  • Honey for diabetics


    Is Honey permitted in a diabetic Diet?

    Diabetes control Diet on strictly in terms of intake of sugar and mineral compounds. It is therefore not surprising that " do allow for honey in the patients of diabetes " is frequently asked questions for the benefits of honey.


    Diabetes is pancreas insulin deficiency, which is not produced sufficient or put to good use. Basically disruption of metabolism, especially that of carbohydrates. Sugars and starches ingested cannot be used, and hence eliminated in the urine. Diabetes symptoms include frequent urination, extreme thirst or hunger, weight loss, fatigue, numbness, and infection. There are 2 types of diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce any insulin, whereas, people with type 2 diabetes are also not enough insulin or the cells producing they refuse insulin, and they tend to be overweight, because high levels of insulin, was able to channel that glucose into the muscles, turning the fat into glucose and cholesterol instead. This has resulted in not only obesity, but also very often heart diseases, poor blood circulation in the legs and eye disease. Whereas type 1 diabetes treated with insulin injections, which helps glucose into the cells of the body and maintain blood glucose control of type 2 diabetics usually uses glucose-lowering medications. Most people with type 2 diabetes and are usually in their 40s

    With control the right, many sufferers of diabetes and pre-diabetes (those with blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be considered diabetes) can still be safely enjoyed natural honey.  Before entering the honey into their meal planning, knowing how many of the sweet fluid can be consumed every day. Diabetes is different and each should learn how his body reacts to different foods containing carbohydrates. Remember that the total amount of starch or carbohydrate in the diet is the main consideration, not the amount of sugar. Honey is a food carbohydrates as well, such as rice, potatoes, so just keep in mind that 1 tablespoon of honey has approximately 17 grams of carbohydrates, and take that into account when calculating your total daily intake carbohydrate, diabetics can work out just like other sweeteners or carbohydrates. To monitor the response to honey, blood sugar levels can be recorded before consumed and again two hours later. Also, when buying commercial honey for diabetic patients, make sure that it is pure and not mixed with glucose, starch, sugar cane, and even malt, its better to avoid in the diabetic diet.


    You get (99 percent of the time) " no-no ' answer when you ask a doctor honey on a allow for diabetics. This is not surprising because the idea of feeding honey to regulate blood glucose cons seems a bit intuitive. But do they ever say that clinical studies have shown that pure honey is a healthy choice in diabetic diet than sugar table and every other non-nutritional sweetener such as Splenda, saccharin, aspartame?. Honey require lower levels of insulin as compared to ordinary white sugar and does not raise blood sugar levels quickly as table sugar, that is, it has a lower Glycemic Index than sugar. Although a large amount of sugar-containing honey, mostly consisting of two individual units of simple sugars, glucose and fructose, which are absorbed at different levels in the body. In fact, Dr. Ron Fessenden revealed in his book, the revolution of honey that one more glucose intolerant is, the lower the blood sugar response after the consumption of honey versus high blood sugar response after ingestion of sucrose or glucose. This book further explains why honey is able to perform this regulatory role. The ratio of one-to-one perfect from fructose and glucose which is found in honey facilitates glucose intake to heart, then prevent the overload of glucose enters the blood circulation. And natural honey is the only sugar that has a special ability.


    Furthermore, the use of the monosaccharides fructose is often recommended to sweeten diet diabetes due to significantly lower GI. The problem is, fructose is absorbed differently than other sugars. It is not used for energy as glucose, but stored in the liver as triglycerides. This presents a great burden on the liver metabolism and can cause major health problems related to obesity and health damage further for diabetics. Unfortunately, in their quest to avoid sugar in your food, many diabetics lose points when they begin to plan their diet is about fructose " fruit sugar, diabetic birthday cake, Nutra Sweet ice cream, sugar free candy", etc, which all contain corn syrup or artificial sweeteners which can potentially even more dangerous than regular sugar when it is consumed in the long run.
