Diabetes, A Bad Omen Or A Fresh Start?


So you've learned that you've got diabetes. Well after the initial shock, you're stuck with dealing with the lifestyle changes that come with your diagnosis. When you go into the situation knowing that this isn't the end but only the beginning of a new phase in your life it gives you a better perspective on life. Gone are the days of feeling like garbage and not knowing the genesis of the problem. Oftentimes, folks feel a sense of relief when they finally realize what the problem is. The stress of uncertainty lifts and the realization sets in that their life is now on a straight path. Well sort of..

Of course your new lifestyle will demand a few changes. First and foremost your doctor should have put you on a new diet. Depending on whether or not you have Type I or Type 2 diabetes you might even have to take insulin shots, ouch!! Relax, things are going to get only better now that your health is being managed correctly.

Your new diet will consist of many foods with lower carbohydrates, which can of course be a hassle if you are addicted to savories. Sure, there's a downside, but your quality of life should go up immeasurably. A lower carb diet doesn't exclude all of the things that you have come to love, just cautiously watching your diet will help. Moderation and constant inventory of what you are eating is essential to helping you maintain a healthy diet. After you've had to deal with the disease for awhile you'll be a whiz at maintaining yourself. Foods that are high in protein such as meats and nuts will be your friends since the carbohydrate levels are very low. This isn't to say that you should go on a "no carb" diet, management and moderation is the key.

All in all you should be in constant contact with your physician & nutritionist while you are still in the beginning phase of the disease. They'll give you a great beginning and be there for you as you transition into your new life.

Now go out and live it on purpose!!
