Making a few simple changes in your lifestyle helps you avoid serious health complications of diabetes, such as nerve, kidney and heart problems. Below are the helpful tips:


• Be physical active: Research shows that aerobic exercises such as swimming, cycling, walking and stair-climbing help to control diabetes by boosting your body’s insulin sensitivity.


• Get plenty of fibre: Eating more fibre-rich foods helps to slow down the absorption of sugar and improves your blood sugar control.


• Go for complex carbohydrate: Cut down the intake of simple carbohydrates such as white rice, white sugar and white bread. Go for complex carbohydrate with low-GI such as brown rice, beans, vegetables, whole grain breads and biscuits.


• Lose extra weight if you are overweight: Losing your extra weight helps to have a better control on your sugar level.
