Three diabetes diet myths busted...
When you have diabetes, your diet is a vital part of your treatment plan.

Read on to discover the truth about diabetes diets as we dispel the myths.

Revealed: Three diabetes diet myths... 

Myth 1: You can adjust your diabetes drugs to cover whatever you eat

If you use insulin for your diabetes, you may learn how to adjust the amount and type you take to match the amount of food you eat. But this doesn‟t mean you can eat as much as you want and then just use more drugs to stabilise your blood sugar level.

If you use other types of diabetes drugs, don't try to adjust your dose to match varying levels of carbohydrates in your meals unless instructed by your doctor. Most diabetes medications work best when they're taken consistently as directed by your doctor.

Myth 2: You need to eat special diabetic meals

The truth is there really is no such as thing as a diabetic diet. The foods that are healthy for people with diabetes are also good choices for the rest of your family. Usually, there's no need to prepare special diabetic meals.

Myth 3: You have to give up desserts if you have diabetes

Not true! You can develop many strategies for including desserts in a diabetes diet.

Here are some examples:
  • Use natural sweeteners other than sugar in desserts. 
  • Cut back on the amount of dessert. For example, instead of two scoops of ice cream, have one or share a dessert with a friend.
  • Make desserts more nutritious. For example, use whole grains, fresh fruit, and vegetable oil when preparing desserts.
  • You can use less sugar than a recipe calls for without sacrificing taste or consistency. Expand your dessert horizons. Instead of ice cream, pie, or cake, try fruit, a whole-wheat oatmeal-raisin cookie, or yoghurt.
