Lung Disease And Diabetes?
good night, my father is being treated with lung and diabetes, which is the right way to cure? What foods and drinks should you consume for diabetes?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Both lung and diabetes treatment should be done simultaneously. The difference is that diabetes is a chronic disease that requires long-term treatment to prevent complications occur quickly, while lung disease (no information about the lung disease in question) for example because of the infection process, if the infection is successfully treated then treatment is considered complete.
Diabetes rarely causes direct complications to the lungs, so maybe the two conditions are unrelated diseases. However, there is a risk of lung disease becoming more severe because diabetics are generally also more susceptible to infections.
Regarding dietary patterns in the history of diabetes, the frequency of meals and snacks a day does not need to be reduced but should use ingredients that are highly nutritious and have low glycemic indications.
One method is a daily diet without rice. Consumption of too much white rice and other carbohydrate sources such as bread or potatoes, not only increases the risk of developing diabetes, but also other diseases, such as heart disease and obesity. White rice has a high glycemic index so that it quickly increases blood sugar levels, whereas red rice has a low glycemic index so that blood sugar levels are more stable.
The use of coconut oil or butter in daily cooking can be replaced with canola oil or olive oil as a source of fat. Snack packaging can be replaced by consumption of whole grains as a source of fiber. Consume magnesium-rich green vegetables, such as spinach, to help maintain blood sugar levels. Consumption of fruits that contain vitamin C such as oranges, tomatoes, or strawberries is also good for the health of diabetics.
Take blood sugar control, control medication, and assess diabetes complications routinely to a specialist in internal medicine.
That's all, hope you can help
