Portion control keeps total calories in a range to allow for weight loss/prevent weight gain. Balance means eating protein along with carbs to slow absorption of the sugar, and prevent spikes. ...Read more

What would happen if you don't get enough food to eat when you are a diabetic?

What would happen if you don't get enough food to eat when you are a diabetic?

The sugar goes down: This happens to everyone, not just diabetics. We have a limited store of sugar/protein(which can be converted to sugar) which is being used constantly to keep body alive; thus must be replenished--via eating. Not eating=storage depletion. For diabetics, it is more concerning due to the use of medication which reduces the sugar. So, +meds and no food=danger of hypoglycemia. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
