sugar-free-barbecue-sauce can still be sweet
I know how you feel. Your doctor told you to use sugar-free-barbecue-sauce because your blood sugar is high or you already have diabetes.
I know because I am in the same boat. So you don't have to give up bbq-sauce just because of the diabetes or being at risk for diabetes.
Why diabetes is bad for you
Its basically like this once your blood sugar goes over 140 on a chemistry test your body's defense against infections,complications from vascular disease goes up.
insulin is the hormone our pancreas makes to keep blood sugar under control.
When the pancreas can't make enough insulin to keep up with the sugar in your body the blood sugar goes up causing all kind of problems. How can you help-avoid sugar in your foods when possible. there is sugar in enough foods that its hard to stay away from it.
If your like me you love barbecue-sauce. Now you have to use a sugar-free-barbecue-sauce just to stay healthy but the bbq sauce can still be pleasant.
The less sugar you eat in your diet the sweeter things will taste to you over time.
Made simple carbohydrates are starches but when broken down in our body they break down into sugars and for diabetcs that means we need more insulin to keep our bodies blood sugar normal.
Why is this ? Our body is more complicated then a
car,think of running your car with not enough oil in the oil tank. What will happen -thinks wear out and fail.
Think of insulin as your bodies oil,not enough insulin and thinks start to go bad-you develop overtimes problems with your kidneys,eyes,and other complications with you cardiovascular system making you at risk for heart attacks and strokes.
The good news is that cutting back carbohydrates can be done which will be part of the treatment of diabetes. Your doctor will give you medication such as more insulin or pills to try to raise the insulin level in the blood.
Barbecue is a good ingredient in you diet as its rich in protein and if you cook without sugar it will be even better for your health. You need to let your doctor know what your diet is and monitor your blood sugar with him. When I cut down on my carbohydrates and sugar my blood sugars went down.
