Herbal Remedies for Diabetes Mellitus (High Blood Sugar Levels)
Diabetes is usually a lifelong disease that occurs when our body doesn't make enough insulin, or is not able to use insulin properly, or both. Insulin is a hormone which is produced in the pancreas by the beta cells. Normal blood glucose levels for a diabetic person should be 70-130 mg/dL before meals and under 180 mg/dL, 2 hours after meals.
Blood Glucose Level and Insulin
In general, after a meal, our digestive system breaks some food into sugar which is in turn carried by the blood throughout our body. This leads to rise in the blood sugar level. Due to this, the hormone insulin is released into the bloodstream to metabolize the sugar for fuel and the blood sugar levels return to normal.
The glycemic index measures that how much 50 grams of a carbohydrate raises blood glucose level as compared to pure glucose (Glycemic inedx-100). High glycemic index foods are the foods with glycemic index 70 or higher while those with a glycemic index of 55 or below are considered low glycemic index foods.
Low Glycemic Index Diet for a Diabetic Person
A diabetic person needs a low glycemic index diet in order to maintain healthy blood glucose level. A Diet which contains low glycemic index foods in it, is known as low glycemic index diet. Dried beans, legumes, non-starchy vegetables, some starchy vegetables (such as sweet potatoes, most of the fruits), many whole grain breads and cereals like barley, rye bread etc. are some of the foods that contain a low glycemic index. Meats and fats do not contain carbohydrate in it and hence these foods don't have glycemic index.
It is not necessary for a diabetic patient to eat low GI foods in every meal, but at least one time meal should contain low Glycemic index diet. You can even take a combination of high glycemic food with low glycemic food such as high glycemic index bakery products with protein foods or low glycemic index fruit or legumes because this combination results in a medium glycemic index of foods.
