Type 2 diabetes is a condition in which a person’s body struggles to respond to insulin properly, and as a result, a person’s blood glucose (sugar) levels become too high. If the condition is left untreated, serious complications can occur, including nerve damage, kidney failure and heart attack. It’s important to make some simple lifestyle changes in order to both prevent the condition and reduce blood glucose levels. Eating a healthy diet is one way to do this.
Try a high in fibre and low-sugar cereal (check the sugar content as some can be deceiving). Porridge is a great option, topped with nuts (no salt) and fruit (like berries or banana).
