Healthy Diet for People with Type 1 Diabetes

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2012-11-29 11:49

Healthy Diet for People with Type 1 DiabetesThe patients with typ 1 diabetes are usually recommended to eat a healthy and balanced diet. A proper diet can help manage blood sugar level better and reduce the incidence of other complications.

In type 1 diabetes, as the body no longer produces insulin, the patients have to inject it to control blood sugar level. To keep the blood sugar level close to normal after eating, the patients should avoid foods which can cause large fluctuation of blood sugar level.


Carbohydrate foods have the greatest effect on blood sugar level and it is the starchy foods like bread, cereals, potatoes, rice etc. Carbohydrate foods can be broken down into glucose in body and then absorbed from the intestine into the bloodstream. Therefore, it can cause obvious rise in blood sugar level.


It is believed that the patients with type 1 diabetes should avoid eating sugar because it can elevate blood sugar level. In fact, it is not always true. Table sugar does not have so much impact on blood sugar as people image.


Excess proteins should be avoided by patients with type 1 diabetes. It is because extra proteins in the diet that is not needed by the body is converted to glucose by the liver. So high intake of proteins can cause an increase in blood sugar level.


Fat can delay the rate at which the stomach empties. Therefore, it can slow down the absorption of glucose from carbohydrate foods to slow down the rise in blood sugar level after a meal. However, high-fat diet is not a good diet option for people with type 1 diabetes because it can increase the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases significantly.
