Health and Human Development - Changes required for diabetes sufferers

Changes required for diabetes sufferers

Change of lifestyle is thought to be the main cause of the increased
incidence of NIDDM in the indigenous population. There is an improvement in
the diabetes when the traditional diet and lifestyle replace the existing
poor quality Western diet of refined carbohydrates, low intake of plant
foods and low levels of physical activity. Similar observations have been
made amongst the indigenous population of Canada and in the Pima Indians
who live a traditional lifestyle in a remote part of Mexico. Their
lifestyle is characterised by hard physical labour cultivating fields in a
mountainous terrain. Their cousins who live in Arizona are overweight and
exhibit a much higher incidence of diabetes.

NIDDM leads to a reduced life expectancy. [1] Complications involve the
kidneys, nerves and arteries, poor circulation especially to the feet and
loss of sight.

* reduce the intake of fatty foods or foods with highly refined
carbohydrates and increase the intake of fruits and vegetables. That means
a decreased intake of pastries, biscuits, cakes, chocolate and other high
fat/sugar foods

* grill rather than fry foods

* avoid adding fat spreads to breads or spread these very lightly

* increase intake of fruits and vegetables, whole grain cereals

* increase regular exercise
