Type 2 diabetes symptoms: The sign when sitting down that could signal the condition

Key dietary tips

There’s nothing you cannot eat if you have type 2 diabetes, but you’ll have to limit certain foods.

Foods with a high carbohydrate content will send blood sugar levels soaring so it is important to limit your intake.

Carbohydrate is broken down into glucose relatively quickly and therefore has a more pronounced effect on blood sugar levels than either fat or protein.

The NHS also recommends the following dietary tips:

  • Keep sugar, fat and salt to a minimum
  • Eat breakfast, lunch and dinner every day – do not skip meals
