Diabetes is Australia’s fastest growing chronic disease and the sixth leading cause of death in Australia today, but a majority of cases of type 2 diabetes can be prevented just by leading a healthy lifestyle. In support of World Diabetes Day today, we share with you this infographic on diabetes, its statistics and how we can prevent it.
Type 2 Diabetes is easily preventable by leading a healthy diet and lifestyle. If you’re diabetic, consume at least three to five servings of non-starchy vegetables daily, as these have a low glycemic index and contain very few carbohydrates. These also help to promote healthy and stable blood glucose levels. One serving equals 1 cup of raw, whole vegetables or a half cup of vegetable juice.
If you have your own cold press juicer (discontinued), try juicing to fulfill your recommended daily intake of vegetables, but keep eating whole vegetables as well to get enough fibre in your system. Check out our diabetic recipes for juicing.
