If you’re a fan of milk, cheese or other dairy products, remember that they do have an impact on diabetes.
When you have diabetes you also have a higher risk for heart disease. In fact, you’re two to four times more likely to have a stroke or die of heart-related issues compared to someone without diabetes. While it’s certainly not fair, take comfort in knowing you can make changes to your diet to improve the diabetes heart.
Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your overall health, especially your digestive system health.
Fermentation is a process in which food is exposed to bacteria or yeasts, either via inoculation or naturally through the air. Fermentation has been used as a method of preserving food for thousands of years.
Fats are an important component of your diet. The fats that you eat give your body the energy it needs to work properly. You also need fat to keep your skin and hair healthy, absorb vitamins and insulate your body to help keep you warm.
Unlike fat and carbohydrates, the body does not store protein, and therefore has no reservoir to draw on when it needs a new supply. That’s why everyone – including people with diabetes – needs to include foods that contain protein in their diet.
