Tips for living a Healthier, Happier Life with Diabetes

Q:Ive heard that because I have type 2 diabetes, my risk for heat attack is the same as th at of some who's already had a heart attack.  Is this true?
A:  Yes.  That's because diabetes is itself a risk factor for heart disease and stroke.  Over time, high blood sugar levels can promote the buildup of fatty deposits on blood vessel walls, hampering circulation and hardening arteries.  Also, many people with diabetes have a family history of heart disease, which ups their heart attack risk.  While you cant change those things, you can work on controlling your blood sugar, weight, blood pressure and cholesterol.  Speak with your healthcare team to create a realistic plan.

Q: I've heard bread crumbs aren't good for blood sugar levels.  Is this true?  What are some healthy substitutes I can use when cooking?
A:  Since bread crumbs are refined carbs, they can cause your blood sugar to spike.  If you want a crunchy crust that's carb-free, try nuts.  Coat meats, fish or veggies in crushed almonds or walnuts.  But remember:  If you're frying your food in oil, be sure to calculate the calories of the oil, as nuts will absorb the cooking oil.  Better yet, don't fry- Bake!
