Diet plans


Most diabetics have diet plans formulated by their physician. These plans are often easy enough to follow. In many cases, the diabetic person measures his or her blood sugar level and modifies the diet according to the readings. Many diabetics take doses of insulin, often based on blood sugar levels.


The key to keeping a diabetic person on a proper eating plan is to better understand the sugar and carbohydrate levels in the foods themselves.
