How to prevent the complications of diabetes?

In the early stages of diabetes, when patients feel fine, they often ignore diabetes. But the future complications of diabetes are starting to build up since those early days. The main complications affect kidneys, heart, blood vessels, eyes and nerves. Controlling the blood sugar levels is the main step in prevention or delay of these complications.

Healthy eating and change in lifestyle have a huge role in the control of blood sugar levels. Healthy eating consists of the following:

No sugary foods and drinks
No salty foods
Eating smaller portions, spread out over the day
Being conscious about the amount of carbohydrates you eat
Eating a variety of whole-grain foods, fruits and vegetables every day
Eating less fatty foods
Limiting your use of alcohol
