According to Humboldt General Hospital Director of Nutrition and Dietary
Services Tiffani Nalivka, understanding the effect of carbohydrate on
blood glucose levels is key to managing diabetes.
Nalivka said, "The key to keeping blood glucose levels at a healthy
goal is to balance the food you eat with your physical activity and any
pills or insulin you take."
She continued, "If you eat more carbohydrates than usual, you can
expect your blood glucose levels to be higher than usual. Likewise, if
you eat less, you can expect your blood glucose levels to be lower."
She added, "Finding the balance for yourself is important so you can
feel your best, do the things you enjoy, and lower your risk of diabetes
