a) Understanding the digestion of carbohydrates.
The energy supply to our body comes mainly from carbohydrates and lipids. The carbohydrates we eat come in various forms (sugars, fruits, breads, rice, bananas, corn flour, pasta, starches, etc.). Once ingested, carbohydrates are transformed into glucose by the action of digestive juices. (saliva, gastric juices, etc.) during digestion. Under the action of insulin secreted by the pancreas, glucose passes into the blood and is then used directly as fuel by the body or stored in the form of glycogen in the liver and muscles. When the meal is slow in coming or the effort is prolonged, the same glycogen is transformed into glucose and used again as fuel under the action of the insulin secreted by the pancreas. Hence the need to eat at regular times without overeating and without snacking so as not to disturb the system.
b) Understand the causes of diabetes.
Never forget, the disease is almost always a consequence of our way of life in the near or distant past or even very distant. This way of seeing the disease should lead us to review our way of life on all levels. Diabetes is a bad assimilation of sugar by the body due to an organic or food failure :( failing liver and pancreas, or abuse of carbohydrates and lipids without physical exercises). The day on which the state of diabetes is declared is only the day of his birth. The body had been preparing for it for a long time with a lot of alarm bells (sugary urine attracting flies and ants, frequent urination, intense thirst, significant weight loss, permanent feeling of hunger, unexplained fatigue, malaise, blurred vision, etc.). But we don't listen to our body which calls out to us all the time about our bad life. Our body talks to us all the time but we don't pay attention. We only care about our stomach and our exterior aspect, neglecting our interior. And voila, one day the disease is given birth. It is even proven that the cases of organic failure of the liver or pancreas are rare. The same causes always lead to the same effects. Let us never forget, obesity is a factor favoring diabetes but anyone can suffer from it. The hereditary factor and the eating habits inherited from parents and the community should not be neglected.Let us keep in mind that the main cause of diabetes is the lifestyle (abuse of carbohydrates and lipids, overeating, abuse in overcreating, snacking, force-feeding, lack of physical exercise, stress, etc.) Anyway, the abuse of carbohydrates and fats over a long period always or almost always ends in diabetes. We must always take care of the happy medium because the abuse in everything is harmful. A food, however tasty, becomes a poison for the organism if it is taken in excess. Let us never forget it, the happy medium is the first law of dietetics. You are invited to a table. No one will force you to eat everything, drink everything and mix everything. God has created you free. Manage this freedom well Eat only what is enough and not excessively so as not to tire your liver I will talk about bad food combinations in another section There are three types of diabetes: type 1 diabetes or insulin-dependent or diabetes sweet type (the secreted insulin is insufficient for the digestion of the sugar ingested especially in children), type 2 or non-insulin dependent diabetes (diabetes in obese and overweight people, insulin is well secreted but not used really) and gestational diabetes (transient diabetes in pregnant women).

a) Diet and advice.
The diet of the diabetic must be individualized according to the type of diabetes, the living environment, the basic diet, weight, professional and physical activity, daily energy needs without neglecting cardiovascular risk factors and coma-diabetic.It is a controlled diet in carbohydrates and lipids because the goal is to normalize blood sugar, cancel glycosuria, maintain a normal weight and avoid hypoglycaemia and hyperglycaemia As a general rule the diabetic must ban fast sugars from his diet and favor slow sugars. He must avoid white sugar, chocolate, pastries, ice cream, jams, cookies, sugary drinks, fruit juices unless hypoglycemia. He can take the good honey, dried fruits and nuts moderately once at the end of a meal. Acid fruits should be avoided during meals because of the risk of gastric fermentation. Tobacco and alcohol should be avoided. Water (mineral if possible) is the only drink necessary and useful at the rate of a liter and a half per day.It can be carbonated or flavored with sweeteners but not sweet.
Dairy products and eggs are tolerated. If possible, replace meat with fish and white rice with country rice. You should give full preference to green vegetables and raw vegetables. Seriously reduce the consumption of fats, especially of animal origin. Replace the butter with vegetable margarine. Avoid adding salt at the table. Recommended oils are virgin olive oil, sunflower oil, corn, soybean, rapeseed, red village oil, etc. . Breads and starches (rice, corn flour, pasta, etc.) should be eaten in controlled amounts with each meal because of their sugar and energy intake. You must take into account your daily energy needs to fuel yourself. The center can advise you on an appropriate diet on your request. But no bigotry, no fanaticism, be flexible in your way of eating. An overeating once in passing is not yet bad. The danger lies in repeating bad deeds. However, you should definitely avoid snacking; force-feeding and snacking are contributing and very aggravating factors. This is the common denominator of the great dibetics. People at risk (obese subjects, children of diabetic parents, etc.) must eat according to their daily energy needs in order to avoid overloading the body with fat over a long period. The center can help you.
Every day you should walk for about 45 minutes, and especially in the evening outdoors, without getting tired. It is proven that walking regulates blood sugar in diabetics. Let us not forget that walking has a very beneficial effect on blood circulation and the regulation of several hormones. You have to walk, move, tinker with gardening, ect. Create situations yourself so as not to be static because the body is made to move.
b) Diet for insulin-dependent diabetes.
It should be as close as possible to normal food, regular and especially without snacking. Eat without excess according to your energy needs. Two or three meals a day is enough and nothing more between meals. Prefer whole grains to refined products (country rice, corn flour, potatoes, yams, cassava, bananas, etc.), lean meats and fish over fatty meats and fish. Chew food well because the stomach has no teeth and consume a lot of raw vegetables (onions, garlic, shallots, fresh fruits and vegetables, etc.).
c) Diet for fatty diabetes.
The diet should be low in carbohydrates and lipids depending on the subject and his daily activities. Take into account a ration of 1.5 kg of carbohydrate per kilogram of ideal weight of the patient. If the subject is overweight with excess fat, we will make sure to bring him back to his normal weight. He must eliminate fast sugars from his diet (white sugar, honey, pastries, jams, chocolates, sweets, dried fruits, syrups, alcohols, tobacco, etc.) and favor slow sugars (country rice, whole grains, potatoes , yams, potatoes, cassava, bread, wholemeal bread, fresh seasonal fruits, etc.). Lean meats and fish, eggs, cheeses, yogurts, etc.
Eat lots of vegetables and eat at regular times without snacking. Medical supervision is imperative. Drink from time to time mineral waters (possotomè, fifa, anza, vichy, etc.) without neglecting the trace elements (zinc, nickel, cobalt, copper, etc.) and daily walking.
