1. Myth- Eating sugar causes diabetes
Fact According to American Diabetes Association
only eating too much of sugar alone doesnt
always lead to diabetes, it also depends on many
other factors. Type 1 diabetes is caused by
genetics and possibly an autoimmune response to a
trigger. Whereas, Type 2 diabetes is caused by
heredity and various factors such as overweight
or obese, being sedentary, too much of stress,
having high blood pressure.

2. Myth- No to carbohydrates
  • Fact- Zero or low carb diet are becoming quite
    popular. However, Carbohydrates can never be
    anyones enemy. They give us the energy to
    perform voluntary functions like walking,
    driving, talking as well as involuntary functions
    like respiration, blood circulation, digestion
    etc.
  • It is never the carb alone rather the type of
    carb, quality and quantity of carb are what is
    very much important for those with diabetes.

3. Myth- Diabetic people can never have rice.
  • Fact- Rice is one of the staple foods in India.
    So instead of saying no to rice carbs, thinking
    it to be one of the main causes of diabetes,
    choose the right type of rice that gives right
    carbs.
  • Diabetic people should always choose unpolished
    or semi polished rice and avoid white rice. For
    eg- brown rice or red rice can be good options
    for diabetics.

4. Myth- Potatoes cannot be consumed if
diabetic.
  • Potatoes are high in carbs, but one can still
    enjoy them in moderation. Instead of having
    potato alone, make healthy combinations by
    preparing potato with protein sources such as
    green peas, or potato in a salad with veggies
    such as broccoli can be consumed.
  • One can have a cheat meal once a week. The
    recommended quantity will be 50 g which is a
    small sized potato or if medium sized, take ½
    portion.

5. Myth- Say goodbye to sweets and desserts
forever.
  • Fact- No need to restrict sweets completely. We
    believe sweets and desserts are the causes of
    diabetes. Yes, they do contribute but According
    to the National Institutes of Health, restricting
    yourself too much may eventually lead to binge
    eating or overeating. So the most important part
    is not to restrict rather control the portion
    size. Get over with the mentality of all or
    nothing.
  • Take a small portion for example, in case of ice
    cream can have 1 or 2 tbsp once in 15 days or
    choose a healthier option such as blend thick
    curd with fresh fruit and have once a week.

6. Myth- For Diabetes, fruits should be
restricted
  • Fact- According to American Diabetes Association,
    all fruits are allowed but you will need to keep
    in mind that fruits with high glycemic index need
    to be taken in a smaller portion.
  • For example, fruits high in glycemic Index such
    as Banana, Mango, Jackfruit, Custard apple etc.
    can be taken in 50 g only while fruits with a low
    glycemic index like apple, orange, mosambi,
    papaya, pine apple, pomegranate can be 100 g.

7. Myth- Sugar-free products are healthy
  • Fact If you think sugar free products are great
    ways for prevention of diabetes, you are wrong.
    Sugar-free products often contain artificial
    sweeteners. Artificial sweeteners are the
    chemical or natural compounds that can replace
    the sweet taste of sugar without adding any
    calories.
  • Wow! Isnt that great? The benefit of sugar
    without its side effect!! Ideally no.
  • Yes, it is true that it doesnt add on to
    calories but you tend to eat more high calories
    food otherwise, as it increases the appetite.

8. Myth- Diabetic people should not exercise
much
  • Fact Doctors always advice routine physical
    exercises for diabetes. Exercise helps burn the
    extra fat, reduces stress levels and helps
    control cholesterol and diabetes sugar levels. It
    also increases insulin sensitivity.
  • 30-40 mins of exercise (eg-walking/ yoga) is very
    much recommended for diabetic people. It is
    desirable to have a 10 mins walking session,
    keeping a gap of 45 mins after dinner.

9. Myth Diabetes diet is all about reducing
sugar and simple carbs
  • Fact- Its not only about simple sugar (Table
    sugar) and simple carbs to be avoided for the
    prevention of Diabetes. Yes, simple sugars need
    to be avoided or controlled, for example, stop
    taking table sugar in food and beverages.
  • And avoid starchy products like potato/ white
    rice but along with that, we also need to keep a
    check on our consumption of refined food/
    Processed foods like ketchup/ sauces/ jams and
    jellies, packaged fruit juices that have a lot of
    sugar. Also in fruits, there is simple sugar, so
    it is better to have one fruit (100 g) and have
    it before sunset.
