14th November, every year, there are talks and awareness campaigns held to alert people of the alarming rise of diabetes around the world.
Does one have to wait till this day when people around loudly publicise the facts about diabetes, or would one rather wait till the body alarm bells rings in form of some bothersome symptoms?
If the general answer is NO, then thumbs up! If laying importance to 365 days of nutrition and healthy living is one’s motto, then double thumbs up!! If one is already diabetic – borderline or otherwise, but is mindful of one’s condition and in control of situations, then we are on the right path.
Identifying food and its influence on the blood glucose levels is the first step towards fighting the glucose levels. Keeping a diet / food journal on a daily basis is bit of a task, and a boring one at that.
