5 Major Tips for Diabetics

Have you been diagnosed with Diabetes and looking for some help and guidance?

Here, we explore 5 major tips to living with diabetes. 

1. Read the Labels

Depending on what type of Diabetes you've been diagnosed as, you may need to limit or avoid certain foods. 

Although these 'bad' foods are on your radar, it's still important to check the labels on food packaging. A good indication that a product suitable for Diabetics is the Sugar Wise certification.

The Skinny Food Co products are Sugar Wise Certified! You can find out more about this certification here.

2. Keep active

If you have diabetes, being active makes your body more sensitive to insulin (the hormone that allows cells in your body to use blood sugar for energy), which helps manage your diabetes.

Physical activity also helps control blood sugar levels and improves cholesterol levels to help protect you against heart disease. 

3. Follow creators and bloggers

Follow online accounts and advocates for Diabetes - there's some much help, guidance and advice online for Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes! Ranging from influencers, YouTubers and bloggers - it's always a good idea to engage with the community.

Here are some Diabetic Influencers and Bloggers to follow:
