More painfully so, the StrictionD Review majority of the Nigerian Diabetic population cannot afford meaningful treatment; and over 80% of the healthy population are ignorant about Diabetes. In contrast to Diabetes, the prevalence of HIV is on the decline, probably because information and aid for HIV/AIDs abound. The Federal Ministry of Health data on HIV State prevalence rates of HIV infection as follows:- 1.8% in 1991, 4.5% in 1996, 5.4% in 1999 and 5.0% in 2003. Carbohydrates are an important energy source for all your body tissues, especially your brain. This is one of the main reasons your body tries to maintain a constant blood sugar level between 72 and 144 mg/dl (4 and 8 mmol/l). Plant products other than green leafy vegetables are carbohydrate foods and include: starches which are found in grain products, starchy vegetables and legumes, and simple sugars such as fructose, glucose and sugars which are found in fruits Both simple sugars and starches are absorbed and converted to blood glucose. This is a good rule to follow ... choose carbs that come in their natural form such as whole wheat, bread and whole grain products Most carbohydrates are plant based foods like fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, corn, wheat, and rice. To make wheat, grains or rice palatable, they are highly refined into flour and used to bake white bread, pastries, pasta or refined cereals. These refined foods are easily digested, broken down into glucose and easily and quickly absorbed into your bloodstream giving you blood sugar spikes. Natural forms of carbohydrates, such as vegetables, nuts, legumes and other whole grain products are high-fiber carbs and take a longer time to break down. These are the unsung heroes in your fight against diabetes ... one of their qualities is their ability to help regulate your blood sugar levels.
