Medication may be required as the condition progresses, but making simple lifestyle changes to your diet can help control your blood glucose levels.
The NHS advises you eat a wide range of foods – including fruit, vegetables and some starchy foods like pasta.
Sugar, fat and salt should be kept to a minimum, and you should eat breakfast, lunch and dinner every day – don’t skip meals.
When it comes to your first meal of the day, nothing may sound better than a bacon sandwich. But if you want to control your blood sugar levels, the popular breakfast treat should be avoided, according to Diabetes.co.uk.
