Why is a healthy weight import for managing diabetes?
Diabetes is a growing epidemic in Australia and worldwide. One of the most positive steps you can take towards managing your diabetes and reducing your risk of complications is to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. The reason for this is that when you carry excess weight (especially around your middle) it changes the way your body reacts to hormones like insulin. In the case of insulin, it has to work much harder to move glucose into your cells and doesn't work as efficiently. As a result, glucose backs up in the bloodstream (just like boxes on a conveyor belt) causing your blood glucose leaves (BGLs) to rise too high. Lose some of that excess weight and insulin has a better chance of keeping up!
