At AdvantageCare Physicians (ACPNY), we understand that managing your diabetes isn’t always easy. That’s why we’re sharing these healthy habits that you can make part of your daily routine.
Healthy Eating: It’s important to maintain healthy eating habits to keep your diabetes under control. We recommend basing your meals around lean proteins (chicken and fish) and non-starch vegetables (carrots, broccoli, spinach). You should also reduce the portion size of any carbohydrates (pasta, bread, potatoes) to avoid raising your blood sugar levels too high.
Exercise: Find ways of exercising that you enjoy! It could be anything from going for a walk in the park, riding your bike around the neighborhood, or doing yoga. Remember that exercise doesn’t have to be a chore—it can be a fun, relaxing part of your day.
Avoid Smoking and Limit Alcohol Consumption: Smoking and alcohol consumption can make your diabetes symptoms worse, so it’s important that you do everything you can to avoid these unhealthy habits.
