Type 2 Diabetes

Also indexed as:Blood Sugar (Diabetes), Diabetes, Type 2, High Blood Sugar
Also known as adult-onset diabetes, type 2 diabetes can often be managed by carefully monitoring your diet. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.

The right diet is the key to managing many diseases and to improving general quality of life. For this condition, scientific research has found benefit in the following healthy eating tips.

RecommendationWhyGet started
Add someolive oil Extra virgin olive oil is a good source of monounsaturated fat. Increasing monounsaturated fats relative to other dietary fats has been shown to improve glucose tolerance.
Ask an expertAn individualized nutrition management plan, preferably provided by a registered dietitian who is knowledgeable and skilled in providing diabetes Medical Nutrition Therapy, is critical to managing type 2 diabetes well. This will help address individual nutrition needs, take into account personal and cultural preferences, help maintain the pleasure of eating, and provide practical tools for day-to-day meal planning.
Be flexibleThe American Dietetic Association takes the position that there is not a one-size-fits-all eating pattern for individuals with diabetes, because a variety of eating patterns have been shown to be effective in managing diabetes.67
Feast on fish In one study, incorporating a fish meal into a weight-loss regimen was more effective than either measure alone at improving glucose and insulin metabolism and high cholesterol.
Fight back with fiberResearch has shown a high-fiber diet may work better in controlling diabetes than the diet recommended by the American Diabetic Association, and may control blood sugar levels as well as oral diabetes drugs.
Go vegetarian or veganVegetarians have been shown to have a low risk of type 2 diabetes, and when people with diabetic nerve damage switch to a vegan diet, improvements have been reported after several days.
Keep an eye on the GIWhole grains, beans, vegetables, and fruit help keep blood sugar levels stable because their low glycemic index does not cause blood sugar to spike.
Limit sugar Most doctors recommend that people with diabetes eat less sugary foods like snacks and processed foods and replace these foods with high-fiber, whole foods.
