The most common type of diabetes is Type 2, previously known as “adult onset” diabetes. But with the huge rise of obesity in children, Type 2 Diabetes is becoming more common in children and young adults. Obesity is a BIG risk factor for diabetes. It has recently been estimated that 2 million adolescents are in a pre-diabetic state.
HIGH FIBER DIET–A HEALTHY HABIT
We have all heard it, but few of us do it. Eating a diet high in certain types of fiber does reduce your cholesterol level and lower blood pressure. Diabetes too can be helped by a high fiber diet of 20-35 grams of fiber each day. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, a diet high in fiber (50 grams a day) improves your ability to smooth out the daily fluctuations in blood sugar levels, stabilize high blood levels of insulin and lower blood fat levels in patients with Type 2 Diabetes. That would mean 12 apples a day, 10 bowls of bran cereal, and 166 oatmeal cookies!! Obviously we need help with our fiber diets.
