Diet should be balanced. It should be containing vegetables.

The diet plan for a diabetic is based on height, weight, age, sex, physical activity and nature of diabetes. While planning diet, the dietician has to consider complications such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels.

Exchange meal plan is a diet program which balances the amount of carbohydrate that we intake per day.
