Diabetes often goes unnoticed and can lead to a series of serious health issues – deal with it on time

Diabetes mellitus is a group of health conditions where your body doesn’t use glucose properly. And there are a few different types of diabetes. Most common are diabetes type 1 and type 2 but there are also conditions that are potentially reversible like prediabetes, and gestational diabetes. If you are experiencing prediabetes it means that your blood sugar levels are high but not enough to be categorized as diabetes. On the other hand, gestational diabetes appears during pregnancy and can disappear after delivery.

Type 1 and type 2 diabetes are, however, chronic issues that require quick and proper treatment or they can lead to more serious issues that can cause many other accompanying problems like cardiovascular disease, nerve damage, kidney damage, eye damage, foot damage, preeclampsia, as well as various skin conditions, hearing impairment, depression,  Alzheimer’s disease, or even death. So if you are suspecting that you might be suffering from diabetes, do not wait for a second longer, visit your doctor that will prescribe you proper medication. And then contact us so we can design you a custom meal plan for diabetics Dubai experts dietitians will prepare according to your doctor’s findings.

When it comes to nutrition, if you have developed diabetes, the chances are that you are not eating properly. This means that you will need to change your current eating habits, focus on eating foods that are richer in protein and fibers, and avoid simple carbs that are coming from white flour, white rice, and other processed cereals that have added sugars.
