Diabetes and High Blood Pressure Recipes, Diet recipes
Last Updated : May 21,2018
Having diabetes (high blood sugar levels) increases the chances of plaque formation in the arteries of the heart thereby narrowing them thus leading to arteriosclerosis. This leads to high blood pressure and if left untreated causes various heart problems and that’s why high blood pressure is termed as ‘silent killer’. In this situation controlling blood sugar and blood pressure both within the required limits should be the priority. This can be achieved by maintaining healthy diet along with the necessary salt restriction and following a good exercise regime under your doctor’s supervision.
You need to:
• Eat small and frequent meals wisely to avoid fluctuations in blood sugar levels.
• Limit the intake of carbs in each meal.
• Avoid the salt on table and monitor its use in cooking. Turn to herbs for added flavour.
• Fill you your plate with friendly veggies like broccoli, cabbage, French beans, cauliflower, ladies finger, cluster beans etc. Keep starchy veggies like potato, yam, purple yam etc. away from your pantry.
• Have fruits in between main meals rather than fried snacks. Fibre rich fruits like grapefruit, orange, apple should be preferred over mango, chickoo, banana, custard apple, watermelon and grapes.
• Switch to low fat dairy products, especially if you need to control weight.
• Say ‘No’ to processed ad refined foods. Include healthy grains like oats, barley, buckwheat etc.
• Avoid the excess use of oil. Cook using low-fat methods like baking and sautéing.
• Quit smoking and alcohol.
• Read the labels carefully when buying ready-to-eat foods.
