10 popular misconceptions about diabetes

Misconception 1: Overeating sugar causes diabetes
So, how exactly does diabetes happen? The reasons are certainly not totally understood. What exactly is known is that simply overeating sugar isn't likely to cause diabetes. Instead, diabetes begins when something disrupts your capacity to turn foods into energy.

To know what goes on when you've got diabetes, keep these things in your mind: Your system reduces most of foods into glucose, a sort of sugar required to power your cells. A hormone called insulin is created inside the pancreas. Insulin helps cells in your body use glucose for fuel.

Listed below are the most typical forms of diabetes and what researchers know about:
• Type 1 diabetes happens when the pancreas cannot make insulin
• Diabetes type 2 takes place when the pancreas doesn't make enough insulin, the insulin cannot work properly, or both
• Gestational diabetes occurs in pregnancy in certain women.

Misconception 2: You will find lots of rules inside a diabetes diet
For those who have diabetes, you simply must plan your diet. However, the general principal is easy: Following a ‘diabetes diet' means choosing food that may work with your activities and any medications to help keep your glucose levels as near to normalcy as you can.

Misconception 3: Carbohydrates could be unhealthy for diabetes
Actually, carbohydrates are great for diabetes. They make up the foundation of a proper diabetes diet.

Carbohydrates possess the greatest impact on blood sugar, which explains why you are required to watch the amount of carbohydrates you take in when following a diabetes diet.

Misconception 4: Protein is superior to carbohydrates for diabetes
The major problem is the fact that many foods full of protein, for instance meat, are often filled up with fats. Overeating such fats increases your risk of heart problems. Inside a diabetes diet, protein should account for about 15% to 20% of the total calories you take in every day.
 
Misconception 5: You can adjust your diabetes drugs to 'cove' anything you eat
If you use insulin for your diabetes, you might learn to adjust the total amount and type you take to check the quantity of what you eat.

But this does not mean you can eat just as much as you would like, then just use more drugs to stabilise your blood sugar levels level.
 
Misconception 6: You will need to stop trying your preferred foods
There's no reason to discontinue your preferred foods on the diabetes diet.
 
Misconception 7: You must quit desserts when you have diabetes

Far from the truth! You are able to develop many techniques for including desserts inside a diabetes diet. For example:
* Use low calorie sweeteners in desserts
* Reduce the quantity of dessert. For instance, as opposed to two scoops of frozen treats, have one. Or share a dessert with a friend
 
Misconception 8: Sugar substitutes are dangerous for those who have diabetes
Low-calorie sweeteners tend to be sweeter compared to equivalent volume of sugar, therefore it takes a reduced amount of them to have the same sweetness present in sugar. This will cause eating fewer calories than when you use sugar.
 
Misconception 9: You should eat special diabetic meals
The main difference from a diabetes diet along with your family's 'normal' weight loss programme is this: When you have diabetes, you'll want to monitor that which you eat a little more closely. This consists of the total of calories you eat and the amounts and varieties of carbohydrates, fats, and protein you consume.
 
Misconception 10: Diet foods are the most useful selections for diabetes
Just because a meal is defined as a 'diet' food does not necessarily mean it's a better option for those who have diabetes. Actually, 'diet' foods could be expensive and no healthier than foods found in the 'regular' areas of the supermarket, or foods you prepare yourself.
