Millions of people worldwide live with the word "diabetes" disturbing their daily routines treating it with a dread undeserved for a health condition that merely requires a good understanding and relevant adjustments in lifestyle.
In general, a healthy lifestyle includes nutritious food, maintaining an ideal weight and being physically active. Not surprisingly, healthy eating is an important part of managing diabetes too. Unfortunately, most people translate this to mean abstinence from all their favorite foods, and living on a bare diet where sweets, traditional treats and international cuisines barely find a place. Why, it is piteous that hosts hardly bother to serve diabetic-friendly treats even at parties.
While it is important for diabetics to control their diet to maintain a healthy blood glucose level, this certainly does not mean that one should feel guilty at the very thought of exotic good or delicacies from Mexican, Italian, Continental and such cuisines.
