes management. Bhanot shared with Zee News a seven-day diet chart for a person with diabetes.
