Diabetes Mellitus

Diabetes is a disease in which the body is unable to properly use and store glucose (a form of sugar). Glucose backs up in the bloodstream causing one’s blood glucose to rise too high. Diabetes disorder can be differentiated as Type 1, Type 2, and Gestational diabetes. The diet plan consists of functional foods and superfoods that will aid in reducing blood glucose. The use of omega 3 will reduce inflammation in the body.
