How Fatty Fish Can Help With DiabetesNovember 5, 2018 1:27 am
November is American Diabetes Month. Diabetes affects more than 100 million Americans who are either living with the disease or living with pre-diabetes. The disease is touching 1 in every 3 Americans as well as the families of those who love them. It is not unreasonable to say that Diabetes touches all Americans.
When you visit us at our Orange Urgent Care Center, we want to be your partner in health. This extends to all aspects of your health including nutrition and the types of foods that can keep you healthy. One type of food that may not jump right out for you as being incredible healthy is fatty fish. Fish such as salmon and mackerel are good for a healthy diet and also present some benefits for those who are afflicted with diabetes.
Fatty fish contain Omega-3 fatty acids which provide a tremendous boost to your heart health. Given that diabetics are at a higher risk of heart disease and stroke, fatty fish are one of the most highly recommended fish to include in ones diet.
One added benefit to this great food is that it is a great source of high-quality protein which keeps you full and improves your metabolic rate.
If you are living with diabetes or know someone who is, he/she should be seen regularly by a specialist in the field. If you have questions, we can help point you in the right direction for the information that you need.
